Some suggest that when we eat animal products, we eat the negative vibrations of an animal which suffered, or died a terrifying and painful death. Others point out that in the case of meat, hormones such as adrenaline may still be present in the flesh of the tortured animal and so are taken into our bodies. Perhaps this explains the feeling of lightness experienced by many new vegans.
When we eat food, the nutrients are used to build new cells. The food becomes us, and so we literally are what we eat. We can choose what we want our bodies to be made of – nutritious plant foods, or the flesh and secretions of abused creatures. It’s a choice between life and death – not just for animals but for the planet, ourselves and other people.
