back when meat was expensive it usually WASN'T processed, now it is, i'm no expert, but a lot of food now is pumped with GMOs that's why a lot of food is unhealthy. NON-ORGANIC plants are sprayed with chemicals to protect from bugs, the bugs die, so why would we NOT get sick from the chemicals? ORGANIC meat contains a lot of high quality protein that you can't get from anything else. ORGANIC meat comes from cows who have been fed on grass and other NATURAL food (like grains and such) NON-organic meat is meat that comes from cows who have been fed antibiotics and or other hormones, cows that do NOT get fresh grass (and other natural foods in their diet) NON-ORGANIC meat CAN cause obesity and other diseases. that why me and my family prefer to raise our own meat.Actually, veganism has been proved by the American Diatetic Association to be suitable for all life stages. I have been vegan for five years and my blood work has come back perfect, with the exception of my blood pressure and cholesterol being on the low side- which, if you ask me, is much better than the high blood pressure that leads to heart disease and that so many people have.
The thing is, meat is not meant to be consumed on a daily basis. There's a pretty direct correlation with the amount of meat people eat and the obesity rate- back when meat was considered expensive and wasn't consumed often, obesity was virtually obsolete. Animal agriculture is also extremely harmful to the environment- the Amazon is being destroyed to create pastures for cattle.
However, I'm vegan for ethical reasons. I couldn't imagine eating a dog or bunny, so why is a cow, pig, or chicken any different? Pigs are smarter than dogs, cows are perhaps the sweetest animals on earth, and my pet chickens used to follow me and sit in my lap. I'm not trying to push my views on anyone, but it seems that a lot of people here are against veganism, which I don't
Perhaps it's regional, but where I live, there are lots of vegans and restaurants that cater to them. I know people who have been vegan since birth and are perfectly healthy. Just something to think about.
It's actually not a delicacy, it's about the cheapest meat you can find (cheaper than chicken) which is telling about the conditions in which those rabbits are raised...No vegans in our household! I've had rabbit and it's actually pretty healthy...in France it's a delicacy, which is where I first tried it. I prefer steak over anything else though.
