Much of the food that is grown in the world is not being eaten by humans. In fact, 70% of the grain grown in the US feeds livestock, and, globally, 83% of farmland is reserved to raise animals. It is estimated that 700 million tons of food that could be consumed by humans goes to livestock each year.
Combats Animal Cruelty: Every day
often without thinking — we make a series of small decisions about the foods we put in our bodies. Animals are subjected to horrible conditions — including cramped, unsanitary living quarters, lack of sunlight and persistent disease — encountered in factory farms. Animals aren’t only killed but are often slaughtered and killed gruesomely and inhumanely. Animals often die, in extreme fear, terror, and anxiety. Animals — yes, even fish — are complex creatures that are fully capable of experiencing pain and joy. To treat animals in this deplorable way have ethical consequences, and to consume animals that die in these extreme altered exaggerated energy states will affect humans in their consumption of them

All the nutrients you need and probably do not get enough of are provided by vegan diet.
Fresh vegetables fruits and other vegan staples are jam packed with other nutrients that meat simply does not provide.you can get all the protein you need from peanut butter,quinoa ,lentils,beans nuts,broccoli and much much more.The world health organization just released a report further outlining the risk of colorectal cancer from regular red and processed meat consumption.
Hundreds of millions of people do not have access to clean water. Livestock consume more freshwater than just about anything else. They are also one of the biggest polluters of freshwater. It takes 100 to 200 times more water to raise a pound of beef than it does to raise a pound of plants. Agriculture accounts for about 70% of freshwater use, making it “the world’s largest water-consuming sector.” Meat and dairy products lead the way in agricultural water use. Producing just one pound of beef requires 1,800 gallons of water (that’s the equivalent of about 100 showers for the average American!). Another study estimated that if the United States reduced animal product consumption even by half, our food production would require 37% less water
