Very smart kid.

Good to see that the next generation does not just accept what the world says w/o doubts and has no problem questioning prevailing wisdon.

Re: 3 year old explains why he doesn't want to eat meat

Stupid vegetarians think they are somehow superior to meat eaters,purer and moralistic.
Every vegetarian I know has gone through health problems(mainly hormonal) caused by the lack of vital nutrients found in animal food.

Re: 3 year old explains why he doesn't want to eat meat

Vegetarians are an anomaly: allowing morals and ethics to get in the way of your diet is really weak. We are stronger therefore we can farm the brainless cattle for meat. Simple as that.

That's just how everyone should feel, Amber.

Personally, I cannot stop eating meat for a longer while. If I miss meat portions for more than a week, I get sick whatever I eat in its stead.

i think u can get the protion u will be missed in other ways, i think It has a psychological effect.

but if u want to eat then u should, ppl should let others believe and do whatever they want, its a free choice.

i wont tell my bf, kids, siblings not to eat meat and bi will never deprive them such a thing

Yeah, it's mostly psychological, but it's also because I cannot get fat with my current metabolism. I burn a lot of calories each day, because I cannot stand in one place not even with a desk job like that of being a programmer. I always try running when going to a destination, and being a vegetarian just doesn't work for me.

Obviously, everyone is free to choose whatever they want to eat when they want to eat it and however the food suits their body. The problem is when going to the extremes and eating something may be damaging to health.

That's what it look liked to me as well. It looks a bit staged.

very scientific to base it on your biased personal subjective experience and urban myths. these people just do not know how to proper eat, simply as that. If you just eat yogurt and salad..... There are enough studies out there showing that meat can cause various health problems and that a vegetarian diet is more healthy.

entirely wrong. Producing meat needs about 10 times more resources then producing the some amount of calories and proteins in plants. simply because animals need vegetarian calories and protein to build themselves and since their losing energy by for example walking around only 10 % goes into their meat. Large areas are used to produce animal feed. if those fields were used for producing human vegetarian food we could easily feed the starving.

Re: 3 year old explains why he doesn't want to eat meat

The kid is a boss.

I'd like to start saying something about the way vegetarians and vegetarianism are perceived and treated in Western societies. So far in this thread, the only vegetarian who posted declared to respect whatever decision anybody else takes and whatever they decide to eat.

Interestingly, even before she made these remarks, in the first six posts of the thread, vegetarians had already been defined as stupid, thinking they are superior, purer and more moral than meat eaters, unhealthy, an anomaly and weak, while vegetarianism was defined as a machination.

I rest my case.

As to the matter at hand: there are many definitions of morality, but whatever definition of morality you choose, it has to do with maximising well-being and minimising suffering. It is obvious that, just as homo sapiens can experience pain and suffering, other animal species can too. If we admit it is wrong to cause a human being to suffer, there is no reason not to admit that it is wrong to cause another conscious living being to suffer as well. Limiting our moral duties to those within our own species is a form of discrimination, no different than litiming our moral duties to those within our own race or to those within our own religion.

And we all know that, really. Anyone who says there is nothing wrong with torturing a small kitten to death will be qualified as a sociopath. And yet, every day millions of animals live and die in the most abhorrent conditions, going through unspeakable pains and not knowing what it is to see the light of the sun until the moment they are taken to the slaughterhouse.

We do not need meat to survive. A vegetarian diet has long been proved to be at least as healthy as a low-meat diet, and healthier than the standard Western diet, rich in red meat.

None of us can fulfill all their moral duties, but we can do what we can.

As opposed to you, the epitome of class and eloquence.

Based on the evidence contained in dozens of scientific articles, he World Health Organisation has long included the vegetarian diet in their list of healthy, recommendable diets.

Being healthy without eating meat is actually not that hard. Even vegans, those who refrain from all animal products completely, can do things like becoming the first person to win six World Championships of the hardest physical test in the world..

As a matter of fact, most of the world vegetarians live in third world countries.

Meat-eating is a luxury of the first world. Meat is a costly, inefficient way of producing nutrients. Meat itself is rich in protein, but the loss of calories that result from feeding grains to animals instead of directly to humans represents the annual calory needs of more than 3.5 billion people (source: UN Environmental Program).

This is the "because we can" argument. It has been used before, many times. It was used, for instance, by the conquistadors who looted, murdered and plundered all over the Americas, wiping out entire civilisations and killing tens of millions of people, "because they could".

I'm not sure you'll pay attention to this, but cattle are far from being brainless. In fact, we are discovering they are more intelligent and sensitive than we previously thought.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).
