    This comment is so daft that it's hardly worth replying to:

    1. Evolution tends to happen over long periods of time; i.e. hundreds if not thousands of years.
    2. Technology has largely sheltered people from the negative effects of a vegetarian diet.

    Think before you post.

    Vegetables are the only nutritive source I can kind of trust now. The world has no longer got healthy food of any sort anymore. Everything we eat is poison, we just have to find the right combination that keeps us alive longer...
    I feel like everything is unhealthy, I dream of unhealthy food. This is depressing. Help.

    Then why do dieticians recommend consuming some animal protein every day?

    My point was not that vegetarian diets were unhealthy per se, but that they don't provide an adequate nutrient profile without supplementation and/or lots and lots of meals.

    Also, don't forget, Islam cares for the treatment of animals, too, it has its own rituals to ensure animals are treated as humanely as possible prior to death. Think about what Halal meat means.

    Dude, I never said we shouldn’t care, WE MUST.
    But not eating a certain type of food is not and never will be the solution of this problem!!

    As I said before, it's not a solution although it does bring attention to it. Personally, with all my knowledge of the meat industry, I want nothing to do with it so I've opted out of consuming their products. I'm uncomfortable knowing what I eat has been tortured to death, why support it? I'll eat wholesome food that doesn't contribute to the meat industry finances.

    Furthermore, I don't understand why you're judging people for a choice they make that does not impact you. It's hypocritical to judge vegetarians/vegans but not religious groups, there's not much difference behind the motivations not to consume meat.

    I’m not judging vegetarians.
    I judged vegetarianism, and it’s checkmate.

    This is selective reasoning, and ignores the vast number of people who live a lifetime or longer than expected on a vegetarian or vegan diet. We have manipulated the world in order to destroy it, and we can, by all intents and purposes, lice heathily on vegetarian diets or vegan diets, because we have the science for it. Eating meat was an act of desperation when things were rough, and of course during starvation, I wouldn't deny anyone the consumption of another mammal. But as a whole, eating animal products now is pretty much comically out of control, so inflated compared to a hundred years ago, giving us lots of heart disease, cancer, air and water pollution, animal cruelty, obesity and "autoimmune disorders" leading to unexplained pain, intensified PMS symptoms, increased pain in diseases like diabetes and arthritis, and a plethora of unexpected consequences.

    Meat and dairy products were status of the aristocratic sort who died of intestinal blockage, not the hardy peasants doing farm work. During Nazi invasion pre and during WWII, one population of European people decreased significantly in heart disease because of lack of access to animal protein.

    People have twisted things into a bizarre starvation mentality that we are far from, but we are inflicting horrific damage on the earth and to other human beings due to over consumption of animal products. It's not just processed food, factory farming is destroying people.

    You are incorrect. Everyone becoming vegan today would stop deforestation, decrease air and water pollution, increase the supply of food so that the entire seven billion of the world could eat adequately, as well as decreasing obesity, heart disease and cancer.
