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.
