I’m 32 years old and I live in Israel. Ever since I heard your breathtaking lecture I am vegan. Thanks to you my eyes are open, and I’ve decided to help change the world! You’ve touched a lot of people here in Israel. People can not stop talking about your amazing actions! Thank you for turning this world into a much better place! Many people here in Israel are standing behind you and sending you support!

I saw your lecture and will become a vegetarian. I do not understand how people have no feelings about animals. How long will the animals continue to suffer and how long will we continue to kill animals?

I saw your youtube video and had consumed meat and milk products. when people asked me if i cared about cruelty to the animals, I would say “I am a big guy and this is what nature intended so with sorrow I say I have no choice.” I heard a lot of activists over the years but your lecture changed my opinion and got me thinking. 2. It’s been two weeks and I’ve stopped eating meat, milk, etc. Since I hate cooked vegetables, I am on a raw vegan diet. The arguments against veganism, ones that I’ve used too, are weak and uneducated. This is a huge change for me and I want to thank you for that.

I am from Israel. I saw your lecture and was very motivated. Needless to say, me and my kids are now vegan.

I’m 32 years old from Israel. Since I watched your lecture 4 months ego, I became a vegan and I’m trying to tell everybody that this is what we need to do. I convinced 4 people to become vegan, but this is not enough. I can’t stop thinking about those poor animals and I really wish to do more!

Greetings from Israel. Around 1.5 months ago my boyfriend and I watched your lecture and decided to go vegan. And even though it has not been that long I can say that it was one of the best decision of my life. Your lecture opened our eyes. It is quite easy being vegan. It is only society that makes it hard and the more I think about it the harder it gets for me to understand how people can not see “it”.
