If a little brusque manner, the situation may reach a quarrel. Recall that the proponents of vegetable diet is sometimes not friendly advocate widespread belief "do not eat animals killed."
A lot of people come to the vegetarian lifestyle on religious and ethical reasons.
Other followers of this "type" power set goals of improving character: less carcinogens and cholesterol - more likely to live happily and long.
It is worth noting that the idea to abandon animal food - is as old as our earth-mother.
