Some people choose to eat no meat or fish. They believe that this is not only better for their own health but also benefits the world as a whole. Discuss this view and give your own opinion.

The number of
vegetarian
Suggestion
vegetarians
in a community may depend on various factors,
for example
the traditions of the country, the wealth of the country, the religion or the age group.
Therefore
, the reasons why people choose to exclude
meat
and fish from their diet may
also
vary. Some people become vegetarian because they believe that
this
will benefit their health. Undoubtedly, eating too much
meat
, especially too much red
meat
, is not to be recommended.
Moreover
, the fact that there are healthy populations in some parts of the world where no one eats
meat
proves that it is not, as some people claim, an essential part of the human diet.
However
, it is important to ensure that enough protein,
for example
, is included in the diet from other sources. Where vegetarianism is not a tradition,
this
may require some careful planning. In my experience, it is quite common for people to become vegetarians because they feel that it is selfish to eat
meat
or because
meat
production increases global warming. They may
also
feel that if no one ate
meat
, there would be no food shortage, because
meat
production uses up food resources.
This
idealistic point of view is very attractive, but it is hard to judge whether it is in fact correct. In some families, if a teenager decides to become a vegetarian, they may do so partly out of a spirit of rebellion, because
this
behaviour can be interpreted as a criticism of their parents’ way of life.
However
, provided that they continue to eat healthily, the parents should not raise objections, in my opinion. Vegetarianism is a valid choice in life.
Moreover
, research shows that vegetarians tend to be healthier in many ways than
meat
-eaters. Personally, I think that being a vegetarian is a good idea in principle as there are proven health benefits and probably social benefits as well.
However
, it does not suit everybody, and I doubt whether it will ever be a universal choice.
