relying on science to validate veganism and our basic herbivore physiology, we
may do better by calling attention to universal truths: animals are undeniably
capable of suffering; our physical bodies are strongly affected by thoughts,
feelings, and aspirations; and we cannot reap happiness for ourselves by sowing
seeds of misery for others. Nor may we be free while unnaturally enslaving
others. We are all connected. These are knowings of the heart and veganism is,
ultimately, a choice to listen to the wisdom in our heart as it opens to
understanding the interconnectedness and essential unity of all life.
