The effect of vegetarianism on health is an ambiguous question. The choice in favor of vegetarianism causes much controversy among physicians and the public. To the abandonment of the meat one often come through yoga practice, the others become vegetarians being impressed by the meat production process.
The greatest controversy in vegetarianism are children: doctors repeat of that this has a negative impact on the physical and mental development of the child. But no matter what we said – these people have made their choice, and solemnly or humbly reported it to the public.
The great musician of the Beatles George Harrison became a vegetarian at the age of 26 years. That was because in his life happened several events that have brought him to the Hindu culture and overlook.
During the filming on the Bahamas one gave him a book about Hinduism, and he became interested in a new outlook on life. After some time, George Harrison took Hinduism and all of its rules. For this reason, vegetarianism in his life was not a fashionable step or a passing fad.
In 1968, Harrison became a vegetarian and remained so until his death.
Since the mid-nineties, George Harrison struggled with serious illness. In 1997, he was removed a cancerous tumor of the larynx and lung, and in May 2001 he was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor that could not be operated.
