Shocking Things You Didn’t Know About Vegetarianism

Here are 5 reasons why vegetarianism may be neither healthy nor ethical:

  1. Vegetarians may eat too much sugar

What do vegetarians eat? Potatoes, rice, bread, fruit and vegetables are all staple vegetarian foods, but unfortunately these are all carbs, i.e. pure sugar. And sugar is highly inflammatory; it suppresses your immune system and leads to auto-immune conditions, insulin resistance, diabetes and heart disease, and brain deterioration. Interestingly enough, high fructose consumption is the number one cause for non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and artery plaque. Moreover, sugar and grains are highly addictive and act the exact same way in the body as cocaine does. Now, just think about how much sugar you consume daily on a vegetarian diet, considering that 150g of rice equals 10 teaspoons of sugar! Doesn’t sound too healthy, does it?

  1. Vegetarians may eat too much seed oils

Butter and lard are way better than any seed oil. Seed oils are unstable; they oxidize quickly and create toxicity in the body. Butter (especially clarified butter), lard and coconut oil, on the other hand, are associated with gut health, brain health and more efficient fat burning. Note that there is no scientific proof that saturated fats lead to heart disease. In fact, the evidence goes the opposite way: numerous recent studies are showing that high consumption of saturated fats (in the absence of sugar!) is protective for the heart. High consumption of seed oils, on the other hand, has been shown to leads to migraines, IBS, allergies and cancer, to name a few. So a fatty beef cut is actually a way healthier option than a bag of roasted nuts.

  1. Vegetarians may be nutrient-deficient and malnourished

Plant-based protein, with the exception of soy and quinoa, is incomplete, that’s why many vegetarians (and especially vegans) are malnourished. Vegetarians are also at a higher risk of iron and B12 deficiency, decreased immune system function, and decreased nervous system function. Importantly, processed vegetarian protein options such as tofu cause more greenhouse gas pollution than farming meat. Not to mention the fact that soy is highly inflammatory and leads to major hormonal imbalances.

  1. Vegetarians are killing plants

Some vegetarians mistakenly elevate the value of animal life over plant life. However, research shows that plants respond electrochemically to threats and actually feel fear and stress. So vegetarians are affecting plants the way meat eaters affect animals. In both cases, we have an act of killing in order to survive. But that’s neither cruel nor unethical; it is a natural part of the cycle of life. Every organism on earth (animal or plant) dies or is killed, at some point, so other organisms can live. There is nothing wrong with this cycle; it is how nature works. Thus, there is no difference between killing an animal and killing a plant. You either kill, or you die. Being a vegetarian doesn’t make you a better, kinder person (although you may have been indoctrinated to think so). You are no different than anyone else on this planet that eats to live.

  1. Vegetarians cause the death of animals too

According to a 2003 study by Steven Davis at Oregon State University, about six animals per acre, or 52-77% of the animals (such as birds, mice, and rabbits) that live in agricultural crop fields, are killed during harvest.
