    Clearly anything in moderation won't many any significant difference (unless, of course, it has food-poisoning of some sort in it, which is again massively more common in meat than any other grub) but the whole point is that a diet is about amount as well as components.

    Thus, vegeterians are as a general rule more healthy than omnivores.

    What's wrong with fortified drinks and supplements?

    Tall claim. One that came instantly to mind is Vit B12. Without meat, the only source is fortified drinks/foods or supplements.
    Oui oui, hopes were aroused as remote areas in India existed where no meat was eaten and the people didn't suffer defficiancy, however the bugs on their food provided them with the B12 required. eww..

    Good on Greg Chappell

    Recently attended 'Super Lawyer' Bruce Wagman speech at the Melbourne Law School about the horrible conditions of farming animals in both the US and Australia. Was a truly confronting experience sitting there and seeing some of the pictures.

    Anyone else read in the past week that a Belgium city Gant I believe is now having a Vegetarian Day each week, Tuesday FTR. Can't imagine how the butchers in the city would agree to this.

    Well that's one place in the world I think I'll never be visiting. Basically if it breathes and it ain't a cow, I'll eat it. I reckon as long as you do a good amount of exercise (I work out min. 5 times a week), eat whatever the hell you want, works for me!

    Guess what, the Vitamin B12 in meat products is produced by....

    ...bacteria. Same way that B12 gets into plant based foods.

    (p.s. I am not a dogmatic vegeterian, do eat white meat once in a while. However, the nutritional and environmental evidence is overwhelming, for those of you who choose to be data driven.)

    The nutrients required for a sense of humour appear, from my own observations, to be lacking in a vegetarian diet.

    Yep, does appear that the SUV driving meat eaters have sucked the planet dry of those ingredients as well. Not much jolly-vitamins (or fuel or climate) left for the others.

    Exhibits a) and b) for the prosecution actually.

    Bizarre equation of meat-eating with disrespect for the environment. Evidence of brains being denied vital nutrients found in the cooked carcasses of cows and chickens IMO...
