Do I Need A Reason For Vegetarianism

Jul 24, 2008
There are many who make a conscious decision to eliminate animal products from their lives. They follow a vegetarian diet that is nutritious, tasty and helps them to maintain their health and vigor. If this type of lifestyle is foreign to you, you may wonder why people choose this lifestyle.

People who choose to be vegetarian usually cite the numerous health benefits of the diet as the reason for their choice. Commercially-raised livestock are pumped full of hormones and drugs, and outbreaks of e-coli contamination and mad cow disease happen all the time. You can avoid all of these problems just by making a simple choice not to eat meat products.

The vegetarian diet is completely healthy and if planned right it can offer all of the benefits of a diet that contains meat and animal products. Most people eat meat simply because they have always done so. They have never considered that the meat in their diet can be easily replaced with several tasty options.

Still other vegetarian people say that they eat the way they do because they object to the inhumane treatment of the animals. The meat production process in this country is truly barbaric, especially when you consider how advanced our culture is in other ways. The production of meat is a horrific process, one that would make even the most enthusiastic meat-eater think twice about what he is eating. The thing is, many people just don't know what goes into the process of getting the meat they eat each day.

Any true humanitarian or animal-lover cannot condone the awful treatment that animals are given just to provide us with food to eat. Vegetarians are people who choose to eat healthily and without being a part of the slaughtering of millions of animals for the production of meat each year.

Many people believe further that the human animal is not meant to be carnivorous. They feel that if the design of our teeth and internal digestive system were looked at closely we would discover that we are designed to be herbivores only.

Another reasons cited for vegetarianism is environmental concerns. There is so much hype and concern over global warming these days, yet most people are completely ignorant of how cattle farms are negatively impacting the situation. Millions of cattle are bred specifically for producing meat. All the carbon in Earth's stratosphere is largely due to cows, for they are huge producers of carbon. If you are really serious about wanting to do your part to safeguard the future of the Earth's environment, then choosing to go vegetarian is the most important lifestyle change you can make.
