    All the trauma and stress that the animal suffered is transfered to us when we eat their flesh

    And yet hunting is exponentially more humane than the standard practices of the meat industry.

    I think most humans would agree that they would prefer that animals not be subject to torture, neglect, avoidable pain and suffering.

    Corporations on the other hand tend to choose higher profits and higher operating efficiency over moral and ethical considerations and that is the heart of the problem.

    I think if you're raised with a healthy vegetarian diet then it's great. However, to people who grew up eating meat, being vegetarian just isn't a fun prospect. Meat is one of the most enjoyable foods, period.

    People are addicted to meat. If you have the ability to be strong and be vegetarian, you should.

    I’m sure Trujillo could tell us the advantages of horse meat also.

    'Im vegan" is the new "I'm focusing on my cardio"

    My girl is vegetarian, so I’m sorta vegetarian. Other than losing weight which quitting booze that had a lot to do with that, I haven’t noticed moods or anything. I still eat meat but only when we’re out and about. I grew up eating tacos every week in San Diego and Mexico so I could never not eat meat but I feel healthier rarely eating meat because red meat literally just sits in your instestinss and moves like a sloth through your digestive system.

    Most vegans and vegetarians would prefer not to discuss the topic and be left alone.

    The issue lies predominantly with young new vegetarians who get excited about it because it is new to them and so they feel the need to talk to everyone about it.

    These people annoy me more than they annoy you because they cast a bad light on the whole veg community when they really represent a small vocal minority (and half of them probably wind up eating burgers a year later).

    The Rishis believed when you consume animal flesh, you also absorb its death agony.

    Evidently Abel is a follower of such preaching.

    That documentary is pseudoscience. They make a couple good points but it's mostly garbage.

    It isn't necessarily beyond reason to consider elevated cortisol to be transferable in some manner, via ingestion of a creature with elevated levels.

    Meaning, if I were you, I wouldn't write off entirely the possibility of high levels of a specific hormone in a creature, having a behavioral effect on the animal which consumes it.

    As a Vegetarian the process of factory farming is what turned me off to meat, there are far more humane sources of meat and hunting for food is certainly one of them.
    If I ever go back to meat(probably will not) I will get locally sourced meat and certainly have no issues with people hunting for their food, I actually respect it.
