Benefits of Going Vegetarian

Different studies show that there are several health benefits to cutting meat out of your diet. Meat has become more processed over time and whether or not you are an animal lover, the conditions in which animals bred for slaughter are kept is disgraceful. Becoming a vegetarian may have more health benefits than you expect. Here is a list of reasons, dietary and moral, to skip out on meat.

Animal Cruelty
Perhaps one of the most prominent reasons why people choose to be vegetarian is the animals. Dozens of documentaries have been produced focusing on animal cruelty in the meat and dairy industry that cause people to drop meat. Meat the Truth and Food Inc. are just two of the many films made to show what really goes on in the meat industry.

Quality of Food
Science proves that steroids and other antibiotics are pumped into animals to make them grow bigger and faster – the bigger the animals, the more meat they can provide. Rushing this process by feeding animals harmful chemicals that eventually go into our systems is harmful to both humans and the animals.

Mood
Studies show that arachidonic acid, found in animal meat, is linked to mood disturbances. Additionally, studies have been carried out by Croatia’s Institute for Medical Research and Occupational Health that support the notion that vegetarians have lower levels of neuroticism.

Lower risks of stroke and obesity
There are always exceptions but, in general, vegetarians and vegans tend to be much more careful about their food choices and far less likely to binge eat or choose foods based on emotions – two habits that significantly contribute to obesity. According to the University Hospital Ghent Department of Paediatrics in Belgium, following a vegetarian diet is a good way to reduce your chance of having a stroke or being obese.

It can satisfy all of your nutritional requirements 
Contrary to popular belief, vegetarians and vegans are not nutritionally deficient or always hungry. The official position of The American Dietetic Association is that a comprehensive and well-designed vegetarian, or vegan, diet can be nutritionally sound and appropriate for all ages and stages of life, including infants, the elderly and even athletes.

Whatever the reasons, or concerns, it may be more beneficial to consider the vegetarian lifestyle.
