-The flavor of a dead animal in your mouth for a few minutes.
The advantages to not eating meat:
-When you eat meat, you are very likely to support the suffering
of animals. The vast majority of all animals for food production is
kept in extremely small, dark quarters and rarely gets to walk, fly or
swim freely. The killing process is in many cases lengthy and involves
a lot of suffering.
-Animals feel pain, remember pain, and have long-lasting behavioral changes due to pain and discomfort.
-Animals are not worth any "less" than a human. Animals are
different than humans. Humans can do things that animals can't do,
animals can do things that humans can't do. Just because an animal can
not scream, cry, talk or have facial expressions does not mean that the
animal does not have pain or discomfort or is not aware of its
-Many people in the world are starving due to grain shortages
(also soy and others). among other factors of course. Producing one
pound of red meat requires appr. 17 pounds of grain. If people quit
eating meat, there would be more than enough grain to feed everyone.
(See "ENVIRONMENT" section)
-According to a 2006 United Nations initiative, the livestock
industry is one of the largest contributors to environmental
degradation worldwide, and modern practices of raising animals for food
contributes on a "massive scale" to air and water pollution, land
degradation, climate change, and loss of biodiversity. The initiative
concluded that "the livestock sector emerges as one of the top two or
three most significant contributors to the most serious environmental
problems, at every scale from local to global." (LEAD digital library:
Livestock's long shadow - Environmental issues and options)
-Animal farming greatly increases the greenhouse effect. Animal
farming produces 65 percent of human-related nitrous oxide (which has
296 times the global warming potential of CO2) and 37 percent of all human-induced methane (which is 23 times as warming as CO2).
It is also accused of generating 64 percent of the ammonia, which
contributes to acid rain and acidification of ecosystems. (LEAD digital
library: Livestock's long shadow - Environmental issues and options)
-It takes appr. 17 pounds of grain to produce one pound of red
meat. To grow, transport and clean the grain and to wash, transport,
slaughter and process the animals, hundreds of liters of fresh water
are needed, as well as lots of oil (mainly to transport the grain and
animals and to get the water from one place to another). Lots of
electrical energy is needed to keep meat cold to keep it from rotting
fast (it still rots) between the killing of an animal and the
consumption of its meat. In other words, it is a huge waste of energy

-Many large-scale studies have shown vegetarianism to
significantly lower risks of cancer, ischemic heart disease, and other
fatal diseases. (Key, Timothy J, et al., 1999 "Mortality in
vegetarians and nonvegetarians: detailed findings from a collaborative
analysis of 5 prospective studies" American Journal of Clinical
Nutrition, Vol. 70, No. 3, 516S-524S, September 1999) and others

-Non-lean red meat, in particular, has been found to be a direct
cause of cancers of the lung, esophagus, liver, and colon, among
others. (Meat can raise your lung cancer risk, too", MSNBC, 2007-12-11)
-American vegetarians tend to have lower body mass index, lower
levels of cholesterol, lower blood pressure, and less incidence of
heart disease, hypertension, type 2 diabetes, renal disease,
osteoporosis, dementias such as Alzheimer's disease and other
disorders. (Mattson, Mark P. (2002). Diet-Brain Connection: Impact on Memory, Mood, Aging and Disease. Kluwer Academic Publishers.)
-Eating of red meat has been linked to earlier manifestations of impotence in men, due to the high saturated fat content.
Harvard University as well as other studies conducted in the United
States, Great Britain, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and various
European countries, have confirmed that vegetarian diets provide more
than sufficient protein intake as long as a variety of plant sources
are available and consumed.
There are a lot more advantages to not eating meat. If you want to
find out more, please do an online search for "vegetarianism".
How do I become a vegetarian?
-You quit eating meat. It's probably easiest to quit "cold
turkey". After about two weeks, you will likely have completely lost
the desire to consume animals and you will wonder how you were ever
able to chew on a dead animal.
-When you quit eating meat, try to also reduce eating junk food,
sodas, and eat as little refined sugar as possible. That way, you will
likely automatically eat more of those foods that will give you all the
nutrients you need.
-To avoid protein deficiencies, try to eat plenty of beans, nuts, grain-based products and soy-based products.
-To avoid iron and vitamin B-deficiencies, try to eat plenty of green leafy vegetables.
I decided to only post a few references. I have researched all
above points thoroughly. If you want more specific information or look
at studies, please do an online search and you will likely easily find
tons of information.
I realize that the very first statement on this website is not
correct at all times. In extremely rare cases, you may be able to eat
meat and not contribute to suffering, terrible working conditions and
all the other things shown in the pictures. If I were put in a forest
with nothing else to eat, I would probably go ahead and try to catch,
kill and eat an animal. I would still not feel good about it, but my
will to survive will most likely drive me to do such thing. It is
natural. Please keep in mind that "natural" does not necessarily mean
"good" or "right".
Animals who are killed by predators in their natural environment
have the huge advantage that they got to live a life in freedom and got
to do the things that likely made them happy. I am aware that some
animals suffer in nature as well, but that is probably very different
and a lot less the case in nature than when being part of the food

You probably got to this website because you saw "NOMEAT.NET" on a
t-shirt. The person who wore that shirt was most likely me, the guy who
put this website together. Feel free to ask me any questions about
vegetarianism or whatever you want to ask me. I have 27 t-shirts with
"NOMEAT.NET" on them in all kinds of different material colors and
print colors. A while ago, I realized that I was almost always wearing
t-shirts that had random stuff printed on them, mostly names of big
companies. I decided that instead of supporting those big companies, I
might as well support something that I consider worthwhile -
vegetarianism. If just one person eats one piece of meat less, it was
worth it. Thank you for reading!
