Just a reminder, if you care about reducing lives lost a diet that includes meat responsibility in the right proportions will result in significantly less lives lost than eating a salad.

Compared to mountain-raised beef eating beef will result in significantly FEWER lives lost than a salad. One salad probably cost quite a few insects and mice their lives to make. A mountain-raised cow is wild grazed, so the land isnt suitable for crops, and no animals other than the cow dies. So one cow makes 3000 meals, thats a much better deal than the multiple deaths per plate you expect from a salad.

“Our recent study reveals that shifting from current diets to healthier, more plant-based ones could prevent up to 236,000 premature deaths around the world and boost global GDP -- simply by improving air quality.

Healthier diets, cleaner air

According to the World Health Organization, there were 4 million premature deaths linked to outdoor air pollution in 2019. Agriculture is responsible for roughly one-fifth of these deaths”

Court Orders FIR Against MLA Bal Mukundacharya in Assault Case: Accused of Spitting and Kicking Dalit's Chest

Mukundacharya had won the Hawa Mahal seat by defeating Congress candidate RR Tiwari by a thin margin of 974 votes. He went around his constituency shutting down shops selling non-vegetarian food a day after being elected and later apologised for his actions after people complained about him to the National Human Rights Commission.

    > Hitler was a vegetarian

    Common misconception, often lobbed as vegans;

    "Hitler's diet was primarily vegetarian throughout the latter part of his life; however, he didn't adopt a vegetarian diet for moral reasons, but because he suffered from gastric problems."

    This is an intriguing finding and requires more study including studies with noncaucasion people.

    may be in the genes, study finds

    Researchers have identified genes linked to vegetarianism. This may help explain why some people who are motivated to give up meat for ethical, environmental or health reasons, don't always adhere.

    lazcht, to vegetarian

    hi peeps do you eat well? recently I didn't have time to upload stuff here, so have my recent food pic:

    misoa (thin rice noodle) with tomato egg drop soup 🍜

    lazcht,

    @anianimalsmoe you're right tho, Chinese vegetarian food often incorporate lot of meat substitute like seitan and other frozen plant-based meats, I rarely eat those cause too many fat and MSG, unless I wanna make hotpot 😅

    Indonesian salads are good, and I think we can skip the carbs, it's often involving peanut sauce, tofu and beansprouts. try googling recipe for: ketoprak, gado-gado, rujak buah (this is just sliced fruits and sweet potato with dipping sauce). asinan Bogor doesn't use peanut sauce but soupy vinegar (I doubt this one is healthy but delish lol).
