Hi Jamie,



If you know of any inaccuracies on the famous veg section, please send details to us directly. We depend on users to keep this information updated. Note that we do require sources. Your comment about Buddha is interesting, never heard that before. Maybe because there are many translations/interpretations. However, it's clear to anyone who reads anything said by Buddha that he did not eat pork, at least not knowingly.

In researching I found this in Wikipedia: "...the Buddha ate his last meal, which he had received as an offering from a blacksmith named Cunda. Falling violently ill, Buddha instructed his attendant Ānanda to convince Cunda that the meal eaten at his place had nothing to do with his passing and that his meal would be a source of the greatest merit as it provided the last meal for a Buddha.[25] Mettanando and von HinĂ¼ber argue that the Buddha died of mesenteric infarction, a symptom of old age, rather than food poisoning."
