Humans were not designed to eat meat, we are not cavemen and we can choose now to eat better, and eat with conscious.
We do not have sharp claws, we do not have sharp teeth, most of our teeth are flat, like a cows. A real meat-eaters teeth? Every single one is sharp as razors.
Our intestinal track is longer, better suited for veggies, and our stomach acids offten struggle to break down meat.
Meat-based diets cause more deaths from cancer, than cigarettes yearly.
Meat causes heart disease, diabetes and many forms of cancer. The documentary Forks over knifes showed that most reversed cancers and disease from taking out animal products.
It tastes good? Oh, a rotting veiny pieice of flesh between two soggy buns?
Theres more yummy food lacking in the death/suffering department.
Put down the slimey slab of dead cow, and pick up a veggie burger.
You cant say you love animals, yet pay to have them be slowly tortured in the most violent ways and killed for something useless.
Everything in meat can be easily found elsewhere, we don’t just eat salads, and you wont lose 10 pounds, believe me. If you think that youre ignorant as hell.
I can’t/won’t eat plain food. I’m mexican, I need my spicy filling food.
Vegetarians are not anorexic and dying in the streets.
Take off the blinders. Go vegetarian for a week, see how easy it is, and see how good you feel.
Anon please. <3
I would eat a dog. Not alive and not someone’s pet, but I wouldn’t eat a cow if it was alive and someone’s pet, so…. what?
Hhumans are omnivores. We have canines AND molars. Canines for ripping meat (and hunting, I think…), molars for chewing shit.
I would like to see proof of those health arguments…
Yes, it tastes good. If it is rotting, something is wrong. If there are veins in it, get a new butcher. As for the “two buns” thing, I’m assuming that means hambugers, right? In what situation would a mincer be able to turn meat and, in some cases, bone and cartlidge, into mush, but not veins?
Vegetables die. All animals suffer. I’m missing something, I think. Animal lives are worth more than plant lives because… they’re worse for the environment? No, I kid, it’s the emotions thing obviously. Well, yeah, bad news for you here, DEATH IS INEVITABLE. Any conscientious omnivore eats meat that has suffered less than it would in the wild. Enough said.
No, scratch that last. It’s not all horror stories like you hear in the news, you know. Like, there are places that will only sell meat that has been farm-raised and ethically killed (knocked out and shot is the norm, I believe). Like, what is so horrible about that? That is more or less the nicest death it is possible to have. There’s no incentive for anyone who knows anything about meat to buy meat that’s been raised and killed in these awful situation, because it’s like a dollar less a kilo and the meat ends up tasting like shit.
And what the hell is with the piglet on the plate? That’s just unhygenic. Unless the point is “WOULD YOU CUTE BABY ANIMALS” in which case, FUCK YEAH I WOULD. Give me lamb and venison any day. Heck, I’ve eaten my national emblem. I don’t understand what that piglet represents.
Why am I even having this argument about health?
My doctor actually said to me in clear words “You’re not a vegetarian, are you? In your situation, that is going to make it incredibly difficult for you to stay healthy. You’ll need to be on vitamin supplements and-” at this point I was like “I AM A CARNIVORE”. This is my vegan doctor, who grows all his own food and is like Hippy101. Yes, I could live without meat, but it would not be good for me.
So I mean, yeah, get off your pedestal darl’n. Animals eat animals. Maybe you could devote your time to ensuring that animals are treated ethically, rather than protesting an industry that is not bloody going way.
I don’t need to add much more than that, why do you think Humans have managed to live this long? We as a species are predators, we hunted and killed for food.
This is why the world despises vegetarians, now I personally tend to not point out to them often but this post clearly prove that the OP is an IDIOT, probably protein deficiency caused it!
Lets start from the top!
HUMANS are omnivores, we like the meat, we liiiike the veg, we liiiiiike the fish. OM NOM NOM! covered. I make my conscious choice to eat a balanced diet which (10 out of 10 non-vegetarian doctors recommend) includes meat.
I know it says MOST teeth are flat but it also says we have no sharp teeth, TO THE SOWING ROOM - None of our are flat, but that’s niggley the more important thing to note is the canine teeth we all have. There are sharp and designed for carnivorous activity! So we can rip and tear through the flesh. Omanomnom TASTY!
Also If you treated your nails properly and trimmed them like animals they could form VERY sharp VERY strong nails - some might call them claws.- Just saying.
Intestinal tract, lemme get this straight. Vegetarian animals COWS was your chosen example have lots of stomach and little intestine (4 stomachs cows) this is so the acid boils that fruit/veg into nummy nummy vitamins. The intestinal tract is NOTHING to do with fruit/veg apart from the absorbtion. HOWEVER there Base bile added will dissolve the meat to maximise nutrient gain from it. And believe me, there’s a shit ton of healthy stuff in meat.
This one makes me laugh, “Meat based diets cause more deaths from cancer”? PLAINLY someone doesn’t understand cancer. Let me break it down simple style - Imagine Cancer (yes proper noun it has feelings) is a light. The switch has a key hole to get to it. I can try cigarettes and alcohol and all the other things and they may not fit it so Cancer does not shine, but then WAIT the key - dolphin slime. That’s right you were swimming with your old buddies the dolphins and you accidentally licked one. Cancer is caused by almost anything all you need is the right trigger. Yes certain things are more likely to trigger certain cancers but, anything (yes anything) could trigger it!
Now the health negatives for a vegetarian?
This is an OFFICIAL NHS page, it’s saying how to help keep vegetarian health up - firstly the fact this page exists should be enough but that’s not my point.
Near enough EVERY new section says you might need additional Vitamin B (Specifically B12 - Thiamin) So instead of eating meat you pump your body with pills. MMMMMM CANCER FREE for sure! Also make your little kiddies vegetarian and they are 8X more likely to choke to death OMG. That means they all die, you are killing children. (Of course hardly any die but the Cancer thing really pissed me off)
Secondly a double health slam - that’s just cheeky. The liver damage and heart disease that fat (yes sometimes fatty meats but also too many potatoes) cause are NEVER reversible so that fork over knife whatever is just the most bullshit thing I’ve ever heard. That’s why people who have heart disease make changes FOR LIFE. Things don’t get better. They can stop eating the meat or exercise more or whatever but they can’t stop doing these things. And Cancer again really, she’s loving the attention but notes you’ve missed out stomach cancer/ mouth cancer/ blood throat lung intestine bowel (too name a few) that are cause by acid (say fatty acid in meat or wasted carbs or) found in fruit
Taste is an opinion I have a vegetarian friend who loves the taste of meat but his PERSONAL preference is against it. Secondly why would anyone eat soggy buns, Vegie or not, those things are gross! And I bet the lovely flesh is a damn sight better than the plants it pissed on whilst it grew up. (“Ohhh you wash the plants” Well fuck you I can wash meat!)
There really isn’t I mean if there was literally there’s a scale for yumminess. It would be personal opinion! E.G. I don’t like Jam (OMG) Therefore everyone who eats jam is more likely to get cancer (remember acidic fruits) OH AND DIABETES I didn’t mention it earlier because I thought it was that DAMN stupid to blame a sugar based disease (yes type2 is sugar intake based) on ONE food group.
And how about you put that processed garbage down and the soggy buns and eat a nice bit of non processed ANYTHING you GOD DAMN like.
Now me, I love cats. If cats were on the menu at my favourite restaurant and everyone had been eating them for millennia Then yeah I’d probably chow down on them! It’s not weird if it’s common. Now think of Homosexuals when they were rare it was taboo, now they are common it’s normal. I don’t wanna start a row about homosexuals or anything (eat what you god damn want to ;) ) but please get the connection!
Also they are killed QUICKLY and EFFICIENTLY . Giving jobs to people who can then eat! and live. But hey hoe. If food is useless that’s your call… Also if I didn’t eat the meat then the animals would still be dead and then just wasted. Now that is wasteful!
Some vegetarians are anorexic/dying. Don’t wanna crush the dream. Not because they are vegetarians but they are.
I’m no Mexican so errm, YOU KNOW WHAT THIS IS IRRELEVANT to the point!
Now SIDE NOTES—-
I’m sorry that I probably repeated points said by Post2 I didn’t read it tbh I just raged.
Secondly dude, use some apostrophes PLEASE!
Finally, I don’t actually vegetarians just the ones that look down on everyone not like them, like Christians that do the same. Or straight to those a bit more curvy (gay).
People like you LITERALLY make want to blow my brains out. But, I’ll save that for an in life meeting to do it all over your vegetarian meals!
get out of there cat. you are not the 5th Beatles member. you aren’t even musically talented. what are you supposed to do? Meow meow throughout the chorus?
