I don't think it is immoral to eat meat.
I do think animal cruelty is immoral.
I do not think veganism will reduce the demand for animal products sufficiently to warrant a change in industry practices.
I think if it did reduce demand significantly, we would merely see a reduced supply of animal products produced by the same cruel means.

It seems like a useless exercise. If you really want to fight cruelty, you vote with your wallet by buying only from producers whose practice meet your ethical standards. That way, you still eat meat and use animal products.

If you are against eating meat and using animal products because killing animals is wrong, then I guess you won't vote with your wallet and you will continue to tell everyone to live the way you do. In that case, I don't have time for your faggotry. You probably think everyone deserves a prize for participation in any activity, and you probably believe that surplus labor is performed by coercion and not choice. 420 feel the bern my man.
>>
>>35665328
You ignore that these studies look at entire populations, ie comparing McDonald's eaters vs vegans. Vegans have to be more conscious of what they eat, since they can't eat much. So, of course they are generally healthier.

Comparing a conscious meat eater to a conscious vegan tells a different tale.
>>
Nature supports the slaughter of pretty much everything that doesn't make it to the tippy top of the food chain. There is no question of morality.

If I have a concern for how my animal meats are produced, it's concern for myself as I consume them. That's my only motivation to clean up the food/farm industry to produce cleaner meat; because I'm going to eat it, and I want it to be clean.

I've raised animals I've eaten in the past. While I no longer live on the farm with mom and dad, I still live in an area with many small to medium scale farms, most of which have the animals grazing in public areas that are easy to see. I feel no remorse for eating these animals, because it's the circle of life. These animals that I eat have a comfortable, healthy life, and in exchange, when their time comes they are slaughtered by somebody who knows and respects them and then fed to the local community. Living in USA may make a difference to many of you, but for me, there isn't really a reasonable question of ethics.

Comparing a raccoon who kills a chicken very quickly compared to breeding and making animals suffer to satisfy no dietary need you can't get on a plant based diet. Next time i see the raccoon, I'll tell him to stop grinding up male chicks for their worthlessness, stop raping dairy cows, stop taking their babies for veal, and not to kill pigs which share pretty much every trait we commonly associate with dogs. This is even worse than the asshole who justify a pet snake by saying that it happens in the wild, when it's a completely different scenario. Also animals rape and kill to spread genes, get resources, hardly any sex in nature is consensual, better not get cucked and do what the animals do. OurA ancestors were shown to eat a good amount of insects and foraged veggies but Muh paleo.

You're conflating "eating meat" with "industrial farming". They're not the same thing.

Ironically, most of the people who can't stop going on about being vegetarian or vegan will actually recoil in horror if you tell them you hunt for food and say "why subject that animal to such an end when you could just buy meat at the store that poor deer didn't have to die like that" when a good hunt is one of the most natural ends to a prey animal's life possible, far more humane than them breaking a leg and starving to death or dying of disease.

While wonderful for me, I understand the wider implications of industrialized farming and disagree with it principally and would favour a return to more organic styles of farming and hunting, but unfortunately the majority of people think their choice is industrial farming or vegetarianism, and they couldn't bear the thought of an animal actually being killed in the act of eating meat, so they'd much rather go to the store, pay for their steak, and not know what happened in between.

No shit early man ate insects and vegetables, they ate literally anything edible- including prey animals when they could catch them because they were delicious and super high in energy, which they could cart back to the cave and would last them a while.

>Next time i see the raccoon, I'll tell him to stop grinding up male chicks for their worthlessness, stop raping dairy cows, stop taking their babies for veal, and not to kill pigs which share pretty much every trait we commonly associate with dogs.

Then you can explain this. If the prices go up, wouldn't that give more money to the country supplying the grains?

More money, more tax. Where is all that money? Shouldn't that be turned into providing better education, better workplaces and stuff like that for the people living in the third world country providing grain?

It disappears through corruption and misplacing the money to fund, I don't know, terrorist forces or something.

So, uhh, if money were to be placed into creating more grains in that country, it wouldn't cause sarvation, no?

Word. The animal cruelty arguments are poor. What about environmental arguments though?

The amount of land cleared and subsequently destroyed by raising livestock is unsustainable if we consume the same amount of meat as we have for the past 40 years.

Vegans are just retarded when it comes to why people starve. People starve to death because they're poor, like super poor. The supposedly poor people exporting their crops are not poor (also ever heard the saying farmers never starve). There are other people in these shit countries that own next to nothing or really shit land. These people that own nothing are starving because their corrupt, infantile governments can't or don't want to help them. Also because they have more kids than they can feed.

Also America exports soooo much food, way more than it imports. We literally can starve countries singlehandedly.

It is important to do it for ethical, environmental and health reasons. You will never go back to eating the body parts and secretions of another animal, especially when you see it for it is.

14 out of 15 leading causes of death are primarily caused by the consumption of animal agriculture.

You can let an animal live in comfort before slaughtering it and you can also harvest from it without being cruel, but corporations would rather keep a cow milking all her life and make the living conditions of all animals shit because it's cheaper.

A few people in the world going vegan will NOT make a huge impact, what's needed is a reform of these companies.

Also, honestly, a huge chunk of people really can't afford to go vegan. Vegetarian, maybe, but vegan, it's costly.

i cannot understand when i hear people say the ethical arguments for veganism are weak or non existent when they are informed. Its disgusting how we treat them, especially when there is no reason to do so.

You sound like fattys when they saying eating healthy is expensive.

And it does fall upon you now you have the power of knowledge. A true man accepts it and does his best to stop injustice. Or you could just carry on following everyone else, cus its what society and advertisement tells you,

The only reason animal agriculture exists is so someone can make money. They make a lot, they buy off scientists, they buy advertisment spaces fucking everywhere just to make sure you see the products every single day from day 1, meanwhile the camps are hidden away and every effort is taken to hide them.

My point wasn't "don't be a vegan it's not worth it," my point was that in order to see substantial changes with regard to the treatment of animals, corporations should be changed, since that will have a FAR larger impact that a small percent of the population going vegan.

Look at states that sometimes go into droughts: the government advises homes to use water sparingly, to stop watering their lawns, take quick showers, etc. But that is such a minuscule amount of water saved compared to the way corporations waste resources like water, because it's cheaper.

All I'm saying is you should be pointing your fingers more at the companies that actually do commit animal cruelty and spend millions on advertising and normalizing it, instead of at a few individuals on 4chan.

Vote with your dollar. It's the most powerful vote you have after all. I'm not into veganism or vegetarianism and I really don't care if my fruit is from genetically modified plants but the hippies are doing it right when it comes to meat. I fucking love meat from happy cows and happy chickens. I always get my meat at the hippie grocery store these days, it's leaner and firmer, goddamn delicious. After you try it, meat from animals who spend their entire lives in a pen or cage will seem all flabby and weak. Remember that King of the Hill episode where Hank discovers hippie steaks? The more demand there is for happy cows the more people will make them. The only thing better is meat you killed yourself.

>Why is the fault of the corporations who commit atrocious animal cruelty fall upon me?

You create demand.

>I'll do my part to reduce my foot print and all, with recycling, saving power, etc., but at the end of the day, it's mega conglomerates that waste the most energy and commit animal cruelty.

This has almost zero effect. Go get a v8, it won't fucking matter as long as you contribute to the worst industry regarding environmental destruction.

>You can let an animal live in comfort before slaughtering it and you can also harvest from it without being cruel, but corporations would rather keep a cow milking all her life and make the living conditions of all animals shit because it's cheaper.

You can't humanely kill a sentient being. It is unjustifiable.

>A few people in the world going vegan will NOT make a huge impact, what's needed is a reform of these companies.

All you can do is to go vegan yourself and create lesser demand for animal products. Our "movement" wouldn't grow if everybody had your mindset.

>Also, honestly, a huge chunk of people really can't afford to go vegan. Vegetarian, maybe, but vegan, it's costly.

Vegetarianism is a good first step, but it is just as bad. The following video is about the milk industry since vegetarians mostly consume dairy products.
https://youtu.be/UcN7SGGoCNI?list=PLapFXMBeGeYA0KrRl0PCpcSSrH0bhLEoR

Furthermore being vegan is NOT expensive. You can be homeless and go vegan. Pasta, rice, bananas, potatoes are cheap as fuck.
Just add veggies, fruit, nuts, seeds and a b12 supp and you are good to.
You don't need fancy shit like Quinoa, Couscous, Avocados, fancy imported fruits etc.

Meat is fuckin murder and you should rethink your life if you still eat it. There are huge vegan athletes out there.

Get into hunting. There is nothing more human than killing an animal and feasting on its flesh. When you eat meat and pump iron its strength becomes yours. Before we learned farming we were hunter/gatherers, and those people had far healthier diets than the peasants toiling in the fields who came after them. Do you want to be strong the way humans were meant to be or do you want to eat lentils and have to take dietary supplements like that douche with bleached hair and waxed nipples?

>>
>>35668800

>Where am i wrong? The idea that fat is inherently bad is clearly bullshit

For a start, fat in general being bad was never a scientific consensus and the US government never advocated a low fat diet. Saturated fats, sometimes referred to as "animal fats," and later trans fats, were identified as bad, and that's consensus today based on decades of research.

>Processed shit is bad. Natural food is good. This is the only thing that is absolutely certain.

In general, but you can't claim that for everything. Doing so would be fallacious. Saturated fats for example are perfectly natural, but not healthy.
>>
>>35668761
Yet I'm sure I could find a study that posits the exact opposite. People in the past ate shit loads of eggs, drank whole milk, ate organ meats (fatty), never cut the fat of their steaks, cooked with butter and lard, etc etc, they never worried about their diet. The low fat stuff took off in the 80's and yet rates of heart disease have only increased, what's funnier is that the low fat fad hit Anglo countries far more than European countries, yet Anglo countries have higher rates of obesity and heart disease.

Eat a wide variety of natural food, avoid sugar, don't stuff your face (portion sizes in Anglo countries are far too big) This is all you need to do to be healthy, not cut out entire food groups.

Here's the problem, you have a made up view of the past. The things you believe aren't real. You maybe watched a movie or read a story somewhere that gave you the impression that everyone in the past ate like lard-loving kings and suffered no health effects from it, and you just rolled with that idea.

>The low fat stuff took off in the 80's and yet rates of heart disease have only increased, what's funnier is that the low fat fad hit Anglo countries far more than European countries, yet Anglo countries have higher rates of obesity and heart disease.

As we can see, "low fat" never caught on. If anyone bought low fat food products, they ate them in addition to their usual fatty diets.

Here is a link to a page which has lots of links to studies showing low fat is bullshit
http://authoritynutrition.com/7-ways-the-low-fat-diet-destroys-your-health/

Why should I believe your studies and not these studies? Especially when you are bias since you don't consume animal products for ethical reasons.
>>
>>35669180
you do know most vegans were not raised vegan right?
>>
>>35669133

>What did people eat then?

What they could afford. Potatoes, bread, beans, vegetables, some dairy, and occasionally meat. If you were rich, you could afford more of the fatty foods, and then you'd suffer from what were known as "diseases of affluence" like obesity, gout, and heart disease.

It sounds like this website doesn't work for you on your phone, but for anyone else watching, here's a related video about the mediterranean diet

something like this
>farmers make food and live off it
>other people make other things and trade them for food with the farmers

>other people multiply in numbers
>cant afford enough food for all of them
>starve to death

in the west, agriculture has been improving due to technology and industrialisation, so it kept up with increasing demand. but niggers in africa can't into industry. hell, most of them can't even manage to form a long-term stable nation that doesnt succumb to ethnic and religious unrest all the time. things like corruption and inefficient governments dont particularly help with industrialisation either.

tl;dr niggers cant into civilisation

>Why should I believe your studies and not these studies?

If you're talking to me, not sure what studies you're referring to. And the first point I have to stress again is that the US guidelines never recommended a low-fat diet, just a low saturated fat diet. The AHA even states this flat-out

http://www.heart.org/HEARTORG/GettingHealthy/NutritionCenter/HealthyEating/Frequently-Asked-Questions-About-Saturated-Fats_UCM_463756_Article.jsp#.Vp1QB5RrVEI

>Does the American Heart Association recommend a low-fat diet?
>No. The American Heart Association recommends a healthy dietary pattern, with between 25-35 percent of total calories from fats. That is considered a moderate-fat diet. Saturated and trans fats should be replaced with healthier fats, such as poly and mono-unsaturated fats.

The US guidelines recommend 30% as well.

The article is trying to make a big point of Americans being unhealthy after adopting a low-fat diet, but we already saw this isn't true.

I'm not talking about medieval times. Your grandparents would have eaten far more animal products than that if you come from a western country, their parents too. Rich people ate far more sugar than the rest of the population. That's far more likely to be the reason for increased incidence of those things.

There is simply much more reason to think that processed food and sugar is the cause of lifestyle related diseases rather than natural animal fats we literally evolved to eat.

>I'm not talking about medieval times

Neither am I, that's just how most peoples' diets looked for a very long time. You got your veggies, your grains, your root vegetables, your legumes, some meats that you eat less frequently, and if you're European you've got some cheeses to flavor a meal. The average person wasn't eating sausages all day and frying everything in butter.

>There is simply much more reason to think that processed food and sugar is the cause of lifestyle related diseases rather than natural animal fats we literally evolved to eat.

"The cause" isn't the right way to phrase it. Processed foods and processed sugars are terrible, and a cause of today's health problems, alongside high consumption of animal fats that we obviously didn't "evolve to eat" because they do in fact contribute to so many health problems

I really hope animals don't feel pain like people because Planet Earth shows that nature is cruel as fuck.
>>
>>35665765
It is, I suppose. My assumption is that someone wants to eat meat but finds cruelty unethical, in which case not eating meat would be unnecessary compared to supporting ethical producers.

It alsl has the added effect of marginally shifting market share toward ethical meat producers, whereas purchasing no meat or animal products will just reduce market size while not really have a significant effect on the profits of ethical vs nonethical production by comparison (you can give -1 or 0 dollars to nonethical and 1 dollar to ethical, or -1 or 0 to both).

You are right though. Not participating is voting with your wallet. I was mistaken.

>>35666982
The land/resource usage is a fair point, and maybe reduction or substitution of certain meat products is a necessary goal (insect protein, lab grown meat? something will come along, at some point).

The fact is, at least as far as I understand it, some amino acids can only be gotten from meat or supplements/dietary combinations that would be unavailable/prohibitively expensive in large parts of the world.

Moreover, many animal food products are extremely nutrient dense. Milk is a powerful example.

I think reducing consumption and sustainable husbandry is important and worth probing. I also think we need to be cautious about the whole "eat like our ancestors argument." Our diet is adaptive. Settled farmers ate one diet, and hunter-gatherers ate yet another diet, and there are many shades of diet within those two categories that vary wildly in time and space. Our diet now may be a worse diet, or it may be a better diet. Our past diet can and should inform us, but assuming it to be better because it is in the past is fallacious.
>>
>>35669756
Humans have always hunted and fished, in every single society ever known. This isn't up for debate. Vegetarianism has only ever come about for ethical reasons (Buddhism etc).

Welcome to the world of science deniers

This also isn't what you might think it is. This isn't this news outlet going "this is what we believe," they're reporting on a study that's likely to get attention and give them views. The study in question uses mostly the same studies described in this study here >>35669482 and even the authors of the study don't agree that it should be taken to mean that saturated fats aren't harmful. Here's the lead author in a more recently published study advocating for the decreased consumption of saturated fats and red meats

http://content.onlinejacc.org/article.aspx?articleid=2445321

You'll find plenty of bloggers and news articles reporting on pro fat papers because that gathers views. No group of scientists who have an expertise in nutrition or health have doubts about saturated fat though.
>>
>>35665151
The difference is that going vegan won't personally benefit you, whereas lifting will. There's supposed health benefits, but even if you show people the science, they will still be too skeptical to change.

They are kids. Why are you listening to kids? Do you unironically belive that if the world was run by children we would be better off?

>>35666559
But How can we, as consumers, stop industrial farming if not by avoiding meat? Sure, there are labels you can follow like "cage free", but those terms are pretty loosely defined. Further, I'm skeptical that we can satisfy the current demand the US has for meat without industrial farming. It seems like collectively cutting back out meat intake is unavoidable if we want to cut down on factory farming

When someone developes a plant based replacement for soy that doesn't increase estrogen and inhibit test production I'll reconsider veganism. Currently a vegan diet without soy isn't sustainible, but a vegan diet with regular soy consumption is like steroids on opposite day.

Maybe if bugs become popular enough to be found in the grocery store I'll ride that train for a while. At least until the inevitable "eating bugs is murder" movement.

Soy increasing estrogen levels is a brosience myth. Soy not sustainable? The soy you are thinking about is grown for animal agriculture. The tofu I buy is from austria (eurofag) but I dont like soy tho...there are literally thousands of alternatives.

>>35669904
Lol, no. Hunting was celebrated and huge part of culture. And you think cavemen gave a shit about where they got their energy? Of course they hunted, humanity would not have made it if it were not for meat consumption. We don't have a direct instinct to kill animals because we live far removed from our natural state and our instincts are largely conditioned out of us/subverted.

Why would you want to avoid it? And you can, I don't plan on anymore and many vegans avoid soy because they don't like meat substitutes and there is no need for soy.

>>35670203
Super fast to breed though. Bug farms have potential. More crickets and ants than mozzies and cockroaches. Some bugs have amazing protein content.
>>
>>35670220

Soy is one of dozens of common beans
>>
>>35670267
I would avoid it because soy is loaded with isoflavones which the body uses as an alternative to estrogen. It's admittedly a small effect but verifiably non zero.

You are mistaking sentience for consciousness. Sentience is a living thing's ability to feel and percieve. Plants have this ability. They experience stress which can stunt their growth. They can react to animals eating them by releasing toxins to defend themselves. They will move themselves closer to the sun if they're planted in the shade. Vines will even send out a tendril to feel for a place it can grab. They adapt to their surroundings in a hope to survive. That will to survive is sentience.
