If you’re vegetarian because you want to help animals, go vegan.
Vegetarianism subsidizes the meat industry and you are not making a positive impact if you support eggs and dairy. The egg and dairy industries are exceptionally cruel and there is no way to justify being an “ethical vegetarian.”
If you’re already avoiding mammal flesh, poultry, and fish (eating fish is not vegetarian) removing eggs and dairy from your diet is simple and healthy and the only way to reduce your contribution to animal suffering.
Go vegan. Live vegan. Stay vegan.
Take this advice.
Even if you’re one of those people who says, “Oh, I’ll go vegan soon… when I leave for college!”
“I’ll go vegan… After we move into our new apartment!… Once I get settled into my new job… When I buy a house… after my kids grow up… once I’m retired… I wish I had gone vegan back then.”
Now is the time to do it.
