About 4% of China is vegetarian. Since China has a population of , that is roughly 1,325,639,982 (1.3 billion), that is roughly 53,025,600 (53 million). But there are many unknown monks (Buddhist and Shaolin) who live in isolation, whom are also vegetarians, that percentage could be higher.

There are many kinds of vegetarians. Some eat eggs and dairy products. Those types of vegetarians are known as "Ovo-Lacto Vegetarians." There are also vegetarians, known as vegans, who eat no animal products, whatsoever, including eggs, dairy, and honey. Many vegetarians give up eggs because of the known suffering that exists within the egg industry, and some vegetarians give up eggs for health reasons.

While there are some Hindus who are not vegetarians, most of them are. One reason for so many being vegetarians are a belief in nonviolence. Another is the belief that non vegetarian food is bad for the mind and hinders spiritual development.
