That’s amusing. I have a biotech firm. I’m well versed in the chemistry, but you’ll read whatever it is you want to see and refuse to hear otherwise.
What I’ve said, countless times, is that the human body does less work, and can more readily absorb and use animal protein, rather than to piece complete proteins together from plant matter. Many of the vegan sources of sphingloid fatty acids have been shown to be either not or very low in bioavailability and absorption. Soy based compounds have a number of concerning side effects including uptaking a great deal of aluminum from the soil. I know this because I also have shares in an advanced farming company.
I’ve said before and I will say it again—your diet is your business. Your ethics and morals are yours. What I object to is the vilification of those who either must eat meat because of significant health issues, or who simply wish to. There is no higher power regulating anything, and if a man chooses to take on the burden of eating an animal, then let him do so. You can have your discipline and you can preach your rhetoric, but don’t call it a perfect healthy diet, because it isn’t. Even other primates aat insects and small animals. They even kill and eat other tribes of primates. All diets have consequences, so don’t deny yours, because that makes you a hypocrite not an educator.
I’m not human. I absolve myself from this discussion. Have what you have and keep it to yourself, but don’t argue your position on the platform I’ve created, because it’s easy pickings.
If you have a problem with eating meat, then you need to find another writer to follow.
I don’t know how many times I have to say this: I have vegan readers. Ask them if I harass them about it. I do not care what you eat. If anything my work shows I have a tremendous diversity of recipes, including vegan. I’ve said many times that if your Veganism is a personal choice based in morals and ethics, then I applaud you and commend you for your discipline. If anything my work also demonstrates that I struggle with the consequences of my diet on a regular basis. And so coming to me and claiming some sort of elite status or making out as if this is a casual engagement or that I am unethical or misinformed about food and nutrition, proves to me that you haven’t read my materials. You simply crossed paths with me, did a bit of snooping, and then got on your high horse.
I also eat horses, so take your pontification and walk.
I eat everything and I accept those consequences, because I am old enough and self possessed enough to not get sappy about the idea of the sacredness of life. Until humans can examine their other crimes, there’s almost no point in debating this. The same people who preach the morality of veganism, are the same ones who overlook that there are countless cultures that rely on meat, countless people who cannot live without it, countless cultures who hunt as part of their identity. There’s also issues of starvation world wide, about which you are doing nothing.
I however, am putting my money where my mouth is. I support sustainable farming. I am working towards ending starvation. I also embrace all cultures including the hunters. I don’t choose to demonize people who prefer to eat meat. I’m in no position to ever judge any man on his eating.
I can however, judge him on his hypocrisy.
Vegans are welcome to my experiment, but just as I admonish the religious for attempting to recruit from my readership, I’ll admonish you to keep vegan attack rhetoric off my page. So don’t come here if you have a difficulty.
Save me the time and trouble of dealing with you.
