ABSTRACT

To the Editor.—  My wife, a school teacher, has 14 students in her class who are vegetarians. From my own personal experience, a person who is a vegetarian can be very healthy, as I have lived without meat all my life (28 years). Both my parents stopped the use of meat by their own choice, my mother in the 1920s and my father in the early 1940s.Currently, under my guidance as Health Education Director at the New England Memorial Hospital, the department has sponsored several classes in meatless cooking, with a total of over 175 families represented. The class is taught how to cook a nutritious, balanced meal for the family without the use of meats.With the meat boycott and rising prices, there will be a greater interest in vegetarian diets on the part of the public and more responsibility for us to meet this need.
