Vegetarianism is good for everybody, whether young or old, healthy or sick. Reasons for supporting vegetarianism are inarguable since becoming a vegetarian is scientifically proven to improve one’s lifestyle in several different ways. First and most important to many, vegetarianism improves one’s health tremendously. Secondly, it can improve or display one’s spirituality and beliefs. Another reason for changing to a vegetarian lifestyle that most people don’t know is for the ecology and our surroundings. All of the above reasons and many more show that vegetarianism is a wonderful enhancement to anyone’s overall life.
Health should be a considerable priority in every individual’s life and vegetarians are proven to be healthier than non- vegetarians in various ways. Medical studies show that a human being’s body was not made to be carnivorous and because our digestive system was not made to digest meat, a vegetarian diet is much easier and healthier for our bodies. As known around the world, the most common cause of death is heart attack and the average man is at a 50% risk while a vegetarian man is at a 4% risk. Another fact most do not think about is that every one out of 3 chickens is infected with salmonella bacteria. Breast milk of a meat-eating mother versus a non meat eating mother is 35times higher for contamination of milk due to pesticides found in meat. Vegetarianism also prevents cancer by 50% and prevents heart disease, lowering blood pressure, gallstones, kidney stones, and osteoporosis and can even reverse diabetes. Maintaining a vegetarian diet will not only make you physically healthier, but will improve your psychiatric health also. In fact, many psychiatrics recommend a vegetarian diet to those with violent anger problem. As provided above, becoming a vegetarian would improve anyone’s health and give all nutrition needed including protein.
Many vegetarians do what they do for spiritual reasons and all have much supporting logic behind all the spirituality. Others claim they are spiritual people who are compassionate, but how can one who eats meat be so with the knowledge of the suffering animals whose pain are beyond calculation? If one has understanding from god, how can he nourish himself by the misery and death or other organisms made to live and be free? When a human kills an animal for food, he is neglecting his own hunger for justice.
Our environment is affected in many ways by livestock and so on. In fact, every quarter pound of hamburger meat one eats destroys 55 square feet of rain forest, which is already being demolished in the first place. This is because many cattle eaten have been fattened up and raised in former rainforest that was converted to grazing ground. Vegetarianism could even improve our world by preventing hunger for 1,300,000,000 humans could be fed by the grain and soybeans fed to livestock each year. Not only does meat eating help destroy our bodies, but the world around us.
When it all comes down to it, being a vegetarian is a wonderful, spiritual and helpful way of life and it can be to all. It can improve health, spirituality and even the ecology. There are many more reasons supporting vegetarianism and one can always find some that are most important to them. Some think of vegetarianism as a punishment or restriction, while true vegetarians and the ones who know most distinguish that it is a fantastic and quick way to refine and add energy, godliness and will power to anyone’s life.
