What convinced me to be (mostly)raw(mostly vegan) was logic, not ethics. I have cystic acne, figured I could clear it with diet, researched, experimented, and success. Why are you raw?
And if you're vegan based on the stance that its wrong to force animals into suffering, you must be antinatalist, right? And if not, isn't that contradictory?
I went raw for health reasons (bad digestive problems), but i found my love of animals through that. to be honest, i couldn't stand animals before i found raw because i was allergic to anything with fur.
