Famous Vegetarians, Vegans And Fruitarians

Folder: 
A Fellow Creature

 


Some abstain from mammal, bird and fish flesh for reasons of preventing animal murder, avoiding diseases associated with cadaver consumption, feeding the hungry by supporting higher food yield per acre, protecting the environment, saving energy, as well as spiritual, religious or aesthetic reasons. Others also say no to eggs and dairy because of the cruelty of factory farming, the dairy industry's relationship to calf murder, and the fact that 99.99% of all dairy cows are eventually murdered for meat..Still others are fruitarians because of plant sentience, highest acreage yield, healthiest food, least energy in production etc. These kind diets are expanding geometrically.

A partial list of the world's hundreds of millions of practitioners of nonviolent diet There are 450 million vegetarians in India alone  Not mentioned are millions of animal rights vegetarian and vegan activists.   Recent polls indicate 12% of millennials are among the 16 million American vegetarians and vegans.

Proponents of Vegetarian Diet who were not necessarily vegetarian

Isaac Newton
Voltaire

---------------------------------------------------------

"There is Dotsie Bausch, a seven-time U.S. national cycling champion who, at 39, was the oldest cyclist to ever qualify for the Olympics, not to mention return home with a silver medal. There is Patrik Baboumian, the former Germany’s Strongest Man who holds multiple world records, including lifting a staggering 1,213 pounds over his head. There is one of the greatest ultramarathoners of all time, Scott Jurek, who ran the Appalachian trail in 46 days, eight hours, and seven minutes—three hours faster than anyone else at the time, and months shorter than the average hiker. There are Roman gladiators, gorillas, and Arnold Schwarzenegger, all of whom have two things in common: superpower strength, and a plant-based diet.ts+Consciousness"

Vegetarians Who Did Harm (We have all harmed beings but some have done it on a greater scale.)

Rene Descartes who said "I think. Therefore I am". As a lab animal researcher, he nailed dogs' paws to tables so that they could not escape.
Adolph Hitler was a vegetarian responsible for the slow or fast murder of millions of Jews, Russians, victims in every country the Nazis invaded, Catholics, gays, gypsies etc. He tortured the generals who plotted to remove him. He bombed billions of animals or smashed them with tanks while providing animal cadavers to the German army.
Health vegetarian Thomas Alva Edison publicly electrocuted a prisoner and an elephant, dog, cat to demonstrate his electric chair. He thought the electric chair more humane than hanging.
