Why Vegan?
Some people ask why we chose not to include animal products or by-products in our herbal supplements. Here are just a few reasons why:

We at Hope for Health have developed a particular philosophy of product purity and quality, and a total abstinence from any animal products. We believe that many of our diseases originate with the consumption of animal products and the way most of the animals are raised and kept.

As a result, if the animal products are in the vitamin and mineral supplements that we take, we are still putting ourselves at risk for the diseases that are caused by these ingredients. Take a look at so many of the products out there that claim to help you regain or maintain your health. They have ingredients that can actually cause more problems than you already have! At one time science supported the consumption of meat. It no longer does…

“The diet of the animals is vegetables and grains. Must the vegetables be animal-ized, must they be incorporated into the system of animals, before we get them? Must we obtain our vegetable diet by eating the flesh of dead creatures? Those who eat flesh are but eating grains and vegetables at second hand; for the animal receives from these things the nutrition that produces growth. The life that was in the grains and vegetables passes into the eater. We receive it by eating the flesh of the animal. How much better to get it direct!” Counsels on Diet & Foods*, pg. 396
FACT: Malnutrition and starvation will kill approximately 14 million people this year. If Americans reduced their intake of meat by just 10 percent, the land, water and energy freed up from growing livestock feed would feed 100 million people. Turning grain into flesh is extremely wasteful. Twenty vegetarians can be fed on the amount of land needed to feed one person on a meat-based diet.
“Could you know just the nature of the meat you eat, could you see the animals when living from which the flesh is taken when dead, you would turn with loathing from your flesh meats. The very animals whose flesh you eat, are frequently so diseased that, if left alone, they would die of themselves; but while the breath of life is in them, they are killed and brought to market. You take directly into your system humors and poison of the worst kind, and yet you realize it not.” Counsels on Diet & Foods, pg. 385
FACT: It takes about 300 gallons of water per day to produce food for someone who is totally vegetarian, but it takes more than 4,000 gallons of water per day to create the food needed to feed a meat-eater.
“The beef industry has contributed to more American deaths than all the wars of this century, all natural disasters, and all automobile accidents combined. If beef is your idea of “real food for real people” you’d better live real close to a real good hospital.” Neal Barnard, M.D.
A Yale University study revealed that vegetarians have nearly twice the stamina of meat-eaters. In this study, they used athletic meat-eaters, and compared them to vegetarians who did not participate in sports. Would you call that a fair study? Yet the vegetarians still won out.
Cornell University announced through major newspapers in May of 1990, “Humans are natural vegetarians.” The report said: “Animal foods, in general, are not really helpful and we need to get away from eating them.”
“Many die of diseases wholly due to meat eating, when the real cause is scarcely suspected by themselves or others. Some do not immediately feel its effects, but this is no evidence that it does not hurt them. It may be doing its work surely upon the system, yet for the time being the victim may realize nothing of it.” Counsel on Diet & Foods, p. 391
“Cancers, tumors, and all inflammatory diseases are largely caused by meat eating.” Counsels on Diet & Foods, pg. 388
FACT: The kidneys of the meat-eater must work three times harder than the kidneys of the vegetarian. In addition, although meat needs to pass through the digestive tract quickly, it takes four times longer than grains or vegetables.
“Many times when meat is eaten, it decays in the stomach, and creates disease. Cancers, tumors, and pulmonary diseases are largely caused by meat eating.” Counsels on Diet & Foods, pg. 384
In 1961, the “Journal of the American Medical Association” reported that a vegetarian diet could prevent 90-97% of heart diseases.
FACT: Studies reveal 59% less cancer among people who eat small amounts of meat, compared to average meat-eaters. (Imagine how much better those figures would be when compared to vegetarians.)
“Often, animals are taken to market and sold for food, when they are so diseased that their owners fear to keep them longer. And some of the processes of fattening them for market produce disease. Shut away from the light and pure air, breathing the atmosphere of filthy stables, perhaps fattening on decaying food, the entire body soon becomes contaminated with foul matter.” Counsels on Diet & Foods, pg. 385
FACT: Scotland has the highest rate of bowel cancer in the world and they eat 20% more meat than the English.
FACT: During World War I, Norway and Denmark could not get meat. The death rate dropped 17% and then returned to normal when they returned to their meat diets.
“If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be vegetarian.” Paul and Linda McCartney
FACT: In England, vegetarians pay less for life insurance. Studies show that vegetarians are stronger, more agile, have greater endurance, and recover from fatigue faster than meat-eaters.
FACT: The animals that are being raised for meat in the United States are diseased. The livestock industry attempts to control this disease by feeding the animals antibiotics. Huge quantities of drugs go for this purpose. Of all antibiotics used in the U.S., 55% are fed to livestock. But this is only partially effective because the bacteria that cause disease are becoming immune to the antibiotics. The percentage of staphylococci infections resistant to penicillin, for example, has grown from 13% in 1960 to 91% in 1988. These antibiotics and-or the bacteria they are intended to destroy reside in the meat that goes to market.
“The liability to take disease is increased tenfold by meat eating.” Counsels on Diet & Foods, pg. 386
FACT: Heart attack is the most common cause of death in the U.S., killing one person every 45 seconds. The male meat-eater’s risk of death from heart attack is 50%. The risk to men who eats no meat is 15%. Reducing one’s consumption of meat, dairy and eggs by 10% reduces the risk of heart attack by 10%. Completely eliminating these products from one’s diet reduces the risk of heart attack by 90%.
FACT: The common belief is that the U.S. Department of Agriculture protects consumers’ health through regular and thorough meat inspection. In reality, fewer than one out of every 250,000 slaughtered animals is tested for toxic chemical residues.
FACT: Ninety-nine percent of U.S. mother’s milk contains significant levels of DDT. In stark contrast, only 8% of U.S. vegetarian mother’s milk contains significant levels of DDT. This helps prove that the primary source of DDT is the meat ingested by the mothers.
FACT: Contamination of breast milk due to chlorinated hydrocarbon pesticides in animal products found in meat-eating mothers versus non-meat-eating mothers is 35 times higher.
FACT: The amount of the pesticide Dieldrin ingested by the average breast-fed American infant is 9 times the permissible level.
“Some animals are inhumanly treated while being brought to the slaughter. They are literally tortured, and after they have endured many hours of extreme suffering, are butchered.” Counsels on Diet & Foods, pg. 386
“Researchers found that red meat consumption has negative influences on body odor.” Chem Senses. 2006 Oct;31(8):747-52.
“Attitudes toward vegetarian diets have progressed from ridicule and skepticism to condescending tolerance, to gradual and sometimes grudging acceptance, and finally to acclaim.” Dr. Mervyn Hardinge – Third International Congress on Vegetarian Nutrition 1997
FACT: The amount of water used in production of the average cow is sufficient to float a destroyer (a large naval ship). While 25 gallons of water are needed to produce a pound of wheat, 5,000 gallons are needed to produce a pound of California beef. That same 5,000 gallons of water can produce 200 pounds of wheat. If this water cost were not subsidized by the government, the cheapest hamburger meat would cost more than $35.00 per pound!
