Vegetarianism is a dietary choice that widely accepted, though not widely practiced. Vegetarians eat vegetables, fruits and grains; instead of eating meat. There are several categories of vegetarianism. One of them is vegans, in addition to avoiding meat they also don’t eat any products that come from animals such as milk, cheese or honey. Also there are pescatarians who eat seafood but no other meat; and pollotarians, who eat poultry but no other meat.
A poll by the Vegetarian Research Group conducted by Harris Poll shows, “about 3.3% of the US adult population and 4% of the US youth population, do not eat meat (including poultry and seafood)” (qtd. in “Background”). This then leaves more than ninety-five percent of the US population as people who—indulge in meat.

Even though many individuals are partially adapted to using dairy as a food source, by being able to process lactose even after infanthood, there are still people in many parts of the world that are lactose intolerant and there are other possibly substances in milk such as possibly immune-reaction causing proteins, hormones from the animals or even artificial growth hormones as well as antibiotics. The milk products that can usually be bought in supermarkets and which are consumed by the majority of the population are made from pasteurised milk and have many disadvantages in contrast to raw milk products. Pasteurised milk is heated to kill off bacteria, make it last longer, but also reduces the amount of vitamins and minerals in milk. Moreover, proteins are desaturated which makes them harder to digest for the body and which makes them more likely to cause immune reactions.
