Veg Boost in Korea

Korea sees increase in vegetarianism as foot-and-mouth disease continues to spread.

According to Korea JoongAng Daily, vegetarianism is on the rise in Korea. Plagued by foot-and-mouth disease earlier this year, people’s desire to go veg is growing. Students at the Seoul National University are eating more often at the school’s vegetarian cafeteria and traffic to the Korean Vegetarianism Union website has quadrupled to 15,000 visitors per day since media reports of mass killings of food-and-mouth disease-infected farm animals. “Many people have gone vegetarian after being shocked by scenes of unethical killing of livestock,” says Lee Won Bok, head of the union. Approximately 500,000 Koreans are currently vegetarian, and that number is expected to grow.
