                 Vegetarianism                 Franšais  
 

Testimony

   I became a vegetarian forty years ago when I realized that the consumption of meat involved animal suffering and that I could very well do without. I wanted to avoid that a person or an animal suffers because of me .

   In retrospect, this was one of the best decisions of my life. I am very happy and I am very healthy. Being vegetarian increases our chances of mental, p
hysical,  emotional and spiritual
health.

Jean Yves
Our companions

    The animals are conscious beings like us. They have thoughts, instincts, emotions, sensations and projects . Many are willing to risk their lives for their young. They can suffer or be happy.  Some are very intelligent. Some manufacture tools.
As us, an animal is a spirit in a body.  When we look at the eyes of a dog 
we can see joy or sadness, fear or love. They are our companions on this earth.

    Meat production is accompanied by much suffering. Every day we kill billions of animals unnecessarily .
   Fish and ' Seafood ' are also animals ... :-) It remains only 10% of fish in the oceans.
Environment

    Producing meat is a huge waste. To produce one animal protein, we need 5-10 vegetable protein.
   Here we have found a solution to feed the entire billion hungry humans.  Just in Quebec , there are more pigs than people.

    In terms of ecological footprint, we can suspect that there is a big difference between a vegetarian and a carnivore . Livestock production uses astronomical amounts of water, space, energy, resources and grants. It generates a lot of pollution .
Global warming

  The FAO says livestock production contributes more to global warming than transportation. According to various researchers and their ways of calculating, its contribution is between 20% and 40 % of the total.

   Here we have a simple and effective way to reduce our personal influence . It is easier to stop eating meat that to stop using our cars. It is a great news that we hear little about .
Health

   Pesticides, radio-active materials, toxins, heavy metals are concentrated along the food chain.  A salad will be generally less polluted than a chicken.  An example: the flesh of polar bears is very toxic. In Labrador, they made a regulation to limit the number of bears killed to protect ... the hunters against cancer.

  The amount of organochlorine pesticides in the blood of a child fed with organic food is 5-6 times lower than the blood of a child fed "normally. "


It is observed that many diseases are directly influenced by the consumption of meat : heart disease, avian flu, gout, food poisoning, etc.  Some say that the similarity of the symptoms of Alzheimer's and Mad Cow disease indicates similar origins.

   Many animals are now massively fed with GMO foods.  We thus find the pesticides of GMOs concentrated in meat.
Emotions

   Meat influences our instincts and emotions. At the time of his death, the animal releases in his body substances related to stress, fear, depression, anger.  We all know the expression: '' He ate some meat from an enraged cow! '' . Maybe the desperation of millions of animals condemned defenseless is one factor of the wave of mental problems that is sweeping our country.

   Eating flesh lowers our vibrational level and reduces our spiritual skills.
Dairy products

   Dairy products and eggs do not directly involve death or suffering.  However, it is good to remember that they contain as many pollutants as meat and that they also influence our tendencies and emotions.  Some researchers found a direct connection between dairies and autoimmune diseases .

   A study of millions of Chinese have found a very important direct link between dairy products and cancer.
Contamination

At our neighboring grocers,  a well-intentioned manager had put a sign informing about the precautions to take when handling meat to avoid direct or cross-contamination.  That very interesting panel remained very little time up.
Conclusion

In talking with a young hitchhiker that I had got in my car , I learned that he was a butcher . When I told him that I will never be a good customer for him because I was vegetarian, he replied : " I ​​too am a vegetarian. When you see what we do with meat , you do not want to eat that !!
