Looks like the lack of good, cholesterol laden animal protien has again prooved the old addage, "A steak a day, keeps the dumbass away". Please look at your followup and pay close attention to your attack on the grammar of the post to which you are responding. You have misspelled words, neglected to capatilize in the correct places and just generally prooved a point I've tried to make for years: Tree-hugging, anti-nuke, long-haired, liberal college educated vegetarians would be much better served by consuming complete protiens instead of trying to "get it right" by mixing rice and tofu. Have a burger and shut up. It ain't any of your damn business if I like a little (or a lot) of sausage on my pizza!
: I guess someone has been watching too much Charlotte's Web. I know you aren't reading it because your lack if grammatical proficiency indicates that you aint none too gud a reeder.
: Meat eating is good for you hmmmmm what is the meat eating? oh!!! you meant eating meat is good for you. Who told you this?
: animals are treated well on farms. If you think being snatched away from your mother at birth, living in a pen where you cant do more than turn around, watching your friends die while you wait in line to die, having your throat slit and being left to bleed to death (which can take hours) is good treatment well then you win that point.
: The chineese eat VERY little meat. Maybe the "chineese restaurant" down the street has meat in everything but the chineese don't eat that way. Italians eat very little meat as well.
: Vegan restaurants may commit minor health slips but i have yet to find half a mouse in my veggie burger. You should take the time to become educated before you make comment. When you just say things that are obviously false you look like a jackass.
: : 1. Meat eating is good for you.
: : Look at the great cuisines of the world; French, Italian, Chinese: what do they all have in common? They are all based around meat in its many wonderful forms, and have been for as long as anyone can remember.
: : Surely they can’t all be wrong.
: : 2. McDonald's animals are well cared-for.
: : Animals such as cows and pigs would often suffer in the wild a lot more than in captivity. They would be continually on the lookout for predators and suffer from ongoing food and water shortages. McDonald’s, as a large organisation, has probably made mistakes in regard to the treatment of animals, but so has any large abbatoir or farm.
: : 3. McDonald's provides good, cheap food.
: : Look at the basic common food of almost any major culture, and you will find more or less the same basic formula that you find in a McDonald’s hamburger: Carbohydrates, meat, fat and seasonings.
: : A bowl of noodles eaten by a Chinese peasant follows this formula, as does a bowl of spaghetti eaten by an Italian farm laborer or indeed the roast dinner of an English factory worker.
: : As regards health and hygiene; go into the kitchen of even the fanciest restaurant (even a vegan one), and you will occasionally see unhygienic food practices.
