A meatless diet

The domestication and slaughter of animals for food was considered one of man’s great achievements. But in recent years the meatless way of life has surged in popularity.
The death rate from heart disease was found highest in countries where the most animal products were consumed. Persons eating animal protein were found having higer levels of cholesterol in their blood than those fed a diet containing vegetable protein.
