The second option means an origin of the term "vegetarian" (vegetarian) from Greek "vegetas", that is "full of breath and life". This option which cornerstone health of a human body is. For the first time to use the term "vegetarianism" concerning itself and the vital principles there were founders of the British vegetarian society who took as a basis Latin derivative of "vegetarius" - "vegetus", meaning "strong, vigorous, healthy, fresh" and entered into use the expression of "homo vegetus" designating the personality developed spiritually and physically.

Vegetarianism - the negative moments
The strict vegetarianism conceals in itself a set of reefs. So at its observance the human body does not receive (or receives less) vitamin D, necessary for growth and development of amino acid. If not pharmacological products, the diseases extended among vegetariayets would be: anemia, the increased fragility of bones, nervous and mental diseases, decrease in sexual function.
