I’ve had people say to me that they think veganism is unhealthy because when you look at some vegan products they have long lists of ingredients sometimes with names of things people don’t understand. What people don’t understand is that meat, eggs or dairy is not one ingredient, it is a general term, an umbrella term used to describe a heap of things that go into that one umbrella ingredient. What the animals are fed, where they have lived, who they are, who their parents were, what illnesses they have had, how they have been selectively bred over centuries etc etc all make up the composition of organic and inorganic chemicals in the umbrella term; meat, diary, eggs. Thus meat, dairy and eggs is not one ingredient like most people think. It’s just that vegan food legally has to list the ingredients and meat, dairy and eggs don’t. I actually think it’s great because you know exactly what you are getting…. can’t guarantee what you’re getting when you eat animal products due to such poor labelling.
