    I agree with you about cruel farming nowadays, fortunately it's not so spread here as in the far west.
    My diet is based mostly on natural meal, I eat both vegetables, both meat since Im trying to maintain a balance in my diet and I also try to make it various(between the limits of natural products). But mostly I like home-made meal. Fresh vegetables straight from my grandmother's garden.

    I personally would like to see the abolition of industrial factory farming slaughter, and a reversion to the old farm method.

    The ancient Vedics as a huge cattle culture (like the Irish for example) did eat beef in the past. As a matter of fact, a certain king (unfortunately, I forgot his name) slaughtered 21,000 cattle for a dinner party. I read it was common and perhaps even obligatory, for people to offer a beef dish to guests as a gesture of hospitality.

    How is there empirical evidence that chili, onions, garlic, and mushrooms alter the senses negatively?

    It's like how grains are prohibited for the one meal on Navratri because of a myth involving Brahma and an Asura... It's folk tradition.

    More pertinent however, I find that vegetarianism is a viable diet and that humans don't need any foreign supplements.

    For example, the Mongols lived on a diet of mare's milk and vegetables; as the empire expanded the nobility became avowed carnivores (not to mention gluttonous alcoholics) thus leading to health problems, infertility, and early death.

    Interestingly enough, the Mongols have the highest instance of any ethnic group of lactose intolerance... Why I have no idea.
    I might have an answer for you on the lactose intolerance issue. The Mongols were originally NOT ethnically "mongolian" (a terrible misnomer!), but Caucasian/Circassians. After gaining an empire, it was common for Mongol warriors to bring ethnic Chinese concubines back to traditional Mongol territory. These men would then send out their (half-breed) sons to rule and conquer, and they too would bring back numerous Chinese concubines. What happened was an extreme case of genetic swamping--from fierce warriors to "peaceful Buddhists" in a scant few generations (my colleague that teaches AP Euro supplied most of that info). As the east Asians are high-lactose-intolerant populations, that explains the modern lactose intolerance of Mongolian populations.

If some people decide to do so, it is their business, but they should not push their beliefs on others.

    I find all the vegan and vegetarian holier than thou talk about living beings ridiculous since they do consome living beings - what do you think plants are? Even more ridiculous when they consume fish and seafood while rejecting other meat. If they do it for other reasons like a "healthier" diet without fat I do not judge them however. I am for animal rights myself and against torture and unnecessary cruelty, but animals are part of the natural cycle and some are meant to be someone's food.
    Excellent points. A few years ago there was a lot of interest in the "Paleolithic Diet" wherein one ate only food we evolved on, nuts, berries, lean meat, fowl and fish, was said to be quite healthful. Which did NOT include farm-grown items which need to be cooked, like starchy potatos for instance.

    Although I try to go easy on the red meat, seems to make me a bit lethargic, turkey and chicken seem to agree with me more.

    Vegan diets can be healthy but they must be done correctly. Same as any unusual diet like the Paleolithic diet fad.
