Vegans and Vegetarians

People convert to vegetarian or vegan diets for many reasons. Some religions dictate avoidance of specific meat. Ancient philosophies, such as yoga, apply the principle of ahimsa, or non-violence, which means avoiding harming any living creature, and since eating meat means that animals have to be killed, the vegetarian or vegan lifestyle is favored.

Some people chose not to eat meat for the same reason – as a protest towards inhuman conditions in which livestock is being held and treated. Some prefer a meatless diet for health reasons, and others purely for the environment. Each of these people is right in their choice as long as it doesn’t compromise their health.
