Random Topics - Vegetarianism

Vegetarianism is the exclusion of meat from one's diet. Vegetarianism is not the exclusion of all animal products from the diet; some vegetarians will eat eggs, milk, and/or honey. Some vegetarians may limit meat intake to certain types, such as fish or poultry. The exclusion of all animal products, food or not, is Veganism. People go vegetarian for many reasons, including religion, ethics, and health. There is a chance that a vegetarian will not get enough vitamins or minerals in their diets, but this can be countered with dietary supplements.

1 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rgym6v9_05I | Part of me likes to think that this is more of the Westernised reasoning than anything. Ditto veganism. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on September 21, 2013, 9:15 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 If people don't want to eat meat, that's their decision. Just don't try to convert me on your ideals, as well. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on October 21, 2012, 11:27 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Gee, if that cat owner didn't want to feed their pet meat, why didn't he/she get a herbivore pet like a bird instead of a carniverous one? That's just so sad that the poor cat went blind (and a good illustration of why I had to quit watching that show)! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 7, 2011, 3:09 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

5 What Robert and Travalton said really shows it all. It is one thing to enforce the vegetarian/vegan behaviours on humans (to an extent, some nations' people would starve severely in that regard), but to challenge mother nature? Another example of how the extreme greenies don't really care for animals, just that their philosophy is followed by and by. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on May 7, 2011, 7:42 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
6 I remember seeing an episode of that Animal Cops show where they busted some people that were doing that to their animals. The cat hat gone blind from taurine depletion. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on May 6, 2011, 10:24 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 Some Vegans/vegetarians really do force their diets onto their pets. A cat cannot survive on a vegetarian diet, much less a vegan one. They are obligate carnivores and need meat. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 6, 2011, 2:18 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
8 I've heard of vegetarians who have attempted to train their dogs and cats to be vegetarians too. (It almost sounds like an urban myth, but I have no problem believing it; fanatics tend not to have a firm grasp on reality.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 6, 2011, 5:19 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
9 They claim that meat eaters kill living things. But wait, aren't plants living things too? Hypocrites. Plus most vegetarians I know are fat and one of them lost her sex drive. -- Submitted By: (Mr.Zimpy) on February 6, 2011, 4:58 pm - (4 votes) - Login to Vote
10 I don't mind vegetarians and vegans as long as they don't attempt to shove their "perfect" diet down my throat. If they stay off my back over my food choices, I'm cool with them. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on May 21, 2010, 2:06 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote

14 Vegetarianism, when done properly, is every bit as healthy as an omnivorous diet (when that's done properly as well). The problems come about when people do it improperly and don't get enough of nutrients such as iron, protein and calcium, and when they become self-righteous jerks. Most vegetarians are pretty good, though, and choose the lifestyle for a variety a reasons. Just don't confuse vegetarianism with veganism. Vegetarians come in all different flavors, from just not eating meat to refusing to eat anything with a face. Vegans don't eat meat or any animal products/by-products. In either case, the change should be gradual to prevent your body from going into shock and you should get advice from either a doctor or a nutritionist on how to meet all of your body's nutritional needs without eating meat. -- Submitted By: (Maskdt) on January 5, 2010, 4:23 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
15 I'm not a vegetarian & don't see a problem with it in general, but some vegetarians are in the same camp as those co-workers or people you meet on the street who **constantly** announce that they & their family don't have a TV in their home. I'm happy for you... Now, move on to the next subject. Please! -- Submitted By: (samhokum) on October 26, 2009, 9:33 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
16 All you got to do is go into one of them Arby's and order their roast beef sandwich. Then check out the look on your face when they be giving you a pile of gray meat on a bun.You be going vegetarian in no time. If that dont work then try growing up with a Mama who insist on going to Jack in the box and drive home with her with the windows up on the famuily car and just see if you dont be passing out from them toxic meat fumes.I try to go vegan for a while but the weight dont come off like they say. -- Submitted By: (shanequia) on September 16, 2009, 9:49 am - (-2 votes) - Login to Vote
17 I suspect that what really gets people in a knot is not vegetarians per se, but rather *sanctimonious* vegetarians - those who feel that their eating habits make them morally superior. I have no problem with people who choose a vegetarian diet - there are two in my immediate family, and thus most family meals/cooking are organized to accomodate this. However, both of these people are vegetarians for dietary reasons, because they found eating meat upset their digestion. As a result, they have no problems with others who choose to eat meat. Because of these circumstances, I eat a fair amount of vegetarian food (often, it's a waste of time to prepare two dishes versus one) and I have no problem with it - good vegetarian cooking is the same as any other kind of cooking. I suspect that the average North American would probably be better off (from a dietary point of view) eating somewhat less meat than they currently do. But smug vegetarians trumpeting their supposed moral superiority and expressing their outrage against meat eaters isn't going to accomplish this. -- Submitted By: (Eugene) on September 10, 2009, 6:30 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
18 Shouldn't everyone decide for himself what he wants to eat? As long as it is healthy, what's the problem? (in my case, the doctor even ordered me to eat meat after an illness which weakened my immune systeme for a long time) And no, I don't like to see the inner working of a slaughter house...but I don't want to see what crawled over the vegetables on the field either. Or read about the posion which may or may not be in my food. Should I stop eating now? -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on September 9, 2009, 7:01 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

20 I'm all for eating healthy and if folks can actually have a balanced diet without including meat, good for them and I have to admit that I don't eat nearly as much meat as I did in the past. However; I don't like being told that somehow my dietary choices are immoral if I eat 'anything with eyes'. Does that mean those who choose to be intollerant vegetarians themselves don't eat POTATOES?! Besides, if one wants to get technical, there's evidence that plants feel stress when harvested so if folks don't want toworry about guilt over that , it looks as though they'd better eat nothing but lint! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 9, 2009, 11:09 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
