I'm wondering what percentage of vegans actually have knowledge of and interest in animal rights. For you is being a vegan a health decision which benefits animals or is it an ethical decision with health benefits, or something else. Ethical vegans obviously oppose using animals for research, entertainment, clothing, competition etc. but how do vegans primarily interested in being healthy feel about these issues. As a vegan how do you feel about this question and what are your experiences in nteracting with other vegans.

This question was asked in 2013. It is almost 2016. Why haven't any of you vegans answered this question. This person may not even be alive today being a meat consumer.
I am embarrassed answering the questions.
I was tired of the opposition on here felt it was a waste of time and left.
I have interest in animal rights, mainly I keep it here at home and hope those millions of dollars that go to animal rights groups go to helping the welfare of factory farmed animals. Meat eating is a reality we live with. Lions do it because they have to, so do dogs, cats and other natural carnivores. Human do it because early on in evolutionary history they practiced it during later evolution by hunting, it even changed their blood type, which makes it difficult for them not to consume meat products, but earlier they, like their ancestors mainly consumed vegetation, grains, and fruit, and this is where we get our wisdom teeth from, they are useless to us and almost everyone has to have them pulled, because cattle our ancestors had elongated jaws for chewing grains and this is where problem left over teeth present a problem.
I protect my wild life around my house.
Unlike most vegans for me it is based upon morality not the health, and I had no idea how my health was going to be affected. The problem is and don't laugh, I don't much care for this life or the cold earth and I'm getting healthier and younger every day, I'm wondering what I will do if I don't die early on in life, because I'm older and been single with no children all my life, and when you get older usually you have someone to drive you to where you need to go and look after you. Instead of just dying you are getting better and better although you are still fairly old.
I strongly dislike other vegans and vegetarians. I have never gotton along with one on the internet they seem pious like they are special or something. I'm like a meat eater, live around country people, except vegan.
Sorry no one answered your question. Perhaps if you continue eating meat you can hang out with some farm animals some time and get close to their cold world.

I have always cared about animal rights. I have been a vegan since I was 11 years old. I try my best to go throu life and be kind to all forms of life. I don't like the circus or sea world bc I dont like animals to be trapped. I have met other vegans i think is beginning to more and more common. We need more options on the menus for vegans / vegetarians.

I started late in my life. I wish I could say I started at 11 years old. That would be the greatest unfortunately I spent a life time of ignoring animal abuse and eating it, some times the meat would taste spoiled and unusually bloody this would make your mouth puker and cause stomach aches, and no wonder I was eating filty animal abuse. There is no way to turn the clock back. I hate it. Later in life I would drive by a slaughter houses about two stories high with coveyer belts throwing out leg bones. I said inside I'd change my ways and never did because I was too weak. Later in life I became a vegetarian, but that animal in it caused cravings to eat, only when I became vegan with no animal did my hunger disappear. I can live off almost nothing. Good to hear from you. Blessings to you in your world.
