Do people that use glue need to render animals? If you wear or use leather or any animal skin goods should you have to trap and skin an animal? How far does this concept go?

What is wrong with this? Ok so I am about to consume 500-1500 calories in a burger, if I dont want the extra 2-300 that are going to be in the soda whats the issue?

I will occasionally have a diet coke float too,, again I enjoy the flavor, it scratches my sweet tooth itch, and I came in a couple hundred calories under what it would have been with regular coke.

While I see no problem with gathering as opposed to hunting or farming, I do think that people should at least become informed to how animals that they eat and wear get killed. Dairy products are one thing, but the lives of fellow earth dwelling animals deserve respect, and one should not disrespectfully pretend that meat comes from anything other than dead animals.

I have a pretty good idea of how many of the animals that are part of the human food chain are dispatched. I used to pass the building where they were working on more humane ways to do this everyday at Texas A&M. Never witnessed it personally, but I have spoken with those who have.

I realize it is not pleasant, but animals eat other animals. The way we do it is a bit more humane that getting dragged down by a pack of wolves and torn to pieces while still alive. Or at least it is in my opinion.

UnsafeAlpine,

My guess is that it will give you a stomach-ache, since you are so not used to meat. I agree with the person who said that you might be missing some nutrients, and that's what's stimulating the craving. I think the main vegetarian deficiencies I've heard of are one of the B vitamins (can't remember which one, though) and iron. Have you been taking your vitamins?

Another idea for a red meat fix would be ground buffalo or elk. I have been able to get these at a local farmers market/health food store, so you you wouldn't have to kill it yourself. Only reason I suggest it is because they "raise" them a little more naturalistically than cattle--no hormones, antibiotics, open grazing, etc.. The meat is simply of better quality, and more humanely raised, in my humble opinion. Even with that, you might want to have a very small portion.

About once a year, I have a craving for liver, which really isn't that great for regular consumption. I figure there's something in it that my body wants. It only takes a very little bit to satiate the craving, though.

Let us know what you choose!
