I’ve been vegan for several years now, but ever since I recently became vocal about it, many of the questions/comments people have left seem to stem from common misconceptions, or myths that surround being vegan. [which is totally understandable]
But let me say this: Vegans typically have lower cholesterol levels, lower blood pressure, lower rates of Type 2 diabetes, lower body mass indexes, a lower risk of death from heart disease, and lower overall cancer rates. Science and research confirms that you don’t need meat to be healthy at all, in fact statistics point to quite the opposite.
No, your hair won’t fall out – mine’s healthy and shiny as hell. No, your skin doesn’t turn yellow or gray – mine’s never looked as healthy as it does now. No, if you eat right, you won’t get all skinny and weak – I have plenty of boobs and ass, and I’M HYPER AS F*CK!
For all of you who’ve asked me questions regarding being #vegan, I totally recommend checking out the FAQs on veganuary.com! I love you all!
