Why Vegan Chinese Takeaways?

In today’s meat, egg, dairy, and fishing industries, piglets’ tails may be docked without painkillers, chickens’ throats are cut while they’re still conscious, cows are forcibly separated from their beloved calves, and fish are cut open while they’re still alive.

Vegan foods have a smaller carbon footprint, as the meat industry is a leading producer of the greenhouse gases that contribute to the climate catastrophe.

Eating vegan also lowers a person’s risk of developing heart disease and cancer.
