I know plenty of 'ideological' vegetarians who go and buy petrol with their cars. I dont want to start a political debate, but you understand what I mean?

My personal reason is that I see too much suffering and unecessary death in the world already and feel I don't want to contribute to it any more than I already do. If I can live without it then why not?




Perfectly reasonable logic, that I neither condone, nor condemn, and i suggest we all agree to disagree before this so far agreeable thread inevitably starts going round in ever more angry circles
We dont need a nutritional version of the MMA/TMA argument do we?

' who would win- Ali, with some BJJ training and trained on a vegetarian diet, or Tyson, with a BB in TKD fed purely on raw steak? '

Yep, I'm also working on that but without getting too political, our government don't want us using ethanol or vegetable oil to run our vehicles on! I know I'm far from perfect, but I'm making a start and do try to be an ethical consumer.

Now I await your name calling... what's it gonna be? Soap dodger? Tree hugger? Peace fairy? Sandal wearer?

The difference between a vegan and a vegetarian is that a vegan doesn't eat meat or fish and also doesn't consume dairy products like milk, cheese and eggs. I eat dairy products but do not eat meat or fish or any products which contain gelatine or rennet etc.




I'm well aware of the difference between vegans and other vegetarians--I simply asked what level of vegetarian you are. You're a lacto-ovo-vegetarian, so we've settled that one.

And because of that, you are getting nutrients that a vegan does not.

I could live quite happily on beans and rice for the rest of my life...with some greens on the side...because I really like them. And I despise the taste of fruit. I break out in hives when I drink orange juice, and if I touch tomatos my skin will break open and bleed.

How about an argument that, philosophy aside, each individual might have different needs...and that not one diet can really fit everyone?

Do you get all your veggies and grains from organic farms?

I ask this because, if you don't, you're still a part of the suffering "problem".

How so? Well, you know all those big, sci-fi-looking farm machines used on ordinary farms? Those devices end up slicing and dicing an awful lot of little critters.
