Just in from Mercola. This doesn't fly in the face of vegetarians since most vegetarians do eat animal products (eggs & dairy) just not meat. But this does radically come against the politics of veganism which is always telling us that cows are causing global warming and eating monocrops like soy and corn is less damaging. Turns out that the opposite is true. Grazing cattle on grassland actually REDUCES greenhouse gas. This is a well researched article.

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

The more I learn the more I love everything produce.
I am transitioning to being a vegetarian once again.
My goal is to be meat free by May.

There are a lot of vegetarian/vegans on the team.
Funny thing, the more you watch about eating less meat the more committed you are to vegetarianism, and I have become more committed to eating more meat, less (or no grain) after watching several documentaries in that regard.

That's why I like this team. It's all just about good food.

Are their any vegetarians/vegans on our board? I have cut down my meat intake a lot over the past year, but after watching a couple of documentaries this weekend, I am commited to eating it even less. I was wondering what your motivations were and if you feel "healthier" since changing your diet.
