Can you get along without eating meat? Well, here are 7 excellent reasons for not eating meat.
has many benefits not only to your health, but the
economy and environment.
1. Vegetarians require only half as much LAND to produce
food. Meat production requires twice as much land to
produce the same amount of useable protein.
2. Ten times
more cereals and 100 times more vegetables can be
grown in the SAME TIME it takes to produce edible meat.
3. Meat is ADDICTIVE. Staying away from meat in your
diet is very helpful,
basically because meat is a toxic stimulant which
becomes putrefied in your system. Like alcohol, tobacco,
or coffee, meat will give you a lift or a "high." And
like all stimulants, you always want more. You can
Cereals, fruits, and vegetables slowly mold and ferment,
but meat (along with fish and eggs), become putrefied
4. Meat is nothing but SECOND HAND PROTEIN with fat, which
contains uric acids. Too much fat built up in the
system can produce hardening of the arteries,
atherosclerosis and other diseases of the blood.
5. HEALTH REASONS Cancer is practically unknown in vegetarian groups.
Too much uric acid over burdens the liver and kidneys,
leaving the body susceptible to diseases like; arthritis,
rheumatism, epilepsy, headaches, or nervous conditions.
Since our systems really weren't meant for meat, the
price we pay for this dietary indulgence includes
constipation-and even early death.
This is because our
digestive systems were not meant to handle toxic meat.
Vegetarians digest their food by fermentation, which
decompose food by enzymatic action with the formation
of gas. We chew our food by moving our jaws from side
to side. Carnivores can't do this. Carnivores have
short bowels. They expel food quickly because meat is
toxic. On a vegetarian diet, the stools are longer,
well-formed, soft and don't have an unpleasant odor.
By switching your diet to vegetables and cereals, you
can prove how good the changes can make you feel and
6. RELIGION Of course, another reason for becoming a vegetarian
is that since we don't have the power to restore life,
we have no right to take it.
7. And meat it more expensive.
As with any diet change, it is important to have a
physical check up and supplement your diet with
appropriate vitamins to be sure you get the protein
you need - without getting the toxicity of meat.
