Great article - but unfortunately it won't reach the people it needs to reach because you can be absolutely certain that US corporate media will never expose these facts. Pass it on to people at home.

children who are raised as vegetarians, are exposed to nonviolence as a principle of peace and compassion. growing up they are remembering and being reminded to not kill. they won't even kill another creature to eat, to feed themselves and if they won't kill another creature to feed themselves, they will be much less likely to do acts of violence against people. eating a sentient being that was kept in cruel conditions and butchered for your pleasure. its a crime. a harvard study conducted in 1998. there were four groups tested based on diet. It was immediately apparent that the different diets had different effects on behavior. the group receiving natural food and clean water remained attentive and alert. the ones receiving natural food and hotdogs became violent and aggressive.the third group subsisting on products containing sugarcoated cereal and fruit punch was nervous, hyperactive and behaved aimlessly. the fourth group subsisting on doughnuts and cola were unable to function as a social unit. they were fearful and had trouble sleeping. when you look at this study it is no surprise that we could solve at lest 75-90% of our social behavior problems by simply going to a vegetarian diet. vegetarianism is an evolutionarily value, lifestyle, that more intelligent individuals are more likely to choose to become a vegetarian than less intelligent individuals. there appears very little doubt that more intelligent children are more likely to grow up to become vegetarian as adults. meat eating contributes to a mentality of violence, for with the chemically complex meat ingested, the body absorbs the slaughtered creature's fear, pain and terror. these qualities are nourished within the meateater, perpetuating the cycle of cruelty and confusion. how can someone practice true compassion when he/she eats the flesh of an animal to fatten his/her own flesh? described as "cellular starvation" most violence stems from anger, most anger can be traced to frustration and that invisible, frustration comes from feeling continuously dissatisfied at the cellular level. add this to the negative emotional states resulting from allergic/addictive reactions and you have an ongoing potential for violence. increased use results in toxic, devitalized and violence-prone individuals.
knowledge is not power its empowering lets be empowered
life has value beyond measure
