    In a post-carnivore world it would only be a matter of time before some deadly broccoli or radish virus would mutate and find its way into the human body.

    I don't buy that. The thing is a lot of vegans spend years eating meat and building a strong foundation, which thay can maintain once they become educated vegans.

    What I would like to see happen is an experiment where certain babies are placed on a strictly vegan diet (no mother's milk only vegan baby formula), others on a vegetarian diet and others on an omnivore diet. Then, we can watch these babies grow up and see how they turn out.

    Although most likely unethical, I think such an experiment will give us a better picture of which dietary preference is the best. The experiment be even better if we used twins, and gave 1 twin a vegan diet and the other an omnivore diet.

    If you are vegan or vegetarian your chances will be worse. We haven't actually done studies on these, because they would probably not pass any ethical boards. However, we can look to certain cultures in India, who have been vegan/vegetarian for generations. They don't produce great athletes.
    Japanese eat meat and they have the highest life expectancy. Canadians eat meat, and they are in Top 10 life expectancy. Top 15 countries with highest life expectancies are all traditionally meat eaters.

    Meat is not the problem with America. We have poor health and social support, and we eat too much.

    LMAO @ Hantavirus. More like CANtavirus. An average of 2-3 annual cases in my neck of the woods. Nothing to fear. Trust me.

    Or you know... don't eat exotic animals riddled with diseases that could jump to humans, in unrefrigerated, unsanitized open air markets where people butcher animals, with guts and blood dripping everywhere

    Just compare babies born to Jain parents and babies born to non Jains.
    Jains are vegetarian.
