Many people become vegan because of how animals are treated and enslaved however I didn't stop eating animals because of the mistreatment of animals. I was ignorant of it. I stopped eating meat because I was in a constant mental state of delirium caused by the many Mercury fillings that were placed in my teeth as a child. Eating mainly a lot of carrots, broccoli and cauliflower helped with removing the Mercury out of my brain. I don't feel vegan even though by definition I am. Is it possible not to eat animals and not be considered vegan?
