I don't feel that whether the animals called humans were "built" or not built to eat meat is most important.

 

Humans were not built to be resistant to the rubeola virus.

But humans developed a vaccine and measles was almost eradicated.

Same with several other diseases.

 

Humans have a design flaw and hernias are common.

We were not built to repair the tear once there is a hernia, but humans have come up with a common operation to do this.

 

Humans now have numerous foods readily available that provide protein without eating dead animals. And delicious dishes can be prepared from them.

 

For those saying to speak of this is "boring", it is "self righteous" and "preaching" and "nutters",  these are the same things said of those who were early into the battle of banning cigarettes, and those who early on began warning of climate change, those who were in favor of the US government demanding seat belts in all vehicles and ticketing for not wearing them, and numerous other social issues to protect and improve society.

 

For me, those words translated simply mean "I cannot justify my stance, so go away and don't try to make me change my ways, reflect on my behavior,  and become socially conscious."

 

 

Eating dead animals or not is a health and a moral issue.

It is possible to eat a healthy, well balanced, nutritional diet without meat.

 

Raising animals for slaughter is immoral.

I have yet in this thread to read a comment even attempting to make a moral argument justifying this.

 

“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”
Mahatma Gandhi

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Right i disagree we are build to eat meat we can chose not to or chose to eat it I chose to eat it. Overpopulation is a far worse problem. I have not contributed to that (no kids)  i bet most vegetarians have. Hypocrites that is what they are.

"Hypocrites that is what they are."  really?  I have no kids, you have no right to hijack that. Overpopulation is a terrible issue for humanity, obviously, but you deflect from the post topic.

All of the above could be easily gotted from other sources without the fructose.

 

      Thanks for posting that.  Very interesting information and some clues for me as to why I have high uric acid and some fatty liver deposits!  Will bring home a grocery bag of veggies this week not a grocery bag of fruit.

People should reduce their meat intake, it's not really healthy for you. But no need to become a 100% vegetarian I think. 


But the key here is balance. You need proteins, and plenty of vitamins and minerals so your body will stay in good shape until the end of your life. 

I eat oat meals, different types of fruits , nuts like brazil nuts, plenty of boiled eggs, salmon, veggies, blueberries. The only meat I eat are chicken and fish. 
But remember the proteins, a good source is kidney beans. Just mix it in salads daily and you  can forget about red meat.

Careful the vegetarians will be out for blood after this post. (how Ironic). I don't get why people can't just accept others choices and let them be. 

 

I agree 100% too much meat is not a good thing but 100% vegetarian is usually not a good thing either.  Just eat healthy some meat actually completes all the stuff you need for your body. I usually don't go overboard. 200 grams uncooked a day, some days nothing.

No you became annoying Bob, let people do as they want. Its normal to eat meat your a minority stop preaching. Its boring. Vegans who have kids are worse then meat eaters who don't. Far more strain on the enviroment (the thing you and other vegans are using to force people to see it their way)

 

Is it that hard to accept that people eat meat and some don't. Its a personal choice, your kinda like those Muslims that like to kill non believers. Live and let live. 

Nah you're a bully and endorse cruelty to animals without a care in the world. Stop harassing me I already said stop yet you continue if there is a voice to be heard for animals who cannot defend themselves I will speak up despite you trying to repress freedom of speech.

Because your argument is unrefined and you can't "get" that by eating meat animals go through tremendous suffering and  abuse. 

Do What Thou Wilt as long as it HARMS NONE.

You just living harms enough animals.. you encroach on their habitat. (just like all humans do) You have enough blood on your hands. So stop taking the moral high ground.

 

Accept that people have other views be more open minded it would do you good. 

 

You reply I wont stop.. easy.

Peanuts are fattening. Psyllium should be consumed 1 or 2 teaspoons with a pint of water. The water is essential.  Psyllium can be bought cheaply under the name Sat Isgbol at India shops. Eggs are not vegetarian but are a perfect food source.  

Eggs are vegetarian - since they are not animal flesh - but not vegan.

 

Peanuts are legumes and are not fattening per se - owing to fibre and 'good' fat content that encourages a higher bodily metabolic rate, and provides long-lasting energy.

I eat a lot of roasted (with peanut and/or sunflower oil) unsalted peanuts.

 

One thing I was surprised to find out is that they are credited with causing kidney stones.

This slowed me down for awhile with them and now I'm back to eating them but cutting back (or trying to) on my daily intake.

Also 160 calories/ounce.

 

Have never had stones and don't want them now.

Been a non-meat eater for 50 years since age 25. Hasn't done me any harm - quite the opposite in fact - and I don't miss it. Trouble is, unless the meat is obtained from pasture raised animals, with no hormone additives or 'other' food supplements, IMO, it's not fit for human consumption. 

 

Similarly, a vegetarian or vegan diet is not necessarily free from pesticide residues, albeit 'organic' grown veggies should be more healthy. 

 

I'm also moving away from dairy gradually to a plant-based nutrition diet, including small helpings of fruit. Fortunately, I don't get bored with salads and soup and my palate appreciates the taste. 

 

I don't eat 'wheat products', drink sugar-filled soft drinks, fruit juices, or packaged foods with a high sugar content. Read the labels. Sugar, is toxic, ought to be banned as a food and drink additive, as should non-whole grain wheat products. 

 

All in all, though, everyone's DNA is different, and if you care about good nutrition, your body will tell you what's good and what's bad for you. Read and experiment - because nutrition is NOT an exact science, and I accept what I've listed above could be overturned by new research.
