The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated - Mahatma Gandhi
According to many reports many people across the world are trying vegan diet for few days. Some people are trying vegan fare to lose weight, and some people are trying vegan fare, as they are concerned about environment. Some people are trying vegan food, after seeing the horrible conditions of cows, pigs, veals and chickens in factory farms.
Thanks to Peta and Youtube. The sufferings endured by innocent animals is exposed. Many people are watching very sad videos of dairy cows in India and United States, and have made up their mind to go vegan.
I'm in United States and it is really easy to thrive on a vegan diet with some planning. Super markets from coast to coast carry variety of non-dairy milk, seitan, tofu , non-dairy icecream and vegan chocolates. Popular stores such as Costco, Whole Foods and Trader Joe's are awash with numerous vegan food items.
