Keep “Vegan” in raw vegan.

December 26, 2010

Keep “Vegan” in raw vegan. It is there for a reason. Being Raw Vegan is not just about your own health…its also about compassion for all living beings and the health of this planet. I’m tired of so-called “raw food experts”- many of whom have been raw just a few years- preaching that it is “ok” to eat meat and that eating meat is a way to “enjoy life”.

They argue that, after all, the Native Americans did it. But did Native Americans have barbaric factory farms back then too? Above all else, these so-called “experts” argue that we should sit in silence and not educate the world on the compassion of being vegan because it is everyone’s free choice as to what they eat.

I believe in free choice. But free choice only comes when people are fully informed. Above all, I believe that people are compassionate in their hearts and will make the right choices when properly educated.

    Native Americans (and I am one of them) only took what they needed for sustenance and then only because they knew little of agriculture. Mankind did not originate in regions of the planet where there was not naturally abundant fruits and greens. The adoption of eating flesh was purely a survival decision never intended for thriving obviously.

    Steven, Thanks for sharing. I have been totally blown away by the change in so many of the “newer” raw foodists and the slant toward saying you “need” animal products. Also saying there are no “long-term” vegans who are healthy etc,etc. What about Donald Watson the man who coined the phrase in the first place. He lived a healthy, active life to the age of 95. And talk about being Vegan when it wasn’t popular or easy. Can you imagine being vegan in 1945?!
    Seriously, I am losing a lot of respect for a lot of folks. Especially at this moment when we have wonderful information from folks like Doctors Campbell and Essylstyn. And the incredible documentaries like Forks Over Knives.
    It breaks my heart to see these people jumping on the bandwagon with an idea just because possibly they are the ones who indeed “would eat meat if there were no other choices”
    Keep the info coming and thanks again!
