Did you make a "beer-reviewed" study of the phenomenon? Razz

The main thing that would cut down on unnecessary killing (and abuse) of animals would be for more people to become vegetarians (not necessarily vegans - who I think will always be a fringe segment)

If a non-abusive dairy industry could be established that protected cows (and didn't kill them) there could still be a leather industry utilizing the hides of cows that died naturally.

In Vedic culture, cows are considered to be like gentle mothers, who willingly provide their milk to humans because they're in the mode of goodness.

Unnecessary killing of cows gives rise to heavy karmic reactions - whether one knows it or not.

This useful link further explains why cow killing is so bad ...

I did have a source on them for a while, but they were straight off the farm, not via a shop.

This is required reading when you're picking out eggs. What looks like free range might actually mean fertilized!

One of my biggest reasons for being a vegetarian has to do with the way that the meat industry treats human beings. Check this out: http://www.democracynow.org/2008/8/20/iowa_town_turned_into_open_air

Here's an article on "vegetarian restaurants" that appeared recently in the Korean Times ["Hater Depot" originally posted it in the "Seoul Veggie Group's" facebook site]:

By Michael Ha
Staff Reporter


Barbeque dishes like bulgogi and galbi are perhaps two of the best-known Korean foods around the world. But in Korea, there are also numerous offerings of non-meat dishes for health-conscious vegetarians. Here are a few of the leading vegetarian restaurants in Seoul that are definitely worth a visit:

Temple Foods in Modern Setting

``Chaegeundam" is one of the best places to enjoy vegetarian meals usually offered at Buddhist temples. The restaurant, located near Samseong Station, is run by top Korean chefs who also manage a restaurant specializing in traditional palace foods, according to the Korea Tourism Organization. The restaurant offers a vegetarian full-course meal and temple foods using organic vegetables. Visit www.chaegundaam.com for further details.

Another place worth a visit is ``Country Life Health Cafeteria.'' This restaurant offers more than 30 different vegetarian dishes and fresh vegetable wraps. Included on the menu are steamed brown rice, seaweed soup, potato pie, bean and brown rice cakes, pumpkin soup, corn bread, whole wheat bread, and salads. It's located in Seoul (Subway Line 3, Sinsa Station).

A 40-Dish Non-meat Buffet

The SM Vegetarian buffet, first opened in 1996, offers a wide-ranging selection of vegetarian dishes. Meat substitutes, such as wheat or beans and vegetarian ham are especially popular with newly turned vegetarians who recently enjoyed meat. Check www.smvege.co.kr for more information.

Another great vegetarian buffet restaurant is Hangwachae. It offers a vegetarian buffet with fresh organic vegetable dishes. Soup, rice, and Korean pancakes are offered as the basic menu at the restaurant and are also included in the buffet. The rice served is made with 20 different Asian herbs, while the buffet menu offers some 30 different dishes.

To substitute meat protein, the restaurant uses homemade tofu, and nut jellies. One of Hangwachae's most famous dishes, according to the Korea Tourism Organization, is the green salad served with ``cheonggukjang" thick soybean paste.

Even Kimchi is prepared specifically for vegetarians. Generally, Koreans add pickled salted fish to the spicy side dish to enhance the flavor.

At this restaurant, though, chefs have come up with an inventive alternative: Kimchi flavored with fruits and fruit sauce. The restaurant, one of the top picks of the Korea Tourism Organization, is located in Jonggak, in central Seoul. (Subway Line No.1 Jonggak Station. )

For Vegetarians ``Sosim"

The restaurant offers traditional Korean foods using only vegetables. Traditional dishes including ``jeon," or Korean pancakes, are prepared without the original ingredient of eggs, but are instead prepared with gardenia seeds.

The main course offers 16 different side dishes, soup, and rice, with the soups made with perilla seeds. A single dish of vegetable ``bibimbap,'' a rice bowl with assorted ingredients mixed in, is also available. (Subway Line No.3 Anguk)

Non-meat Chinese Foods

For those who love Chinese food but want to stick to their vegetarian diet, Shindongyang Chinese Restaurant in Yeoido, Seoul, offers Korea-Chinese cuisines without seafood or meat.

The restaurant has large dining halls, and offers a separate vegetarian course meal. The place has a long history: it has been operated by three generations of Chinese emigrants. The restaurant serves mainly Peking cuisines, with additional cuisines from Szechuan province and Taiwan.

The restaurant offers single-serve vegetarian dishes as well as a vegetarian course.

The vegetarian dishes use ingredients including asparagus, mushrooms, green peppers as well as tofu and processed soy prepared in the traditional Chinese fashion. (Yeoido, Seoul, Subway Line No.5)

Here's the Fall 2008 Veggie Club schedule sent out by "kermo" (who doesn't seem to post here much anymore, but you could try PMing her to get on the club mailing list or to make suggestions...)

Sunday, September 7th, 2:00 pm
Gamrodang
Tel: 02-3210-3397
Budget: 20,000 to 40,000 won
Popular menu: 23,000-98,000 won formal courses
To get there: follow the map attached. It's a 20 minute walk from Anguk Station, exit 1.

Saturday, September 20th, 5:00 pm
Potluck picnic dinner at Yongsan Park!
Same beautiful site. Interesting new time!

At Ichon (이촌 ) station, go out Exit 2. For some reason, it's not very well-marked. Just follow the signs for Exit 1, and Exit 2 is next to it. You'll find yourself walking toward the National Museum of Korea. Yongsan Park is right next to it.

To get to our picnic spot, approach the National Museum and walk to the right around the "reflecting pond." Keep going toward the "Reflecting Pond Cafe" until you see a small path veering off to the right, toward a grove with two ancient Buddha statues.

Please bring salad/dessert/main dish/drinks and a candle (the sun sets at 6:30!)


Sunday, October 5th, 6:30
Potluck with Cheryl's Yoga Studio
Location and directions TBA Smile


Saturday, October 18th, 2:00 pm
ShinDongyang
According to Galbijim wiki:

Shindongyang (신동양, 新東陽) is a Chinese restaurant in Yeouido which is very vegetarian-friendly; though the regular meat-and-seafood menu is larger, you may also request to see the vegetarian menu, which has about 60 dishes, soups, and appetizers and three course menus. The vegetarian dishes feature plenty of faux meat versions of Koreanized Chinese dishes like tangsuyuk and jjajangmyeon, as well as more traditional fare. Whether vegetarian or not, prices are about the same -- main dishes come in two sizes, all around 10 to 15,000 won, with the cheapest just 4,500 and the most expensive going up to 50,000; appetizers are mostly around 6,000. The course menus run from 30,000 to 70,000 and feature up to ten dishes.

It's a fairly large place, with an extra dining hall, and has been run by Chinese immigrants for three generations running. Korea, Mandarin, and English are spoken; the main menu features all three languages but the vegetarian menu has no English, though they will assist you. To get there, go out Yeouido Station exit 5; it will be on the top floor of the first building on your right
.
