    FOR TEARING FLESH!!

    You just proved yourself to be the moron auburnjunky. Even herbivores have incisors. Having them doesn`t mean you are supposed to eat meat. Actually if you compare our teeth to wild animals, they are more like the teeth of herbivores than carnivores. Also, carnivorous predators are able to catch their prey (meat) without help. They don`t use guns, traps, or farms. They run after it, grab it, and tear it up. Show me one human that can run down a squirrel, rabbit, deer, or turkey without some sort of weapon or trap.

    @freddyferret There`s an interesting theory floating around that early humans, when hunting, ran down their prey in a contest of endurance, as opposed to speed. In an interesting article over at Seed Magazine, there`s some neat speculation on exactly how a human could "run down a squirrel, rabbit, deer, or turkey without some sort of weapon or trap", to use your own words.

    yeah, freddyferret, I was right there with you until that "Show me one human that can run down a squirrel, rabbit, deer, or turkey without some sort of weapon or trap." line. I can catch rabbits, chickens and fish without tools - plus I`m pretty sure our ancestors were eating wild animals before they started using tools.

    We are not herbivores, we also are not carnivores, humans are omnivores. Therefore, we are going to have certain characteristics from both sides. Our make up is not simply one or the other, we are designed to live off of both. . . comparing a human to a carnivore as an argument base is just stupid.

    No matter the era that we humans live in, food of any kind is food. It doesn`t matter if it`s animal or plant, if your hungry enough you will eat what you can obtain.

    When people are trapped for days on the sea in a tiny lifeboat with no provisions other than your "fellow" shipmates, they after a while start to look appealing. There have been many examples of this throughout history. Some humans have even resorted to eating the leather that they are wearing.

    I`m of the mind that you can whatever you want, just don`t go around pushing YOUR ideals on to me.

    Thanks guys lol.

    Omnivores UNITE!

    A strict vegetarian diet causes health problems.

    Only a few of the dietary necessities that vegetarians typically fail to fulfill:

    * Zinc, which is an important element needed for healthy skin and a healthy immune system.

    *Calcium, which of course is not only needed to keep our bones strong but it is also needed for functioning of the nerves and muscles, as well as helping our blood to clot properly.

    * Vitamin D, which is essential for the absorption of calcium and phosphorous.

    * Iron, a deficiency of which leads to anemia.

    * Vitamin B-12, needed for blood formation and cell division within the body. A deficiency in this vitamin can cause severe and irreversible nerve damage.

    * And of course, plain old protein is needed for the body to grow and repair itself.

    Freddy I`m no expert on ancient history, but I do know that humans have been eating meat since at least the Ice Age.
    Humans would trap and drive deer, caribou, etc over cliffs.
    Humans would make tools to kill animals.

    Just as a cheetah uses it`s crazy speed to kill an antelope, we humans use our well developed brains to think of a way to catch our prey.

    we aren`t even omnivores. We cook our food. When was the last time you tore the leg off of a cow and ate it raw, or pulled something out of the ground and devoured it?

    We cook our food. That`s more special than picking plant or meat.

    So... for all those people claiming that vegetarian is the only way to live.

    You do realize mankind would be extinct if that were the case? Ya know that back in the day when you couldn`t store food the only way to eat was to go out and get your own food, and come winter time when all the plants die, guess what people had to eat?

    Yeah... all your ancestors ate meat, you can protest all you want about the ethical treatment of animals, but in the end you have meat in your blood. Deal with it.

    Vegetarians have weak bones and Vegans are positively brittle. Google it if you don`t belive me.

    THEORETICALLY being vegetarian is healthy.
    The reality is it`s not. It`s too complicated to figure out which plants gives which mineral when you could just have a good steak.

    @ Isobar: That is no longer the case though and, because we now have the ability to store food, we can afford to evaluate whether or not it is morally permissible to eat meat. Also, just because our ancestors did something a certain way doesn`t mean it`s okay. Are we going to bring back slavery just because our ancestors did it?

    Not to add to the flame war, but a lot of the arguments about vegetarians being unhealthy are based on stereotypes, not reality. I`m not a vegan, so I couldn`t tell you about that, but I am a vegetarian and my iron, calcium, and the various B vitamin levels are well above what`s necessary.
    It`s important to realize that not every person who eats meat eats well rounded, "healthy" meat. I`m a college student, so most of my peers that eat meat live off fast food burgers, ramen noodles, etc. These sources of meat actually contain far fewer nutrients than the meat substitutes I buy

    Comparing eating meat to slavery is retarded.

    Cows are not people. As long as we don`t eat apes, simians, cetaceans, or house pets, I say fry `em up.

    Also, PETA are still terrorists. Giving signs to naked women just makes them seem more retarded.

    There are many dietary needs that we don`t fully understand, that any person should be willing to acknowledge. But daily vitamins can supply the necessary zinc, calcium, vitamin D, iron, and B vitamins. Even without taking vitamins every day, I`m much healthier in terms of nutrition than my omnivorous peers. It comes down to personal choice really. I don`t care what anyone else eats, I just don`t like being told that I`m unhealthy when every medical test I`ve gone through says otherwise.

    I don`t necessarily disagree with PeTA on issues - on some rare occasions, they raise good points - but I hate PeTA as a whole. I wasn`t really impressed with this campaign - it doesn`t raise the morality of eating meat, really, just makes you remember pooty canibal horror flicks.

    You just proved yourself to be the moron auburnjunky.

    Certainly not for the reasons you give. It is absolutely and unequivocally true that humans are physiologically adapted to eating meat.

    Even herbivores have incisors. Having them doesn`t mean you are supposed to eat meat.

    Herbivores don`t have canines, though, and those that have incisors have different shaped ones adapted for tough plant material such as bark...which humans don`t have. Humans do have canines.

    Who cares about "supposed to"? That`s not the argument.

    Actually if you compare our teeth to wild animals, they are more like the teeth of herbivores than carnivores.

    No they aren`t. They`re the teeth of omnivores, because that`s what humans are physically adapted to be.

    Also, carnivorous predators are able to catch their prey (meat) without help. They don`t use guns, traps, or farms. They run after it, grab it, and tear it up. Show me one human that can run down a squirrel, rabbit, deer, or turkey without some sort of weapon or trap.

    That is a lamest "ignore biology, humans are meant to be vegetarian" argument I have ever seen. The fact that humans are also physiologically adapted to using tools says nothing about what else they`re physiologically adapted to, like being omnivores.

    In any case, many carnivores are predominantly scavengers rather than predators. So your argument is just plain wrong all round.

    @freddyferret There`s an interesting theory floating around that early humans, when hunting, ran down their prey in a contest of endurance, as opposed to speed. In an interesting article over at Seed Magazine, there`s some neat speculation on exactly how a human could "run down a squirrel, rabbit, deer, or turkey without some sort of weapon or trap", to use your own words.

    It isn`t speculation. It`s called persistence hunting. Some humans still live that way, most famously the !Kung, and there are some pretty clear physical adaptations that humans have which make them ideally suited to doing it.

    The only animal that a human can`t run down is one that was engineered by humans - the modern horse.

    To add to what Angilion was saying, we are in fact omnivores, which means we are designed/evolved/created to eat both meat and plants. The fact that we use tools doesn`t make us horrible for eating meat (what a strange rational). There are several creatures in nature that also use tools to eat their prey.

    Personally I eat meat because I like the taste, and I enjoy the protein that I get from it.

    On a side note, is it weird that the pic made me hungry??? ;-)

    yea strict vegetarians cannot get all of their vitamins from food, but my madre take vitamins for that.

    The only essential nutrient that`s impossible to get from a truly vegetarian diet *in a modern, industrialised society* is B12. You can get that from dung, but most people would prefer to get it from a lab. It`s a waste product of some bacteria.

    A modern, industrialised society is needed because you need a wider variety of plant food than you could get without widespread transportation of food.

    Vegetarianism is viable nowadays, if you know what you`re doing. Humans are biologically suited to being omnivores, but we can use our minds and tool-using abilities to live as herbivores if we want to. What winds me up is ignorant burblers who deny reality to say that we`re naturally herbivores.

    vegetarianism is pretty rediculous. But trying to protest the consumption of meat by humans, is even more rediculous. I wonder if these people try to stop lions from eating gazelles. or snakes from eating mice. Humans are another animal. The difference is we`re intelligent enough to industrialize. Besides. being a vegetarian saves 0 animals.

    yup too damn skinny to be a meat eater

    There are vegan bodybuilders. Massive guys with leg-sized arms and all that. As long as you pay careful attention to nutrition (which a bodybuilder would be doing anyway) and get some B12 in a form humans can use (there are no plant sources of that at all, but vegan B12 supplements are made in labs) you can do it. Humans are very adaptable.

    I don`t really need an argument, especially since Angilion has it all covered.
    In my eyes, someone saying that meat-eaters are immoral is baseless.
    Is it drated up that animals are herded into pooty situations and slaughtered in such a way?
    Yes, of course that sucks but I`m not about to abandon my life, live rurally and hunt for my own food to avoid that.
    I`m also not going to cut meat out of my diet because supplying my diet happens to be a business.

    Not to add to the flame war, but a lot of the arguments about vegetarians being unhealthy are based on stereotypes, not reality.

    They`re also based on the reality that a genuinely vegetarian diet (none of this "I`m a vegetarian but I eat fish...and chicken" stuff) requires a lot more knowledge, care and attention than an omnivorous diet and a fairly large number of vegetarians don`t have the knowledge, care and/or attention. In other words, they`re doing it wrong.

    I bet most vegetarians don`t even know what the essential amino acids are, let alone which combinations of plant material they need to ensure they get them all in sufficient quantity. That`s even including the vegetarians who pay attention to their protein intake...which is only enough if you`re eating meat because meat contains all the amino acids in the right proportions.

    To be fair, most people, vegetarian or not, don`t really know how to balance their diet. Maintaining a balanced vegetarian diet isn`t really any more difficult than maintaining a non-vegetarian diet in today`s fast food driven society.

    i.e. Eating meat doesn`t make you healthy.

    I was arguing against it, not for it.

    I could easily show freddyferret tens of thousands of people who could run down a rabbit, deer, etc, without any weapon or trap. I`d just need to point at any large marathon event.

    Many animals can run faster than humans in good physical shape, but only modern horses (which were engineered by humans) can maintain a higher average speed over distance. Even that`s not completely certain - a world class marathon runner could run down any horse.

    But it`s a fair bit less necessary if you`re an omnivore.

    Maintaining a balanced vegetarian diet isn`t really any more difficult than maintaining a non-vegetarian diet in today`s fast food driven society.

    I disagree.

    If you want to get the right amounts of all the necessary amino acids, you need to know what plant material provides which amino acids in what quantities. I just need to eat some meat. All I need to look at is the quantity of protein - I know it`s made up of all the essential amino acids in the right proportions.

    i.e. Eating meat doesn`t make you healthy.

    True, but I wasn`t saying it did. I am saying that eating meat makes it easier to have a healthy diet.

    Although you can get workably close enough with a vegetarian diet with the "different types" rule of thumb,

    My friend Luke saw a squirrel on his porch one day, so he ran outside, chased it down, and caught it with his bare hands. He`s no marathon runner, either, just a stoner who thought it`d be cool to pet a squirrel.

    Oh my god, what an idiot. Plenty of organisms cannot outrun their prey. Consider Venus fly traps. Or spiders. Most parasites have to wait for their hosts to eat them or make contact with them. Detritivores literally have to wait for their prey to die. Even most lions can`t outrun their prey and have to sneak in close and use the element of surprise. Do you think that if a wolf were to catch a deer by surprise, that the wolf would let the deer go because it didn`t "chase it down"? NO!

    What you can`t get is B12. I`m banging on about B12 a bit because a deficiency of that will really mess you up. Slowly and nastily, over years.

    So anyone who is properly vegetarian, i.e. doesn`t eat any animal products, really should eat B12 supplements. You can get vegan ones - B12 is a waste product of some bacteria and not even the most fervent vegan is going to draw the line that far over. You really do need them. There are no plant sources of B12 that humans can use. You eat B12 supplements or you eat dung or you suffer B12 deficiency and B12 deficiency will drat you up badly.

    While eating meat certainly makes it less complicated, I usually laugh at all the fat, unhealthy people eating their hamburgers at McDonalds. My point was that it takes time and knowledge to make healthy choices irrespective of whether you choose to eat meat or not.

    @premierwondr: I never said it was immoral either. All I said was that the appeal to tradition argument doesn`t make sense. And to answer your question, the reason I`m a vegetarian is because I can get my nutrients elsewhere, and yes, I get plenty of them as the supplements I take have an incredible amount of nutrients in them and I eat a lot of soy, and because of that, I feel PERSONALLY, FOR ME, I don`t feel like I need to eat animals

    I respect vegans. If I ever find myself at lunch or dinner with one and see them eating a salad I very polity order 2 orders of whatever meat they have at the restaurant. Then I take one bite out of every one and chuck the rest in the garbage. Just the look of pure joy on the the vegans face makes it all worth it.

    You only get B12 in cereals or soya if someone has added it, unless you`re eating organic crops fertilised by dung and not entirely cleaned...in which case you`re getting it from the dung.

    Vegans don`t use any animal products at all in any way, not just food.

    Full-on vegetarians don`t eat or drink any animal products, so they don`t eat or drink dairy products.

    You`re thinking of lacto-ovo vegetarians, who will eat animals products that don`t directly kill the animal, but not all vegetarians are like that.

    I maintain my point - if you`re not eating animal products and you`re not eating the right type of dung, take B12 supplements.

    she`s under nourished, and humans in general don`t make good meat. Tho we do make a decent fertilizer substitute. Oh and pretty good bait for other predators.

    Labour, alright, sex, excellent (given that it be the only diversion, and a dumbed down morality, humans will "replicate" like rabbits), aggression, also excellent (we`ll go to `war` on anything, including our collective best interests)

    PETA is a corporate fascist`s wet dream, what better method of distraction from the lose of our rights, and freedoms with and increase of exploitation than "animal right" (but I may be mistaken, but isn`t those in the UN Declaration of Universal Rights?)

    "you can not argue that the human body was meant to be an omnivore"

    Actually you can.
    -Our teeth for example are adapt with both carnivorous canines and herbivorous molars.
    -Our closest animal relative is the chimpanzee which is also an omnivore.
    -There is a much supported theory that suggests the appendix was originally used by our ancestors to aid plant digestion (as this vestigial organ is seen in some herbivores such as koalas), the appendix is inactive nowadays which suggests our bodies are no longer adapt to eating solely plant life.
    -Despite some arguments against it our bodies are designed for hunting, being bipedal with forward facing eyes and (considering a healthy person) strong, lithe bodies which are adapt for reaching speed while also being able to climb, crouch etc.
    And as for vegetarians out there, I agree that the way we harvest animals is wrong and goes against our instincts, however, the eating of them is not.

    Despite some arguments against it our bodies are designed for hunting, being bipedal with forward facing eyes and (considering a healthy person) strong, lithe bodies which are adapt for reaching speed while also being able to climb, crouch etc.

    The biggest argument in favour of it is the remarkable efficiency of humans for sustained moderate running speed. We can dump heat better than almost any other animal and we can maintain a moderate run with less effort than almost any other animal. Even the bone structure of our feet is adpated to efficient moderate speed.

    Hardly any of us could do it nowadays, but a fit human can run any animal to death.

    Sure, an antelope can sprint off at 40mph and leave a human far behind...but a human can track it at 10mph and catch up while it`s cooling down, and repeat that until it drops dead from heatstroke.

    I would like to add that the simple fact that we can digest meat indicates that we are omnivores. In fact, if you do away with all meat-based proteins and fats, you will not like the results in any way. We, in point of fact, require it to survive.

    In fact, if you do away with all meat-based proteins and fats, you will not like the results in any way. We, in point of fact, require it to survive.

    In point of fact, you are wrong.

    Humans are highly adaptable omnivores. The only necessary nutrient humans can`t get from a pure herbivore diet is B12 and we can, like many other animals, get that from eating very small amounts of dung with our food or water. Nowadays, we can also get it as a supplement made in a lab/factory.

    Even some animals classed as carnivores can surbive well on an artificial herbivorous diet with supplements. Dogs, for example.

    There are many animals that do genuinely need meat to survive. Cats, for example, will die a very bad death without meat. But not humans, not if they have access to a wide enough range of plant food. Our ancestors couldn`t have done it, but the modern transportation of food makes getting enough variety possible.

    Actually, I`ll be knowledgable. Assuming you`re counting nuts, legumes, etc, as "fruit and veggies". They`re definitely vegetarian.

    It`s more complicated than a good omnivorous diet, but it`s possible as long as you eat the right kind of dung or lab-made B12 supplements.

    There are vegetarian athletes. Full-on vegetarian, i.e. no food or drink from any animal source even if it doesn`t directly kill the animal.

    It`s much simpler if you include eggs and dairy.

    miarty... No protein?

    Protein isn`t necessarily a problem. I`ll go into a bit more detail:

    Humans don`t use protein directly. We use the amino acids that protein is made from. Some we can make ourselves, but some we can only get from food.

    We need all of those in roughly the right proportions. Meat, eggs and dairy provide that straight off, especially meat.

    No plant source does (a handful are quite close) but different plant sources provide the essential amino acids in different quantities. So you can get the right amounts of all the essential amino acids from eating different plant food.

    A simplified example: grains are crap for lysine but legumes are good for it and legumes are crap for tryptophan but grains are good for it. So beans on toast does the job for both those amino acids (and some others). Mix and match knowledgeably over each day and you`re fine for "protein" (i.e. amino acids).

    It`s not that hard if you get into the habit. Humans tend to prefer a variety of food anyway and our bodies have short-term amino acid storage facilities, so you don`t need to get all the essential amino acids in each meal. Roughly over each day will do.

    You could usually do it well enough with just "some of each kind" - some nuts, some legumes, some grains. Cornflakes for breakfast, a handful of nuts for elevenses, vegetarian chilli on rice for lunch...that sort of thing. Just vary the mix - but most people don`t want to eat the same thing every day anyway.

    An odd historical take on this:

    Analysis of bones from Roman gladiators implies that they didn`t eat meat, or at least ate very little meat. These were people whose lives depended on strength and speed. It wasn`t that they were deprived of meat even if they were still slaves - gladiators were expensive big business and if they were slaves then their owners weren`t going to waste the money they`d spent on training. Successful gladiators got the best of everything. There were entire schools of experts devoted to training gladiators - dieticians, personal fitness trainers, martial artists, the works - and huge amounts of money rode on fights. If gladiators were vegetarian, as it seems they were, it was because a vegetarian diet was considered the best for strength and speed and supported by the rather clear measure of whether or not your gladiators were still alive.

    Well, you get odd balls in any group, dontcha.

    "Full-on vegetarian, i.e. no food or drink from any animal source even if it doesn`t directly kill the animal."

    It`s called `Vegan`.

    Yes, theoreticall, it`s possible, but way complicated to find the calcium and protiens in plants. Most Veg-heads eat till their full, like us meaty types do, and don`t get those key things which is why they all look imaciated.

    Bottom line

    _________________________

    Extremism is bad for you. You can`t eat only meat nor only vegies.

    i) Athletes are odd amongst omnivores too.
    ii) The existence of athletes who eat only plant matter proves that it is possible to be strong and fit on plants alone, which was the point.

    I was countering an absolute assertion. Even one counter-example would have been enough.

    It`s called `Vegan`.

    By people who don`t know the difference.

    Yes, theoreticall, it`s possible, but way complicated to find the calcium and protiens in plants.

    No, it isn`t. You just need to educate yourself a little. Unless you live somewhere with limited food supplies, of course. Then it would be difficult, maybe impossible.

    Extremism is bad for you. You can`t eat only meat nor only vegies.

    You might be able to get by on only meat, but you`d need to eat parts of the body that we wouldn`t usually call meat.

    Depending on what you meant by `vegies`:

    No-one is arguing that you can survive on only vegetables.

    or

    The only thing always missing from a diet of only plants is vitamin B12. Everything else can be got quite easily with the variety of food available in a relatively rich country. You have to get B12 from meat, dairy, eggs, the dung of some animals or a lab/factory (it`s a waste product of some bacteria, so it can be made without animals).

    I`m not sure it`s a *bad* point. The idea that calcium intake is an issue for vegetarians (not lacto-ovo vegetarians, just vegetarians) is true, unlike many of the statements made about vegetarianism in this thread. So that makes it a better point than many.

    However, calcium is trivially easy to obtain and a person only needs about 1g of it per day. If a vegetarian doesn`t want to have to factor it into their diet, they can just take a vegetarian calcium supplement.

    "vegetarians : my food poos on your food"
