[another commenter] about the negative influence.
I’ve been vegan for over four years. I’m never unsatisfied due to lack of animal products, it doesn’t have to be expensive, it requires no more effort than anything else of importance, it’s influenced my social life positively, and it’s the best lifestyle commitment I could think of making – for me, for the environment, and most importantly, for the billions of animals raised and killed each year for human consumption (as food and otherwise).
P.S.: Beyoncé & Jay Z most assuredly did not “go vegan” and even the eating vegan part of it can be argued. There are many, better examples of real people leading a compassionate lifestyle out there; anyone wishing to go vegan would be better aided by seeking out their stories, tips, and assistance.
