You know how it is… veganism seems to be everywhere you look nowadays. Whether it’s on social media, on TV, on the high street or even in the workplace, vegans seem to be everywhere, reeling off lists of good reasons why you should give up eating meat, dairy and eggs.

Whether it’s because of the horrific conditions animals are kept in on factory farms, the terrible suffering in abattoirs and slaughterhouses, damage to the environment, the effects of animal agriculture on climate change, the health dangers of cholesterol, saturated fat and processed meats… the list seems to be endless and every week there seems to be even more vegans telling you why you should care about these issues.

So in this post, I’m going to talk about 10 reasons NOT to go vegan.

If you’ve been looking for a counter-argument to all those vegan evangelists telling you what you should and shouldn’t eat, then this article is for you!

I’ll be exploring each of the following reasons in more depth, so you’ll be well armed with some decent arguments next time you find yourself in a debate about veganism.

I’ll be looking at which argument is the best and if you stick around until the end of the article I’ll give you an irrefutable, cast-iron reason that no-one will ever be able to argue with.

Here’s the 10 reasons NOT to go vegan which we’ll be examining:

  1. Animals eat other animals
  2. Being vegan is expensive
  3. We’d be overrun with animals if we didn’t eat them
  4. Animals wouldn’t exist if we didn’t eat them
  5. Vegans are weak, sickly and unhealthy
  6. Humans are top of the food chain
  7. I only eat free-range, humane meat, eggs and dairy
  8. People have always eaten animals
  9. Plants feel pain
  10. We’ve evolved to eat meat

Animals eat other animals

Eating meat is part of the cycle of life, right? Animals eat other animals. I mean, wolves eat elk and lions eat…
