2. Vegetarianism
Vegetarian diets have become more popular, and many parents may wonder if kidscan safely follow a vegetarian diet and still get all the nutrients necessary

As vegetarianism becomes more prevalent and popular, many parents may wonder if kids can safely follow a vegetarian diet and still get all the nutrients necessary for growing up healthy and strong. Avoiding meat may sound like a bad idea, but most dietary and medical experts agree that a well-planned vegetarian diet can actually be a very healthy way to eat. Of course, special care must be taken when feeding kids and teens a vegetarian diet, especially if it doesn't include dairy and egg products. And as with any diet, you'll need to not only ensure that your child is getting enough of all the necessary nutrients, but understand that the nutritional needs of children change as they grow. Types of Vegetarian Diets
Before your child or family switches to a vegetarian diet, it's important to note that all vegetarian diets are not alike. Some of the major vegetarian categories include:
  • ovo-vegetarian - eats eggs; no meat
  • lacto-ovo vegetarian - eats dairy and egg products; no meat
  • lacto-vegetarian - eats dairy products; no eggs or meat

3. The Essential Of Vegetarianism

The Essential of Vegetarianism
By Punkerslut [Author's Note: First paragraph composed on Saturday March 30, 2002, at 3:45 A.M. in the morning and sleep deprived, right about the time I was becoming slightly delusional. It was finished on Monday, April 1, 2002.] The Essential of Vegetarianism Vegetarianism is as essential as the beauty in Romanticism. It is, itself, like a garden of affection, a plethora of compassion. Civilization defines it as the abstinance from meat. The heart defines it as humaneness in action the epitome of truth and kindness. If every man can be measured against his virtues and vices, then the man who refuses to consume creatures of this Earth will be virtuous by incountable degrees. Any person who has come in contact with an animal, has caressed its scales or fur, will know that it reacts to the world around it, will know that it is a conscious being they will know that it is just as human as they are, just as sensitive, and just as alive in a real sense. The humane man will grant the animals of this world what he grants his fellow men: the right to live and be happy. On the basis of humaneness, on the foundation of sympathy, the humane man will not destroy ancient forests that are homes to millions of animals, nor will he raise an animal to be destroyed to please his senses of vanity or appetite. It is this, Vegetarianism, that is essential. There are those who call Vegetarianism a thing that will bring no change, that it has no hopes of reform. But those men who have a single sense of humanity and dignity will attest to this creed that all animals deserve rights. Like the honey bee that tries to get nector from a dead flower, a bear trying to nurse her sick cub, a child waiting hours for his father to come home, Vegetarianism is as essential as the very force of life that runs through the heart of every living man.

Our aim is that this website makes this a bit easier.
We hope you'll find the information on this website useful. Browse our listings of health food shops and vegetarian restaurants , check out our Irish vegetarian recipes click on our links

Vegetarianism and Investing
Investing in animal-based companies may appear to be a good strategy, but in the long run it could represent a threat to personal finances, and an economy based on such companies may threaten the economy itself. Also, it eventually could lead to a world where few of us would want to live. By contrast, vegetarianism has great potential as an investment. First, let us consider four considerations that are not directly financial: 1. Vegetarianism is a great investment in ourselves, in our health, since animal-centered diets have been directly linked to heart disease, several forms of cancer, strokes, and other degenerative illnesses. No matter how successful one's financial investments, what good are they if one lacks the good health to enjoy them? 2. Vegetarianism is a great investment in a cleaner, more sustainable world, because modern intensive animal agriculture is a significant contributor to soil erosion and depletion, air and water pollution, widespread use of pesticides and other chemicals, the destruction of tropical rain forests and other habitats, and global warming. What is the value of a large house and other assets if one does not have a decent planet on which to enjoy them? 3. Vegetarianism is a great investment in a more peaceful, less violent world, because animal-centered diets, by wasting valuable resources, help to perpetuate the widespread hunger and poverty that eventually lead to instability and war. What is the value of extensive financial assets in a world plagued with war and violence?

6. Vegetarianism, By Peter Singer
Article from Ted Honderich (ed.), 'The Oxford Companion to Philosophy' (Oxford, 1995).
Vegetarianism Peter Singer In Ted Honderich (ed.), The Oxford Companion to Philosophy , Oxford, 1995, p. 897 The view that we should avoid eating meat or fish has ancient philosophical roots. In the Hindu Upanishads (about 1000 BC) the doctrine of reincarnation leads to opposition to eating meat. Buddha taught compassion for all sentient creatures. Buddhist monks were not to kill animals, nor to eat meat, unless they knew that the animal had not been killed for their sake. Jains hold to ahimsa , or non-violence toward any living creature, and accordingly do not eat meat. In the Western tradition, Genesis suggests that the first diet of human beings was vegetarian, and permission to eat meat was given only after the Flood. After that, vegetarianism gains little support from either the Jewish or Christian scriptures, or from Islam. Philosophical vegetarianism was stronger in ancient Greece and Rome: it was supported by Pythagoras Empedocles Plutarch Plotinus ... Porphyry , and, in some passages, Plato . Pythagoreans abstained from eating animals partly because of their belief that humans and animals share a common soul, and partly because they appear to have considered the diet a healthier one. Plato shared both these views to some extent. Plutarch's essay

7. Christian Vegetarianism
Provides scriptures about being vegetarian, explains old and new testamentprincipals of being a vegetarian, and provides links.
CHRISTIAN VEGETARIANISM "A BIBLICAL APPROACH TO LIFE" Go forth to every part of the world and proclaim the good news to the whole creation". (Mark 16:15 ) Traditional Christian abstinence from animal flesh is usually associated with its esoteric sects and the search for spiritual growth through physical discipline. The significant rise of vegetarianism in recent years has inevitably come to include a Christian minority within its ranks. Whilst the values themselves may appear to have altered, they stem once again from the very essence of the faith itself. The spiritual truth; Do unto others as you would have done unto you is by no means unique to Christianity. It can be found within the sacred scriptures of every major world religion. At the heart of Christianity, in particular, can be found the qualities of love, mercy, compassion, pity and peace. This will sound ironic in the light of just how badly the spirit of the religion has at times been embodied by its adherents. In itself, vegetarianism is but one small step towards approximating the peaceable kingdom. There exists no ' pure land ' theology, but a need for humility as well as vision. To a growing number of Christians, however, there exists no means of reconciling the institutionalised violence of the meat industry, and its inherent disrespect for life, with divine will. Far from being a substitute religion or a modern day heresy, vegetarianism is increasingly advocated on Biblical grounds. To many, it is not merely an objection to the conduct of the world, but a physical statement of faith.

10. An Argument For Vegetarianism
A slightly unusual utilitarian argument for vegetarianism.
An argument for vegetarianism
(Incomplete first draft)
Introduction and Purpose
This paper attempts an argument for vegetarianism. Its goal is to maximise utility, by decreasing the number of practicing meat eaters. It is an argument that assumes the reader holds a utilitarian position; if the reader does not, I have no hope of convincing him - or, at least, not solely with this paper. Let that reader look elsewhere. [ Firstly I will say what I believe ought be sufficient for this paper to be successful. I do not, I make quite clear, have to prove that vegetarianism results in maximal utility, all consequences considered. I am not a fortune-teller - I cannot predict what all the consequences of any far-reaching action will be. Fortunately, I do not need to be: utilitarians being, I hope, reasonable people, I have only to show that, for the reader, vegetarianism will likely result in a level of utility higher than the alternative. [ I will also make clear that this paper is not meant as the "last word" on the issue of vegetarianism - by all means, let this issue be discussed. If, at any point, my case seems to lack evidence, I hope the fair-minded reader will inquire as to how much evidence is easily available for alternative conclusions, and wonder if indeed my argument is insufficient against it. And if there exist substantial arguments against my position, which I have not raised here, let them be brought them out into the light of critical examination.
On Content and Structure
This paper parts company with the normal vegetarian promotional literature from the first, by starting with oft-neglected animals - the fishes. Fishing is the most common method of taking animals from the wild for food (in western society), most other animals we eat being domesticated and reared for that purpose. I will say that the case against commercial fishing is, on utilitarian terms, stronger than the case against (e.g.) beef production. It is therefore possible that the reader will be convinced that to continue eating fish is wrong, but that to continue eating beef is not.

    What is a Vegetarian?
    Vegetarians do not eat meat, fish, and poultry. Vegans are vegetarians who abstain from eating or using all animal products, including milk, cheese, other dairy items, eggs, wool, silk, and leather. Among the many reasons for being a vegetarian are health, ecological, and religious concerns, dislike of meat, compassion for animals, belief in non-violence, and economics. The American Dietetic Association has affirmed that a vegetarian diet can meet all known nutrient needs. The key to a healthy vegetarian diet, as with any other diet, is to eat a wide variety of foods, including fruits, vegetables, plenty of leafy greens, whole grain products, nuts, seeds, and legumes. Limit your intake of sweets and fatty foods.
    Making the Change to a Vegetarian Diet
    Many people become vegetarian instantly. They totally give up meat, fish and poultry overnight. Others make the change gradually. Do what works best for you.
