Why Become a Vegitarian

January 26, 2007 10:06am CST
So why do people become vegitarians. Is it purely based on the fact that they think it's cruel or morally wrong. Is it to do with their health, because i am pretty sure there are minerals they can only get from meat. I have never understood why people become vegitarian or even vegan.

Hi ya, I became a vegetarian about 20 years ago because I thought it was morally wrong, and was also on my high horse about animal testing and so on. I still think animal testing is cruel if they are testing cosmetics and trivial stuff, but I'm not against it if they are testing new medicines that can save lives.

This is only a pure prescription of healthy. Doctors are saying that if you eat only vegetables, your body will be in shape and you don't have to make extra sports for losing weight. But i think that the problem you told us is a mentality ... you can't change it ... you can prevent it ... EAT MEAT PEOPLE ... it don't kill =))))) ... good joke: a vegetarian never eneter in Mc"Donalds because he will be a MEATarian

I am a vegan. The reason for this is because I don't like to see other living things suffer. I don't class myself as so important that I can justify hurting them for my own gain. I can survive perfectly well without eating animals or animal products so I don't any need to eat them.
