        consumer.  Meat-eating contributes to a mentality of violence,
        for with the chemically complex meat ingested, one absorbs the
        slaughtered creature's fear, pain and terror.  These qualities
        are nourished within the meat-eater, perpetuating the cycle of
        cruelty and confusion.  When the individual's consciousness
        lifts and expands, he will abhor violence and not be able to
        even digest the meat, fish, fowl and eggs he was formerly
        consuming.  India's greatest saints have confirmed that one
        cannot eat meat and live a peaceful, harmonious life.  Man's
        appetite for meat inflicts devastating harm on the earth itself,
        stripping its precious forests to make way for pastures.  The

        foods, locally grown without insecticides or chemical
        fertilizers are preferred.  A vegetarian diet does not include
        meat, fish, fowl or eggs.  For good health, even certain
        vegetarian foods are minimized: frozen and canned foods, highly
        processed foods, such as white rice, white sugar and white
        flour; and "junk" foods and beverages-those with abundant
        chemical additives, such as artificial sweeteners, colorings,
        flavorings and preservatives.
