Btw every day I walk in the woods and I look around and think about what I would eat, where I live there is precious little if you exclude animals/fish. There are acorns and really the only native fruit is manzanita berries. There are of course wild greens and mushrooms but not enough to sustain a body.
Life is death. We all take turns. It's sacred to eat during our turn and be eaten when our turn is over. RichMahogany.
You've got the essential fatty acid starved brain rantings of a vegan down perfectly. Bravo to you!
Apathy is tyranny's greatest ally.
Anyway, using animal matter to satisfy requirements for essential nutrients other than energy, and plant sources primarily for energy, is a dietary strategy compatible with hominoid gut anatomy and digestive kinetics. The adaptation of eating meat for humans was probably the sole reason humans evolved as they did(mothers weaned their children earlier), and they created a process with increased dependence on technology and learned skills (manufacture and use of stone tools and hunting implements, techniques of food preparation) as well as social skills (cooperative hunting, division of labor, food sharing, a long period of offspring provisioning) that probably took place over a period of 2.5 million or more years, which explains a lot about modern human behavioral patterns.
I'd rather be a vegetarian than a carnivore though, but fortunately we're omnivores.
