Vegetarianism has become the most popular diet among the young
generations facing the new millennium. This discipline eliminates the intake of meat
and in some cases also the consumption of dairy products and eggs. Are there
enough reasons to make you change your eating habits? My purpose is to prove
that vegetarianism is the diet that offers more benefits to our health, spirit,
Nowadays, health is the number one individual and governmental concern.
Health is a fragile factor, and its behavior relays mostly on the nutritional
quality of the food we ingest. A balanced non-vegetarian diet allows the
consumption of all four main food groups including meat and other animal
by-products that are important protein and fat sources. Most of us consume more
proteins and fats than we need. An excess of proteins can cause kidney failure
and/or osteoporosis, and a high-fat diet can eventually lead to heart disease,
cancer, obesity, and diabetes. On the other hand, vegetarians get protein from
grains, beans, vegetables, and low-fat food. This is how they reduce the risk of
most diseases caused by fats. It is a myth to believe that vegetarians don't get
enough proteins or that their diet is not balanced because they don't eat meat.
The key is variety and accurate combinations of energy and protein sources.
If I were asked to describe a vegetarian, I would immediately mention they
are very disciplined people. It has been proved that there exists a remarkable
correlation between the people who succeed and people who follow a disciplined
lifestyle. People who are faithful to the disciplines they have acquired show
integrity, a remarkable behavior, and they are usually in a good mood.
Vegetarians, always concerned about quality and discipline, develop a greater
social responsibility that motivates them to improve their environment.
Moreover, environmental issues have been capturing public attention because
of their relevancy and increasing deterioration of our quality of life. If you
are concerned about the environment, consider that massive meat production can
have a negative impact on tropical rain forests, soil stability, and air and
water quality. Large extensions of forests have been cut and changed into
grasslands that provide cattle with food. To conserve grasslands, fertilizers
and other chemical substances are used; consequently, soil and water resources
are polluted. Even though there are methods that avoid this kind of
deterioration, producers prefer to ignore them so they can keep satisfying the
increasing meat demand without affecting their production rates.
Vegetarians' life spans are increased and through this discipline they learn
to live quality in all the possible aspects. Besides, their beliefs are
congruent with their lifestyle and they take responsibility and action for
problems within their own bodies and in their surroundings. Take a look at
yourself. Is your health at risk? Have you been able to reach your goals? Are
you a factor of change and improvement within your society? You must at least
try becoming a vegetarian now that you know it is a tempting challenge and an
exciting experiment that has advantages and no risks. Do it for your body, for
your lifestyle, or for your environment, but do it. Stop letting others have all
the credit, the fun, and the quality.
