    There are no health benefits or any other good reason to eat meat.* "Our ancestors did it" seems to be the best anyone can come up with. You just need to find the right things to replace it.

    *Except that it tastes lovely

    How? Pointing out unhealthy vegetarians is pointless because there are a lot more unhealthy meat eaters.

    Horus,

    There are more unhealthy meat eaters because there are more meat eaters. There are more unhealthy meat eaters than there are total vegetarians, by many orders of magnitude. That's not a counterargument to the fact that meat provides complete proteins, vitamin B12, and the minerals iron, zinc, and magnesium, for a few examples that are very difficult (although perhaps not impossible) to get from eating exclusively non-animal based foods.

    Start here http://www.westonaprice.org/mythstru...tarianism.html and let me know if you would like further sources of information.

    Is this going to turn into one of these debates again?

    Can we just say you both have valid points?

    What? Where's the beef? This conversation just makes me itch for a big sausage to be inside me.

    No, seriously though, you are wrong times infinity! Ha! I win.

    Those seem to be arguments against veganism though, not vegetarianism. With the range of food products and supplements available these days it's really not hard to get the necessary vitamins and protein without eating meat. Our bodies aren't even capable of properly digesting red meat, not a good sign.

    You are incorrect. These claims have been discussed at some length in this thread. If you have any questions after carefully reading the whole thread, feel free to ask.
