About Me I'm vegetarian since 1997 and vegan since 2004 for ethical reasons.
I always loved animals. As a child, I did not understood why I had to eat them. But my parents and everyone I knew always said that we have to eat meat or we get sick...
Only when I went to university I had been able to quit of eating meat once for all.
In that time, and with access to the internet, I've read some texts, discovered the websites of PETA, Vegan Society, Viva... and listened to other vegetarians and everything makes more and more sense to me, I become aware about the reasons to become vegetarian, like health, environment, economics, world hunger, animal exploitation, and so on.
Today I knew that I'm going to be vegan for life. Well...maybe raw vegan soon :)
I only regret myself for not becoming vegan earlier :-)
