That's pretty much the standard PETA argument. I worked for aqi, and I have also delivered the live animals. Unless it's the amount of blood that bothers you, seeing it done won't change anything. They are killed painlessly and humanely. On the health front, Vegans are more likely to suffer from malnutrition related diseases and live a shorter average lifespan than omnivoires. By all means, go organic, it's better than regular, chemical loaded foods, but arguing against cheese, which no animal w

Please direct me to said study showing vegans live shorter lives... Because everything I've read (actual medical studies btw) vegans live on average 10 years longer then omnivores. Also, you DO know how milk is made right? The cow has to be kept pregnant and having calves.. Where to you think male calves go? Yup, into burgers or veal. Eggs are ok though, provided they are pastured. A vegan diet isn't for everyone obviously. Hell I don't even quite follow one. However eating meat daily is actuall

Damn, a vegan diet is brutal. I was gonna justify it by suggesting it might be that op has some health issue but even then vegan seems like overkill. Assuming youre healthy, I would say just have a KFC affair while you "work late"

Becoming a vegan can be very dangerous because the body needs certain amino acids that can only be derived from meat or alternatives like eggs or fish. A vegetarian on the other hand gets all the necessary amino acids.

Actually if you are vegan and eat seaweed and duckweed you can be perfectly healthy with no animal products. Personally I like my farm fresh pastured eggs from my pet chickens so I'm not vegan... But it is possible if you know what you are doing.

A good plant-based diet is actually proven to be healthier than a meaty diet. It is more difficult to eat a healthy vegan diet, but it's absolutely achievable. I think the key thing is that if you don't put any effort into planning your meals and figuring out where you're getting your nutrients from, then you'll probably be unhealthy. That applies to all diets - omnivorous, vegetarian, vegan etc.

Where are you getting your information? A vegan diet lacks a collection of amino acids and complex proteins, found only in animals, that our body needs. All sources of protein are not equal. Unless a vegan uses chemical supplements they will in time develop mental and physical ailments from the deficiencies. On a side note, try googling vegan lifespan and you will find out that every vegan's favorite fact is in fact a lie.

102, That's bad science, I hope you aren't a professional nutritionist or dietitian otherwise I feel extremely bad for your patients. Stop referencing half truths, you may not like the vegan diet but that doesn't mean you should be lying by omission. For those who don't know, you can get all amino acids on a vegan diet by combining your sources or consuming soy products.

Look at the symptoms. His new "diet" is seriously unbalanced and his body is telling him he NEEDS the missing nutrients. Trying to adjust to that is setting hinself up for health problems and early death.

He might be 400 pounds and on the verge of a heart attack and any symptoms just the removal of toxic food. This guy just wants sympathy without giving any information. Sorry, you probably have health issues she was trying to correct. You even agreed to do it. No one agrees to that without need. Conclusion: it's your fault!
