If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be a vegetarian. Paul McCartney. Do you want to have a healthier, more energetic life and live longer?

~ George Bernard Shaw. There are many benefit of Vegetarianism like a better and healthier disease free life and a young look without the sin of having killed an animal. It is a proven fact that the arrangement of our teeth is more herbivorous that carnivorous. Evidence of us being herbivorous is also found in the length of our intestines. Carnivores have short intestinal tracts and colons that allow meat to pass through it relatively quickly, before it has a chance to rot and cause illness. Humans, on the other hand, have intestinal tracts that are much longer than carnivores of comparable size. Like other herbivores, longer intestines allow the body more time to break down fiber and absorb the nutrients from a plant-based diet. The long human intestinal tract actually makes it dangerous for people to eat meat. The bacteria in meat have extra time to multiply during the long trip through the digestive system, and meat actually begins to rot while it makes its way through the intestines. Research has even found out that our saliva has carbohydrate-digesting enzymes like herbivores. Our stomach also has a PH of 4 to 5 like herbivores whereas carnivores have one or maximum of 1.5.You put a baby in a crib with an apple and a rabbit. If it eats the rabbit and plays with the apple, I'll buy you a new car. ~Harvey Diamond. So why should anyone be non-vegetarian when you can get the same nutrient and better health, less chance of diseases and a younger look in vegetarianism. Many of us are animal lovers. We also join clubs like paws etc. Most of us also have pets and yet we eat animals. So switch to vegetarianism and enjoy a healthier, longer, and fruitful and sin free life.
