Positive or Negative Veg*n?

John Davis, International Vegetarian Union manager, highlights the very important task of being a positive rather than a negative vegetarian in the way we depict our diet. He suggests focusing on the benefits of a plant-based diet instead of focusing on the fact we do not eat meat. He refers to examples such us: I am not 'non-Asian', I am European; I am not a 'non-smoker', I am someone who demands the right to breathe clean air; and - and I am not a 'non-meat-eater', I am someone who chooses plant foods, which is what 'vegetarian' originally meant.

It is very important to emphasize on the wonderful benefits of vegetarianism for all of God's Creation, instead of focusing on what we decide not to eat. This way, people might feel more attracted to our choice of diet and see it as what really is: a path to reconciling God's creatures while restoring our health and God's Earth.
