    I've been vegetarian all of my life through religious reasons.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to impose or force you to be vegetarian, I just want your opinions.

    Religious reasons? I'm curious. The only religion I can think of where vegetarianism is vital is Jainism. Buddhism's a little more over the place on this issue and not as relevant.

    But yeah, I'm a vegetarian too, for moral reasons.

    Only for ethical reasons (animal welfare and environmental reasons). Health-wise, you can eat chicken, fish, lean unprocessed red meat, and low fat dairy and be in the best form possible.

    We need a rule about quoting Einstein btw. If you quote him on anything other than theoretical physics, you'd need to put £1 coin in a big jar somewhere in Switzerland.

    I'm already vegetarian. Preach it!

    ...except don't actually preach it because then people will probably complain.

    Yes and I was a vegetarian for a number of years. I find the environmental arguments very compelling but I don't quite think I'm ready to give meat up just yet. So I'm focusing on reducing meat consumption, particularly meat with high input costs.

    Yeah, I'm a Hindu and whilst some Hindus consume meat, on the whole most of the people who are Hindu do not consume any animal products other than milk.

    Definitely not, even if it guaranteed me an extra 10-15 years of life.

    Vegetarian since birth. I don't have any reason to switch to eat meat so I don't. Plus it's sad what they do to animals.

    Also some MRSA strain was found in some pork recently... that's scary huh?

    I've was a vegetarian for just over a year but have stopped recently.

    I still try and minimise the amount of meat in my diet, but I am loving being able to eat a wider variety of meals- it's also sooo much easier when going round to other people's houses, meals out etc.

    I'm vegan, and that quote from Einstein shows great insight.
