Maybe if we didn't feel free to have a daily holocaust in the millions of lives of pigs, cows, chickens, etc., we'd be a more peaceful planet
About to be manfully unpopular.
ALL food causes death of living things. The vegetables and grain you eat, by necessity rip through land killing masses of insects and worms. I've
lived in a rural area. Those birds follow the plough and gobble up masses of worms and bugs, and I'm not even going into the wee things that get
sliced apart in the process. Field mice die in their hundreds fo every field of grain harvested. Insects are poisoned with pesticides to protect the
crops, birds and rabbits get shot and trapped to stop them eating the crops. If we didn't do that we'd have our crops stripped bare and we'd
Do they not count if you don't see them on a plate? Or do they not count because they are small?
I wonder what the number of deaths per calorie are for veggies vs meat.
I'd also like to point out there are NO vegetable sources of the type of omega three oils our bodies require. The types of O3 you see being pushed on

afterthought: I'd like to know how hunter gatherer tribes in the amazon are supposed to survive if they can't hunt. There wouldn't be eskimos
If you knew what really goes on with your meat, you'd gag on it. If you don't, I sincerely ask you to consider whether or not you're a psychopath or
Like I said, I'm country. Fished and ate the fish. Killed and plucked geese. People have been rearing and slaughtering their own animals for about
10,000 years. I'm no more a psychopath then a chicken is when it's eating a worm, no more amoral than an osprey eating a fish or a fox eating a
chicken. Humans are just animals doing what animals do, and we evolved to eat a meat based diet. Isotope values on the bones of very ancient humans
show their main source of calories was flesh, typically between 60% and 70%.
