VEGAN HEALTH BENEFITS

HUMANE FOR ANIMALS
There are so few examples of animals truly being treated humanely that are bound for being a part of someone’s meal. We do not need to eat animals to survive or even live a good life. So many people find their life and lifestyles and their connection to the planet so much better after changing to vegan. It creates such a compassionate view on life inside and out. Listen to Marla’s thoughts on treatment of animals on farms that people will end up consuming.
