Why would anyone even want to entertain the idea of being a vegan? Beef - it's what's for dinner were told. I don't know about you, but I am a meat eater through and through.

Today, on the Top 5 at 7:45, I'll highlight my top 5 reasons as to why we should not be a vegan. The Top 5 at 7:45 airs weekdays on KGAB Mornings with me, Gary Freeman and brought to you by First Education Federal Credit Union.

  1. If you don't eat it, somebody else will
  2. I don't like behaving like a rabbit.
  3. I need all the essential amino acids at the right ratios which are found in animal proteins.
  4. I like natural vitamins instead of taking those ok'd by the USDA.
  5. It hasn't been proven that saturated fats are harmful by eating eggs, meat and other animal bi-product. After all, Grandpa lived to be 88 and at fatback, greens and steak all the time. Right?
