World Vegetarian Day

Filed under: Hinduism,India — hindumommy @ 11:10 am

A couple of months ago, there was a survey that showed that most Indians are not vegetarian. This is contrary to the popular notion of Hindus being vegetarian.

 Albert Einstein had said

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

Studies have shown that vegetarians (following a well-balanced low-fat high-fibre vegetarian diet) often have lower incidence of coronary artery disease, hypertension, obesity and some forms of cancer. They may also have a lower risk for some other diseases such as constipation, diverticular disease, gallstones and appendicitis.

    Then man may become a cannibal! God forbid.
    There is a saying
    ” Serve all beings as service to God”.
