Your post is in the form of a question, but you have ended it with a full stop instead of a question mark. That is an elementary error, so I mark you down accordingly.

Here endeth the English lecture.

Are you complaining about my sarcasm towards fools, the fact that my posts are longer than a sentence or the fact that I can write fairly good English?

We actually don`t. You`re being selective about what you consider and what you ignore. For example, our digestive system is longer than that of a carnivore our size (you consider that) but shorter than that of a herbivore our size (you ignore that). We can`t digest common plant material. We can`t survive without B12, which we can`t get from any plant. We need a wider range of amino acids than can be obtained from any plant.

Our bodies are not as well adapted to eating meat as a carnivore.

Our bodies are not as well adapted to eating plants as a herbivore.

We are adapted to being omnivores. To use your phrasing, we have omnivorous bodies.

"Vegetarians don`t eat grass.

We actually have vegetarian bodies (we don`t have genuine canines, have weak stomach acid not suited to dissolving meat, long intestinal tracts etc) although eating meat in small quantities is probably not overly harmful. Peace out!"

Yet we can`t digest cellulose, something damn useful to a herbivore.

Regardless, westerners eat too much meat. It`s something like a plate half filled with a chop, and a little, tiny bit of greenery on the side. Thats not healthy at all. Thats "colon cancer 30 years later" not healthy. Therefore I would argue a balanced vegetarian diet is much more healthy then the traditional western diet. However, meat is healthy, the way we consume it is not.

On that note, producing things like soy products and shipping them can take up more resources (and hence be worse `for the world`) then buying locally raised meat (no shipping, no transport) on many occasions. Yes land used yes,

We`re not "meant" to do anything. We`re not "designed" by anyone. And my point about clothing being unnatural was to point out how stupid it is to use what`s natural as part of the argument, because who decides what`s natural or what isn`t? I`m sorry you didn`t get that.

Who cares what kind of teeth I have? Why should I obey my "design" instead of my brain and desires? My canines give me the option to eat meat, but I choose not to because I don`t want to. I`m not stopping you from choosing differently. So why are you trying to claim my preference is "unnatural"? I get enough of that crap over my sexuality. I don`t need it over my dinner.

I found the picture amusing.

@ Musuko42 and if man hadnt been meant to eat meat, we would be able to eat far more grains and vegetables than we are. Agian as I stated before, name one grain that doesn`t cause serious health issues if we eat it once it`s started to rot. There is a reason why we can eat meat once it starts to do that.

@ Musuko42 I am right. Does not matter how you try to use you`re smoke and mirrors. You haven`t disproved a single thing I said. Humans are not and never have been a niche species. Call it whatever you want. Evolution still made it so we can eat meat. Humans have never been a scavager species either. I`m sure that there were times when man did eat meat that other animals killed out of opurtounity. Primates are known to use tools and wear primative clothing. How about the octopus that wears sea shells and coconut shells are armor? I guess that doesn`t count as clothing because its not to you`re liking huh?

Yes we used our brains to figure it out and make machines, also unnatural.
We buy our food when all other animals must hunt, scavenge etc. also unnatural.
Sure they are "natural" to us but not in nature.

We have distanced ourselves from nature.

That was my point that you missed and will continue to miss, I am sure.

Your point was that we have made ourselves unnatural.

I replied that (i) making ourselves unnatural isn`t necessarily a bad thing, that it has a great many benefits and (ii) it could be argued that modern life is natural because it stems from humans using intelligence and tool use, two things that are natural for humans.

How on earth do you conclude that I missed your point when I replied so directly to it? That doesn`t make any sense.

People, this is one topic (of many) that has no wrong or right. Everyone has their point of view. Eat what you want to eat. Call yourself what you will. What`s wrong are those who try to ram their opinions on others in hopes to make themselves feel superior in some shallow way.

It`s amazing how many retorts stem from one photo of a cow doing its natural business. It`s not like it`s a child in distress.

On the one hand: An unknown cost and a feeling of "quite sad really".

On the other hand: Extended life, all medicine, the transmission of knowledge further than a few feet, reliable food supply, hugely improved shelter, reliable drinkable water supply...that`ll do to begin with.

A hunter-gatherer`s life might be more natural, but that doesn`t mean it`s better.

An alternative argument is that humans are natural, therefore what they do is natural. Our intelligence and aptitude for tool use are a natural part of us, so surely using them is natural?

PUI " Just because we`re the only species that survives this way (in such a big way), does not mean that we are unnatural."

I agree with EVERYTHING you have said so far. Even the above statement, however, we have made ourselves unnatural.
The way we travel is unnatural , ie. flying... we were nevr naturally meant to fly.
The way we communucate ,ie. instantalty across vast distances
The way we eat and gather food, ie. going to McDonald or the grocery store and buying frozen diners.
All these actions ,to me, are the farthest thing from "natural" I can think of. We did use our brains to get to this point in human development but at what cost? Humans continue to strive to distance ourselves from nature which is quit sad really.

Even still, nothing beats a thick juicy BBQ steak and cold beer.

Musuko42, human beings don`t have fur, they don`t have sharp fangs or claws, they don`t have camouflage... What has let us survive is our intelligence. Since we do not have the ability to slice through food like a tiger can, we invited knives. Since we cannot keep warm or protect our skin on our own like an animal with fur does, we wear clothes.

I would argue that those things are not unnatural at all. Our intelligence is the trait which makes us an enduring species. Just because we`re the only species that survives this way (in such a big way), does not mean that we are unnatural.

Moroever, I have read the peer-review journals that prove that vegitarianism is much more healthy for the human metabolism and far less likely to cause disease, as well as potentially enabling all of the world to have a healthy diet while massively lowering global warming. Personally, I only eat organic free-range meat a couple of times a week to try and minimise the damage to myself and the environment. Sorry fellow meat eaters, but at least I`m honest. If you don`t believe me you can read "the China study" which is a good laymans reference. If you give a poo and just like meat, thats fine too, but lets be honest about the facts eh?

This is one of the few posts here that makes any sense to me. My GF is a strict vegetarian, a Doctor of Biochemistry, a personal fitness trainer and has a particular interest in nutrition and ecology. I am also a biochemist, I work on muscle stem cells and I love a big juicy steak (organic only). Most of the points here suggest that we should eat meat because we evolved to, which we certainly did. However, you have not addressed 1) The frequency of mean in our ancestors diet 2)(and this is an important one) The bioavailability of the meat, ie. how it is prepared effects how it effects us physiologically, 3) All historical meat was organic and free-range, wild buffalo do not come in ground beef form full of steroid hormones.

"Meat is a natural part of the human diet."

Show me another animal that, of its own volition, wears clothing. Until you do, go ahead and stop that perversion of wearing clothes; it`s clearly not natural, and you seem quite hung up on humans behaving naturally.

Saying nothing of your computer use.

"Because humans are made to consume meat."

Humans weren`t "made" for anything. We evolved. Big difference.

We evolved into a niche where we could scrape a living where we could, and being able to pick rotting meat from carcasses left by predators helped our chances; thus such traits were preserved.

So if you want to live by your evolutional programming, go ahead; help yourself to some rotting zebra corpse in the Savannah.

Want proof? The human body can and will digest raw meat that has been left out for up to two weeks or more. Up to a certain point this is actually better for us. It allows the enzymes to start to break down the meat and it also produces probiotics. We see this happen all the time in third world. Why are they able to do this? Because humans are made to consume meat. Anyone of us could do this at any time. For a while, those of us who eat fresh meat that`s cooked would be sick until our digestion systems returned to normal. Name grains or vegetables that won`t poison or cause a host of other issues. Rye, wheat, potatoes, tomatoes, and soy. There are far too many to name here.

When will vegans and vegetarians stop this non-sense?!?!?
Meat is a natural part of the human diet. We (modern man), beat Neanderthals out because we didn`t need to consume six to seven thousand or more calories a day, with 90% of that made up from eating meat. Our calorie intake was less then four thousand per day. There were twice as many as us if not more compared to them. We out competed them for the limited supplies of meat. We also supplemented our diets with grains and vegetables. Humans are and always will be Omnivores.

Meh, cows eat grass as well. Also in a lot of main stream slaughter houses they get their own sh*t caked on them so much that when they do get slaughtered, some of the sh*t stays on the meat (even when the fur gets taken off.)
Let`s not forget all the fecal matter in fast food restaurants as well, which was pointed out on an infograph a while back on this site.
So really, everyone eats sh*t. That`s life though, right?

I have one in my head.

I have repeatedly stated that some animals classed as carnivores eat some plants, so that part of your rebuttal doesn`t apply very well.

How do you define `omnivore`? Do you reject the word entirely? If you define `carnivore` as an animal that eats meat and plants, `omnivore` becomes a useless word.

Come to think of it, what statement of mine are you disagreeing with? Would you quote it or refer to when I posted it?

I`m pretty sure on some David Attenborough documentary about the evolution of man that had our ape-like ancestors not evolved to eat meat then we`d never of had the protein needed to grow bigger brains. So purely from a survival view, omnivorous is clearly the superior way to be. If everyone became vegan we`d all evolve to be vegan only and it is always better to stay as diverse as possible. If the technology to make supplements was lost in time then I`d assume we`d revert back to smaller brains.

Granted I`m talking about a hypothetical future but losing a technology could happen for a multitude of reasons, apocolyptic disaster, any number of unforseeable things that might happen when humans colonize other planets... My point anyway, better to lose a tech than a superior form of evolution. Eat meat for humanity`s future! Huzzah!

Is that the currently favoured vegetarian historical revisionism?

The vast majority of our ancestors did little or no gathering because farming was used instead, which led to large settlements, which led to increased population, which means that the vast majority of our ancestors lived relative recently (i.e. the last 10,000 years or so).

But back when everyone lived as hunter-gatherers, both hunting and gathering were important. Meat was more important then than now because they had far less variety in the plants they ate (making it far harder or impossible to get enough of all the necessary amino acids) and no way to get B12 apart from eating meat or eating dung.

We do (more accurately, the bacteria inside us do), but it`s made further down our digestive system than the part which can extract B12.

So our poo contains B12 that we made, but our bodies don`t. The B12 we make is only useful if we eat our own dung. Or someone else`s dung, of course, as the same thing applies to them.

So now we know that the women in "2 Girls 1 Cup" are vegetarians! :)

As a vegetarian and rational human, the photo makes no sense. Do people really think that vegetarians eat grass? Especially grass that come from a cow pasture... well in case you are unsure, we don`t. Actually if anyone did research, you would know that eating meat means that you ingest a high about of feces from the processing of said
meat. There are thousands of reports that will show you the same. So reconsider this image, as in all likelihood, you eat poo, lol.

I`d probably go vegetarian if I could walk into a shop and buy cheap vegetarian ready-made meals in which the protein contained all the required amino acids in the right proportions (as meat does). In other words, if someone else had spent the time needed to ensure I got an adequate diet from plants. A freezer full of those and a bottle of B12 tablets and I`d be fine with being vegetarian.

[quote]The pointy teeth are my proof. The creature you speak of had the teeth because they needed the meet.[/quote]

We are not the creature referred to and we don`t live in the same circumstances, so it is not proof that humans *need* to eat meat.

Human teeth imply that we`re suited to eating both plants and meat but that doesn`t prove either are necessary, particularly since circumstances have been changed so dramatically recently by large scale transportation of food over large distances. It`s now possible to easily get a wide variety of edible plants.

The prehuman animal you refer to needed meat. Our ancestors needed meat. We don`t. Humans are versatile enough to do without it in the circumstances that we live in.

Equality`s a great thing!!
But try explaining that to the tasty shark out there. I think he`d think equality`s being able to eat you too. ^_^

Also, while vegetarianism isn`t bad for you, if done right, it`s really just avoiding your natural self.

You NEED protein, and you NEED vitamins that are found in meat. You can take supplements all you want, but all you`re doing is tip-toeing around the fact that you are an omnivore, only based on your own morality.

It`s like being gay and getting married and having children to avoid accepting the fact that you`re homosexual.

I don`t get vegetarians. I wanted to go vegetarian because I hate animal abuse but you know what: we`re MEANT to eat it. We`ve always ate it. Millions of other animals and insects eat it. It`s just the way it is. Sure, we can probably live without it with a careful minitoring of our diet, but the ability to carefully monitor our diet did NOT exist a hundred years ago, so meat became essential to our diet. There IS a difference between taking a B vitamin pill and having our bodies process the vitamin through meat. Lostinkora is stating hugely wrong stereotypes about meat eaters. In her arguments, she assumes all meat eaters only eat Mcdonalds and other unhealthy sources of meat and completely neglects the idea that many people eat healthy sources of meat and remain very healthy (such as athletes). She also assumes everyone eats meat from well-known sources of animal abuse when many eat natural-raised animals.

Animals eat other animals. It`s how it is. It isn`t unhealthy or unnatural. What makes some meat-eaters today so unhealthy is that we eat mostly the fat in the meat and not the lean parts--like the muscle. For example, you can`t compare an omnivore who`s fat off Mcdonalds to an omnivore who eats lean meats like chicken. Of course one will be dramatically more healthy than the other. That`s like comparing a vegetarian who eats a lot of fruit and veggies to the one who eats a lot of potato chips. It isn`t as easy as saying "MEAT EATERS ARE FAT AND VEGETARIANS ARE SKINNY AND HEALTHY!"

Stelly, aside from the fact that you posted your comment at least three times, your point lost validity once you said vegetarians look unhealthy. My best friend is a vegetarian and she looks anything but unhealthy. The only vegetarians that look unhealthy are the ones who are doing it wrong and don`t know what kind of stuff to eat in order to get necessary nutrients. In other words, a fairly small percentage of them. I know, or have known, many vegetarians, and none of them ever looked unhealthy.

Angilion is right. Carnivores ONLY eat meat. Now, if Dahmer only ate meat, he`d be a carnivore. However, I`m pretty sure he ate his veggies as well.

People who eat both meat and veggies are OMNIvores. To say that a cannibal is a subset of a carnivore is incorrect, because if that person eats things besides meat, they`re not true carnivores.

Strictly speaking, carnivores are animals that eat *only* meat. The definition gets stretched a bit to include animals that sometimes eat a little plant material as a natural part of their diet. The carnivore/omnivore/herbivore split is nice and neat but reality is more of a spectrum than three discrete groups.

It`s not the main.. it`s the ONLY source of B12. B12 can only be found on meat, milk or eggs. B12 is also an essential vitamin for our brain and nervous system to work properly, so if you`re not getting your so needed share form meat, eggs and milk, you better go see a doctor ASAP.

How and what people eat comes down to chooses, "Meat"(minus overly processed poo) is a concentrated source of protein in a easy accessible place, be be that domesticated or not. And considering that a vast majority, efficient and effective means to this protein are insects. But humans love easy food(plus prefer odds that it won`t kill us when consumed, mostly). We are opportunistic creatures as well as ones of habit.

Vagens in my experience take issue with EVERYTHING that they see as threat to their lifestly choose. Vegeitariens would see this picture as a joke move on. Instead Vagans in their vanity try to impress apon others that farming animals is bad and continuely use meida matirial of factory facilties or "factory farms" their proof the animals are harmed which is usaully undisputed expect for the spin involed for said pictures.

B12 is the big deal-breaker. It`s essential (as all vitamins are - it`s more or less the definition) and there are no known plant sources of B12 that humans can use. None. Plenty in meat. Lots in eggs and milk. Damn all in plants. Suppliment or die, that`s your choice.

There are some vegans who don`t suppliment and don`t die. That`s because they get their B12 from food and water contaminated with faeces. There`s a lot of B12 in animal dung (including human).

Ironically, humans make enough B12 in their digestive system, as do many animals. The biggest problem is that it`s made further along than the bits of the system that can extract B12, so it just gets pooed out. It`s speculated that it`s one reason why many animals eat their own dung.

Humans are also suited to being aggressive, tribal killers who take what they want by force and cunning and to hell with everyone else. We`re at the top of the food chain because humans can make better weapons than other animals and are meaner and more cunning than other animals.

It`s natural for humans to eat meat. It`s also natural for humans to kill other humans in order to steal their resources. Arguments to nature are somewhat dodgy ground.

The rest is right, but that`s not quite true. I tried a less extreme form of the same argument recently and Lionhart42 was able to prove that wrong, let alone your more extreme form. You can`t get everything you need from a vegetarian diet unless you`re including lacto-ovo semi-vegetarian in your definition of vegetarian (but that would greatly undermine your other points) or you eat faeces (which few people are perfectly happy to do).

With knowledge, care, supplements from a factory and access to a far wider choice of food than most people have, it`s possible to get everything you need from a vegetarian diet. Although you could quibble a bit about the supplements because they`re made by bacteria, which are technically animals.

*The following diseases are most common among meat eaters: anemia, appendicitis, arthritis, breast cancer, cancer of the colon, cancer of the prostrate, constipation, diabetes, gallstones, gout, high blood pressure, indigestion, obesity, piles, strokes and varicose veins. Lifelong vegetarians visit hospital 22% less often than meat eaters and for shorter stays. Vegetarians have a 20% lower blood cholesterol level than meat eaters and this reduces heart attack and cancer risks considerably.
*Animals suffer from pain and fear just as much as you do. How would you like to spend your last hours locked in a truck, packed into a cage with hundreds of other terrified animal and then cruelly pushed into a blood soaked death chamber.

I have nothing against vegetarians. To live that way is a personal preference and it harms no one.

However, humans are adapted to eat meat, and meat has a higher concentration of energy than plants. So to be a vegetarian is a "disadvantage" in that sense, albeit a minor one.

The only people I am against is those that think that by being a vegetarian or vegan is somehow morally superior to not being one.

Meat eaters don`t "remain FAT". I know plenty of MEN who eat meat regularly and are UNDERWEIGHT. The reason vegans put on less weight than vegetarians, and vegetarians than meat eaters is because they have less to eat, and therefore eat less. That`s more or less the whole concept of "dieting".

And those babies had babies who had more babies and eventually you appeared. With pointy teeth. Congratulations. *rolling eyes*

"Wow, that`s all I really have to say. You can`t really believe that is it unhealthy NOT to eat meat....ummm....yea...

Eat up bitches..."

1) Look at your teeth. We NEED meat in our diet, your teeth are designed for it. If you don`t believe me, look in a cow`s mouth, or an elephant`s mouth. Those teeth are designed for JUST greens.

2) I got to the point where they said the PETA crew filmed it, and stopped. We all know that PETA "rescues", then kills more animals every year than any animal shelter every could hope to. Anything PETA says is an automatic lie to me.

do you know why humans some sharp and pointed teeth? to tear into meat. Human are supposed to eat meat. we are built to eat meet. to all the vegitards, you are actually hurting yourself by not eat meat. meat is tasty and i dont care if it falls in a vat of cancer...cook it up and eat it.

It`s really annoying when vegetarians claim we aren`t supposed to eat meat (or, as my vegan friend says, dairy or egg products also). We`ve been eating all of those foods since the dawn of man and we have incisors for a reason.

lostinkorea, pesticides and diseases can be found in plants too. As for the blood, if I were worried about that, I`d eat only kosher meat. And no, seeing close-ups of that sausage doesn`t make me want to stop eating meat, and I`m not gonna stop eating anything just because it "looks icky" close up. I`ve been eating all my life and have had no health problems brought on by my diet.

As for your other link, I haven`t had nearly that many health problems annually at all, but that`s a good point, I`d much rather eat bug poo.

Uh, yea, I don`t eat grass... but thanks anyway. And if its the compost you`re talking about, I`ll gladly take that any day over blood, pesticides, and diseased laden animals. Perhaps if you saw close-ups of what processed meat looks like (warning - not for the squeemish): you will then decide to eliminate these products from your diet. The bottom line...meats are just too dangerous for human consumption and should be avoided for life!

YUM, MEAT!
