But, don't you think that is better because everything is less chemical and richer in terms of nutrients? We shall be talking more on this and a range of natural foods from the tropical regions of Africa. Please does anyone have something to say about this?

ANIMAL RIGHTS

Have you ever been to the slaughter houses where animals are slaughtered and sale? Try and visit there because after a few visit and your observation, you'll definitely stop eating meat. A co-worker once told me what he experienced when he went to the slaughter house to buy meat. He said as a cow was being killed, he saw it crying and tears were running down its cheek as it cried out for its life to be spared. He said he was shocked that day when he saw and felt and heard the strong feeling of plea and emotion in the voice of the animal but there was nothing he could do to stop the men from doing their job but on that day, he knew within him that those animals are like human beings though with a difference and they have a right to live like us and from that day, he stopped eating meat and animals. In African, there is a wand that can be used to catch criminals who are involved in killing human beings or stealing. It was employed by a state in the country and many criminals fled the state for fear of being caught. A man was caught and was almost destroyed before it was discovered that he was a butcher and sold meat in the market. Friends when you cut the life of animals short, you have karma to pay for it.

VEGETARIAN LIFE

Life being a vegetarian is one of the best in the world because when you don't kill animals each time you want to take a meal or you feel the joy of not being a party to the death of animals or human beings. It's just like being a cannibal when you kill animals for your food which I personally feel is not good. I have a clear conscience and a sense of freedom when I abstain from this practice because animals have a right to live just as humans have the right to live too. Take an instance when a pet is kept at home for a period of time and after living with the pet you get it killed and cooked for lunch or supper or whatever. You'll definitely feel a vacuum within you when you go back to where the animal used to be kept and find it is no longer there. 1. You'll feel you've done wrong by killing it. 2. You'll feel the vacuum. 3. You'll feel you've deprived it of its life which in the first place shouldn't take place. You've cut its life span short. So, it will be nice if you can come on board and join me in this journey of life of letting both animals and man live because they have a right to live as you also have a right to live. Live and let others live as always been a strong motto that I strongly believe in. Have a beautiful time friends!
