My 3 main reasons in more detail:
1. All living beings (animals and humans alike) have equal rights to a peaceful life free from suffering. They should never be used, harmed or consumed in any way. Veganism should seek to eradicate suffering as far as is possible. We can all live in harmony.
2. Our beautiful natural world and all of its delicate ecosystems are in danger of being irreversibly destroyed as a result of modern farming practices and the way humans now live. This makes Veganism an imperative course of action if we are to protect our planet as a safe home for a growing population of human life and all other earthlings.
2. Unbiased studies and research consistently show that a varied, well balanced, whole foods plant-based diet is by far the healthiest option for the human body. I'd like to live a long, healthy and productive life and if I don't need to consume animal 'products' to do that, then why would I?
Pretty simple, isn't it?
But I wasn't born Vegan and I didn't arrive at Veganism overnight. For me it was an evolution, an 'awakening' to this wonderful destination.

Surely the more important question is:
Why NOT Vegan?!
