  • i may be biased though as i'm a vegan

  • Save the animals, environment, and your health go vegan.

  • Actually, everyone should go vegan. Check out this link. You won't regret it. You will learn the whole truth about compassion, and somewhat about health and feasibility on that. The thing is that afterwards, you must search online to see what plants effectively replace all of those essential nutrients. So the videos to check out is the longest vegan main speech, and all of the Q&As. Also, read as much as possible from the website. adaptt.org

  • I couldn't care less about the animals: but I'm thinking long term here. You may just now be finding out about this, but there is a lot of people on Earth, like 7.4 billion a lot. Relatively soon, we're gonna start running out of space. Domesticated animals take up more space than crops and produce less food: veganism is the way of the future. There are indeed certain benefits to eating meat on occasion, but it's nothing that fish, nuts, and beans can't supply for us.

  • Shouldn't be forced but it is better.

  • No. Just no.

  • Nazi Vegans to the left.

  • No. The healthiest diet is a Mediterranean diet, which still features meat. Balanced meat eating is healthy. Humans are omnivores not herbivores. Veganism is unhealthy: https://authoritynutrition.com/top-5-reasons-why-vegan-diets-are-a-terrible-idea/ http://chriskresser.com/why-you-should-think-twice-about-vegetarian-and-vegan-diets/ http://paleoleap.com/vegetarianism-bad-environment/ Other animals eat animals as well, yet none of these vegans is trying to stop them. Also, if everyone had to be a vegan, some farm animal breeds would finish up becoming extinct. Species such as Belgian Blue -a beef breed- cannot reproduce or give birth naturally. Females require cesareans and can only have up to six calves in their lifetime. This breed wouldn't survive in the wild. Dairy cows could also see a similar problem, due to the size of their udders, they suffer enormously from mastitis, they physically wouldn't be able to walk significant distances without suffering pain and potential physical damage. Dairy cattle would die painfully after their utters ruptured. Sheep would die out during summer time due to the immense heat and their huge amount of wool. Bees would possibly become extinct as well, which might have backlash on every single animal, since they pollinate plants.

  • voting no just to piss off the idiotic creater of this biased poll

  • Animals eat other animals, but why isn't that a problem? Plants are also living things and we eat plants. Veganism isn't the healthiest either, considering how many types of meat can be quite healthy.

  • Though veganism is a respectable lifestyle and is very difficult to do, there is absolutely no reason for every person in first world countries to go vegan. People are allowed to do whatever they want with their life and their bodies; that's one of the reasons first world countries are, well, first world countries.

  • I eat dogs.

  • Nice strawman on that picture.

  • Mmmmmm Hamburgers! My husband and I are starting a farm.... to raise animals humanely.... so.... no, as long as you know where your meat is coming from. I don't approve of how most giant farm corporations are so inhumane with the animals, and I understand why people avoid animal products. I like my animals to be happy up until the day they die.

  • So stupid. Our bodies are fit to eat meat, I'm going to eat meat.

Though the title i do not believe in may i state that being an omnivore myself a mixed diet with the protein of which meat provides is good for the body. A lack of this is had for the average persons bodily functions.

Dis loaded question, though. Vegans are people who made a choice to not eat glorious meat. They're just losing out is all.

I love dogs . . . Seasoned with salt and pepper.

@NewLifeChristian Thanks for revealing that you're Chinese, fake American.

@triangle, isn't it Koreans that are supposed to be into eating dogs?
triangle.128k says2016-08-03T19:19:53.5707218Z
@Black-Jesus The world is emptier than you think. The population issue is only a problem in 3rd world countries, but there's plenty of space in the US to build more cities.

@Black-Jesus eh, they're all Asian; who cares?
Black-Jesus says2016-08-03T19:22:49.9031665Z
I'm not saying it's a problem now. I'm saying that it will be. I'm just saying that every population has a cap, and we keep inventing things to expand ours, but what do we do when it becomes necessary for everyone to become vegan to preserve agricultural land?
Black-Jesus says2016-08-03T19:23:43.3647092Z
Ahh-- Chinese, Japanese, dirty knees, look at these
NewLifeChristian says2016-08-03T19:25:18.1661639Z
@triangle.128k Nope, I'm American.
triangle.128k says2016-08-03T19:27:21.9077435Z
@Black-Jesus We aren't going to run out of agricultural land, because there's more than enough. If overpopulation is to become a serious issue in the future, we could just pressure Africa and India to control their population growth the same way China did. Also, meat carries out plenty of health benefits if you eat it. Veganism is just a stupid movement based around no reasoning, just "omg think of the ded animals!"

Technology also improves to yield higher meat production. Essentially, improving agricultural technology and keeping open farms is the best option we have.
Black-Jesus says2016-08-03T19:34:13.5307487Z
@triangle, I doubt telling Africa and India to control their population will actually get them to control their population. Like I said, it's not a problem now, but it perceivably could be and no one knows what could happen. And also like I said, there are health benefits to meat, but nothing we can't glean from fish, nuts and beans. I don't know about any actual statistics so take this with a grain of salt, but personally, most of the vegans I've met are vegans for health reasons instead of ethical issues.

But muh fried chicken!?
triangle.128k says2016-08-03T20:05:54.8709367Z
On a serious note, this is just speculation and is probably very unlikely. As long as people like the taste of meat, people won't halt the production. Technology improvements will increase our meat yield and we will continue eating it.
