Vegetarian Awareness Month

October is vegetarian awareness month and I will do my "duty" and spread the word about the benefits you gain from being a vegetarian......
The following is taken from worldvegetarianday.navs-online.org

Vegetarian Diets
Reduce the risk of major killers such as heart disease, stroke and cancer while cutting exposure to foodborne pathogens
Provide a viable answer to feeding the world’s hungry through more efficient use of grains and other crops
Save animals from suffering in factory-farm conditions and from the pain and terror of slaughter
Conserve vital but limited freshwater, fertile topsoil and other precious resources
Preserve irreplaceable ecosystems such as rainforests and other wildlife habitats
Decrease greenhouse gases that are accelerating global warming
Mitigate the ever-expanding environmental pollution of animal agriculture

What are you meat eaters waiting for? Start reducing your meat intake.
The misconceptions that you need to eat meat every day to get a balanced diet, stay healthy and feel like you had a meal that satisfied your hunger are just that.....not true.
