I do support it and I feel it’s a best way to help animals and its becoming life style also in India talks a lot about it and parallelly they know about same but still it will take some more time in few cities specially city like Agra where I am working now.
its science proven it’s a lot health benefits too –
Vegan diets naturally tend to reduce your calorie intake. This makes them effective at promoting weight loss without the need to actively focus on cutting calories.
Vegan diets may reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes. They are also particularly effective at reducing blood sugar levels and may help prevent further medical issues from developing.
