Vegetarianism. Pros and cons of vegetarianism
Immediately note vegetarianism  (which originated from lats vegetarians is the plant) - it is generally some kind of general name for special food systems that exclude or severely restrict the consumption of precise products of animal origin and always based on products of exclusively plant origin. But the origins of vegetarianism go back to incredibly distant antiquity.


Different types of vegetarianism:

  1. Type 1 - veganism is a strict vegetarianism, in which absolutely any kind of meat of any animals, as well as birds, fish, and even seafood, and also eggs, milk and all dairy products, and in some cases even natural honey ;
  2. Type 2 lactovegetarians is already dairy vegetative vegetarianism, it must be said that in the diet it is perfectly permissible to consume milk and a wide variety of dairy products, sour cream oil, etc .;
  3. Type 3 Lacto -vegetarianism is milky-egg-vegetative vegetarianism when all vegetable food is combined with dairy products, as well as eggs of various domestic birds.

The most strict vegetarians are usually called vegan or even Old Vegetarians. In addition, in our time there are even mladovegetariants or some ovolactovegetarians. It should immediately be noted that absolutely all types of vegetarianism completely admit the heat culinary processing of various foods, and thus fundamentally simply radically different from many supporters of Vitarianism - a special teaching about the use of only raw vegetarian food.

Usual nutrition with vegetarianism

So directly with vegetarianism a person always uses about 300 kinds of various vegetables, root crops, as well as about 600 kinds of various fruits and about 200 kinds of various nuts. Direct sources of protein are of course nuts, and legumes (especially soy, lentils, as well as beans, and peas), in addition, and spinach, as well as cauliflower, kohlrabi and even wheat. The direct sources of fat are, first of all, vegetable oils - olive, sunflower, and flaxseed oil, as well as hempseed, mustard, bean, coconut, nut, corn, almond, poppy, cotton and many others.

It is also about vegetarianism that the following proportions are recommended in daily diet:

  • About 25% - is allocated to raw deciduous and also to root vegetables, and by season directly in the form of a variety of salads;
  • Approximately 25% are raw and, of course, fresh fruit, or, say, well soaked before dried;
  • About 25% - is allocated for green and root vegetables, necessarily cooked on fire;
  • In addition, 10% are proteins (the most diverse nuts, cottage cheese, and any fermented milk products);
  • Almost 10% are different carbohydrates (there are absolutely all kinds of cereals and bread products, as well as sugar);
  • And only 5% - is allocated for fats (this and butter, and margarine, and, of course, all vegetable fats).


The use of any condiments and even vinegar is completely excluded.

But for more complete and correct provision of the organism's needs in proteins, it is strongly recommended to combine just the following products:

  • Firstly, it is rice combined with legumes or simply with sesame seeds;
  • Further combine wheat with beans, as well as peanuts, sesame and, if desired, with soybean;
  • Beans are also perfectly combined with corn or simply with wheat;
  • But the usual soybean is perfectly combined with rice or with wheat, it is the very healthy combination with sesame or peanuts;
  • Further combine sesame with beans, as well as with peanuts and with any soy, as well as a combination with soy and wheat;
  • And the last combination is peanuts with sunflower seeds.


WHO's official attitude towards vegetarianism

Naturally, the attitude towards vegetarianism is extremely ambiguous even among the most diverse specialists. According to some expert consultations of WHO (it was in 1989), the vegetarian diet itself was considered quite adequate. Other serious studies under the auspices of the same WHO (Young, Pellet, in 1990) confirm that it is essential that the same protein of animal origin is present in the diet (which is approximately 30% in general from the total protein quota ).

The real damage to vegetarianism

Unequivocally it will be possible to assert that a rather long application of the most rigid orthodox vegetarianism or veganism leads to a rather sharp deficit of calcium, iron, zinc, as well as vitamins А1, В2, and В12, as well as D, of all essential amino acids. And since they are simply absent altogether in plant foods or are there, in an absolutely inadequate quantity, this style of nutrition cannot be called correct. Although the very content of calcium, copper, iron, and also zinc in the diets of the vegan themselves can be quite sufficient, their assimilation from plant products is extremely low.

And even in completely healthy people who have completely excluded from their daily diet all products of animal origin, hypovitaminosis, dysbiosis and even absolute protein deficiency can often develop. And, consequently, such strict vegetarianism cannot be considered rational and proper nutrition for children, as well as for adolescents, for example, for all pregnant women, and, of course, nursing mothers, and for many athletes.

Similarly, vegetarianism cannot in any way provide an increased need for easily digestible calcium in some women in the postmenopausal period and in all elderly people who have an extremely high risk of developing osteoporosis.

Is vegetarianism possible?

I must say that it is lactovegetarians, and even more so lactovegetarians never cause such harsh objections as veganism. It can very well be recommended for a number of serious diseases (of course, usually in the form of certain days of rest or just short courses):

  • This and hypertensive disease;
  • And a certain circulatory insufficiency;
  • And also atherosclerosis;
  • With gout;
  • Of course obesity;
  • And in addition to urolithiasis, even with urticaria;
  • Naturally and pyelonephritis;
  • And as the chronic renal failure;
  • In addition, acute hepatitis or even cirrhosis of the liver (however, only plant products, with the minimum number of proteins and also fats).


It should be noted that modern dietology, of course, recognizing the very large and incredibly serious importance of plant foods, still rejects the assertion of ardent supporters of veganism about the real possibility of treating the vast majority of diseases only with different plant products.
