    Why I Eat Veggies and Thwart the Advances of the Big Mac Monster

    It Started Very Slowly For Me, But I'm Never Going Back

    I've been a vegetarian for almost year and a half now, but I've been restrictive on my meat intake for much longer. The first time I really didn't want to eat a certain type of meat was toward the end of my freshman year of high school.  We were dissecting fetal pigs...

    Vegan: A Kinder Way To Live =D

    There is a lot of cruelty within the egg and dairy industries. Hens crammed 5-6 in a cage for eggs (free range are packed into sheds by the thousands) and dairy cows artificially inseminated every cycle to give birth to a baby that will either be turned into veal or given back...

    Meat Free For 15 Years

    I started slow by eliminating red meat at first.  I started it because I wanted to lose weight.  Hasn't helped me with that any, but hopefully spared a few lives.  I always thought eating animals was disgusting, but didn't know about vegetarianism until I got...
