(4) Read the following passage and answer the questions

that follow

Vegetarianism promotes a natural way of life. But despite its implicit message
of universal love and non-violence it has not spread as it should have. This may
be because it usually is an inward - looking habit and is best cultivated in the
mind.

g.
co

Leading a vegetarian way of life helps the animal kingdom to co-exist with
man. The animals supply milk, manure and energy. This has been central to the
Indian culture for thousands of years. A vegetarian lifestyle is natural,
multifaceted and helps self-preservation in a healthy way. Food and health are
closely related.

lo

The Western science of food considers food as something to sustain only the
human body, whereas the Indian science considers food as something which
sustains not only the body but also maintains the purity of heart, mind and soul.

ik

ib

Vegetarian foods provide an infinite variety of flavours whereas non-vegetarian


foods have hardly any taste of their own. In fact, non-vegetarian foods have to
be seasoned with ingredients from the vegetable kingdom to make them
palatable.

In sports disciplines, vegetarians leads in endurance tesfs. "You are what you
eat" is an old saylng and it is a fact that it is the food that makes the man. The
food we eat, its quality, quantity, its timing and combination is of utmost
importance to healthy life.

.p

ed

ia

Extensive studies by a group of Mumbai doctors have confirmed that


vegetarianism offers protection from coronary diseases. It prevents and helps
management of most of the gasko-intestinal diseass and is suitable for
diabetics. Nephrologists use this diet as a major pat of their therapeutics. A
vegetarian diet is more useful in the treatuent of liver disorders including the
last stage of liver failure when the dietary intake of fat is to be reduced.
Vegetarians tend to have lower blood pressure. I^acto-vegetarian diets with their
high fibre content, low acid and high minerals and vitamins prevent and to a
certain extent relieve the pain felt with the progression of arthritis.
It is no wonder then that millions of people in the USA, IJK, Germany, France,
Italy and other countries have adopted a vegetarian diet.
