I am almost 100% raw vegan, but I just can't seem to give up blue cheese dressing (and sometimes crouton) on salads. Reason is for health benefits

Meanwhile we are importing, not only lumber, steel, oil, but eggs, milk, and meat from other countries.
I can't kill much of anything, so I don't think it's right to have someone else do it for me. I am vegetarian 95% for the animals, the health benefits are a plus. I am slim, and not inclined to get sick.
I don't try to force my views upon others, but I do try to educate and influence. Facts are on our side.
Its true, if you read for example cases in N.C. factory farms. They were penalized for the violent abuses/beatings and worse against animals....Its not something people think about, but when you read about factory farming it really sinks in.

Also "The Jungle" by Upton Sinclair.

I became vegetarian when I was 15. I was eating a chicken burger at TGIF's and the bacon on it was not done, very chewy and the grey puppon sauce on top of it made me feel so sick. For months I couldn't even think of that burger without wanting to throw up. That was my turning point and I instantly became veg. The first 2 months were hard but then it was like nothing. Now I can't eat meat even if I wanted it, I just hate the smell and taste. But before this experience I was building up to becoming meat-free. That book "Diet for a new america" told about slaughter houses and all. I believe that if I can't kill and prepare the animal myself, I shouldn't support a meat company that does it for me.
