This may make it easier for me to quickly and easily find posts or advice to help myself or others educate people who want to go vegan.

“I’m anemic.”

“Vegans don’t get b12”

“I’m allergic to nuts/soy”

“I have an eating disorder”

“I’m diabetic (type one) (type two)

“Veganism is too expensive”

How will I get my protein?

“If no one eats animals, they’ll take over and overpopulate!” Well actually the only reason why their are so many livestock animals is because we mass breed them to be able to meat the demand of about 500+ animals a year for probably 6 billion people in the world. If we stopped breeding them  we’d have less animals.

“What about plants? No one cares about plants?” Well it takes about 16x the vegetation to produce one pound of flesh than for me to just eat it myself:

“Farmers would lose jobs!” Farmers wouldn’t lose jobs, farmers would switch jobs. In any case, jobs in factory farms are dangerous, diseased, and often underpaid. It’s also usually poor people of colour who has to do them.
