Eat Thy Neighbour

Following on from my discussion yesterday about alcoholics accepting consecrated wine a friend raised the point "what about vegetarians?" If a Roman Catholic vegetarian accepts the host or wine which according to the liturgy are the flesh and blood of Christ are they breaking their commitment not to eat the flesh or drink the blood of living things?
