Capture their methane output as a renewable energy source. I see thousands of acres of cows in stalls with funnels up their ass. Technically we'd be vegan as long as we didn't eat them. Drinking Beverage

Meat is good, as it is the only protein source that is not cut in half when you digest it.

I haven't searched all the thousands of posts here, and haven't noticed a search button...but I believe this is far too important a topic to not have its own thread.

Why is this "far too important a topic"?

Animal protein is considered to be a more “complete” protein. What do I mean by that? Protein from things such as chicken or beef contain all the necessary amino acids our body needs to make new protein since animal proteins are most similar to the ones found in our body. Proteins from plant sources such as soy or vegetables generally do not contain all of the essential amino acids that our body needs.

The importance of vegan philosophy is that there is precious little vegan science. Drinking Beverage

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.
