I’m actually glad that I was a vegan when less was known and it was easier to fail. If I’d figured out how to be a healthy vegan indefinitely, I might never have gotten out. That’s why I worry about the vegans of the future. If science ever discovers the most nutritionally optimal animal-product-free diet possible, that’s one less deus ex machina to set vegans free.
