Nope. In fact we should eat more. I hear lion fish are eating up local fish populations in the Gulf of Mexico. We should teach them a lesson by eating them.

Our food is already over processed and most of it is already bad for us due to that processing, ill take organic over science lab unknowns...

Um, I'm perfectly calm though. I didn't even feel attacked, so what are you talking about? I simply answered your questions.

For my health, avoiding animal produce is healthier. And actually —whilst we're on the subject— you justify it with the fact that meat is healthy, but it can be just as unhealthy as it's a possible carrier of several [health] diseases. So it's a pick and choose subject. My life has gotten better since I stopped eating animal produce, at least.

And there's way more to eat than merely grains, fruits and veggies, though.

Next question: Should we enslave and exploit plants to make oxygen for us? Do vegans care aout the various arthropods and nematodes they must consume along with there meals?

Every 12 seconds a cabbage dies at the hands of humanity. Their population dwindles ever further with each passing day, birthed only to satiate the hunger of selfish homosapiens. However, by sacrificing the life of just one child per month, you could save countless cabbages, carrots, and packets of cheeseballs. Sign up now and receive a free broccoli plush, and updates on fields of food going unharvested. For just one infant blood sacrifice a month we can draw out the lifespan of a food item, and allow it to wither, to fade past its sell-by in peace.

Thank you for listening.

Well it seemed the way you posted, seemed like you were a bit angry or some such, not always easy to tell. Sorry.

Maybe its different over there, i can't say but the way the US does things with meatless substitutes, usually processed unhealthy stuff.

It is crazy to ponder. The blood of our ancestors flowing through our veins is a testament to the fact that each and every one of us is the product of millions of instances of being the one who ate, rather than the one who was eaten. Or, when competing with our own kind, the one who ate, rather than the one who starved. The challenge of survival can make it seem that ruthlessness is the quintessential element of existence.
Christ teaches that men are sinners from birth. That certainly seems to be the case.
And little wonder that mankind yet still struggles with a warlike nature!
Oh well. You got me thinking. The decision to live is the decision to kill. For my part, I am not good at going full vegetarian (let alone vegan). I have at least been avoiding the flesh of my fellow mammals recently. Yet many fish, chickens, and potatoes continue to be sacrificed for the sake of my continued existence.

I don't like SAO... Anymore...

But I'm just telling you the truth, here you go http://www.theguardian.com/science/2013/aug/05/world-first-synthetic-hamburger-mouth-feel

Yeah, no thanks still. Man has issues making medicine that doesn't have 1000 side effects, i don't trust science to make my food.

Organic free ranged, grass fed all the way.

While we're on the subject of not eating, there are a couple of pretty awesome fasting" techniques out there...

First off, let's look at Breatharianism or Inedia:

- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inedia


Inedia (Latin for "fasting") or breatharianism /brɛθˈɛəriənɪzəm/ is the belief that it is possible for a person to live without consuming food.

Breatharians claim that food, and in some cases water, are not necessary for survival, and that humans can be sustained solely by prana, the vital life force in Hinduism. According to Ayurveda, sunlight is one of the main sources of prana, and some practitioners believe that it is possible for a person to survive on sunlight alone. The terms breatharianism or inedia may also refer to this philosophy practiced as a lifestyle in place of the usual diet.

Hey, that seems pretty darn interesting, eh? Pretty much inline with what we're looking for here. Let's read on:

Breatharianism is considered a lethal pseudoscience by scientists and medical professionals, and several adherents of these practices have died from starvation and dehydration.

Well, fuck. That's a tad disappointing. Who knew?

Another fasting technique, one that I practice daily, is called "Intermittent Fasting".

- http://jamesclear.com/the-beginners-guide-to-intermittent-fasting

I do the 16/8 split. 16 hours of fasting and 8 hours of feeding every single day. I don't eat a lot of dead animals... maybe every couple of months I'll have some dead chicken, but I do eat a TON of eggs (the entire egg sans shell).

Fasting works great. My body fat is around 11.3%, atm, all thanks to kale, eggs, Greek yogurt, sunflower seeds, and almonds.

Look at some of the footage of the Jews in the death camps during the Holocaust and then tell me if you think people are better off without food.

scientists in Japan were able to make burgers out of poop, but it probably tastes bad.
Posted 3/9/15
Yeah the Japanese have a odd fetish with feces, saw a thing on their toilet bowl, bowls for ice-cream and made to look like feces. It was um bizarre as hell. Sometimes they can make the most interesting stuff, have the most rich culture, then they do stuff like that and i scratch my head and wonder.
