I stopped eating red meat after reading 'Beyond Beef' , a book I thoroughly
recommend (can't think of the author though), and before I became a
practising buddhist. I still love the taste of meat and If it could be
grown without killing an animal I would eat it (although I must say
sometimes now, the site of a bloody steak makes my stomach turn over). But
the Hindus have a word - 'ojas' that implies a spirit of nutrition in fresh
natural foods - and I'm more concerned over whether artifical meat would
contain 'ojas'.
