I think so. I am a vegetarian. It's healthier than an omnivorous diet, it's better for animals, and it's better for the environment.

There's a good balance; eating only meat or only vegetables and fruits is unhealthy either way.

That doesn't mean that you'll NEVER get sick from eating meat. I'm sure you've been swimming before, and you've never drowned yet - but does that mean you can stay underwater for an hour? Just because you've NEVER DROWNED BEFORE doesn't mean you can NEVER DROWN. Just because you've NEVER GOTTEN SICK FROM EATING MEAT doesn't mean you CAN'T GET SICK FROM EATING See More▼

Looking back at my comments, I realize that I might have started an argument. I did not mean to begin a fight - I just meant to bring awareness to the health dangers of meat consumption.

7. There is such a thing as too much protein. The average American eats 400% of the recommended dietary allowance for protein, which causes an excess of nitrogen in the blood - this can cause long-term health problems.

Well, that depends how you look at it.
1. There are over 20,000 types of drugs given to animal livestock, and when you eat the animal, you are also consuming the drugs.
2. Many dangerous viruses and bacteria are common to animals, and when we eat the meat, we eat the virus too.
3. Some fast food restaurants get their mean from farmers who neglect their cows. See More▼

Well it depends.

Just because one person out of the whole world does not eat meat the people will still kill animals because they like meat. And if you try to convince people to not eat meat some people will not because they like it and tons of people will lose there jobs. Also if you don't have enough meat you have a low amount of protein. Protein is super good for you. Meat also contains other healthy stuff for you. But you can still eat nuts and eggs to have protein. But some See More▼

Well, it all depends on your health and financial situation. I'm of the opinion that if you are able, you should become vegan/vegetarian. It's the best opportunity for your overall health, helps you live longer, has an immensely positive impact on the environment, and of course, you're no longer eating animals. It's a much easier transition than many people believe, and many vegetarians/vegans lose the taste for meat in 3-5 months! And even if you do still crave meat, there are See More▼

Yah! I'm partially a vegitarian myself, but I still eat some meat at times, I just try to avoid it. You can get all of your nutrients from beans, it's about the same as meat. Eating vegetables also eliminates unnecessary animal slaughter and decreases your chance of heart problems :3
