From Carnivore to Vegan Overnight

I've mentioned before that I have become a vegan. It's now had such an impact on my life that I'm going to write a whole post explaining why on earth I'd become a vegan, and why I'll be a vegan for life.

First, I should say that the term "vegan" isn't great. It's usually associated with freakshows who are so against killing animals that they won't wear leather. While I'm not going to frequent cockfights or go hunting, I have no problem with animals being killed. I like leather stuff, and animals dying is part of life with or without humans.

Another problem with the term "vegan" is that many vegans eat an unhealthy diet. They cut out meat, but don't add vegetables in their place, so they tend to eat a lot of refined grains. Doing that is more unhealthy than just eating meat.

Why I Became a Vegan

On Cameron Chardukian

For those of you who weren't aware, I'm a vegan.  I used to eat animal products, but haven't consumed any since November of 2011.  I'll write a post later this week on my experiences after a year and a half of veganism, but for now I'd like to share why I initially transitioned to this lifestyle.  I wrote about this right after making the transition so the following post is actually straight from 14 year old Cameron in December of 2011.
