Not true, go tell 1 billion healthy hindu / buddhists, not to mention myself and other vegetarians. Everyone seems to think they know someone that
'suffered' from a vegetarian diet, well there are many different varieties so not all are particularly healthy (macaroni + cheese addicts
Go tell that to the 5 billion others. Everyone knows someone that has sufferend from being a vegatarian? I have known two vegetarians, and neither
suffered. I never said it's horrible, I said it's not optimal. Your car will run on other things than gas, but try driving across the country
without using gas as your primary fuel.
Way too simplistic I'm afraid. Tell that to Polynesians, Native Americans, Mediterranean types. Different races have evolved different digestive
requirements. We are no longer direct descendants of 'cavemen'. 'Westerners' should be following a more agrarian based diet as we mostly come from
False. Polynesians ate lots of fish, some meat, and sugar cane. Saying Native Americans didn't eat meat is absolutely ignorant to the fact that
there were hundreds of Native American tribes all having different practices, culture, and eating habits. For a master list of why your argument is
un-scientific, and is based upon "Postulation before Evidence" check this website out: www.native-languages.org...
*tally up all the tribes that ate meat vs. the one's that died out, woops I mean didn't eat red meat, and talk to me.
Ever remember the sob-story about how Native Americans cried when they saw the settlers slaugheter buffalo from the trains for fun? They almost wiped
out the entire buffalo species in North America by doing this. The specific Native American tribe centered around the buffalo slaughters used the
buffalo for not only an excellent source of protein, but for many useful tools. They were one with the buffalo in the truest sense, and had a
mutually beneficial relationship. As for implying Mediterranean peoples don't eat meat, I don't even know what to say to you... I guess I could say
I really enjoyed my Gryo and a taste of my girlfriend's grilled chicken last weekend at the Greek restaurant.
Sure, some folks do require meat on a regular basis, but not everyone, and nowhere near as much as it is consumed now. At no time in history
was meat such a massive component of the average human diet. The meat-centric climates are generally high altitude, deserts or frozen habitats where
crops couldn't grow.
The majority of homo sapiens require meat on a regular basis. Sure, there are some folks that don't do this and kick themselves when they get older.
Saying meat is consumed more today and implying the average person eats more meat is a creative play on statistics. There are 6 billion people.
More meat is cut than ever before. Statistics and delivery of product are at the best level in recorded history- but more importantly, we have the
largest population on Earth today than in recorded history.
The statement "At no time in history was meat such a massive component of the average human diet" is based upon looking at statistics to fit your
preset viewpoint. Multiple thousands of flat-screen plasma TV's were manufactured in 2005-06. I believe I know only three people with one. I hope
you understand the point i'm making here.
And let's face it, most the stuff passed off as meat is only an approximation anyway
If you are refering to Taco Bell, I agree with you 100%
You can't judge the effects of a vegetarian diet on spirituality second-hand. Some people find the impact profound others not so. It's worth a 12 -
16 week trial to find out for yourself 12 weeks after my last fork of flesh (tuna was the last to go) overnight it literally felt like a blanket
had been removed from my sense of perception
Starving yourself in this way will create a euphoric effect after a while and then you will experience the downward slump of this. If I decided to
order 2 pizza's, 12 buffalo wings, and then drink a liter of Coke i'd probably fall asleep from a high blood-sugar level if not lose my lunch.
Sleeping for one hour every 4 hours will eventually produce a euphoric effect from dopamine and seratonin building up from REM deprivation. Eating
plenty of red meat that is covered in blood and gore, with a salad and vegetables and maybe some green tea is an excellent alternative to any of these
methods of well-being. The caveman style diet is essential and far surpases the vegetarian lifestyle. Eating this way wil remove the "blanket" and
boost your awareness for good. Changing your body's digestive system back to how it is at optimal strength will lessen problems your body has. Read
the book "Protein Power" for more information regarding this subject. With that book I lost 30 pounds, was able to change my body in such a way
that I could handle any carbs, and have experienced amazing mental awareness as a result of applying it's principles.
And as for the NWO... not eating red meat to stop them is lunacy.
