People become vegetarians for all kinds of reasons. Some are allergic to fish or meat. Others only consider the environmental issues. For most the treatment of animals in modern farming methods plays at least some part. My personal reasons have a lot to do with most of those (not the allergy), but also with another less well known factor: being a vegetarian is supposed to be good for spiritual development. The consumption of meat (especially blood) is said to make a person more aggressive. So if you want to become more peaceful it makes sense to stop eating meat.
Vegetarians don't eat fish either. If you do eat fish, please don't call yourself a vegetarian. Call yourself a pescatarian or something.
While a vegetarian diet has the public image of being unhealthy, it is certainly healthier than say a 'McDonalds' diet. On the other hand, there are some things to look out for. I've collected them on my lens: vegetarian health tips.
But all that aside: did you know there are vegetarian foods that just plain make you happy :)
