  • General & Nutritional Concerns | Vegetarian Society (Singapore)
    investigation revealed that the average physician in US received less than 3 hours of training in nutrition during the 4 years of medical school The food guide pyramid recommended by the Singapore government closely follows that of the United States The US Department of Agriculture USDA created the pyramid in 1992 Recently the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine PCRM won its lawsuit against the USDA bringing national attention to the heavy influence of the meat dairy and egg industries in the creation of federal food policies U S District Court Judge James Robertson ruled that the USDA violated federal law by withholding documents revealing bias among its advisory panel Nutritional evidences and statistics researched by responsible medical institutions and universities have not been taken seriously in the food policies It is thus clear that financial interests often over rule our health interests There is simply no such thing as we have to take meat or whatever food for that matter Our body require nutrients and it doesn t matter where we get them so long as we get them Plant foods can meet all the requirements of a healthy diet To many people nutritional advices have too often been contradictory and confusing Why listen to others Experiment yourself with a healthy vegetarian diet and discover the benefits now Top Do I need to take vitamin and mineral supplements on a Vegetarian diet As with all diets regardless meat or vegetarian healthy living through diet depends on meal planning As a vegetarian the important concern is to eat a variety of plant foods from grains vegetables fruits legumes nuts and seeds A vegetarian diet can be unhealthy if one is negligent on proper eating but a meat diet is easily much worse Before you turned vegetarian you may as a meat eater be deficient in a particular mineral or vitamin due to absorption and digestion problems and therefore may continue with your supplements Your digestion and elimination will improve as a vegetarian and so over a period of time your colon will be cleansed therefore your body may better assimilate food and get natural benefits without taking supplements Vitamin D should be obtained from exposure to direct sunlight twenty minutes three times per week Vitamin B12 is known to be difficult to obtain from a pure vegetarian diet which is without any animal products One may choose to take B12 supplements just to be on the safe side Other than that unless you have unique health problems all other supplements like iron zinc B vitamins supplements are not necessary Special attention might have to be paid to calcium rich plant foods And women should pay extra attention to iron due to blood loss during periods This is so even if you are a meat eater Studies have shown that female vegetarians are not at higher risk than meat eaters to suffer from iron deficiencies Top Are organic veggies and fruits necessary to attain good health Organic is certainly better for health

  • Common Arguments | Vegetarian Society (Singapore)
    to a flood of toxins into their flesh A vegetarian diet is a far better for our moral conscience and our health than eating any type of meat or seafood Besides if everybody in the world go for free range animals and the demand for meat remains the same the damage on our environment will be far worse Top Isn t what we eat part of the life cycle The life cycle should naturally be based on the needs of each life forms and not on taste Moreover the life cycle is nothing but a show of the stronger over the weaker and thus cannot be a basis where we humans as the highest life form with conscience should act Just because we can does not mean we should Lions will eat us if they overpower us likewise we can eat them too if we overpower them But should we Need we Do we exist just to satisfy our stomachs regardless of the cost or do we live for a higher purpose on earth Top How are you going to get the Eskimos to be Vegetarians Eskimos don t have to be vegetarian They can t They are born in an environment where they don t have the choice Sadly their average lifespan is only about 30 to 40 years old and they have the highest rate of osteoporosis in the world of which their fish diet plays a significant part In any case Eskimos do have a choice of leaving their environment The question now is do we have a choice How should we exercise that choice for the benefit of our own health and the well being of our environment the world and all other beings Top Doesn t God gives humans permission to eat meat in Genesis 9 This entire article is taken from Jesus Veg St Jerome wrote As to the argument that in God s second blessing Gen 9 3 permission was given to eat flesh a permission not given in the first blessing Gen 1 29 let him know that just as permission to put away a wife was according to the words of the Savior not given from the beginning but was granted to the human race by Moses because of the hardness of our hearts Mt 19 so also in like manner the eating of flesh was unknown until the Flood It is a sign of our poorly developed theological understanding that anyone uses Genesis 9 to justify the violence and cruelty inherent in today s factory farms and slaughterhouses In Genesis 9 God makes a covenant between God and humans and every kind of living creature It is important to recall that by the time of the flood God had come to realize that human hearts are set on evil from childhood Genesis 8 and it is in the context of evil that God allows both eating animals and slavery in Genesis 9 it is interesting to read the congressional debate
