TOKYO (AFP) – Animal rights activists on Tuesday urged Japanese baseball stadiums to give up their usual fare of hot dogs and fried octopus balls and go vegetarian to fight global warming.

.

Japan’s baseball commissioners announced as the season opened last week that the national pastime would take action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, in particular by speeding up games.

.

But People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals(PETA)

said it would be more effective for concession stands to serve exclusively vegetarian fare.

.

“By selling only vegetarian foods,

your baseball league will become a leader in the fight

against global warming,”

PETA said in a letter to Nippon Professional Baseball

commissioner Yasuchika Negoro.

.

“Because vegetarians are less prone to serious illnesses like heart disease,  diabetes and obesity  than meat-eaters, fans will be happier and healthier while cheering on their favourite team,” it said.

.

A 2006 study by the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation found that the livestock industry contributed more to global warming than all of the world’s transportation.

.

PETA, which is based in the United States, noted that many North American baseball stadiums now offered vegetarian food including burgers made of soy or beans.

.

In other words, there will be no more

eating of octopus balls at baseball

games in Japan.

Are you happy now, PETA?

My guess is no.

  2. Vegetarian meals do not deviate much from a regular diet except for the absence of meat. Skeptics argue that this could mean missing out on essential proteins. But this is hardly true nor correct. All healthy vegetarian recipes are well-balanced. They have the required amounts of essential vitamins, minerals, and protein. Examples of protein choices are legumes, nuts, beans, fish, poultry, dairy, and the popular tofu. Calcium, a mineral often associated with milk, is not missed either. Middle Easterners and native Africans are known to have strong teeth and bones but their diets rarely contain dairy or meat. They get their calcium from vegetables and root crops. So there is no reason you couldn’t get your calcium requirements from vegetarian foods. In terms of nutrition, a vegetarian diet is even superior to diets with meat. There is less fat and bacteria that enter the body which can cause heart diseases and infections. You can watch meat lover bloat and get fat while maintaining your own healthy body.-
