Transcript of Vegan Prezi
Check out these other sources!!!! It's a personal choice. Created by: Lauren Krassilowsky,
Adrienne Wiebe &
Scott Taylor What isVeganism? “A way of living which excludes all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, the animal kingdom, and includes a reverence for life. It applies to the practice of living on the products of the plant kingdom to the exclusion of flesh, fish, fowl, eggs, honey, animal milk and its derivatives, and encourages the use of alternatives for all commodities derived wholly or in part from animals.” It is believed that to be vegan, you have to have money. Fresh fruits and vegetables are quite expensive, that is why many families with a low income tend to purchase many processed foods, and tend to stay away from the healthier options. A frozen pepperoni pizza for $4 to feed a family seems a lot more cost effective than 3 bell peppers for the same price. Have you ever considered the price of meat? Healthy meat options such as chicken and extra lean beef is quite expensive as well. Extra lean ground beef can cost a person over $5 for just over 1 pound (straight from the farm excluded of course). Watch This!!!! What about milk? I spend a lot of money a week to buy milk, because I use it for many things: drinking straight, cereal, Hamburger Helper, Kraft Dinner, white Russians, Oreo dipping, smoothies, milkshakes, in my coffee, and if I could make my own soups I would probably use it there too!!
And that stuff ain't cheap! The milk alternative of soy milk is actually more expensive per quart, but you would use less of it because that crap would taste awful in Kraft Dinner! So, in an economic sense, it doesn't actually cost more to be a vegan (it actually may be cheaper). It costing more to be a vegan is actually a myth. However, I would rather pay a bit more for a nice steak than eat sprouts (personal opinion). The term is not intended as a label of exclusion or moral superiority. Anyone who commits to a vegan philosophy is a vegan, regardless of ancestry, religion, shape, age, or hat size, or how cool or uncool one is deemed to look. There is no vegan music or dress style. Being vegan does not make a person better or put anyone into an exclusive club. Most vegans, rather, respect all animals, including humans, and view everyone with equal respect, and cultivate the attitude that would make anyone feel welcome to sit down at a table with them. Why Veganism?

Vegetarian diets even got a plug in the 2010 Dietary Guidelines (U.S. Department of Agriculture), which stated that
“vegetarian eating patterns contribute to positive health outcomes such as lower levels of obesity, reduced risk of cardiovascular disease and lower total mortality.”
Yes, fellow canivores, we will die sooner than the Vegans. Ouch. But wait...there ARE some SERIOUS downsides!!!
