According to the World Health Organization, processed meat is deemed a carcinogen that increases your risk of colon or rectum cancer by 18 percent. Science shows that it’s not only red meat that’s bad for you, but so is white meat including chicken.

A vegetarian diet on the other hand keeps our bodies healthy and mind active, and helps us live longer. According to a recent finding, vegetarians had a 12% reduction in the risk of death from any cause compared with non-vegetarians, which goes to show that a vegetarian diet is the way forward for a long and healthy life.

The Vedic scriptures of India, also stress nonviolence as the ethical foundation of vegetarianism. “Meat can never be obtained without injury to living creatures,” states the Manu-Samhita, the ancient Indian code of law, “Let one therefore shun the use of meat”. In another section, the Manu-Samhita says, “Having well considered the disgusting origin of flesh and the cruelty of fettering and slaying of corporeal beings, let one entirely abstain from eating flesh.”
