Whether therefore, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.
1 Corinthians 10:31 NKJV
When God created the world, He put in place everything essential to sustain life and for the happiness of mankind. This included God’s original diet that was best for them – fruits, grains, nuts and seeds and the Tree of Life. After sin God removed their access to the Tree of Life and in its’ place He added to their diet – vegetables.

Today, disease is prevalent with the laxness in the meat industry, to meet the demand for animal products. Many people have decided to avoid animal products all together. Science is more and more coming out with evidence to support this decision.
