IS IT TRUE THAT IF YOU HAVE DREADS YOU SHOULD NOT EAT MEAT?
Dreads and Diets
I was raised in a Seventh Day Adventist family. The religion goes by the old testament food rules like the Ital diet.Eating certain meat (animals with cloven hooves and things that crawled on the bottom of the ocean) was prohibited. We were allowed to eat beef but most didn't .I also went to a private school so i wasn't really exposed to anything else. One of the most cruel things that I ever experienced was a field trip the school took us on to a slaughter house. Talk about brain washing a child! It was explained to me that not eating pork was because of triginosus ( not sure of the spelling) which is a parasite in undercooked pork. Same with scavengers they were considered "unclean".So the laws were set down for health reasons. I grew up and have my own beliefs now ..which differ greatly from what i was raised, but my diet hasn't changed. I tried a vegan diet but missed cheese too much (soy just isn't the same). I raised my children without meat. when my daughter was 4 years old she went to a birthday party and was given a hot dog...her first exposure to meat. I promptly took her home when i realised she had eaten some of it. I was worried ...she had never had any meat and did not have the digestive enzymes to digest it. I thought i would have a very sick little girl. Nothing happened ......nothing at all. She did not get sick. She is still a veggy by choice. My other daughter is a meat eater. Their choices....i never forced my opinions on them. Gave them the information and the options but let them choose.but i digress...your hair doesn't control your diet. It is a choice... dread or don't dread.....eat meat or don't eat meat.....it is up to you.
