Vegans already only make up a small percentage of the human population, but I'm going to convince the rest of that percentage that they should never ever go vegan. Going vegan is shown to benefit not only each person, but the animals and environment as well. But who cares about that? Here are the top 10 reasons not to go vegan.

1. You want to keep your cholesterol high.

I mean really, who wants lower cholesterol? That stuff is great for you.

2. You want to have an increased risk of coronary heart disease.

Heart disease? Sign me up. As long as I get my meat.

3. You don't want to save water.

Yeah, water is just one important element we need to survive. And yeah, meat production uses up way too much water, but bacon though.

4. You want an increased risk of cancer.

Cancer runs in my family, but I don't have to worry about it. Because bacon.

5. You don't want to save animals.

Animals? Who cares about them? They were put here for us, duh. Therefore, we can make their entire existence a torturous hell. Oh wait, I'm an animal? Well, yeah, you're right, but humans are the only important animal.

6. Greenhouse gas emissions aren't an important issue.

It's not like these emissions affect every living being on the planet, because we all share the same Earth and ozone.

7. You don't want a decreased risk of type ll diabetes.

Who wants to give up bacon for health? C'mon! Be realistic. Bacon over health any day.

8. You want to continue killing our only planet.

It may be our only planet, but YOLO right?

9. You don't want the future to be sustainable.

I won't be around to see the end anyways. My kids might, though. Who cares about them.

10. Your taste buds are more important than the entire planet.

Amen! Live for the now, not for the future! My preferred taste is way more important than something that affects everything on this Earth.



Note: Obviously this is all sarcasm. Don't get too offended.

Have you noticed that you're drinking a lot more than you used to during the Pandemic? You're not alone.

I too in recent weeks have noticed that I'm drinking more than normal, and earlier in the day. I've started having a glass of wine with lunch a few days a week, something I never used to do. Although, a recent Odyssey survey shows that most Americans are starting to drink between 4 and 8 pm.

These Phoebe Buffay Outfits Prove She's A '90s Fashion Icon — We're Replicating EVERY Single One

In case you needed another reason to love our favorite coffee shop singer.

NBC

I've always been described as the Phoebe of my friend group — not just for being a vegan, animal-loving people pleaser, but also for the false sense of confidence in my singing and athleticism.

I consider it a compliment to be labeled a Phoebe. Besides her general warmth, I was always drawn to her hippy-chic vibes and passion for environmentalism before it was even cool to be vegan or to care about the planet. The way she carelessly ran through parks flailing her limbs without a care mimicked her effortlessly eccentric style.

I Talked To My Friend About Her Cystic Fibrosis And Wow, CF Patients Are WARRIORS

Not many people can say they've had a double lung transplant.

Alissa Katz

Forty percent of the United States lives with a chronic disease. These diseases are unique in their own way, but one thing is the same — every individual who lives with a chronic condition faces obstacles because of their disease.

Not only do these illnesses require a lot of education for the individuals who have them, but for the community as a whole. The more we as a society know about these diseases, the more well-rounded (and ideally, helpful) we'll be. If anything, we'll have a greater appreciation for the strength individuals with chronic conditions show on a daily basis.
