Hey guys,

I am vegan aside from eating honey, though I haven't in a long time anyway. I'm wondering why those who don't eat it, choose so? I don't see how it is cruel for the bees, but maybe it is. Let me know the info happy

Cheers, Aria.

I have just never liked it TBH , its all grainy and sticky ...obviously as a kid i didnt really think about where it came from but i didnt like it.

but yeah i dont think its something that humans should eat...doesnt seem natural. like i dont like how people ''keep'' bees in those little containers and smoke em out, steal their honey, poor little buggers dont know what hit m. I am sure someone else here can give you a good reason why they dont eat it but for me .... yeah. BLUGH. even my mum doesnt like it. '' bee spit'' she calls it wink

I actually don't like honey-and Aaron posted something about honey being pretty toxic:

Many of the bees die in the extraction process. It's stealing. Like milk honey is baby food that we take. The babies are then given a man made substitute which I would hardly consider fair. It's completely unethical even if the bees didn't die. But as they do it's absolutely abhorrent.

Aside from the cruelty fact. We need to nurture and support the bees. Not kill them. They are dying out and once they're gone we as humans only have a few short years to live. They are absolutely crucial to our own survival.
