Nope, just think the vegans need to use their canines and incisors for what they evolved them for.

Obviously because of the health benefits it could give. But most people are drawn to vegetarianism by all sorts of motives. Some of us want to live longer, healthier lives or do our part to reduce pollution. Others have made the switch because they want to preserve our natural resources or because we’’ve always loved animals and are ethically opposed to eating them. Well i think being a vegan is definitely more of a lifestyle choice and a philosophy than a diet.

I know. Vegetarianism is a bit confusing. For whatever reason, there are official categories that differ from Webster's interpretation. Either Webster is currently out of date in that department, or some people made a mistake. I'm leaning towards both, since even my 1989 edition of a Betty Crocker's Cookbook breaks vegetarianism down more thoroughly than Webster. I wouldn't be surprised, to be honest, since Webster isn't exactly known as much of a source for research. The types of vegetariansim that don't completely abstain from animal products are more known as semi-vegetarianism.

I also question lifelong hard-core vegetarianism/veganism.

A semi-vegetarian is only partially vegetarian, because if they were actually a vegetarian, they wouldn't eat meat.

there is no vegetarian that eats meat. there are those that eat milk and its products and unfertilized egg and its products but none that eat meat.

My wife is a vegetarian. She saw a movie about the meat production industry when she was young, and since then she can't eat meat. She has no problem buying or preparing meat dishes for me and my kids though. It's just a personal thing for her.

My sis became a vegetarian for a bet when she was 14. She'd promise to go meat free for a week. It lasted just over 7 years. At the end of the week there was something on the news about contaminated meat. She decided not to bother going back. The only reason things changed when she was 21 was because she was pregnant and got a craving for chicken.

A diet with some meat need not be unhealthy likewise a vegetarian diet doesn't necessarily mean it would be healthier.

Some people just don't like the idea of eating dead animals. I mean, I personally don't get it. Other animals will eat other without a second thought. It isn't barbarism; just the circle of life. Regardless, it's their choice not to eat meat. Although I myself personally agree with Chie when it comes to matters of juicy, succulent, deliciousness.

Human cannibalism is wrong, eating animals is wrong, but veggies and fruits are fine.

I'm tired humanity.

I became vegetarian because I've always been a big lover of animals. I've never been a big meat-eater, so it was pretty easy to cut meat out of my diet.

I think there can be several reasons depending on the person.
Perhaps they don't like the thought of eating animals, or maybe whenever they eat meat, it does not feel too good. I can't really explain that well haha.

For me, I just don't eat meat on Fridays, and pray to the spirits of these animals in hopes that they pass on to a less painful experience.

Because DBZ characters have vegetables and broccolis for names and become super strong possibly because of those things.

I'm not a vegetarian but those I know who are usually say it's just a personal choice or it's for health reasons (my close friend can't stomach meat at all because it makes her sick).

People think the killing of the animals in meat factories is inhumane and cruel, so by being vegetarian, they essentially think they're "boycotting" the factories, even if they still have plentiful consumer sales.

Some people actually become vegetarians because they are repulsed by, or tired of meat. My current teacher is a psudeo vegetarian who seldom eats meet because she basically grew up in a household where they ate meat excessively.
