Humans really aren’t at the top of the food chain, we’re actually at the bottom. Nothing needs us in order to survive, NOTHING. But we rely on everything. The earth and everything it contains can easily live without us, but we need everything the world offers to live. We rely on the plants (and unfortunately some people rely on animals) for food, and we use the earth’s resources for our man made creations (creation in the human world but a form of destruction in the natural world). Nothing depends on us, but we depend on everything.
cutiebuttkiller-deactivated2013 fragte: A lot of vegans, even those who are for specifically ethical reasons, have or have had an eating disorder. Huh.
Veganism is a great way to cope or overcome ED since it re-evaluates how we see and interact with food. Personally, I have not had the healthiest relationship with food and my body in the past, and though I did not seek veganism in order to help myself or become more healthy, it has inadvertently made my life, and how I keep myself alive, easier. I have seen some people currently suffering through ED shy away from turning vegan because they believe it will only make the healing process more difficult. I would encourage them to go vegan anyway, so long as they can get into the mindset that it is not a limitation of food (as far as the dietary aspects of veganism goes) but an exploration of food, particularly for the purpose of aiding animals, the planet, and other human beings.
