  • Yes, I am a vegetarian. I've never liked meat, I don't find the need to eat what I don't like.

  • When I was around 9 years old and really understood where the meat was coming from, I lost all desire to consume it. I'm an animal lover and to me, the thought of eating them would be how most people would feel if I suggested that they should eat a person. I'm in my 30's now, so that "phase" my parents thought I was going through as a kid sure has lasted a while :-)

  • I'm not but from my understanding there are 2 main reasons- Health and Ethics.

    Some people do feel that forgoing meat is actually healthier and how your body is supposed to function. Others either boycott it because of treatment or because they don't believe in eating other lifeforms.

  • I'm not. Some people think it's healthier though, and others don't like the idea of eating something that was alive.
