Vegetarians

I'm one. I had a class in med school where they talked much of the connection between eating meat and various diseases. Vegetarians have less diabetes; fewer cancers of the colon, liver, breast, and bladder; fewer strokes and heart attacks; less risk of diabetes; and less hypertension and circulatory disorders of all kinds. Depending on what group you fit into and how strict you are, they live 5-8 years longer than meat eaters and are healthier whilst they are alive. I lost my enthusiasm for eating meat and finally quit it altogether over about a 5 year period. I'd look at a hamburger or steak and just didn't have any interest to put it into my body. Good for you. steve.

that also depends on what type/grade of meat you eat... I've cut back greatly on my meat eating and I eat chicken instead most of the time... I don't think I could live without meat, but as long as it's done in moderation, it won't have as bad an effect on your life, if at all. Unfortunately, America is all about going overboard with everything. Eating Mickey D's everyday and getting HUGE because of it... or going all-out vegetarian/vegan.... or being a total drunk, versus not drinking at all, even though it's been proven that a glass of wine or two every day is actually good for you. moderation, moderation, moderation... if everyone ate meat in moderation, our meat consumption would drop drastically... but hey... at the end of the day, it's the blind-eye mentality that is this country's Achilles heel.

Vegetarian; Old Indian word meaning lousy hunter!

The government cannot give you anything without first taking it from someone else.

It's not that eating meat is a bad thing, but at least let the animals go humanely is all I'm saying. The suffering part has really got to go.

agreed... I definitely don't agree on how these things are slaughtered... you should see how they slaughter chickens. probably not as bad as this, but pretty bad, nonetheless... also, different slaughterhouses have different methods of slaughtering their cattle. Some hold its head into place and simply use a bullet right in the noggin... lights out instantly.

but many would argue that killing animals at all is inhumane... the problem I see with that is, animals die all the time in violent ways that don't involve human interaction... it's simply the way of life... and although we can survive by eating vegetables only, there's a reason why we were all born with both molars and incisors...

very true. I'm not sure if I'd be happy without some red meat. Not a ton, but I like it though.

The solution is to get your meat from a reputable local butcher. It'll be of a better standard that the stuff you get at a supermarket, local, you can ask and check for yourself about slaughter practices, and yeah, it'll cost you a little bit more than it does at the supermarket, but if you're payling less than $8/$9 on a chicken, something is wrong somewhere along the line. It costs more than that to raise a decent, free - range, humanely treated chicken. If it costs a bit more you'll eat it a little less, and maybe make for effort in your preparation (healthier, maybe?).

It's the way forward, I tell you

Without meat eaters there would be no animals!
Open your mouth and look at your teeth in the mirror. If you are human you are an omnivor.

I went to a slaughter house once and they use a pneumatic device that popped a rod into the cow's head. The cow just dropped dead, it was amazing actually. The whole slaughter house was very clean, nothing about the place was dirty or questionable in any way. Going through that place just made me hungry! I love eatin critters. Deer hunting has been some good times for me, from the hunt to the table it's all good.

There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."

Ok we will strand Trexrookie, Steve, and Nick on a deserted island/mountain and test their Vegan ideals. Fact is humans need like what 3000 calories a day (right??)

Roots and grass isnt going to cut it for long, and when the natural human instinct kicks in..Thas when it becomes real!

One human leg could be a feast for the remaining 2 survivors!

who will take one for team?

Yep, we're all Omnivors.

Some of us just choose not to be.

I have considered becoming a vegetarian from time-to-time. For a while I didn't eat meat during the week at all, but when I would on the weekend, I felt a sense of energy like my body was getting something it needed. Plus meat is so darn good! I don't eat much red meat. Mostly chicken or fish, sometimes pork but I couldn't go without it for good.

Wow! I've been to Postville and knew there was a slaughterhouse there, but had no idea that's how it was run. That's just plain wrong. I'm no PETA freak, but that's pretty sick that they are suffering so much.

FDA's position is that the U.S. fruit and vegetable supply does not contain excessive pesticide residues and that the benefits of eating fresh produce far exceeds any risk from residues
buyer beware...there is a risk after all.

I never said anything about being a vegetarian... I just said eat meat in moderation. It's no big secret that most Americans eat way more calories than they actually need. Like I've said in my past posts, MODERATION.
