If it's true I may go completely vegetarian instead of pescetarian.

They say that all the health risks from the heavy metals in sea life out weigh the benefits of omega-3s and the such.

Whatever makes you happy, but a good steak is irreplaceable.

I don't like fish, just salmon and tuna. The rest tastes nasy.

But really its like the healthiest meat you can eat, and even if it wasn't just realize the health nuts change whats healthy all the time. Don't listen to them, just eat what makes you happy, because stress is horrible for your health, and your life.

If you can maintain a veggie life style and it makes you happy and its for ethical reasons and you find ways not to be a mega skinny unhealthy stick then power to you, but thats not most cases.

Fish aren't as sentient and they aren't tortured as much in the process. But I am pescetarian because I was under the impression that it was the best possible diet.

I do. Fish for the most part, are wild, they have a chance at survival, they have a normal life, and all that. Its like any normal animal going and getting it. Its not like caging chickens and cown in small areas and slaughtering them.

I don't really like how fishing hooks cut into their mouths, or how they are sufficating when they are killed, but its more ethical then how normal animals would kill them, so its not really that bad.

I just can't be a part of it.

You can't spend your time on Earth worrying about what the healthiest diet plan should be or what ethical conduct should be enforced.

Honestly, it is more healthy to include meats in your diet.

Nothing wrong with lean, grilled chicken.

Ugh, stop telling me to eat what makes me happy. Eating healthy will make me happy. I'm asking for something to support either side of the argument on whether the risks out-way the benefits or not.

So if I raised a chicken, and the chicken was free ranged, fed what it wanted, treated right, then I killed ethnically, would you eat it?

Actually stressing too much about what you eat can lead to an early death and unhealthiness.

Fish is healthy, but its like the egg debate about whether its good or bad or whatever, its prolly just for marketing.

No..this life is the only one I have and you completely based that meat assertion on the traditional anti-vegetarian stupidity of society which you've been told and not looked into at all and not any empirical evidence. I've done the research, being vegetarian is not only better but MUCH MUCH better.

Sure. i'm for free range, but I could never go hunting, or see the dead animal in animal looking form. Like one of my friends in order to eat meat I have to convince myself it actually grows in the store or whatever, that no animals are involved, cause it just feels wrong for me to eat an animal, no matter how well treated they are. That said I love eating meat.

You're one of those people who just want to fight everyone else on anything for the mere pleasure of considering yourself a "non-conformist." What you don't realize is that, when it comes down to it, we are animals. Animals eat other animals, other meat. Natural cycle of life, diet, survival, etc. Nothing wrong with eating meat.

We cannot apply rights, conduct, morality, etc. to sub-species as much as you like. As humans, we have developed all of those on our own mental processes; they only apply to us.

Huh? Btw chicken is my fave ever. For months I obsessed about the chicken strip sandwich at Sonic, before that it was Dairy Queen chicken strips, Jack in the Box chicken strips, and before any of those it was the KFC snacker.

Chicken I hate: Church's chicken.
