Vegan Said To Be Largest on Earth

March 2009

Americans have long equated animal protein (e.g. chicken, milk, and eggs) with growth, strength, and good health, and they assume that without animal protein, we would fast become sickly and weak.

To most, a vegetarian or vegan diet seems odd and incomplete. But, consider this fact in support of how nutritious, strength-supporting, and satisfying this lifestyle is:

The African elephant (Loxodonta africana) is the largest land animal in the world. A full-grown female can weigh between 7,000 and 10,000 pounds (three to five tons), reaching heights of 10 feet from the toe to the shoulder while a full-grown male can weigh between 9,000 and 14,000 pounds (four to seven tons) and stand as tall as 14 feet. Elephants are herbivores, which means that they only eat plant material.

When confronted with research that supports that animal foods create disease, people are most confused about protein and where their daily source will come from. They also worry about getting enough protein from a plant-based diet. The fact is that if the diet is sufficient in calories, it will also be sufficient in protein.

After all, if an elephant can grow big and strong eating a plant-based diet, and remain big and strong eating a plant-based diet, can't you?
