Consumption

In sociology, consumption as central to everyday life, identity and social order.

In economics, the purchase of goods and services constitutes consumption, particularly by individual consumers.

In ecology, tertiary consumers (e.g humans), are capable of feeding on secondary consumers (carnivores and omnivores) and primary consumers (herbivores).

Leo Tolstoy

A man can live and be healthy without killing animals for food; therefore, if he eats meat, he participates in taking animal life merely for the sake of his appetite. And to act so is immoral. 

Phytonutrients

Plant foods contain thousands of natural chemicals, which are called phytonutrients or phytochemicals ("phyto" means "plant"). These chemicals help protect plants from germs, fungi, bugs, and other threats. Phytonutrients are not essential, but they may help prevent disease.

More than 25,000 phytochemicals are found in plant foods, and six important phytonutrients are: 

  • Carotenoids
  • Ellagic acid
  • Flavonoids
  • Resveratrol
  • Glucosinolates
  • Phytoestrogens
