    I have had alligator...don't ask...college thing, a lot of beer and we were in the South eyes: It actually wasn't bad from what I can remember (which wasn't a lot )

    But now that I am getting older and wiser, I agree with the latter group that you need meat for the protein and the fatty acid that is in fish. I have never tried vegetarianism myself...I like chicken and fish and a little red meat now and then too much to give it up. I have been for years following the American Heart Associtaion diet just because I have seen what too much of a good thing(meat included) does to a person when they get to be 50, 60, or 70 years. I do not want bypass surgery...too brutal :eek

    I understand all the arguments for going vegetarian but I am a carnivore and will remain a carnivore.

    I don't understand those arguments, it's like they come from an NGO book (is that the way you call UNICEF and cie in English?) You know, the bunch of pro-coloureds organisms which make cry weak Europeans and culpabilise them with arguments like "non-whites don't have enough food", "they are starving and die", "you whites are partly responsibles for..." blah blah... :thumbsdow

    It is Weg, Non Governmental Organisations. The groups of liberal upper classes who get tax-free status for whining about injustice.

    The article was much too sensational and non-academic (did not offer specific sources for its claims, or scientific references to other claims) for it to do me any good.

    And the starving kids in Africa are a good thing for our environment, since we are already overpopulated, the last thing we need is more people and an even greater forced sense of moral obligation to help those who mostly experience a dislike for us. The survival and future of man is measured in quality not quantity, and whoever thinks everyone in the world can exist on equal levels of planetary accommodation is a fool.

    The extensive use of land I am sympathetic to, however, less population would solve this, as well as not a heavily meat centered diet. That is, one can be a carnivore without having 10 steaks a day. Moderation, and making sure our world is taken care of is the key.

    Yes! I guess I'm not the only horrible unfeeling n-word out there! I've been really puzzled that all these experts, economists, world leaders etc. just don't seem to get that "equality" won't work! I'm really not that brilliant! LOL, I've just come across the term "environmental justice", basically environmental racism, "minorities" being more affected by pollution etc.! I almost spit laughing. I swear, the panic over "racism" is reaching a fevered pitch. Someone is really really scared of the truth! And the ironic thing is the more they rub peoples noses in it the more "real" racists they are creating!

    Sometimes the greatest act of love is to let someone go and sometimes even help it on it's way.
    What is "natural" is not always "enjoyable" and certainly it's rarely pretty and easy.

    SO TRUE ! Too bad few people feel the way you and I do. We can blame the xtians for so much of this( ie...Feed the Children, Feed the Jews and so on...)
