Vegetarians at Brookhaven

Going meatless more than a choice, it's a lifestyle

With Thanksgiving on the horizon, it would be unimaginable to most Americans to spend the holiday without turkeys on their tables. For some vegetarians at Brookhaven College, it's the way of life and for good reasons.

A growing number of people are choosing to eliminate animal products from their diets. According to the Vegetarian Resource Group, 2.8 percent of Americans may be considered vegetarians, but many more follow some form of vegetarian diets.

At Brookhaven, those who follow or try to adopt vegetarian lifestyles do so for different reasons, but the overwhelming majority seem to associate it with health issues.

"Personally, I am a vegetarian primarily for health reasons," Brookhaven philosophy instructor Dr. Jerrod Scott said he has been a vegetarian for almost four years. "The consumption of meat is directly linked to different forms of health conditions."

Since becoming a vegetarian, while combined with a daily exercise regimen, Dr. Scott has lost 70 pounds and no longer suffers from other common health conditions.

UTA students, faculty and staff can take part of the world of Yoga and Meditation.

Shambu Sharan, UTA Universal Yoga-Meditation Club President started the club to teach free classes to promote physical and mental health.

Sharan said the classes include yogasanas (yoga positions), self-message and relaxation techniques.

He said practicing yoga regularly makes the body flexible, energetic, relaxed, and can help cure physical and psychic diseases through balancing the glandular secretion of hormones.

Sharan said meditation also gives mental awareness, calmness and peacefulness.

“One can achieve happiness and peace of mind through meditation,” he said. “This can be done through the pineal glands, which is a master gland secreting melatonin and serotonin.”

Classes are Wednesdays from 5:30–7 p.m. with varying locations each week.

Class scheduled today will be at the University Center Neches and Pedernales rooms. For information, contact Sharan at 214-315-0869 or
