Would you consider giving up meat and becoming vegetarian? Please explain your answer.

Gingeleski:

Give up grilling dead animal flesh? Sorry, but this mammal is and always will be omnivorous.

Ahem:
Humans are an omnivorous species due to their physiological adaptations to eating a varied diet of vegetation and meat. As with all omnivorous species they are capable of sustaining themselves with diets of just meat or vegetables but both must be carefully managed to avoid health problems (notably anemia with vegetarians and heart disease with those who eat diets made up mostly of meat). The digestive system and dentition of Homo sapiens serve as a prime example of omnivorous adaptations.

Hussain:

Jim where did you learn those big words at?lol

Bball Star:

If humans were meant to eat meat, then we would not have to cook it. We are the only animal who cooks the animal, that is not natural. Also, over time humans would have evolved to where their stomachs were so strong that they could in fact eat it raw. Not to mention, they've done studies that have concluded that if we were meant to eat meat our teeth would be able to rip through the flesh of a raw animal.

I don't know about you, but none of that would be possible for me.

Trina:

Want to hear something really sad indeed....
Just the other day in Atlanta, Georgia a young couple got sentenced to life in jail for starving their 6 week old son to death.

The couple were vegetarian/vegans and for some unknown ridiculous reason they decided to feed their newborn ONLY apple juice and soymilk.

I guess they thought that good old fashioned breastmilk wasn't "good" enough for their own baby. I read a bit of the interviews with the couple and I was bowled over by their apparent lack of concern that they just killed thier own child. They just kept saying: "People are judging us JUST becuase we are Vegans...it has to stop"....well...I'm judging them because they KILLED their son!!!

Humans are not natural vegetarians...pure fact. We can definitely survive on a mainly vegetable and fruit diet...but usually with the help of vitamin supplements and protiens.

Many women that choose a vegetarian lifestyle will even find pregnancy harder then women who eat meat now and then. It's like the basis for our own "energy"...is meat from other life forms....sad but true.

I agree that animal cruelty is horrible...but we need to step up and stop it physically rather then "symbolically" by becoming a vegetarian JUST because of harshness to animals.

I have family members who are strict vegetarians...and I support their choice...but I myself do not think it's a natural state and so I wouldn't become one myself.

Hollywood:

NEVER GIVE UP MEAT

SHAN:

Yeah I would, to lose weight.

Cheso:

No meat? I don't think so!! Have you seen the case of the Atlanta couple that starved their child to death in the sake of "Veganism"? The dads last word were somewhat " you can't leave me in jail, I'm dieing in there" Whaaaaa!

Bball Star:

Vegetarian doesn't mean vegan.
Also, there are plenty of vegan options.. Those people must have just been crazzyy!

Cheso:

Thanks for the correction!

Hustler:

Good god, I was just waiting for some idiot to point this out. Hello? The entire vegan community pretty much is pissed off at this stupid couple for giving us all a bad name. These people were BABY KILLERS, not vegans!!! We don't feed our babies soy milk. Please don't make hasty associations.

Sancamacho:

nope, you need protein ,vegetable don't supply proteins, so become a vegetarian would be , in my opinion , a bad idea.

Bball Star:

I don't get that point at all, considering soy beans have an equal amount of protein to meat. Also, you can take protein supplements.. All of nutrients you need without the calories.

Sancamacho:

yep, but not the same amino-acids as meat.

Hustler:

No stanley, you're wrong. You clearly have not done a bit of research on the subject. The proteins in vegetables are superior to meat because they often contain all eight essential amino acids. Getting protein from a vegetarian diet is not not not not not not difficult!! I'm a vegan! I know, you're an idiot, you don't!

Bball Star:

Ahhh thank you ajkochanowicz, I was going to try and explain that but looks like you already got on it. : )

Sancamacho:

don't call me idiot . you stinky piece of sh^t.
go and [email protected] yourself.

Jon:

I already did 14 years ago.

Vaivata:

What kind of vegetarian?Being a Vegan would be hard for me.I like dairy products too much and that type of vegetarian is too stricked.I thought about it, however I couldn't give up chicken.I love chicken wings,salad,BBQ,practiclly any type of chicken.Other than that I don't eat any other meats.Red meat isn't always too good for you and pork makes my stomach hurt.So maybe if I could still eat chicken.

Bball Star:

Chickens are probably treated the worst.
They're given overdoses in hormones so they'll grow faster, and then many grow so fast that their legs snap off so all they can do is sit there until they are taken to market and killed. Not to mention they stress the females out on purpose so they'll lay more eggs. Oh, and they of course keep them in extremely small living conditions, even for chickens who are by nature close with their families. So naturally, fights break out.. But these nice industrial farmers think ahead of time and cut off their beaks.. Without any drugs of any sort, so they are perfectly conscious while their most sensitive part of their body is removed. And that's just the start. : (

Gingeleski:

But they taste great with some lemon juice and pepper on the grill!

Bball Star:

I'm glad you care about and are sensitive to the mistreatment of these poor animals.

Gingeleski:

I care more for the treatment of starving people. It's called a food chain and we are at the top. If I get to live and a chicken has to die so I (or others) may live, then so be it.

Dorinda:

No. I'm sorry I could never be vegetarian nor vegan. I love animals and want was is best for them. But I could not live off vegetables only. I love how meat taste. It's natural to eat meat, we are homnivores, chech your teeth out. Anyways I do not approve the way that they treat and raise the animals that we eat, but I'm not the one doing it. Plus O try to buy meat that is "free-range".

Hussain:

no no, i love ham ,steak chicken fish i love vegies too but i will not give up meat.

Bball Star:

Not even with how poorly animals are treated?
