I'm emma from China.
I'm a vegetarian and a budhist too.
Different reason for those who choose to be vegetarian.
But for me,just 3 reasons below:
First:just for my health. Vegetarian may be more good to my health than meat and fish! And we all know ,the food chain,if we want to get enough meat for food ,we need to consume more grain and vegetarian.Just for reducing the consumption of energy and resourses. I'm an environmental protecotor,so I prefer this kind of food.
second:just for not make enemies with creatures.we are all creatures in this world and we are equal.I do believe life after death.This life,just I'm a person and he is a pig or other kinds of animals,but maybe next life be opposite.I just imagined if I were a pig when others killed me for food,how it will be my feeling,I feel not happy at all.So I refuse to eat animals!
third:that's good for my temper.I can control my temper better just through vegetable food.And I do believe this kind of food make me more elegance and kind than ever!~
So why not choose to be a vegetarian!
