Nothing will benefit human health and increase chances for survival of life on Earth, as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.

~ Albert Einstein

They pity, and they eat the objects of their compassion.

According to the Dietitians of Canada and the American Dietetic Association's June 2003 Vegetarian Position Paper, approximately 4% of Canadian adults (900,000 people) and 2.5% of adults in the United States (4.8 million people) consistently follow vegetarian diets. Slightly less than 1% of those polled were vegans. But 20 to 25% of adults in the United States report that they eat four or more meatless meals weekly or "usually or sometimes maintain a vegetarian diet."

Flesh foods are not the best nourishment for human beings and were not the food of our primitive ancestors. There is nothing necessary or desirable for human nutrition to be found on meats or flesh foods, which is not found in and derived from plant foods.

~ Dr. J.H. Kellogg



Interest in vegetarian eating is on the rise. According to a 2005 Mintel food service report, the value of vegetarian-specific foods such as soymilk, veggie burgers and frozen vegetarian entrees, has increased by 64% since 2000 (or 45% in constant 2005 dollars). Sales in 2005 were worth $1.2 billion, and are projected to hit $1.7 billion by 2010.
