Is it for health reasons? Ethical reasons? Or something else?

Just curious what percentage of veg people are in it for what reason.

I'm vegetarian for health reasons: the health of the animals I would otherwise be eating.

(Not original. I think it was Isaac Bashevis Singer who first said that.)

Ethics!! All creatures have the right to live free from chains - including humans! We are all connected; I revere all life and value peace, freedom and love.

A variety of reasons, primarily ethical reasons. Working around animals made me think, no - we can do better than this. It's just not necessary.

Second is health - I have always struggled with my weight and have lost a lot of body fat since going vegan, plus I feel fitter and happier in general.

Primary is health, I was selfish, I wanted to feel better about my body and live longer in this world.

Secondary is environment, I need a world to live in. I figure the longer we can survive in it, the better chance we have of getting on top of our decision making and how bad it is.

I am concerned about animal rights, but this is my order.
