Hello from Paul, the owner of this website. I would like to thank you for taking the time to visit my site and hopefully gain a little insight into what’s involved in becoming a vegetarian.

I’ve been a vegetarian for 26 years now beginning in 1989 when I was 37 years young and I’ve had no regrets at all. I wish I’d done it sooner.

The joy of being able to eat food without having a conscience about how it got there is just one of the benefits I’ve gained from vegetarianism. I can really enjoy my food knowing that no animal has suffered in the process.

Recently, the newspapers have been reporting acts of extreme cruelty carried out in slaughterhouses throughout the country. Animals being badly mistreated before being dispatched (one man was secretly filmed stubbing out a cigarette on a live pig’s face, animals being kicked and even thrown about) and calls being made for these places to have cctv cameras set up to record any mistreatment.

The fact is that while the demand for meat increases, the “rights” if you want to call it that, of the animals will decline as they no longer become living, breathing things who feel pain and misery just like us, but are looked upon purely as a source of food. Force breeding and suffering are all part of the meat trade.

The change to becoming a vegetarian will do you an immense amount of good.

The health benefits from being vegetarian are enormous, not least in contributing to the prevention of cancer and heart disease, but also with helping you to reduce your cholestorol and having a guilt-free state of mind which leads to a better feeling of contentment and happiness within.

I hope you find something useful from this site (I’ll be adding to it periodically) and should you have any questions you’d like to ask me, please contact me at paul@howtobecomeavegetarian.org and I’ll do my best to answer your query as soon as possible.

All the best for now.
