    I realized I want to live till I’m 120. There’s a lifestyle that I am now happily creating that can, as best as is possible, prevent most forms of cancer and other diseases.”

    Being vegan allows me to devote myself to my cause every day of my life."

    It happened through common sense really. I realised that by still eating eggs and dairy I was, in a way, still supporting the meat industry and animal cruelty."

    I just like not having a dependency on other forms of life. I like having a compassionate way of life.

    When I was 14 I found myself thinking that, in an affluent society, there was no real reason to eat meat – the idea that something died and I was eating it just for pleasure."

    "I stopped eating beef at 13 and stopped eating all meat a few years ago. I would feel guilty that what was on my plate was walking around yesterday. Either I could live with that or stop eating meat. I choose the latter, and I'm happier for it."

    Animal rights is important because you can really tell how civilized a society is by the way that it treats its animals.

    I watched this documentary about where meat comes from and what the animals are fed, so essentially you're eating that, too. I have a very fragile mind and it has been warped by that programme. Now I'm scared to death of eating meat."

    I just think it’s horrible that we lock animals up and subject them to cruelty just so we can eat them.

    'My main reason for going veggie was to opt out, just like I’ve opted out in other ways. I’ve rejected the cruelty and the politics that lie behind it all.'

    Vegan
    It wasn't that hard to become vegan for me. The only thing that was a little confusing was recognising animal ingredients that I never knew about before, such as gelatin or casein [milk protein]. Once you get familiar with that it's simple.

    “I have been vegetarian for over ten years. It was something that happened gradually, I just started eating less and less meat, I think my body was telling me to. I didn’t go vegetarian because of the animals, but the longer I have avoided meat, the more disgusted I am by what happens to them. When I look at meat, I see the animal it came from.”
  • Vegetarian
    I’m not in the habit of eating my friends.
  • Vegetarian
    You have to be pretty uninformed to eat meat in the 21st century, or live in some grand delusions that Father Corporation secretly cares.
  • Vegetarian
    Look, if you knew how meat was raised, you wouldn’t eat it.
  • Vegetarian
  • Kate Bush vegetarian
    Vegetarian
    I just could not stand the idea of eating meat - I really do think that it has made me calmer... People's general awareness is getting much better, even down to buying a pint of milk: the fact that the calves are actually killed so that the milk doesn't go to them but to us cannot really be right, and if you have seen a cow in a state of extreme distress because it cannot understand why its calf isn't there, it can make you think a lot."

    I'm totally against animal cruelty. I am vegetarian, so I don't have clothes, shoes or bags made from leather or suede or any animal products. I hate the thought of animals being killed just for our pleasure."

    "If you don't want to be beaten, imprisoned, mutilated, killed or tortured then you shouldn't condone such behaviour towards anyone, be they human or not. Could you look an animal in the eyes and say to it, 'My appetite is more important than your suffering?"
  • Vegan
    I see no difference between eating animals and paedophilia. They are both rape, violence, murder. If I'm introduced to anyone who eats beings, I walk away. Imagine, for example, if you were in a nightclub and someone said to you "Hello, I enjoy bloodshed, throat-slitting and the destruction of life," well, I doubt if you'd want to exchange phone numbers".
  • Vegetarian
    "I don’t want an animal to die for me to eat it. Life is life, full stop and I believe that life deserves to be respected, whether it’s the life of a human or a fly, it is a life. That’s the main reason why I don’t eat meat. Since I’ve changed my diet it’s enhanced my life in a way that I would definitely recommend to anyone.’’ “I feel psychologically and spiritually very positive, it makes me feel a million times better. Any nutrients you get from meat you can find in vegetables and pulses.”

    Eating dead bodies started freaking me out, you know? I always kind of loved animals and stuff but I think it really hit home…when you actually figure out what you’re eating and all the suffering that the animals go through. So that was it for me. It was real ethical and moral things initially."

    "I’ve always felt that animals are the purest spirits in the world. They don’t fake or hide their feelings, and they are the most loyal creatures on Earth. And somehow we humans think we’re smarter—what a joke."

    I found out about the animal cruelty and the torture that goes on, and I thought ‘that’s it – vegan’. It’s easy to make the switch.

    "I don't eat meat, fish, or eggs. I was never a big meat-eater, but I've got more energy now. I think there's something odd about eating another living anything."

    For far too long, the animals have had no voice to speak on their behalf and the years of silence have muted their screams. Now, through organisations like Viva!, those who truly care about animals can be their voice and can spread the word worldwide against the cruelties done against them in the name of diet. Stop eating animals and lend your voice too to our call for a better, kinder world.
  • Vegetarian
    "I remember a specific conversation with my mum, and she told me that pigs cry when they know they are going to die. … I just couldn't really contemplate being part of that process. … A really easy thing to help animals is to go vegetarian because you're just generally not being part of that process where they have to die for food". "Even before I went vegetarian, being told about how bad for you processed meat and all that stuff is … from a health point of view, it's not good for you".

    I’m really glad Viva! is campaigning against foie gras. It’s hideous and unnatural, it’s obscene, it - is - obscene, there are so many other amazing things people could be eating.

    Being vegetarian feels natural for me because I come from six generations of vegetarians and my dad is a Viva! supporter. I lost the taste for meat a long time ago, and hate the idea of putting money into the pockets of disreputable global businesses or fast-food chains.”
