"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated." - Mahatma Ghandi
For some people, vegetarianism is only about stop eating meat. Other people are not able to understand it and think of vegetarians as "strange" and "different". And some others believe it is unhealthy and poor in nutrition matters.
But, there is no such thing as ignorance, only missing information.
The reasons for becoming a vegetarian may be based on ethical, religious, health, environmental, economic concerns or any combination of these. Although, vegetarian food has a variety of options as healthy and delicious as any other diet, the first step for becoming vegetarian however, is fundamentally based in a set of ethical values and beliefs.
According to United States Department of Agriculture, in the United States alone, we consume approximately 8 billion animals a year for food: 38 million cows and calves, 95 million hogs, 5 million sheep and goats, 278 million turkeys, 20 million ducks, and over 7 billion chickens.
Vegetarianism involves far more than a dietary choice, it shows people a way of life and represents a change in human consciousness that takes humans to be part of nature, not apart from nature.
The purpose of this website is to introduce people into the roots of vegetarianism, from the past to the present so that those who are able understand the implications and repercussions of vegetarianism, can help build a better future, in which human selfishness towards animals is no longer a destructive reality, but a past remembrance.
