Non-violence is very important. I believe very strongly in non-violence. How can we ever claim to be non-violent in a society If we mercilessly slaughter more than 25 billion animals and a much bigger amount of aquatics for food yearly? While they may not have the same level of intelligence as us, that is what puts the onus on us to care for all of God's creatures. After all are they not almost the same as us in most ways? For this reason I eat no meat, fish or eggs. Add to this the severe health risks that eating meat promotes. For instance, research and comparative studies over the past twenty-five years show that a meat-based diet is the number one cause of heart disease and cancer. When you see for yourself how more sumptuous and delicious vegetarian food is and how more socially economic and healthier a vegetarian lifestyle is, you're unlikely to need further convincing.
