Yea but lifespan is just an overall average. Look at the environment they live in. Pretty sure they don't go to doctors or have antibiotics if they get a serious wound. You can take a couple who lived to in their upper 70's and had two children who died at birth and their average lifespan would be taken down to 37yrs. So I don't really follow that. And yes there are a lot of different countries that don't have cancer but again it's to not eating grains and not the meats fault. I was just taking one of the people for a reference. I also know the okinawans are the healthiest and longest living people but they still had at least a half serving of fish a day in there diets. Again if meat is so toxic why is it when grains have been eliminated all these problems disappear. I am not trying to start a conflict but I don't see any response to it other than still saying it's the cause for heart attack or cancer when there is actually no prove. Experts are now finding that all these ailments are linked to grains but more importantly wheat. As it has been genetically altered to where it is nowhere near what it used to be 50yrs ago and has pretty taken up 99% of the world's population. Only select farms grow any of the original wheat strain, which is still not great for you. Again please don't take offense.
Yay! I consider you to be remotely nice :D.
Melanie did totally hit the nail on the head, though. That is exactly how you appeared to me aswell. Random mouthy chick.
The hip part was about you approach the whole matter:
"anyhow, after watching Forks Over Knives, my husband and I have decided on vegetarianism.".
That sentence is just...I don't even have any words for it. It's like a serial killer seriously telling people "After watching Silence of the Lambs, me and my parole officer have decided I should stop murdering hot women".
Natural does not equal good. Popping a pill to get B-12 with an otherwise healthy diet is probably better then eating meat/animal products and getting toxins to go with it. I know nothing about that Amish farm, so I suppose eating eggs is no issue if the chickens are treated well, but eggs are just not that healthy in the first place. Second, you would have to consume quite a bit of eggs to get sufficient B-12 and omega-3 fatty acids. It doesn't really solve anything, you will probably need to supplement both in order to get optimal amounts. Diary industry cows are treated no better then meat industry cows, so why drink milk unless that also comes from the Amish farm. Again, what's with the RAW! milk thing? Natural does not equal good, there's a reason they pasteurize that crap. While were on the matter of natural, it is not natural for a grown woman to consume the milk of another species.
The eskimo/inuit thing is taken way out of proportion. Do you know what their lifespan is? An awesome 50 years. These people do not even live close to even western society retirement regardless of their impeccable health. Do you know where else people rarely get cancer? In just about every third world country!
Do you know what people did live ridiculously long even by western society standard? The Okinawans. A bunch of simple farmers that lived off pretty much 99% sweet potatoes. Virtually no grains, virtually no meat (they did have some monthly festival thing in which they ate meat), virtually no fat or protein. Virtually no modern healthcare. Just. Frigging. Sweet potatoes.
