Hello, my name is Mason and I am a Junior in High School. I got interested in Vegetarianism after watching movies about the horrid conditions that our animals go through from plain to plate in my Environmental Science class. I didn't actually decide to become a vegetarian until we watched a movie that said that more than 60% of all swine that is sent to the slaughterhouse is infected with Pneumonia; that broke the final resistance to becoming a vegetarian.
So now I've been a vegetarian for little over a month now, and I haven't run into any health problems thus far.
I do expect my stay here to be fun, as most people on here seem very polite!
