    It's allways halal if you eat vegan.

    Mine is a very strange one: I progressively reduced my meat intake (mainly red meat) over years for environmental reasons.

    One day a friend of mine said that he was thinking about trying a carnivore diet (only animal products). I had a lot of free time at that moment, so I prepared a PowerPoint for him explaining every issue related to the production of animal foods. (It may seem too preachy, but the guy is a true fan of PowerPoint presentations).

    For once, I couldn't believe that, for basically every possible threat our planet is facing, animal agriculture was the number one, two or sometimes three reason. It is so unefficient, a cause of world hunger, main driver of species extinction..... I knew I couldn't call myself an environmentalist if I consumed those products on a regular basis. Still, I wasn't thinking about giving up all my consumption forever.

    Then, as a footnote on the presentation, I wanted to address the ethical aspect. Deep in our hearts, we all know that no nice things go on in these farms, let alone the slaughterhouses.

    But I was so naive.

    I was absolutely horrified when I read and watched how it all works. I couldn't believe both the numbers (for food, 86 billion land animals and 1-3 trillion marine animals) and the extent of cruelty we inflict on them. I can't possibly imagine a hell that is worse than the Dominion documentary.

    I have always called myself an animal lover, so I thought: "Man, who are you trying to convince with these slides? You can't stop this from happening, but you won't give those industries one more € to kill on your behalf."

    So the presentation didn't make my friend vegan, but it made me! (He didn't go carnivore, at least)

    In addition to the standard stereotypical vegan jokes and bullying, a study found that:

    One-quarter of vegan subjects said that a friend cut communication with them soon after announcing their veganism.

    Anxiety about revealing one’s vegetarianism/veganism was a problem for over one-third of veggie and vegan participants.

    Over 40% of vegetarian individuals and over half of vegan respondents reported experiencing everyday prejudice, preparing for potential discrimination, and employing coping strategies.

    Veganism is an ethical commitment to oppose the exploitation of nonhuman animals.
