And if you are the one who continually tries to stop, eating non-vegetarian food, but you not able to take that bold step, this article is just for you which provides certain facts and put forward certain points which will assure you of your decision.

Here are the reason should you go vegan.

Human Body Is Not Meant To Consume Non-Vegetarian Food:

We are told that that meat is a rich source of calcium and fat. But have you ever been told that science has already proven the non-requirement of animal products in the human body?

And another fact which you might not know is that our canine teeth are quite small and are not meant for animal products as compared to omnivores who have sharp canine teeth which are meant for tearing flesh.

Our intestine is six times our body length just like the herbivores to digest vegetables and grains in contrary to those of carnivores whose intestine’s length is just three times the body length so that the meat can pass quickly before it can rot and cause diseases.

The stomach of the carnivores secretes juices which are strongly acidic.It helps them to tear down the meat faster and also quickly kill the germs which can sicken them or cause diseases and ours, in contrast, have a very weak acidic juice which doesn’t have that capability.

Demerits of non-vegetarian food:

  • Causes food poisoning:

Animal products contain blood, feces, and other kind’s harmful products which can cause food poisoning and may give rise to another kind of related health problems.

It is reported that the people who eat meat more often have more chances of having gastric and stomach related problems as compared to those who rely on vegetarian food.

  • Causes diseases:

The harmful pesticides and antibiotics, which are present in the animal can cause severe disorders in the body. They also cause cancer, diabetes, and other heart-related diseases.

Also, the digestive acids in our stomach are not that strong to break down the meat quickly. As a result, the meat can rot, and the germs present in them can cause various kinds of diseases. 

  • They make you weak:

In the due course of time, the animal products get deposited in your body and it obstructs the flow of oxygen even to the most vital organs, thus making you feel weak.You will feel dizzy all the time and will not be able to concentrate on your works.

  • An excessive amount of protein:

if we are following a meat based diet, we are consuming twice as much as protein, which is actually required and as a result we develop many diseases such as Osteoporosis and also lead to kidney stones.

  • Expensive:

Meat and other animal products are much more costly than the plant foods, more than double.And as a matter of fact, the plant food provides a more balanced and nutritious diet as compared to meat, so actually it is an unnecessary wastage of money.

Meat, chicken, and other non-vegetarian food are quite costly, and we spend quite a handful amount of money for these products.

By going green, you are going to cut the weekly spending by more than half and by doing so you are not decreasing your nutrition level, you are both increasing and balancing them.

  • Feel more energetic:

Fats present in animal products closes the pores, and not enough oxygen reaches the muscles, thus making you feel tired and weak.

On the other hand, the vegetarian foods don’t contain these and contains rich amounts of nutrition, which can help you get going all day long.

  • Save animals:

Have compassion for these animals that spend their whole lifetime in a closed arena where they don’t have the place to turn even around.

They wait to be slaughtered and consumed. Feel pity for these animals that are deprived of their natural freedom.
