I have been a vegetarian for 13 years and the smell of some kinds of meat actually make my mouth water. It's funny because my kids will say, "Oh! That stinks!" Meanwhile, I am thinking it smells pretty good. (I wish I wasn't this way, though)
There is this little stand in a mall near my house that sells all of that smoked meat junk, and the other day they were actually FRYING some right there. Half the malls air was clogged with that meaty death fog and I almost passed out
I've always thought it smells like vomit, luckily vegan parmesan doesn't smell nearly as bad!!
I'm mainly affected by the look of things, meat is usually cooked with herbs/spices/seasoning so it can often smell ok. Raw meat/seafood smell is sooo disgusting. Even as a meateating kid I used to hold my breath walking past the butchers or fishmongers - yuck! When I went out with friends a couple of months ago they had lobster & it made me feel so ill to watch them tear apart a whole creature
Parmesan cheese probably contains rennet. Rennet is the stomach enzyme that babies, neonates, of all mammals, use to help them digest their mother's milk, and contributes to the smell of baby vomit -- which people sometimes called "cheese" with good reason. Both cheese and baby vomit, are milk, of the animal's mother, or the human's mother, that has been acted upon by stomach enzymes. In baby vomit, the milk is acted upon by enzymes, in the baby's stomach; in cheese, the baby's stomach is cut out of the baby, after the baby is killed, and then added to the milk that people have taken from its mother, and placed in a bowl, or whatever.
Baby vomit: milk partially digested by stomach enzymes; the milk is drawn into the baby's stomach by the baby; then the mixture is ejected from the baby's stomach by the baby.
Cheese: milk partially digested by stomach enzymes; the enzymes are acquired by killing the baby and cutting out its stomach; then, because its baby is dead, the milk is drawn from the mother by someone other than the baby, and mixed with the enzymes from its mother, in a bowl.
ewww, i'm totally grossed out about the vomit cheese thing. and yes, meat makes me dizzy and nautious. my great-grandmother lives with us and she cooks chicken, like all the time. i actually have to leave because i get nautious and dizzy. you know when you;re nautious and your mouth starts watering cause you wanna spew!? that happens to me. it's so embarrassing that my house smells like when my boy friend (j fizzle 81) comes over. i've recently started to not come home because of it. pretty gross stuff. burning flesh, yum!!!!
