All the time, my friends try to get me to eat meat and tell me how good it tastes and how much bigger I would be," said Silverman, who is 5-foot-10 and 170 pounds. "But for me, there's no real temptation."

I become vegetarian 15 years ago, and it was conscious choice, after I heard ships been killed during my routine pick up of fresh milk from the farmer..I was 10 years old and very traumatic experiance...its took me another 5 years and lots of fights with my parents before they stop forcing me to eat that time and long after in Poland was impossible to provide all nutrition for someone like me.....only after 1995 more alternative food came to our shops and also with years I gather books and knowledge how to eat to be healthy without eating meat....I am so happy with my decision and I never regret....for me vegetarianism is the correct way for future generations and I promote and educate people around me to at least reducing consumption of meat

In India around 15% of the population are vegetarians. They have good choice of vegetarian food. I heartily appreciate Monika for becoming a vegetarian which is her conscious choice overcoming all the difficulties. When I first learnt through net that many great scientists, writers, actors and many people in other fields are vegetarians, I felt very happy. I am a vegetarian right from my childhood. Now I stopped eating or using any animal product.
