“A man can live and be healthy without killing animals for food; therefore, if he eats meat, he participates in taking animal life merely for the sake of his appetite. And to act so is immoral.”
– Leo Tolstoy.
Vegetarianism is the practice of avoiding the consumption of meat and seafood. Some people avoid consuming meat due to religious beliefs, health reasons or simply because they believe in animal rights.
Many famous celebrities like Beyonce, John Abraham and Bill Clinton follow animal-free diet. Vegetarians tend to have lower cholesterol and blood pressure levels, less heart problems and lower body mass index (BMI). A vegetarian diet is nutritious, and provides various health benefits. It also aids in the treatment of certain diseases.
