The Great Food Debate

Veg or Non Veg?

Does it matter?

Well, it does. Or is made to matter.

Both sides try to convert each other. Both sing their team's praises. Both point out the benefits of each diet plan. Then you find a few religious views tossed in. Then a pile of cultural norms. A dash of regional and societal norms are added to. An viola - a few are converted on each scale.

We people do tend to go on extremes. Like does it matter if the toothpaste isn't vegetarian? Though one must accommodate people's religious views. However, taking it as a matter of purely individual choice; what is all the hype about? It's like choosing a different football team. Either way at the end of the day, both sides are eating food which eventually leads to the nourishment of the human body. Since, we can eat both types of food we have a choice. Imagine a goat eating chicken. The goat can't and thus, is stuck with whatever it eats (I don't recall at this moment all the food products it eats nor am I interested in remembering).

Live and let live. Eat and let it. To each his own taste.
