Why To Be.First this post is only for those who wish to go vegetarian and needs a little push, and those who are already vegetarian and , who would appreciate a little appreciation. If you enjoy meat, please don’t get angry about this; for I agree life is short enjoy it. ( I had nothing to do, so I thought I I will scribble, what comes in mind)
God has designed all animals in such a way that we identify our food with our senses, dominantly by sight. What we feel like eating seeing it, is our natural food. So fruits are our natural foods which god has cooked for us. Do we feel like eating it, when we see a live chicken, no. The length of the alimentary canal of humans is around 10 m when compared to carnivores, which is only 5 m. The acid in our stomach is less than 2%, while in carnivores it is about 6%. We have teeth designed to chew , while they have long and sharp canine and claws designed to kill and tear meat. Humans have the most developed eccrine sweat glands, while carnivores don’t even have them. So basically it is not our natural food.
Even if you consider dietary benefits, we eat only flesh, while carnivores eat their prey in full, drink blood, and consume bone marrow . Also we take our meat usually with oil , spices and condiments and other category of foods. Pepsin and hcl does the digestion of protein and it take place only in an acidic environment. Meat, which is not our natural source of protein, ( meat goes best with vegetables if you are a non veg and still reading ) when taken with other foods like bread makes the process of digestion difficult ( as digestion of carbohydrates is difficult in an acidic environment). Also the presence of oil makes the digestion of meat a difficult task, that is why we get extra thirsty ( pepsin can’t convert the meat to peptone, if it is oily and to remove the la
Regular consumption of meat can affect the body’s internal ph level, as it requires an acidic environment to digest. More acidic means more oxidation which is the root cause of all diseases. Also,, the body tries to keep its balance by first secreting more mucus, then by drawing alkaline, like calcium from our teeth and then bones ( we call that osteoporosis) . Also the higher we go up food chain, the concentration of harmful substances increases (body tries to contain them as tumors).
Animals feel pain and fear just like we all do. A study showed if you are a vegetarian you need 30 cents of land to live, if you want to take milk too you need 60 cents , and if you are a non vegetarian you need more than 600 cents to live. A large part of our cultivated land is used for feeding of slaughter animals and slaughter industry affects water balance and is one of the prime reasons for pollution . Why take the indirect route when you have the direct route. If more than 50% of the people turn vegetarian, there would be no more starvation in this world.
( If you are a non veg and still read this, i am sorry if i hurt any of your feelings :( )
