    Strongly suspect economics rather than awareness will change farming practices eventually. Don't buy that people give enough of a crap yet nor will they in the foreseeable future to effect any serious change in farming practices.

    Sorry Jeevan, I just find sanctimony amusing, and if a small dig produces some, I'm libel to keep digging. I don't really care what people choose to eat, but just as I'll refrain from lecturing you on what I think you should do at your dining table or bedroom, or whatever, please feel free not to talk down to others who don't share your views.

    That said, I love meat, and while I want to have a healthy diet, will never stop eating it.

    Interesting (kinda) thread. But Cricket Chat? Not so much.

    Would you support Nike if they only hired white people, and were openly discriminatory?

    As I said, its an attitude thing. There might be people who didn't care whether blacks could sit at the front of the bus. Those that did, were in everyone else's faces, and protesting. Its the same thing, just on a different scale of seriousness (which again, is an attitude, not a fact).
    Sorry, I meant a brand of shoes other than Nike.

    Err, sorta made my point with the whole Vit B12 thing.

    Anyway, as BoyBrumby said, this is kinda OT so I'm out for now.

    I fail too see what significant point you might have made there.

    To recap, this discussion (to me at least) was mostly about vegeterians being able to sustain a healthy diet and there being significant environmental footprint from too much meat consumption. A secondary point about B12 was brought up, Where it was pointed out that _all_ B12 is made by bacteria - whether accidentally contaminated or naturally occurring or intentionally cultured.

    You presumed that either all vegeterians, or just me , would have to be non-cooked food eating vegans (when perhaps the vast majority of non-meat eaters are lacto-vegeterians or even ovo-lacto-vegeterians, certainly can speak for the Indian vegeterian diet) and proceeded to demolish a hypothesis that no one made on this thread.

    Then you declare victory of some sort. I guess there might have been a point in Don Quixote tilting at them windmills too.

    Now that this discussion has concluded, hope to not run into you again.
    Edit: After a long while, had occasion to add to my ignore list. This thread looks so much better now.

    I think it is healthier to eat meat but then Im no expert.

    On a related note, I was interested to watch yesterday that Roman gladiators were virtually completely vegetarian and ate far less meat than the average Roman citizen. A finding that suprized the experts as they were expecting a high protein, training diet.


    I love the way you post these things so casually Goughy

    Why do you find it stranger that men be veggie than women out of interest?

    I reckon I'd rather give up beer than meat, I'd rather give up sex than meat, I'd rather give up breathing I reckon.
