But many of us don’t realize that one of the easiest ways to keep ourselves healthier and stop eating things like those pesticides and food diseases is to stop eating one large food group: meat. Other than health people give up meat for various reasons. Religious reasons also keep people from eating meat. In the Jewish culture you cannot eat pork and in the Rastafarian religion you are required to be a vegetarian. In many Hindu and Indian religions the consumption of meat is not allowed as well. There are economic reasons for being a vegetarian also. Meat costs a lot of money, not only to raise and produce, but also to buy from the store.
