Is being a vegetarian as harmful as eating meat?.


When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.


Is being a vegetarian as harmful as eating meat? Plants are shown to react to pain. I use to think that by not killing animals I was doing good, but the same damage is also caused to plants. After thinking, I thought the best method would be to eat plants that have fallen from the tree, but even that can be seen as harmful, where the worms and other creatures could have digested the fallen fruit but now cannot as I have taken it. What are your thoughts on this, I looked online and I constantly found the answer that plants don’t feel pain. I was hoping you could shed some light as to what your viewpoint is on this topic. Thank you.



Studies may have shown that plants react to stimuli, but it’s too big of a leap to say it experiences pain the way organisms with central nervous systems experience pain. Even the strictest non-violent sects still eat plants. Don’t worry that your diet is depriving other decomposing organisms of food. There’s still plenty for them. You can eat vegetables with a clear conscience. If you want to be a more conscious consumer, I suggest buying produce that is local, organic and sustainably grown.
