Hello folks, I think it’s been more than 3 months we haven’t interacted . I do remember the quarrel we had on upbringing concoctions last time .But now I’d better break the ice and stop hanging back on the issue that PETA briefed us about in a last week .
So coming back to my title , In Maharashtra , one of the states in India , government has marked a ban on beef .One of the most important decisions that should have taken a much before .
Well , its never too late !
But now the problem is that , many people in state are not happy with it. They’re against the decision.What to do now ?
We can’t generalize them as wrong since still Goat , Chicken , Fish etc are allowed .
And it’d be quite unfair if government put ban on it also.
So to stop all these disputes , what we can do is to convince people to be vegetarian and avoid non-veg as it is harmful , Cruel , brutal and violence pact .
Here’s my first attempt towards the same. Since there’s never been a better time to go vegetarian, I thought I’d let you the Top 10 Reasons Not to Eat Meat. They speak for themselves, so without further ado, here they are. I expect your concern :
1. Help the Poor
While there is ample reason for indignation at the 100 million tons of grain used for biofuels, more than seven times as much grain (760 million tons) is fed to farmed animals so that people can eat meat.
2. Stop Cruelty to Animals
On today’s factory farms, animals are crammed by the thousands into filthy windowless sheds, wire cages, gestation crates and other confinement systems. These animals will never raise families, root in the soil, build nests or do anything that is natural and important to them.
3. Save the Environment
A recent United Nations report entitled Livestock’s Long Shadow concludes that eating meat is “one of the top two or three most significant contributors to the most serious environmental problems, at every scale from local to global”. The report finds that eating meat causes almost 40 per cent more greenhouse-gas emissions than all the cars, trucks, ships and planes in the world combined.
4. Avoid Bird Flu
The World Health Organisation says that if the avian flu virus mutates, it could be caught simply by eating undercooked chicken flesh or eggs, eating food prepared on the same cutting board as infected meat or eggs, or even touching eggshells contaminated with the virus.
5. Prolong Your Life
Vegetarians live six to 10 years longer on average than meat-eaters do. Healthy vegetarian diets support a lifetime of good health and provide protection against numerous diseases and the three biggest killers – heart disease, cancer and strokes.
6. Avoid the World’s Number One Killer
The risk of developing heart disease among meat-eaters is 50 per cent higher than it is among vegetarians. Drs Dean Ornish and Caldwell Esselstyn have used a vegan diet to prevent and reverse heart disease. Dr Esselstyn’s book documents their 100 per cent success with unclogging people’s arteries and reversing heart disease.
7. Reduce Your Risk of Cancer
According to the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, “Vegetarians are about 40 percent less likely to get cancer than non-vegetarians, regardless of other risks such as smoking, body size, and socioeconomic status”.
8. Realize the difference between Carnivores and Herbivores :
Carnivores are the creatures who live on meat while Herbivores are the one who live on vegetarian food . We’re herbivore , Cows , Bulls , Elephants , rats , rabbits etc are herbivore . Their teeth are square shaped on the other hand all carnivores (who eat meat) have their teeth down triangular shaped . This is not a mere coincidence . This is the proof .
9. Create Global Peace
Leo Tolstoy claimed that “vegetarianism is the taproot of humanitarianism”. His point? If we want to sow the seeds of peace, we need to eat a peaceful diet. Eating meat supports killing animals just to satisfy humans’ acquired taste for flesh.
10. Discover the Joy of Veggies
Vegetarians report that when they adopt a vegetarian diet, their range of foods explodes from a limited selection of centre-of-the-plate meat items to a wide range of grains, legumes, fruits and vegetables that they didn’t even know existed.
And here’s what world renowned personalities have to say about being vegetarian :
* PAUL McCARTENY
“If anyone wants to save the planet, all they have to do is just stop eating meat. That’s the single most important thing you could do. It’s staggering when you think about it. Vegetarianism takes care of so many things in one shot: ecology, famine, cruelty”.
* Albert Einstein : “If yourown bodies are made up of fleshes of dead animals , how can you even expect any ideal condition on earth ”
* Mahatma Gandhi : ” We all are God’s creations , and we should therefore help every living being , including all creatures ”
Here are some of the well known vegetarians :
Mahatma Gandhi , Albert Einstein , Paul Deminis ,Thomas Edison , Rabindranath Tagore , etc
And here’s my last but not the least point :
“There’s a myth that if you don’t eat meat , you’ll go week…
Bitch please … The strongest animal on this world , ELEPHANT is a vegetarian one ”
Now you can decide for yourselves . I know you’r that much smart .
Thank you !
