Reasons You Should Be A Vegetarian
- Kindness: animals like cows, chickens, turkeys, crabs, etc. are all fellow living creatures. Respect their life! (That's why Susan B. Anthony was a vegetarian.)
Vegetarians suffer 30% less cases of heart disease! That is because our diet lowers saturated fat and cholesterol, and encourages eating more fruits, vegetables and grain. Vegetarians suffer 40% less cases of cancer! That is simply by eating more beta-carotene, Vitamin C, fiber, grains and even just cabbage! (Clara Barton, the founder of the American Red Cross was a vegetarian.) By not eating animal fat you greatly reduce your total fat intake! (If you care: Christie Brinkley is a known vegetarian.) It is cheaper than animal meat! Eating animal meat is not smart, but it could also contribute to senility/dementia! News: "A natural compound found in plants ranging from rice to soybeans can stop cancer from growing and shrink tumors, researchers at the University of Maryland School of Medicine said. The compound, known as inositol hexaphosphate (IP6), has worked against colon, liver, breast and other types of tumors in mice, said Dr. Abulkalam Shamsuddin, pathology professor. Cancer is marked by out-of-control cell growth, but Shamsuddin said IP6 normalizes this and also activates the p53 gene, which is known to suppress cancer." Quoted from The Orlando Sentinel It takes 3,000 cows to supply the NFL with enough leather for a year's supply of footballs. !
