I am a cancer vegan. A reluctant vegan. An imperfect vegan prone to meat-lapses. Vegan because there is some research that suggest being vegan lowers the chance for cancer to return. I’m not a political vegan or a moral vegan. I’m relieved that veganism is environmentally friendly, but I wasn’t a vegan before I got cancer. Strangely, I don’t even think it’s important that I survive cancer. I believe it will come back and kill me, nevertheless, I’m a kind of vegan, a cancer vegan.
