You just sound misinformed about nutrition when it comes to vegans. Many healthy vegans out there who don't take many supplements and are in a
Then why don't you inform me as to another reason why a vegan literally cannot understand why someone would get angry at having their livelihood taken
by stealth? That is a serious mental deficiency, and this person we're discussing is not alone by any means. That lack of ability to comprehend seems
to be a fairly common theme among vegans.
I say "seems to be" because obviously there have been no actual studies and I am going off anecdotal evidence here. Let's not get into that tired old
As far as it only being 16 rabbits, she was caught in the act of releasing rabbits. She was not stopping until she was caught. She could have easily,
and from her words intended to, release all
the rabbits that farmer had! That's literally taking his food, his income, the thing he uses to
feed his family away! It's no different in that respect than stealing a mechanic's tools or burning a farmer's crops. It scares me that you do not
This is a common trope for vegans. This idea that vegans need loads of supplements otherwise they will look the casper the ghost.
Fine. Show me some vegans who have been vegans for many years who do not take supplements yet are as physically fit as omnivores. I hear a lot of
talk, but I don't see any actual examples. I do see examples of seemingly quite a few who are literally showing an inability to use their frontal
lobes, like this creature. I can't even bring myself to call it human... humans can think
. It can't.
I also have yet to see medical advice on veganism that does not indicate a serious potential for health issues if supplements are not taken.
You don't need any meat to live a healthy life and can get everything from plants. Supplements make it easier. B-vitamins are not
I have stated several times in this thread that I do not care what others eat as long as it does not affect me. I stand by that. My concern is
humanitarian. History is full of diseases that arise from lack of nutrition... scurvy (lack of vitamin C) comes to mind. So when I see a group of
people who seemingly have some sort of serious illness manifesting itself as a mental problem, and the primary differentiator of that group is
dietary, I suspect a dietary cause.
You complain a couple of posts above about the conditions on factory farms. I even extended my concern to try and explain the fact that we as a nation
are exhibiting a lack of understanding and an obesity issue as a whole that could correlate to the way factory arms approach meat production. In other
words, I am on your side there.
I do know that I have had to study some nutrition issues myself since I am experiencing my own health concerns. I have come across quite a few
substances that are essential in humans but which do not exist in high quantities outside of meat products.
lists 7: besides B12, there is creatine,
carnosine, D3, DHA, heme iron, and taurine. Not all are absolutely essential, but it is interesting to note that 3 of these, B12, D3, and DHA, are
directly linked to brain performance. I do not believe it is too far-fetched to wonder if a lack of these (or other) nutrients could lead to decreased
brain function, nor do I think it is unreasonable to wonder if factory farm conditions could lead to a decreased amount of these nutrients in our
present meat supply.
