I’m considering the possibility of going vegan or at least vegetarian for moral reasons. I am unclear on the decision as of yet but would like to know if there are any good information sources I could use that are unbiased and aren’t preachy. I want to outweigh benefits and disadvantages.
I am also iron deficient so want to know if this will be a massive issue for the decision.
Any advice?
Also no need to troll about eating steaks cause at the minute I am also a meat eater and yes, it is yummy.

The NHS website has info on vegetarian and vegan diets and will be considering them from the health point of view rather than any preachy/ethical angle.

With an iron deficiency, you should speak with your GP before making a big lifestyle change like this.

Nutritionally speaking, it would be easier to correct the iron deficiency before embarking on a restrictive diet such as veganism.

What you're asking is really a contradiction in terms - you want unbiased sources to help you make a moralistic decision about vegetarianism/veganism. Moral opinions sort of are biased, inherently. The NHS/BDA have good, scientifically accurate and unbiased factual information about these dietary choices, but they don't go into the moral aspects of it really: they stick to the science and practicalities surrounding it.

Sorry I meant that I wanted to outweigh the pros and cons across the board. Environmental, moral, economic, my own health etc
I don’t want some source that preaches eating meat is evil and is trying to force that decision onto people. I do believe it is a choice that people are entitled to and not a case of trying to actively discourage meat eating.
