Many people like myself have become vegetarians because of the cruelty that is so prevalent in the meat industry. I personally feel most people would thrive on a vegetarian diet.
I realize this may be difficult for those die hard carnivores that love the taste of meat. There really are some great meat alternatives. Scientist are currently working on a soy based chicken that mimics the taste and texture of real chicken.
This is something that I am sure would appeal to many folks just not me. I once had to remove myself from whole foods because someone had requested vegan chopped liver. Mentally I know it's liver and meat free, yet the gross factor was just to high for me to handle. I honestly can't fathom why anyone would want simulated liver.
I am sure I'm the anomaly. Maybe I was never much of a meat eater but what drove me to become a vegetarian is the horrific conditions and cruelty that takes place in so many slaughter houses. I can also honestly say that I benefited physically by omitting meat from my diet.
I wish more people would consider going vegetarian, it's far more doable than you think and the benefits far outweigh the negatives.
