Suggestion the most powerful-and concern-that already embedded in the minds of people is that t ubuh will limp if not eating meat. It seemed to deny the fact that daginglah cause many diseases that lower the body's health.
"It's very much exposure from official organizations such as the United Nations (UN), and exposure from medical experts that essentially explains the dangers of eating meat," said Prasasto Satwiko, Coordinator of Technology Center for Energy Studies University of Atma Jaya Yogyakarta (UAJY), Tuesday ( 7 / 10).
But he added, information about the meat is not dangerous to society. If man can think clearly, judging by the impact, eating meat is unnecessary. However, the suggestion that put the meat as a meal is important, difficult to change.
Of course, if people suddenly vegetarian, her body feels less powerful, strange, and the brain as less able to think. "But it's like the state of smokers who find it odd that suddenly stop smoking. That is, it's just a suggestion," said Prasasto, a professor who is also Professor in the Faculty of Engineering UAJY this.
In other words, although the meat is not classified as dangerous additives, but the psychological effect of (addictive) is the real exposure. Unfortunately, these conditions seemed to be ignored.
Information about vegetarian still accepted fragmentary, yet in the system. Vegetarian lifestyle are considered only for the sake of health or a particular religious doctrine. And more than that, global warming, environmental destruction, until the extinction of animals, many stemming from the meat, including fish. Related to global warming for instance, reflected from borosnya energy to produce a piece of meat.
The myth that vegetarianism makes people stupid, is also not true. Many important people who changed the world and they are vegetarian, such as Albert Einstein, Socrates, Plato, Leonardo da Vinci, Charles Darwin, to RA Kartini, Prasasto said.
Indra (27), private sector employees in Yogyakarta argues, it is difficult for vegetarians. Very difficult to get rid of the meat from the menu on the plate. It was difficult to find food stalls that provide only vegetables. "Culture is culture of eating meat," he said.
Vegetarianism is still seen Indra limited in order to maintain health. I do not know the relationship vegetarian with global warming. "But I believe that it bergetarian both in terms of anything," he said.
