Arguments against vegetariansim
« on: July 28, 2011, 05:02:11 am »
Can anyone post links to articles that disprove that vegetarianism is the healthier lifestyle?  Got a friend who strongly believes meat is bad for health.

Cause and effect are distant in time and space in complex systems, while at the same time there’s a tendency to look for causes near the events sought to be explained. Time delays in feedback in systems result in the condition where the long-run response of a system to an action is often different from its short-run response. — Ronald J. Ziegler

This site has a bunch of anti-vegetarian studies:

Have you tried searching "vegetarian" or "vegan" in this forum?

Co - the best thing is to agree - because meat the way it is generally raised in this country and cooked IS bad for you. That's the best way to start. By agreeing.

Then educate them about how cows are fed soy and grains which make them grow all sorts of nasty bacteria that isn't natural to them and shot up with hormones and antibiotics so that they can be genetically mutated until they can barely live and then put onto feed lots where they live a horrible existence and then the meat has to be cooked just so that it doesn't kill us. This will open them up, because a vegetarian will be nodding their head up and down now.

Then talk to them about grass-fed animals, what a good life healthy life they lead and how they live and die. Tell them there ARE no studies of eating these kind of animals or especially eating them the way that our ancestors did and thrived on for millions of years - raw and natural. Tell them that they are right and that until people wise up and eat meat the way it CAN be healthy, that they shouldn't be eating it at all.

And then slip in that they also shouldn't be eating irradiated, pesticide ridden, cooked vegetables either.

That ought to give your friend something to think about.  ;)

Dorothy according to this

There are studies. Others have mentioned studies including references to byproducts of cooking such as AGEs etc (Someone who knows more can add to this... Tyler)
Cheers
