    Health reasons. It makes me feel good. I feel better as a vegan.

    I dated a Vegan once... she was very selfish, inconsiderate, and temperamental.

    Supplement with a B-12 spray that has methylcobalamin. You won't miss out on other nutrients as long as you don't eat junk vegetarian food. The main point of going vegan is to have as much fresh food and healthy fats as possible, not eat fortified pasta all day.

    Ethically...

    Ethically...

    If you have an issue with McDonalds, it doesn't mean you can't buy choice cuts of grass fed meat. I ate $200 worth of ham last week over two sittings - small but healthy quantities. There are regions of the world that require meat to sustain human life. The Dalai Llama had to eat meat for years when he contracted hepatitis, so it's a health bonus for many. Chinese swear by bone broths. Your issue isn't with eating meat, but the mass production and consumption of it with hormones.

    Its funny how often one reads the "you must carefully watch what you eat" critique of the vegan diet. Yet one never sees the same comments wrt the SAD (Standard American Diet). With the SAD you get 4x the protein and fat you need and 1/4 the fiber you need. And with the SAD you get heart disease, type 2 diabetes, et. al.

    No. Who would breed and raise them?

    Would they survive in the wild?

    Kind of a asshole thing to do to domesticate a animal isn't it?

    Even if most people decided to stop killing cows and chickens for meat, people would still likely consume milk and eggs so they would be taken care of.

    Also if allowed the space i'm sure cows and chickens would be just fine, plenty of grass and worms in the world for them to live off of, they would gradually become feral and wild again.

    I'v been eating a vegan diet for over 2 years now.

    I started by eating organic, using natural products and becoming health conscious. Then started a vegetarian diet for ethical purposes. After I became vegetarian I watched the documentaries and had seen the farm factory horror stories, and It became clear to the me that even though I stopped eating meat, I was still paying for the torture and death of animals through milk and eggs. Thats when I started a vegan diet.

    My reasons for having started and maintaining a animal product free, organic diet would be for ethical, health and environmental purposes.

    One thing that I have learned is that having a vegan or vegetarian diet doesn't make you healthy. Eating healthy makes you healthy. It's entirely possible to have a terribly unhealthy vegan diet, and a optimal health non-vegetarian diet, as long as the consumption of vegetables is very high and consumption of animals products is low along with a proper exercise regime.

    Cows would be fine, chickens not so much. Everything eats chickens.

    As was mentioned earlier, it's not that difficult to be an ethical omnivore.

    Why would everyone in the world become vegan? What kind of hypothetical is this?

    I assumed you where saying that, what if in the future, people in mass amounts started consuming less meat due to ethical or health purposes, that cows and chickens would die off. Because that would sound like a somewhat feasible hypothetical.

    If your hypothetical is "What if everybody started a 100% strict vegan diet overnight" then I didn't mean to dignify that with a response.

    I'm always amused by the number of people who mispronounce the word vegan. They say it "vejan". I usually don't correct them.

    I admit I am not vegetarian and I should try a more vegetarian diet

    I just love listening to vegan talk, not that I can do it. I love fish, eggs and beef too much.
