Being A Vegetarian

Many non-vegetarians wonder what drives a vegetarian to give up meat and adopt an entirely different lifestyle. Why does a person what to become a vegetarian? 

There is no single answer to this question.

Non-vegetarians are being a vegetarian for a number of different reasons - some even for multiple reasons. Most vegetarians claim that they became a vegetarian for one of three reasons.

This is why a person will start being a vegetarian.

The first reason, which most vegetarians claim, is that they have ethical problems with eating meat.

Most disagree with how chickens are debeaked, and are forced to live in small cages, then they are slaughtered when they do not produce eggs fast enough.

Most vegetarians also disagree with the crowded and stressful environments animals are forced into; and the hormone-laden feed used to make them grow faster and produce more.

People who become vegetarians for this purpose often draw ethical boundaries in different spots, depending on their personal beliefs. For instance, some staunch vegans won't consume yeast, wear wool, or even eat certain vegetables, such as carrots, that require killing the plant to harvest.

Some recent studies have suggested that vegetarians also process certain types of foods with less efficiency because they consume different amounts and varieties of absorption inhibitors and enhancers.

Recent studies also suggest, however, that a vegetarian or vegan diet, when done right, is not only as healthful as a non-vegetarian diet, but it is also much more heart-healthy - and usually contains higher amounts of antioxidants.

Question: Does it really matter if I become a vegetarian?
