    It makes me laugh when a vegan brings up that a cow eats grass and is big and strong so we should do the same thing.

    They have no idea that a cow needs four stomach to be able to digest grass also in the third – forth stomach the digestion is done by microbes [small animals] which the cow uses as nourishment in reality cows are microbe eaters which is meat. Sorry vegan you don’t know about animals with four stomachs.

    Veganism is a cult like fad that want everyone to believe they have found the garden of health and longevity. Reality is the longest living people live in what they call the blue zones around the world are all omnivorous so they eat meat.

    I wouldn't lump all vegans into one basket @Martin Alonzo. There are many reasons why some don't eat meat.

    My sister is vegan and it's not because she's an animal lover, or thinks it's healthier, etc. she just has issues with how it looks raw and texture issues when cooked.

    She's been like that since she was a child.

    Typical. Hardly a cult. While I do know there are jerk vegans out there form personal experience, there are also a lot of unassuming quiet people who identify as vegan and plant based and would never fit the stereotype. They are out there. You may have met them and didn't even know it.

    As far as what comes from what, no there are too many products made including medication and medical needs that can't be avoided. Making a choice to eat beef or something from plants is a easy choice IMO. Many items are being manufactured not using these animal products. I recently gave up palm oil and it's been easy except I miss Earth Balance margarine. I like Florida Crystals natural sugar. Many items are more and more available in regular stores.

    Vitamins, cosmetics, soap, shampoo, hair care items all easy to find.

    But lets face it, humans exist and destroy no matter what.

    I'll stay out of this thread. There is no use. The pups are at least cute. I'm pro pet, meat eaters or not. I wouldn't exist without my cats.

    All the vegans that I have ever met look gaunt and hollow eyed.

    My sister gets enough protein from other sources. I think vegans know what they're doing for the most part.

    Hey, guys, we all need to be considerate of Kitty Carmel (our resident Vegan), because what is meant as humor might not seem that way from Kitty’s point of view.
    We are all different, and need to be gentle with one another; and I am sure that no one meant to upset you, @Kitty Carmel .

    YOU DO WHAT YOU THINK IS RIGHT KITTY - No one here is criticising you, but as you say there are some jerk vegans out there.
