level 1

A short column of many articles in recent weeks that introduce the concept of vegetarianism to Chinese readers.

吃惯了大肉大鱼,现在吃素[1]的人越来越多。对素食,很多人还有一定的偏见[2]。我们的生活水平越来越高,鸡鸭鱼肉[3]几乎成为家常便饭[4],但过多的食用大鱼大肉,对我们的身体健康是不利的。人们对健康和食品安全[5]的关注兴起了素食风。

素食,不仅是饮食问题,也是一种文化和观念。以前生活条件不好的时候,人们都希望能吃上鱼肉。现在吃素食不仅是一种时尚[6],更多的人是从健康的角度考虑。素食主义[7]者正在逐渐走入我们的视野[8]。

More and more people who have been used to eat large portions of meat and fish are now becoming vegetarians. Some people might have strong prejudice about vegetarianism. As the level of life is improving, all kinds of meat are practically becoming home-style food, yet excessive edible meat and fish are not healthy. People's growing attention to healthy and food safety has given rise to the wind of vegetarianism.

Vegetarianism is not only an issue of food and drinks but is also a cultural conception. In the past, when life conditions were not good, people hoped to be able to consume meat. Nowadays vegetarianism is not only a fashion as many people consider it on the ground of health. Vegetarianism is gradually entering our field of vision.
