Can't we all just compromise and agree that meat is awesome?



Kindest regards,


Wonder where the vegetarians will come down to printed meat. Never had a cute face.

You're right, I did leave out a few meat groups:

Pork chops:



Chicken (I had wings and chicken tenders for dinner last night):



Turkey:



Ham:



Ribs:



Roast, like prime rib:



And of course the all important STEAK:

Truth be known, you're stating the percentage of diagnosed cases of depression. The west has more cases than the east primarily because there's more money to be made from it here. Life's a roller coaster, that's simply a fact. Back in the 50s and 60s it was called "the Mondays" somebody was feeling a bit blue for a little while. They snapped out of it, and life moved on. It wasn't until some quack with a string of letters behind his name realized "Holy hell! If we can convince these people that they shouldn't ever be sad and there's something wrong with them if they feel that way, we can throw chemicals at a "condition" which can't even be measured chemically and charge them per visit and per dose!" Then it mutated into "If you're happier than the average person, something's wrong with you... better see a doctor and take some pills!" Then it became a suburban status symbol to be on a cocktail of pills to help you wake up, feel happy, not feel too happy, then go to bed at the end of the day and this modern monstrosity was born.

Americans aren't any more or less touched in the head than any other nation... we just have more idiots who believe quack head doctors with their hands in our pockets.

Interesting



Are the least depressed countries also the happiest? The answer is no. Even though depression is greatly influencing the status of people’s happiness, it seems that happiness is more related to socio-economic status and well-being. That is why, you might have guessed, Scandinavian countries are at the very top concerning overall happiness, although depression rate is somewhat high (being around 5% of the population). Since Scandinavian countries are therefore not on our list, let’s see what are the least depressed countries in the world:

www.insidermonkey.com...

Personally speaking, I went through a lot when I decided to not cower and watch and study and learn the treatment of our animal friends that we kill for food.
First I had to really look, depressing, then I had to be treated like a freak by my friends when I had made the decision, depressing, I had to get used to being made fun of a big ole guy who doesn't want to create a life of torture for any animals just because of my taste buds, depressing and so on.

Lucky for me my lovely Lady was with me and pretty much all of my Family were or became vegetarian and vegan. For People who live in a household with the constant references like the ones on this thread, name calling and implications of being other than normal it must be really difficult.

I just had a checkup and have perfect balance no deficiencies but I do eat pasture raised eggs.

Very true and we can trust studies today as much as our politicians. Nothing straight and without an agenda.

So basically you're saying that your life is just plain miserable?

Frankly, I look at it this way. I can live a hypothetically long life being miserable or I can live a shorter life but enjoy having lived it.

As I don't fear death, I think my choice is obvious.

Just like to point out a lot of Americans raise their own animals for food, we know what goes in it, treat them right and put them down as quickly as possible when that time comes.

I have no issue with some one that wants to be a vegetarian or a vegan, I know a few people that have an allergy to something in most meats, others due it for health reasons.

When it comes down to it, whatever makes you happy.

Well you may think you love meat... but inside deep down in your heart you know you would prefer a big juicy eggplant in your mouth.

I'm what I call a "lazy carnivore", meaning I can go either way (meat or no meat meals) because I just don't care one way or the other most of the time. If it's on my plate,I'll usually eat it without a problem.
I've also used veggie crumbles in place of ground beef in many recipes and no one in the family has noticed a difference (don't send the Masonic mafia after me, Aug, please! < sniffles > )

But I draw the line at torturing people with eggplant. Like Brussels Sprouts, eggplant is cruel and unusual punishment thrust upon innocent people -- nobody deserves that

ROFLMAO!

Nah, they are just a treat for me. As a Type 2 diabetic, it's one of the few sweet things that I allow myself.

And on that note:

Meat is actually much better for me than plants: tomatoes, potatoes, green beans, CORN, etc...most of them I have to really watch how much of them I eat due to the amount of carbohydrates in them.

Meat on the other hand...mwahahahahahahaha.

So I'd better not get bit by one of those Lone star ticks and get lyme disease or I'm really screwed!

There’s no way in the world this is true.

Human beings were not created to even eat meat.

Being an ex vegetarian, and one who eats little meat now, I know one is over healthier without eating meat.

This so called study( very unscientific) is probably sponsored by the meat industry

I was depressed eating meat not just the taste but how it made me feel for starters. It was an allergen to my body. Never liked it as a kid or even adult before know the issue medically.
