    I completely agree with you. It’s one more thing that reinforces my gut feeling that his entire presidency is an act. Controlled opposition. What crazy, crazy times we're living in, huh?

    If she was a vegetarian (as opposed to vegan) then it was probably the dairy that kept her overweight. Either that or junk food, but certainly not healthy, plant-based whole foods.

    So you were personally involved in each of those studies? Don't make me laugh. It looks like you didn't even read them. You are by far the biggest cheerleader for the keto trend out of anyone I have ever encountered in my life. You're free to eat what you want, but the reality that you don't want to accept is that keto is horrible in the long run. It may give you short-term results, but get back to me 20 years from now, when your clogged arteries cause you to have a heart attack or stroke. As for diabetes, like I said to HB, nobody claimed it directly caused diabetes, but that it increased the risk. Deny, deny, deny all you want, but you'll see eventually. Mark my words. No need to eat corpses or the pus-filled secretions of exploited animals.

    Simply stating that doesn't make it true. Inflammation is a factor in insulin resistance (even Paleo doctors will tell you that) and inflammation is linked to acidic foods. So yes, acidity is indeed a factor when it comes to insulin resistance. At least with type 2 diabetes. As for fruit, many people assume that certain fruits are acidic (simply because they are sour / citrusy) when in fact they are actually the opposite. As you can see from this excerpt below: "A diet rich in animal protein may favor net acid intake, while most fruits and vegetables form alkaline precursors that neutralize the acidity," wrote Dr. Guy Fagherazzi and Dr. Francoise Clavel-Chapelon, of the Center for Research in Epidemiology and Population Health at INSERM, in Paris. "Contrary to what is generally believed, most fruits -- such as peaches, apples, pears, bananas and even lemons and oranges -- actually reduce dietary acid load once the body has processed them.” Although some fruits are more acidic than others, it is silly and wrong to demonize a God-given food while at the same time ignoring that the foods well known to be acidic are animal products, such as meat and dairy.

    lol. Your scenario has nothing to do with the studies. I will take the word of numerous doctors and researchers who have conducted long-term studies, over the word of a guy on the Internet who is clearly the biggest fan of Keto to ever walk the face of the earth. :p

    Another one for you. This was a study done in China. https://www.pcrm.org/health/medNews/diabetes-risk-increases-with-meat-intake Meat consumption is associated with risk for developing type 2 diabetes, according to a new study published in the American Journal of Epidemiology. Researchers followed the diets and disease risk of 63,257 participants from the Singapore Chinese Health Study and found that those who consumed the most red meat (e.g., pork, beef, lamb), poultry, and fish had an increased risk for type 2 diabetes by 23, 15, and 7 percent, respectively, compared with those who consumed the least. In a separate analysis, the authors found that as heme iron increased, so did the risk for diabetes. Other studies have published similar findings, including the Adventist Health Study-2, which showed that as more animal products, such as red meat and fish, are included in the diet, increase for diabetes risk follows. https://academic.oup.com/aje/article/186/7/824/3848997

    That wasn't the claim. At least from what I heard. The claim was that there was an increased risk of diabetes, as the level of animal products increases. And I've heard that before, from a number of sources. Here is a study: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3942738/ "Meat consumption is consistently associated with diabetes risk." Here's something else to look at: https://www.webmd.com/diabetes/news/20131112/meat-products-could-raise-diabetes-risk-study#1 And this: http://www.foxnews.com/health/2014/04/15/too-much-animal-protein-linked-to-increased-diabetes-risk.html An excerpt:

    This is interesting. From an article on lewrockwell.com: Also, troubling is the fact that the STAR tabloid that first hyped and then allegedly conducted, the flawed "test" was owned by Robert Altman – a close friend, a college classmate, political supporter, major donor and federal appointee of Bill Clinton. The Editor later admitted that no sample of DNA was ever obtained from Bill Clinton and that the incomplete DNA test included in the Starr Report had been used to compare with a sample obtained by Danney Williams. The Editor Phil Bunton would also later admit he had not seen written test results.

    I don't buy that. Even Snopes – a liberal, Clinton supporting source – gave it a verdict of 'unproven.' A remainder of doubt There were a couple of issues with the reliability of the paternity test, however. One was its origin: the tabloids. Despite running with the story, Time‘s only source for the Clinton paternity results was Star magazine (indeed, The Clintons’ War on Women co-author and former Donald Trump adviser Roger Stone claims there is no evidence the test was ever conducted). The other was a 1999 piece published in Slate arguing that because it was based on the limited analysis provided in the Starr Report and not a new DNA sample, the test results were inconclusive: The FBI performed two genetic fingerprinting tests on the president’s DNA. The Starr report, for unexplained reasons, gives data only for the less specific of the two tests. In fact, this test is imprecise enough that it would probably not be persuasive to a judge. Dr. George Riley of Genelex–a well-regarded forensic DNA lab–calculates that the genetic fingerprint given in the Starr report will most likely yield a so-called “paternity index” of only 20 to 30. In other words, a positive test would mean that President Clinton is only 20 to 30 times more likely than a random Caucasian male to be Danny Williams’ father. This would be suggestive but not conclusive. (50,000 white men in Arkansas would get the same test results.) The legal threshold is 100. At best the genetic fingerprint contained in the Starr report can only yield a paternity index of 120. The actual value depends on the mother’s DNA. https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/bill-clinton-illegitimate-son/

    Maybe it has something to do with their spiritual beliefs? Leftists tend to be more secular and godless… which means no true hope, and nothing beyond this life. So maybe when they're in a deep depression, suicide seems like a good solution, at that time. When in fact, the exact opposite is true.

    You brought up a number of excellent points, and you have no idea how happy I am that there’s someone else here who sees it the same way… Finally! I'm glad that you alluded to the silly stereotype that non-meateaters aren't manly. I've thought about this, and I think the exact opposite is true. In my view, a true man is a protector of the weak and defenseless, not one who harms innocent beings (babies, really.) Also, It takes courage and self-confidence to go against the crowd and do what one feels is right, so I admire men who go vegan, especially when it is done for the animals. I love that Tolstoy quote you referred to, and there are a number of very wise men throughout history who have said something similar. I do think that when we turn our eyes away from the violence and horror that goes on every day in slaughterhouses, we become sort of hard-hearted. But the opposite is true when one widens their circle of mercy and love, to include animals (also creations of God.) I think it not only makes an individual more empathetic, but society overall. That reminds me of a famous quote… “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” It makes sense to me, because when we value the rights and dignity of the very least among us… how much more will we value human rights and peace with others? Thanks so much for chiming in here, I think yours is the best post on this thread. :)

    There are lots of good reasons to ditch dairy, but this quote eloquently sums up my top reason. If you're not willing to watch the video I posted, at least read this quote... "I became a vegan the day I watched a video of a calf being born on a factory farm. The baby was dragged away from his mother before he hit the ground. The helpless calf strained its head backwards to find his mother. The mother bolted after her son and exploded into a rage when the rancher slammed the gate on her. She wailed the saddest noise I’d ever heard an animal make, and then thrashed and... dug into the ground, burying her face in the muddy placenta. I had no idea what was happening respecting brain chemistry, animal instinct, or whatever. I just knew that this was deeply wrong. I just knew that such suffering could never be worth the taste of milk and veal. I empathized with the cow and the calf and, in so doing, my life changed." - James McWilliams

    Something like 75% of the worlds population is lactose intolerant. If that isn't a clue for you that your above statement is wrong, then I don't know what to tell you. Not to mention that the dairy industry is absolutely abhorrent. There is no need for a grown adult to drink breastmilk.

    Sorry, I was ordering some takeout. You don't really need that much… Just a few tablespoons. Maybe more depending on the length of one's hair. I think I'm due for a deep conditioner. I want to get more into the natural DIY stuff. Donnay knows a lot about that stuff, and sells those kinds of products.

    lol. I'm not even going to argue with you, because you are more hard-core into that diet than anyone else here, and it is clear that nothing anyone says would ever change your mind. I think you're wrong on multiple levels, but you do you. I almost always use olive oil, but I'm going to try to use less oil in general. I already get enough healthy fats from things like avocado, nuts, etc.

    The animal industries are notorious for funding false or misleading studies. There's enough corporatism to go around for everybody. To me it's absurd and laughable that anyone would think eating lard, carcasses, and the product of death and enslavement is healthier than eating fresh, healthy whole foods that we were designed to eat. But you guys can do whatever the heck you want to do. Enjoy your constipation. ;)

    You said "Most are bat $#@! crazy." Which doesn't sound like you were talking only about the ones referenced in that article. #3 Is also untrue. But whatever. I really don't want to argue with you. I couldn't care less about your neg rep. However I do find it funny that you felt the need to publicly tell everyone that you -repped me. That seems to be an attention-seeking move, so who is the snowflake here?

    You know what is rude? (not to mention hateful) Going around saying that all vegans are batshit crazy, but I didn't -rep you or lash out at you about that. Furthermore, you managed to completely miss the point, and I already explained that to AF, but I guess you didn't read that post? I wasn't talking about meateaters in general when I brought up the Jeffrey Dahmer comment, I was specifically talking about the bizarreness of claiming to adore animals but then killing/eating them. And even that was said in a sort of tongue-in-cheek way, which obviously did not come across… But I would think that you of all people would understand that not everything is to be taken so literally/seriously. But if you were offended by this, I'm sorry, I will exit your safe space. I am absolutely against forcing people to do anything. So I don't know where that came from, because we were talking about completely other things. Anyway, I've got other far more important things I have to do today, besides sit around on this forum, so I'm leaving this discussion for now.
