Anyone who says "I don't eat meat because if bugs me they kill animals" is fooling themselves. Unless you are a true true veggie eater your entire diet probably has animal products in it. Even the "glaze" most bakeries/grocery stores use to prevetn breads/muffins from sticking to the pan is made from animal products. You would have to change your *entire* life to be truely "helping animals" or else you are just kidding yourself.

And yes, I would eat snake if it was offered to me.

I am a vegan. I TRY to exclude animal products from my life, but of course, it's not completely possible. I just do it as much as I can.

And even still, the land used to farm all those products claims more lives yet. There really isn't any way to maintain ones life while avoiding taking the lives of others on this planet. To live you have to take life... it is virtually impossible for anyone to avoid that.

i thought vegan was tottaly no cheese or anything. so if u eat that can u still be a vegan? humans are meant to eat meat. unless u are a culture who has evolved eating little meat such as asian cultures. in general phycologists think people use vegetrianism as a masakistic action. most become weak and pail sick. its not that i have anything against vegetarians at all. im sure if u grew up hunting for food and where actually a part of gatherign food u would. jsut the way they kill animals now adays really sucks

When I was living in Taipei, Taiwan, there is an infamous place called, "Snake Alley," although it has tamed the past few decades, but they still put on shows for the tourists. Hold you breath now, if you are queezy... they tie the snake up by neck and cut it open from the vent while it is still alive. Take out the heart and show it to all the tourists how long it continues to beat for (5 minutes or so). They mix some snake blood with some liquor and then make some soup with the meat. Apparently, the blood is good for you. All of this was about $10-15 Canadian. Quite a horror for this herp enthusiast. They also chopped up softshelled turtles alive as well.

I passed on them all.


Cheers,
JJ

I agree with this. I wouldn't keep snakes if I didn't think this was true. For things to live, other things have to die. The reason I am vegan is because I don't believe in causing unneeded suffering (bad treatment with farming..they are not all like this of course, but a lot of them are), and for health reasons. I don't see killing and eating a cow as bad. People need to eat. I do, however, see cramping 600 cows in a small amount of acres, fattening them up unnaturally, and then slaughterning them inhumanely as unneeded suffering, and it shouldn't happen. I see being vegan/vegetarian as taking a stand against inhumanity. It's a small part to play in the world, and it really doesn't make a difference because not enough people are veg, but it makes me feel like I've done something good. I am also vegan because it makes my body feel excellent. When your body tells you that something is right, you go with it..so I have.

Sorry for the babble.

Vegans don't use animal products.
And This is not true. The vegans that become pale and sick become that way because they are not eating healthy. Just omitting dairy and meat from your diet doesn't mean that you're healthy. You have to do a lot of research and get a nutrition plan. I've been vegan for a little over two years now, and my body has never felt better. I am not too thin or too big, my skin is clear, and everything works right. I am very healthy, because I'm doing it right. There are a lot of meat eaters that are very unhealthy, too, you know.

forsure. there are meat eaters that are unhealthy. its all about balance. somwhere in the middle lies the truth. glad u feel good. i just read that in a book. my auntie used to work in a health food store and she was a veg. and she had to stop because she seen what years of beign a vegetarian can do if your body isnt made for it. and all those people did knwo diets and everthing she said she coudl tell because of what they bought and things they told her.

peace

The only herp I ate was alligator, that was actually really good. I wouldn't mind trying Rattle Snake meat. I believing in trying almost anything once.

I USED to be a vegetarian, and I found that I was craving meat all too much no matter how much iron and protein I pumped into my body. Let's face it, humans are designed to be omnivorous.
