The easiest step in avoiding being the cause
of unnecessary suffering is to stop killing
others to satisfy your palate. You certainly
don't need to eat meat and there are theories
that eating meat may be almost as harmful to
you as it was to the poor animal you bite into.
But don't stop there! You could take it a
step further and avoid consuming any products
that are effectively stolen from other animals.
A vegan lifestyle is one that avoids meat,
dairy, honey, leather, beeswax, etc. You
don't even have to stop there! You can
become a fruitarian and avoid plant foods
that involve killing the plant. Of course,
living a fruitarian lifestyle makes living
a vegan lifestyle seem like a piece of cake!
