BTW, your comment is actually highlighting a great benefit of vegetarain foods ... it makes vegetarians lean and stringy. Isn't that the holy grail of dieting? Almost everyday, in every medium, we are bombarded with some or the other diet plan that is supposed to make america less obese.

Anyway, it's pity that even educated people do not judge vegetarian food by its benefits but berate it just because some religious zealots promote it. Some of my non-veg friends laugh it off as "ghaas-phoos" (grass and leaves). Their ignorance amuses me. If anybody seriously compares veg and nonveg foods, I don't think they would eat non-veg by choice ever.

This isn't so fun anymore.

I think the topic is interesting, but ... there is a great deal of stuff that we're being told is fact, when it's more like opinion, or it's referring to research, but there is other research that contradicts that research (it's that sort of thing about how it is measured).

One example: "Medical studies prove that a vegetarian diet is easier to digest ..." It so depends on what is consumed. And on the person. They have proven that many people do better on a vegetarian diet, but did those studies show that that was the case for all of the study's subjects? I feel pretty confident the answer is "no".

To respond properly to such a long document and do the research to back up my stuff would take me about two days and I gotta get my butt to work ...

I agree with Paul. Certain discussions like God, religion, life, eating habits can be debated endlessly without reaching firm conclusions. Though I am a non-vegetarian, my family has truck loads of vegans and we too used to have endless discussions. I can fill up umpteen pages but I know people already have firm positions and cannot be swayed. And as far as my vegan relatives go, though they boast of being vegetarians, most of them have high cholesterols because the food that they have is heavy in deep fry, ghee, oil, rice etc, etc. So if one does not watch what one eats, it does not matter, whether a vegan or not, the body can get tortured (oh...violence again).

I think this thread has been polluted by the excess uninformed generalizations by some posters about those who disagree with them. Better luck next time...
