I need to know advantages, and disadvanteges with being a vegitarian!

I am thinking on becoming vegitarian, this is not just a random thought, I have been thinking about it for 3 years!

I will be turning 11 in a few weeks, so I dont know if I am too young, and I know that alot of protine and iron is in meat, and I was wondering if there is protine and iron in some grains, or vegitables, I have been researching, and I know that my mum and brother will suport me, along with my father.

Any help is welcomed!

THANKYOU!

Look at how the animals are treated that we eat. Chickens, cows, it's very inhuman the way we treat them and our complete and total neglect. We're awful.

I can so tell were you are coming from, I have seen animal cruelity in so many countries, I have seen what they do to the animal we eat, anxiety and fear fills them, and I seriously cried once because they were SO nhorrible, that is why I don't want to put something in my body, that has been tortured!

remember tht this is a big decision!

But there are many disadvantages, equal amount of advantages And i guess that giving up meat forever might be hard, but actually you are saving animals from being slaughtered so i think you should go 4 it!

I live on meat (though i only eat it if I know it was cut right) so to me there are disadvantages!

I posted a question like this and I'll just tell you what the answers to mine said. Ok so there's this stuff called Quorn which is vegetarian meat. Also fruit and vegetables, as we all know, are very good for you. Nuts also contain a lot of protein so you can eat them. Hope this helped!
fleur22045
I have heard of quorn, but I'm not eating it if it is not healthy, is it, or not, they just advertise it on TV, not a lot of health details

You re not too young. I became a vegetarian when I was 3, and it was my own choice. You can totally get all of the protein you need from vegetables, grains, fruits an nuts. I completely support anybody who wants to become a vegetarian, and I think the you should totally become one.
I am a vegan. ;3
sisaloofafump
i know! I'm a vegetarian and 1. I never get cavities (Probably cause i don't like candy) 2. I know know how to ignore people teasing me a bout being vegetarian! Any way, Jafeatherlover is right and it's worth it!

Thank you so much, it is great to know someone who hasn't eaten meat since three!
But I was just wondering if you do a lot of sports because I do a lot for fun and competitive, and I need to know whether I'll be too slow or weak for any of them.

its great you want to become a vegetarian, but you are a little young, and a lack of meat can make you not get your Peirod, therefore stopping your chances of having children
fleur22045
im 14 now and im perioding well and swell, anyways, ive been vegetarian for two years now, I agree that meat supplies a lot of necessary things our bodies need, but all is good if u replace it with other products, like iron is easily gained from spinach, and protein is gained from pulses
