Hi, I read the anti-vegetarian article. He has a lot of good stuff to say, but also some twisted facts.
I am a borderline vegetarian, but don’t hang with the hardcore vegans. Why? most of them fit the profile from that article. If you don’t eat meat, and don’t know what you are doing you will get sick (also, most vegans I meet are very holy than though) The vast majority of vegetarians do not really know what they are doing. You must have a biochemistry that lets you be a vegetarian, and must tailer it just rite. It is not fair to paint the few vegetarians that learn how to do it right, (to me , these are the true vegetarians) With the brush of people doing it wrong. His logic is inconsistent. If he is going to view it that way, then eating meet does cause all kinds of health problems. Well, yes, it is actually all the steroids and crap in the meat. But that is what the majority of meat eaters eat, along with lots of other crap. If he is going to address the tiny minority of modern people eating free range meet & a healthy diet, then he should also address the tiny minority of vegetarians that have bothered to learn how to do it right.
Cant post a link (can someone else?) but Harvard or Yale, someone, once did an endurance study about vegetarians. They found that the vegetarians had more than twice the endurance of the meat eaters. They also acknowledged that they had used only extremely knowledgeable healthy vegetarians. I would guess that the control group was eating standard US crap. To me they were displaying the same twisted pseudocientific approach, as the article.
IMHO the healthiest diet for MOST people is raw veggies, nuts, some fruit, legumes, healthy fish, and a limited intake of red meet and dairy(unless lactose intolerant).
Dont know the %’s but most people have allergies/intolerance to corn, wheat and dairy.
