Some people get all messed up from too much nitrates, their blood pressure can drop too low leading to hypovolemia. Not enough blood flow to the brain from low blood volume. Basically dehydration from a combination of diaretics and nitrates in veggies. Possibly because of not enough salt in the diet too.

More people die of low blood pressure than high blood pressure, the same goes for the amount of people who wind up in ER at hospitals. Notice how many people wind up needing an IV containing sodium Chloride in the ER?

I agree with what you say, except this:


That being said, is any meat eater here really healthy? The mass majority of people eat meat and the mass majority also have serious health issues.


Everyone breaths, and the mass majority you say has serious health issues. Clearly breathing is the true reason for these health issues, since everyone and not just the majority does it.



I’m not saying it’s caused by meat. My point is that you can’t say being vegan causes health issues if meat eaters aren’t healthy to begin with.

I’m late to the party... as usual.

I’ve been vegetarian since I was 19 (so just over 20 years) and on and off vegan for the last several years. I will say that I don’t think it’s for everyone. Since eating more vegan, I really have to eat a lot to try not to lose weight, and even then I might drop a couple of pounds which I don’t think looks great on me. Nowadays I eat mostly vegan but eat vegetarian on two occasions - holidays and pizza. Sorry pizza needs cheese. Real cheese not vegan cheese.

I have to take iron supplements, and sometimes my iron still gets low. I’ve had a couple of infusions in the past. I take b-12 too.

I eat the way I do because I like it, concern for animal welfare, environment, etc etc. Also aside from occasional anemia it keeps me very healthy - healthy weight, low bp, low cholesterol etc

But it isn’t for everyone. I think a lot of people really can’t do it physiologically. My husband and kids all eat meat, diary, and eggs... and I’m happy to cook it for then. I do try to get meat from “happy” local cows, grass fed, small farms. We are lucky to live somewhere that getting good local meat, diary, and eggs is possible.

Anyway, I give you props for trying it out. It’s possible that if you’d continue with it you would eventually start feeling more energy, but you know you body better than anyone on a message board. If you are concerned about factory farming there are a lot of way that you can minimize your support of that without having to go full vegan.

Hey, thanks for piping up. Im definitely going to continue. I just need to make better meal plans and be more dynamic in my cooking.

Ive never been a big meat eater so it really shouldn't be difficult. I'm having fun learning new tasty recipes!

cheers

I have no issue with veganism, so long as vegans appreciate that increased intensive soya production is calamitous to the environment, not to mention the bulldozing of rain forests to make the space and the pollution to get soya to your plate.

Ummm, soy is one of the most unhealthy things you can eat.
