I am a buddhist.
I am also a strict vegetarian, as I believe that animals should be protected from harm. Being vegetarian also has multiple advantages for your health and the environment.

With a healthy diet it is possible to prevent or even reverse some diseases such as atherosclerosis, which leads to heart attacks or strokes, as well as type 2 diabetes, or hypertension. It also helps with cancers.
I wish you to be happy!
