It would be forced on me at gun point. I was created with canine teeth and am part of the created food chain. There is never a reason to abuse any food animal. But there is no reason not to be a link in the overall food chain either. I hear tell red meat will kill ya. I guess it got to my grandmother at 93 after have a beef roast every week of her life. Oh well may she RIP. My mother is also the same. She is more decades than I had better tell cause she is still on the highways driving great distances when she gets the urge to travel. After giving up meats once for medical reasons and getting no improvement in health what so ever and actually getting worse I dropped that idea like the plague. I'm a true omnivore eating many fruits, vegetables, and animal tissues. I don't tell anyone else what or when to eat and I deserve the same respect and demand it.

I have been a vegetarian in the past. The reason I stopped was because, basically, I hate vegetables and there wasn't much to eat! LOL

At that time I chose that path due to animal rights issues. If I were ever to return to that type of diet, it would be for that reason.

I love meat. Personally, I think man was intended to eat it. I don't think all of our ancestors, starting with the cave man up to my parents' generation suffered from eating it. Unfortunately, when we started mass producing meat and poultry it became unhealthy for us and not so good for the poor animals either. I'm not crazy about the meat packing industry and if I can, I try to find meat and poultry that is small farm raised vs mass produced. If I were to give up eating meat it would be to protest against the way cattle and poultry are raised moreso from the health benefits.

There is some interesting information out there on the health benefits of grass fed beef (like our ancestors ate). Here's one example I found with a search. Yeah, it's boring but it supports that fact that meat can be very healthy.

Probably for diet/health reasons. Unfortunately most vegetarians I've met look pasty.

Definitely because of animal welfare.

Kudos to you Capt, as I've read many of your posts and it sounds like you're very caring of animal livestock and welfare on your farm or ranch.

I just wish more were as conscientious as you are.
