Re: Millions of vegetarians & vegans around the world...
"I've never eaten meat or fish ever - like many of Indian origin I'm an (ovo)-lacto-vegetarian,"
So you've never had an animal killed for the meat products you eat. Actually, very commendable.
But eggs and milk are meat products. Eliminate those, IE: Vegan diet, and you'd be much harder pressed to get the nutrients you need.
Some Vegans have resorted to Geophagy to compensate, and brag about it!
And now, Bec Hill:
"Some of my best friends are vegan. They were going to come today but they didn't have the energy to climb up the stairs."
