|fellow-earthlings:||Hi, not trying to be intrusive or start any arguments, but out of curiosity, why are you against being vegan?|
haha no worries. it’s nearly impossible to piss me off, even if you were trying to start drama, i don’t mind answering questions one bit. i also figured this question would come up (;
it’s extremely unhealthy and i know vegans swear up and down it isn’t but it has been proven countless times by different people with absolutely no association with one another, so it isn’t like they teamed up and all reported it. humans are animals, whether we want to admit it or not. if you force your beliefs on your animal and make it vegan it WILL become sick. it isn’t a “might become sick” it’s a “when it becomes sick” situation. when you bring that animal into the vet they will immediately tell you to stop with the vegan diet and immediately give the animal the meats it needs in order to survive. hundreds of animals die every single year because people force them to be vegans. it’s extremely sick and twisted that people would rather allow their pet to slowly whither away and die, than allow it to have the diet it needs all because they’re a vegan and want their pet to be like them.
a football player turned vegan and that year broke and sprained a lot of bones. he got more injuries than any other year and he also became injured in situations other people would not (simply falling, for example). when the doctor found out he was vegan he told him that despite changing his diet slowly and “properly” it was still making him weak because he wasn’t getting the real natural proteins he needed. you can take vitamins but those aren’t really meat and you don’t get everything out of them that you do if you were to actually eat meat, drink milk, eat eggs, etc. so when the football player went back to his normal diet he was no longer getting injured easily and basically for no reason like he had been when he was vegan.
we’ve been eating meat since the beginning of time because that’s what we’re supposed to do. the reason our bodies are capable of breaking down protein and dairy is because we are meant to have it. that’s why our teeth are also designed in the way that they are. although a semi new study has come out saying milk may not actually be good for adults to drink and i believe that to a slight extent. i agree we probably shouldn’t drink a lot of milk because, again, we are animals and what animal drinks milk once it’s an adult? none. they do it as babies to grow strong and healthy and then stop to eat whatever it is they’re meant to from there. humans however have decided to drink milk through their entire lives. however since over time we’ve done this for so long our bodies have of course evolved into accepting it more but i do think drinking too much milk or having too much calcium altogether and you can become extremely ill, but then again, too much of anything can be extremely bad for anyone.
so i am extremely against being vegan because it’s unhealthy and because some vegans believe they’re doing the right thing by making their pet follow their beliefs but they’re actually slowly and painfully killing them instead. to me, being vegan is ignorant. i’m against how most slaughter houses operate and believe every single slaughter house by law should have to allow their animals to be free range (roaming a farm, not kept in cages and most definitely not kept in cages where they can’t move or tied to the damn ground), and i’m also against with how they’re killed more often than not, but eating meat is something we have always done and it’s what keeps us healthy, strong and alive. with meat or dairy and many other foods we get from animals, we could have easily gone extinct so many years ago. had cavemen been vegans they would have all died from malnourishment and people say “that’s only because they didn’t have the vitamins”, but do you realize how that sounds? if you need a vitamin to give your body what it needs and to keep it healthy, you’re obviously denying it something it desperately needs so being a vegan makes absolutely no sense at all and again, i think it’s ignorant.
The most misinformed piece of drivel I’ve ever read. I got half way and gave up. It’s fair enough to not want to be vegan but to broadcast a load of biased, unsourced and bullshit claims to your followers is just ridiculous. And way to derail the conversation and make it seem like all vegans feed their pets vegan??
Jfc. “To be vegan is ignorant and makes no sense at all”.
Doesn’t that just sum it up, folks? Somebody who has absolutely zero knowledge on the lifestyle, who cherry-picks the people who went about it for DIET rather than ethics and who royally fucked up, as well as those who have neglected their animals, and thus decided we are all just ignorant, foolish people. The fact this comes from a blogger who claims to love animals and be ‘addicted’ to them just makes it even more of a joke.
Gross as fuck and ignorance at its finest.
You can love animals and still exploit them for your own benefit!! Don’t you know that? The animals will just die anyway! Don’t you know that we are basically lions? I mean, look in the mirror. Are those not teeth of a lion? :) :D XD
Just to bring this post back to peace, I’d like to say that you (animaladdiction) did bring up a lot of good points which I understand having come from an omnivorous lifestyle as you have. I agree with you not about feeding companion animals unnatural vegan diets. Most vegans agree that this is cruel. In fact, the only way veganism is possible for humans is because humans CAN be healthy on a plant-based diet, however other animals such as dogs and cats can not.
About the football player getting more injuries while he was vegan - I have not heard this story but if it is true that it was because he wasn’t getting all the essential nutrients and proteins he needed, this could have easily been fixed while still maintaining the diet as there is plenty of evidence that supports that it is, in fact, possible to obtain all the required nutrients through a plant-based diet even though it may take some effort and planning. How do you think these nutrients get in the animal products in the first place? The answer is through the foods the animals eat, which are plants.
The next point you brought up that I would like to revisit is that you said that the reason our bodies are able to break down milk proteins is because we were meant to have it. One fact that I would like you to know is that the majority of adults are lactose intolerant and the reason 100% of adults are not lactose intolerant is because of a mutation that occurred which caused the enzyme that breaks down lactose to continue to be produced past infancy and into adulthood. Also the fact that no other animal on earth consumes milk as adults, especially from an entirely different species should say something.
The one thing that I can not stress enough is that just because we have done something for a long period of time does not make it any more okay. This applies to humans eating meat. Humans are opportunistic omnivores which means we can physicallyeat meat if given the opportunity. The reason our ancestors ate meat is because they did not have access to all the plant-based foods they would need to make up for the protein and nutrients they got from animal products. However, in today’s world, most people do have access to all of said foods, so eating animal products is not always necessary, and if we can survive without them in today’s world, it would be beyond wise to do so.
I am not here to give you a hard time for your choice to be against veganism or to tell you what to do, I am only here to share with you information from the other side, which I hope you will now take into consideration and decide to do a bit more research. Thank you for your attention and patience if you read all the way through.
