GO VEG(AN), PART I: THE "OTHER" REASON TO GO VEGETARIAN
The Film Forks over Knives opens Friday in Chicago
The first reason to go veg (from a yoga perspective) is compassion. The foundational precept of yoga is Ahimsa, or not harming any living being in word, thought and deed.
The other reason to go veg. is for health. (Which seems selfish but in fact is a form of self-compassion, or non-harming of one's own body).
The feature film Forks Over Knives examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting our present menu of animal-based and processed foods.
