Wow, that is... amazing! I can't believe I wasn't reading satire when I went through that.
Vitamin A and D?! Come on, at least talk about B12, the only vitamin veg*ns really run into an issue with. I love how fast he is to say that "oh sure, you can
get them from plants... but uh, the body can't use them well!"
If you are morally concerned about the welfare of animals, as you should be, it is better to buy meat farmed ethically than it is to shun meat altogether, because that makes the entire market swing towards ethical methods and has a bigger impact than resorting to (self-harming) vegetarian protest.
The Economist magazine's special report (2006) explained that buying meat from those conforming to ethical standards is more effective at changing the industry than simply abstaining from meat altogether - "consumption, rather than non-consumption" is "far more likely to produce results"
And here is where it's obvious he just doesn't get the point. I haven't heard many veg*ns say that animal welfare
is their reason for doing it. He never once mentions animal rights.
The fact of the matter is, veg*nism will
work. You can be short sighted and ignorant all you want... But eventually the inhumanity and impracticality of the animals as products industry will become common knowledge, and it'll slowly crumble. It's a waste of life, a waste of land and is wasting away our planet; "going green" is becoming some huge fad now. Not eating beef is one of the best ways you can do that, and people will catch on.
