no, demi-vegetarians are those who still eat fish - but no one seems to recognise this fact!!!

but they do sometimes they tie there hoofs and they bend there necks
only sometimes, and thats if they're being feisty I beleive... they probably don't mind that as much as not being sheared and getting all hot in the summer.

What do you call people who eat poultry and fish, but not red meat because of the health problems it causes? My dad's like that.

My step dad is a vegetarian and he has been for years and years and he has recently created a vegetarian community which i think is great but the bad thing is he is getting no visitors or nobody is visiting or signing upto his forums which he is getting quite annoyed at because he wants to get the word around, and my personal view i think its a great site it has alot of information on there about anything can you guys please check it out , thanks and maybe post your thoughts on the forums thanks alot guys the link is:

http://www.vegiesunited.com

You know if we didn't eat any animals the whole world would be covered by them!

Im lactose intolerant and a vegetarian. Think about how I feel. All I can eat is lettuce, lettuce soup, broccoli soup, banana mash, potato mash, fruit salad, leek soup, leek suprise, broccoli & leek suprise, roast broccoli....
That's hilarious...lol!!!

The surprises must indeed be the highlight of your diet.

Ive never eaten meat so cant really miss it but I don't really see the appeal in eating dead flesh. Does anyone know what the average length of time longer a vegetarian lives for is? i know i read it in an article several years ago and was just interested.

lol. i neva knew fish was a vegetable.

I am a vegetarian, only for about a year but I've already had to see the doctor and they told me to eat more iron (but I already bite my nails!)

I don't wear leather or suade except for one pair of shoes, which I have to have because my school says I have to have black leather shoes and I couldn't find anywhere that did veggie ones. will bury them when I leave nxt year.

No difference either way it seems really. Read that ^^

Vegetarians eat fish because they believe fish do not feel pain or become at all affected when they are caught and culled mercilessly.

Im a vegiterian and have been all my life. I had a period of time where i did it meat (chicken) for abt 3 months after peer presure but i didnt find it appealing after awhile. The reason for why i am a vegiterian is due to religion and do believe and agree in what my religion says about being a vegeterian, unlike some people who dont know the reason for being veg.

However i cant avoid having to where leather shoes and belts cause frankly i can never find a suitable pairs of shoes etc that are sold without that material in the UK.

I have just been to this forum, I would have stayed a while and looked around looked around but I didn't really want to be bombarded with animal rights propaganda. The site itself looks interesting but the images contained within it made me close the window straight away. I am all for animal rights, but I feel a more positive approach would have kept me browsing for longer. I hope your dad gets more visitors soon

I thought it would be shorter, a lot of vegetarians are malnourished.
Malnutrition does not come from being a vegetarian, but from having an unbalanced diet. The typical UK vegetarian diet already contains more protein than needed.

Vegans need to take B12 supplements, but other than that all essential nutrients can be obtained from a vegan diet.

I would be more worried by all the saturated fat in meat, frankly.

Not true. Animals are 'bred' for meat. Take out the animals bred for meat and you are left with animals in the wild. Who aren't running the world over last time I looked.
