Vegetarianism: Government Support and The People

Health Reasons for Vegetarianism
This world of ours is growing smaller while the human eco footprint is growing larger. Nowadays eating meat is becoming a highly inefficient way to fuel the human body.

Governments across the world support the people’s choice in vegetarianism because it is the healthier choice for nutrition.  Vegetarians enjoy a diet of healthy food that includes balanced nutrition and none of the foods that are unhealthy like processed and packaged foods containing excess salt, sugar, and fat.  Studies have shown direct health problems associated with eating meat, so much that insurance companies are beginning to offer discounts for vegetarians.

Britain, China, and the World Health Organization (WHO) have all done extensive research studies with large populations.

My mistake was my choice of mentor – let’s call him Jim. Jim had crashed his motorcycle  and, as a result no longer drove one. But as friends go, he was the only one who could teach me to ride. Not surprisingly, he explained in vague generalities, didn’t go over the importance of posture, or that the clutch is worked with the feet, not the hands. I rode that bike straight into his mailbox. Crash and burn.
