WQJ tried vegetarianism for nine years and gave it up because he found it
"injurious". He said it wasn't suited for Westerners. He said eating fish was
OK, describing them as "floating vegetables". He said that "the stomach does
not digest vegetables, it is for meat; the teeth are for tearing and grinding
meat". He said he knew many physicians in the TS who agreed with him and that
some of them insisted that vegetarianism was wrong under any circumstances.
"The kingdom of heaven is not gained by eating meat or by refraining from it",
he said further.
Apparently, he is at odds with HPB on this issue.
LONG LIVE THE BIG MAC !!!!
