A very real but subtle war is quietly being waged against those who would challenge the status quo. Government's are reliant on the huge profits generated through animal agriculture. And with a looming pensions crisis and creaking health services around the world it could be argued that governments don't want us to live the extra 7 good years that a vegan diet could provide us with.

Vegans are used to having their beliefs challenged, to having to work harder to get other people and institutions to accept their child's needs. As it is this needs to change, but threatening parents who are trying to give their children the best start in life with imprisonment is unacceptable.

Nearly all the 4.9million pigs reared in Britain at any one time are kept on intensive units in distressing conditions. From the gigantic to the ramshackle, these factory farms have one thing in common: they thwart all natural instincts of the pig.

We tell boys to be brave, to 'man' up. If they are gentle or show emotion they are often called a 'girl', as if that was a weakness. Compassion is seen as a feminine characteristic, undesirable in men - with tragic consequences.

Veganism Vs Eating Disorders

Katie Simon Phillips | Posted 07.06.2016 | UK Universities & Education
Katie Simon Phillips

In an ideal world obviously I would love for everyone to be vegan, so I don't want this post to be seen as telling people with eating disorders to run off and bite the nearest sheep immediately. What I am saying is that if you are vegan or have a friend who has recently turned vegan, be sure to question it (especially if they have a history of eating disorders), and be fully aware of why that choice has been made.

Animal Agriculture's Environmental Impact Is Still Being Ignored

Jimmy Pierson | Posted 04.06.2016 | UK
Jimmy Pierson

Why has animal agriculture been brushed conveniently under the carpet? There is of course intense pressure from an extremely powerful meat and dairy lobby, the extent of which should not be underestimated. There also remains historical links between consuming meat and social status, and misinformation about the need for animal products in a healthy diet.

Whilst I will always argue that the motivation for asking such questions should be in the interests of the animals who we exploit, I don't think it hurts for me to make my next point. Which is, unless we can put aside our arrogance and realise we must exist alongside, rather than in control of, other species, chances are we'll be joining the endangered list soon enough ourselves.

Jasmijn de Boo

For the last decade, The Vegan Society has been asked on a weekly basis how many vegans there are, and all we've been able to say in recent years was that we thought numbers would probably have doubled since 2006. On occasion, I've also replied that everyone eats vegan food on a daily basis, but that vegans just eat a little more plant-based than others.
