If you haven't watched What The Health, I'm shocked. Everyone and their mom has seen it, which means everyone has an opinion on it. This documentary basically shares information that eating meat can be seriously harmful to the body. They claim that the vegan lifestyle is the way to go if you want to live better and longer.
If you were convinced to switch up your lifestyle because of this film like thousands of others have, then this article is for you. And if you're not making the switch, these places are still unreal for vegans and meat lovers!
