"Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet."- Albert Einstein

"While we ourselves are the living graves of murdered beasts, how can we expect any ideal conditions on this earth?" - George Bernard Shaw

"The vegetarian movement ought to fill with gladness the souls of those who have at heart the realization of God's kingdom upon Earth." - Leo Tolstoy

"But for the sake of some little mouthful of flesh, we deprive a soul of the sun and light, and of that proportion of life and time they had been born to enjoy."- Plutarch

People often say that humans have always eaten animals, as if this is a justification for continuing the practice. According to this logic, we should not try to prevent people from murdering other people, since this has also been done since the earliest of times. - Issac Bashevis Singer

Vegetarianism may have important health benefits in lowering the risk of lung cancer, obesity, hypertension, gallstones, type 2 diabetes, etc. However, certain vegetarian diets may be lacking in key nutrients such as Vitamin B12, Vitamin D, calcium, iron, zinc and possibly protein. Deficiencies in these nutrients can cause health problems. A balanced vegetarian diet, possibly aided by supplements, can provide required amounts of these and other nutrients.
