2. Vegetarianism
Features an overview of the health issues related to children and vegetarianism.

Vegetarian diets have become more prevalent and popular, and many parents may wonder if kids can safely follow a vegetarian diet and still get all the nutrients necessary for growing up healthy and strong. Most dietary and medical experts agree that a properly structured vegetarian diet is healthy. To ensure adequate nutrient intake, special care must be taken when feeding children a vegetarian diet, especially if the diet does not include dairy and egg products. Before your child or your family switches to a vegetarian diet, it's important to note that all vegetarian diets are not alike. Some of the major vegetarian categories include:
  • Ovo vegetarian - eats eggs; no meat
  • Lacto-ovo vegetarian - eats dairy and egg products; no meat
  • Lacto vegetarian - eats dairy products; no eggs or meat
  • Vegan - eats only food from plant sources
  • Other categories include: Pesco vegetarians - eats fish but no other meat; and Pollo vegetarians - eats poultry but no other meat
The Choice of Vegetarianism
There are many reasons why children or families may follow a vegetarian diet. Younger vegetarians are usually part of a family that eats vegetarian meals for health or religious reasons (for example, Seventh Day Adventists follow a vegetarian diet). In non-vegetarian families, older children may decide to become vegetarians because of concern for animals, the environment, or their own health. Heidi Kecskemethy, RD, CSP, a board-certified pediatric nutritionist, tells parents not to be alarmed if their children choose vegetarianism. Kecskemethy says that the best way to handle a child's vegetarianism is to "discuss what it means to the child and how they want to implement it." She has met with parents who shudder when their children switch to vegetarian meals. "Make sure the kids make good food choices. If they are going to just eat Cheese Nips, Pop Tarts, and soda, then you have a problem."

  • What is a Vegetarian? Making the Change to a Vegetarian Diet Vegetarian Nutrition
    What is a Vegetarian?
    Vegetarians do not eat meat, fish, and poultry. Vegans are vegetarians who abstain from eating or using all animal products, including milk, cheese, other dairy items, eggs, wool, silk, and leather. Among the many reasons for being a vegetarian are health, ecological, and religious concerns, dislike of meat, compassion for animals, belief in non-violence, and economics. The American Dietetic Association has affirmed that a vegetarian diet can meet all known nutrient needs. The key to a healthy vegetarian diet, as with any other diet, is to eat a wide variety of foods, including fruits, vegetables, plenty of leafy greens, whole grain products, nuts, seeds, and legumes. Limit your intake of sweets and fatty foods.
    Making the Change to a Vegetarian Diet
    Many people become vegetarian instantly. They totally give up meat, fish and poultry overnight. Others make the change gradually. Do what works best for you.

8. An Argument For Vegetarianism
A slightly unusual utilitarian argument for vegetarianism.
An argument for vegetarianism
(Incomplete first draft)
Introduction and Purpose
This paper attempts an argument for vegetarianism. Its goal is to maximise utility, by decreasing the number of practicing meat eaters. It is an argument that assumes the reader holds a utilitarian position; if the reader does not, I have no hope of convincing him - or, at least, not solely with this paper. Let that reader look elsewhere. [ Firstly I will say what I believe ought be sufficient for this paper to be successful. I do not, I make quite clear, have to prove that vegetarianism results in maximal utility, all consequences considered. I am not a fortune-teller - I cannot predict what all the consequences of any far-reaching action will be. Fortunately, I do not need to be: utilitarians being, I hope, reasonable people, I have only to show that, for the reader, vegetarianism will likely result in a level of utility higher than the alternative. [ I will also make clear that this paper is not meant as the "last word" on the issue of vegetarianism - by all means, let this issue be discussed. If, at any point, my case seems to lack evidence, I hope the fair-minded reader will inquire as to how much evidence is easily available for alternative conclusions, and wonder if indeed my argument is insufficient against it. And if there exist substantial arguments against my position, which I have not raised here, let them be brought them out into the light of critical examination.
On Content and Structure
This paper parts company with the normal vegetarian promotional literature from the first, by starting with oft-neglected animals - the fishes. Fishing is the most common method of taking animals from the wild for food (in western society), most other animals we eat being domesticated and reared for that purpose. I will say that the case against commercial fishing is, on utilitarian terms, stronger than the case against (e.g.) beef production. It is therefore possible that the reader will be convinced that to continue eating fish is wrong, but that to continue eating beef is not.

  • Why are they vegetarian?
    Laws Ordaining Food
    Nature's law is that one living being exists by eating another. The scriptures give regulations for human life and set aside certain foods for human beings. That quota is divided into six categories, namely vegetables, fruits, milk products, grains, sugar and nuts. With these six ingredients we can maintain our health very well, far better than meat eaters maintain their health. Vegetarians are more healthy than meat eaters, and their endurance is greater, although they may not have brute strength. Just consider that the elephant is a powerful animal, yet he never eats even a scrap of meat. Principle of Non-violence
    The Bible says, "Thou shalt not kill," but everywhere people are slaughtering animals and eating them. All religious scriptures promote non-violence as the first principle of religious life. Whatever we see is created by God. No one has the right to kill anything or anyone, because no one can create anything. We cannot create an animal. We cannot create even a mosquito, so we should not kill even a mosquito. Spiritual life means non-violence. Animals should be protected. This is confirmed in the Bible:
    Whatever you do unto the least of my brothers, you do it unto me. (

11. The VSSJ - World Hunger
Very short piece showing how eating less meat helps to end starvation.
The Vegetarian Society of South Jersey
If you want to put the welfare of humanity first, you can hardly do better than become vegan. Author of Animal Liberation , Peter Singer, states that if Americans were to reduce their meat consumption by only 10 % for one year, it would free at least 12 million tons of grain for human consumption. That is enough to feed 60 million people. If Americans stopped eating grain-fed beef altogether, the whole population of India could be fed.
Instead we feed grain, corn, and soybeans to livestock. It takes up to 16 pounds of grain and soybeans to produce 1 pound of beef. Ninety to 100% of the protein, carbohydrate, and dietary fiber of grains are lost through the cycling of grain through livestock.
Help world hunger by continually learning about and eating plant foods.

13. Vegetarianism
Contains reasons for staying vegeterian from spirirual, karmic and health perspective.Category Society Lifestyle Choices Religious Viewpoints Hindu......Why vegetarianism? vegetarianism, known in Sanskrit as Shakahara, was for thousandsof years a principle of health and environmental ethics throughout India.
Why Vegetarianism? Vegetarianism, known in Sanskrit as Shakahara, was for thousands of years a principle of health and environmental ethics throughout India. Though Muslim and Christian colonization radically undermined and eroded this ideal, it remains to this day a cardinal ethic of Hindu thought and practices. A subtle sense of guilt persists among Hindus who eat meat. Hinduism is the only religion which preaches vegetarianism, as a way to live with a minimum of hurt to other beings, for to consume meat, fish, fowl or eggs is to participate indirectly in acts of cruelty and violence against the animal kingdom. The meat-eater's desire for meat drives another to kill and provide that meat. The act of the butcher begins with the desire of the consumer. Meat eating contributes to a mentality of violence. India's greatest saints have confirmed that one cannot eat meat and live a peaceful, harmonious life. Man's appetite for meat inflicts devastating harm on the earth itself, stripping its precious forests to make way for pastures. How can one who eats meat practice true compassion by eating the flesh of an animal to fatten his own flesh?
A vegetarian diet does not include meat, fish or eggs. For good health, even certain vegetarian foods are minimized: frozen and canned foods, highly processed foods, such as white rice, white sugar and white flour; and "junk" foods and beverages-those with abundant chemical additives, such as artificial sweeteners, colorings, flavorings and preservatives.

Vegetarianism and Investing
Investing in animal-based companies may appear to be a good strategy, but in the long run it could represent a threat to personal finances, and an economy based on such companies may threaten the economy itself. Also, it eventually could lead to a world where few of us would want to live. By contrast, vegetarianism has great potential as an investment. First, let us consider four considerations that are not directly financial: 1. Vegetarianism is a great investment in ourselves, in our health, since animal-centered diets have been directly linked to heart disease, several forms of cancer, strokes, and other degenerative illnesses. No matter how successful one's financial investments, what good are they if one lacks the good health to enjoy them? 2. Vegetarianism is a great investment in a cleaner, more sustainable world, because modern intensive animal agriculture is a significant contributor to soil erosion and depletion, air and water pollution, widespread use of pesticides and other chemicals, the destruction of tropical rain forests and other habitats, and global warming. What is the value of a large house and other assets if one does not have a decent planet on which to enjoy them? 3. Vegetarianism is a great investment in a more peaceful, less violent world, because animal-centered diets, by wasting valuable resources, help to perpetuate the widespread hunger and poverty that eventually lead to instability and war. What is the value of extensive financial assets in a world plagued with war and violence?

18. Christian Vegetarianism
Provides scriptures about being vegetarian, explains old and new testament principals of being a vegetari Category Society Lifestyle Choices Veganism Religious Viewpoints......CHRISTIAN vegetarianism. The significant rise of vegetarianism in recent yearshas inevitably come to include a Christian minority within its ranks.
CHRISTIAN VEGETARIANISM "A BIBLICAL APPROACH TO LIFE" Go forth to every part of the world and proclaim the good news to the whole creation". (Mark 16:15 ) Traditional Christian abstinence from animal flesh is usually associated with its esoteric sects and the search for spiritual growth through physical discipline. The significant rise of vegetarianism in recent years has inevitably come to include a Christian minority within its ranks. Whilst the values themselves may appear to have altered, they stem once again from the very essence of the faith itself. The spiritual truth; Do unto others as you would have done unto you is by no means unique to Christianity. It can be found within the sacred scriptures of every major world religion. At the heart of Christianity, in particular, can be found the qualities of love, mercy, compassion, pity and peace. This will sound ironic in the light of just how badly the spirit of the religion has at times been embodied by its adherents. In itself, vegetarianism is but one small step towards approximating the peaceable kingdom. There exists no ' pure land ' theology, but a need for humility as well as vision. To a growing number of Christians, however, there exists no means of reconciling the institutionalised violence of the meat industry, and its inherent disrespect for life, with divine will. Far from being a substitute religion or a modern day heresy, vegetarianism is increasingly advocated on Biblical grounds. To many, it is not merely an objection to the conduct of the world, but a physical statement of faith.

Vegetarianism: A Means to a Higher End
By Adiraja Dasa This is a practical cookbook, designed to help you prepare authentic Indian meals in your own home and to acquaint you with the tradition behind India's great vegetarian cuisine. It explains not only the techniques of Vedic, or classical Indian vegetarian cooking, but also the Vedic art of eating, which nourishes both the soul and the body and mind. The word vegetarian, coined by the founders of the British Vegetarian Society in 1842, comes from the Latin word vegetus, meaning "whole, sound, fresh, or lively," as in homo vegetus -a mentally and physically vigorous person. The original meaning of the word implies a balanced philosophical and moral sense of life, a lot more than just a diet of vegetables and fruits. Most vegetarians are people who have understood that to contribute towards a more peaceful society we must first solve the problem of violence in our own hearts. So it's not surprising that thousands of people from all walks of life have, in their search for truth, become vegetarian. Vegetarianism is an essential step towards a better society, and people who take the time to consider its advantages, will be in the company of such thinkers as Pythagoras, Socrates, Plato, Clement of Alexandria, Plutarch, King Asoka, Leonardo da Vinci, Montaigne, Akbar, John Milton, Sir Isaac Newton, Emanuel Swedenbourg, Voltaire, Benjamin Franklin, Jean Jacques Rousear, Lamartine, Percy Bysshe Shelley, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, Leo Tolstoy, George Bernard Shaw, Rabindranath Tagore, Mahatma Gandhi, Albert Schweitzer, and Albert Einstein.
