Vegetarian Versus “Meatetarian”
Being a vegetarian takes plenty of sacrifices but may reap great benefits. It is thought that a vegetarian’s diet lacked many essential nutrients only acquirable with eating meat. Comparing the pros and cons of meat free diets may change people’s minds about vegetarianism.
Pros of Vegetarianism:
- An omnivore’s diet is normally high in fat.
- Hamburgers are made from cows which are dead, disabled, diseased, and dying.
- In eating cow, we also maintain the chemicals and hormones that are supplied to them to promote growth and weight gain.
- Vegetarians have a cheaper diet than omnivores.
- Meat raises cholesterol levels and increases the risk of arthritis and gout.
- Vegetables contain protein.
- Soy products provide isoflavins, which limit bone loss, restrain tumor growth, and lower cholesterol (healthier than meat)
- A successful diet of a vegetarian lessens ones risk of various diseases including cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes and obesity.
- Vegetarians can live up to ten years longer than “meatetarians”.
- Green leafy vegetables are a terrific source of calcium.
Cons of Vegetarianism:
- Having a diet including meat gives you rich quality proteins and essential amino acids which can only be obtained by eating red meats.
- Red meat also contains iron in great amounts.
- Phosphorous is also more easily acquired through meat than through vegetables.
- Vitamin B12 can only be obtained through meats only. Although vitamin B12 can be found in seaweed and fermented soy products, it is thought that vitamin B12 does not have the same benefits when eaten in plant form. B12 is needed in forming red blood cells and helpful in keeping the nervous system healthy.
- Vitamin B2 may also be lacking in a vegans diet. This vitamin is essential in changing protein, fats and carbohydrates into energy.
- A vegetarians diet lacks Vitamin D as well.
From this you can conclude that being either a vegetarian and being an omnivore have different outcomes.
