Consumption of meat and health
The yogic concept and some religions, lacto-vegetarian diet balanced
to completely exclude meat, will determine a state of excellent
health. We are to a large extent what we eat, we learn yogic millennial
conception. Delicious that we swallowed with lust is ultimately
found more or less transformed, and then continue to exist some
time in each of our cells, influencing not only our physical health
and vitality but also just how to thinking and spiritual feelings.
With several thousand years ago, realized the immense importance
of wise yogis lacto-vegetarian food on health, also noting its multiple
effects on both the vitality and regeneration of body and mind.
Previous research has highlighted the fact that human anatomy is
not carnivore, like the digestive system which is adapted for the
digestion of fruit oilseeds, cereals and vegetables
As with anthropoid monkey, human intestines length totals about 12 times
the body length which makes obvious slow digestion of fruits and vegetables.
In an article published recently in the American magazine "Medical
Counter Point", S. Collius Williams wrote: "Man is endowed with
teeth obviously is more like that of herbivores than carnivores that:
they incisors sharp to cut grass, with flat molars to crush fruits and
vegetables, and short rounded canines to tear and crush unfit meat. "
carnivores have an almost unlimited capacity to absorb cholesterol saturated
fat. Dogs for example, can consume 250 g of butter along with their rations
of meat still appear normal without the slightest change in their arteries.
The amount of cholesterol is about. 100 times the average found in our
diet. In rabbits there is an amazing change of arterial walls to an increase
of only 2 g per day the amount of cholesterol. Eskimos, who live mainly
in meat, though aging rapidly, with an average life of only 27 years and
a half. Kirghiz, nomadic tribe of eastern Russia, whose regime essentially
consists only of the flesh grow old and die prematurely turn fast enough,
not to exceed, more often than age 40 years.
According to Encyclopedia Britannica, are found in animals killed large
quantities of toxins such as uric acid or other toxic wastes that are
both in their blood and in the tissues, which is due to biochemical changes
produced during the horrific agony animals struggling for their their
lives. One of the most serious problems of our century is cancer, vulnerability
and risk of cancer is increased in people consuming more meat. One of
the reasons that favor the disease could be that a piece of meat after
a few days after killing the animal acquires a gray-green olives, and
to prevent this degradation, the meat industry currently uses different
substances affecting human sasatatea time, such as nitrates and other
preservatives to make it artificially (but unhealthy) appear red.
animal fats such as cholesterol and blood vessel walls covers as eating
meat person ages, the opening of these vessels is diminished in more and
more. Pressure on the heart increases, resulting in increased vulnerability
to heart and blood pressure. In our society a person consuming meat of
two will be touched by heart disease or who is related to blood vessels,
while these same diseases are virtually unknown in countries where meat
consumption is very low.
Unlike plants that have a rigid cell membrane and a simple circulatory
system, animal cells die quickly when circulation is stopped. Immediately
after death, animal proteins are secreted enzymes coagulate and self-defeating
form a new substance emerges: "ptomaine".
Meat, fish and eggs are a common feature: they decompose and rot quickly.
The largest amount of meat consumed usually within a week or two and here
you have to remember that increasing the number of bacteria putrefaction
and begins almost immediately after death. Habit of consuming animal meat
such as it is characteristic of rapid decomposition creates violent poisons
in the colon and, furthermore, premature aging gastrointestinal tract.
Since we can live in healthy without eating meat is natural to ask whether
carnivorismul is a habit and human morality. Many religious and spiritual
groups have planned vegetarian diet, recognizing the sanctity of all life
and the need to live without causing suffering, among these groups are
found: Yogis, Hindus, Buddhists, zoroastrienii, Taoists, Essenes, the
Theosophical Society, Adventist Church, Unitarista Church, Order of the
Cross, Benedictinii, Trapistii, Universal Christian Gnostic Movement,
the Order of Rose Croix, etc.. In early times of Christianity, many Jewish
and Christian spiritual groups opposed to the toughness of meat consumption,
considering it a luxury expensive, barbaric and damaging health.
Anyone who has visited a slaughterhouse well known that animals suffer
greatly before and while cutting them. A wise, SRI AUROBINDO explain the
principle of Ahimsa - do no harm living beings, which means that our food
should, where possible, be chosen from among living creatures in the manifestation
of consciousness is minimized. Therefore, if we have available enough
vegetables, fruits, cereals and various dairy animals should never be
sacrificed (killed) to make food.
Changing a regime based solely on the meat with a lacto-vegetarian composed
of raw food, fresh, pure and nutritious is easier than we think. There,
on the contrary, plenty of delicious lacto-vegetarian specialties, with
a high nutrient content which, due to ignorance, we do not yet have never
had the opportunity to taste them even once, due to lack of information,
habits and conventional prejudice conditioning. Many are quite astonished
to find such protein-rich foods, prepared only plant based ingredients.
Radiant health that will result will be fast enough not only physical.
We get evidence to put the joy in charity actions and, with it, we feel
the overwhelming kindness that emanates from our permanent state of love
that is sent to all creatures (human and nonhuman). Vegetarianism can
be justified from a medical, biological, physical, mental and spiritual.
It is noteworthy that there is no intelligent argument against it.
