When people find out that you eat a plant-based diet, many reactions usually arise. Lots of people are genuinely interested, ask some questions and then go about their merry way. There are others, however, that launch into a strange song and dance number from the smash Broadway musical, “You’re Crazy, Meat is Delicious! Bacon!!”…it’s a romantic comedy.

Everybody’s individual diet choices aside, there is compelling scientific evidence for why a plant-based diet is better for our health, better for the environment and, beyond obviously, better for animals. Yet, people still cling to misinformation like a one of the few available life vests on the Titanic, watching the ship go down around them but insisting that everything is alright because they aren’t drowning. Yet.

From claims of getting sick less often, superior protein sources and that if we didn’t eat animals they would take over the world (this is a thing. People say this), there are some pretty laughable reasons for the continued inclusion of animals products in human diets and its hard not to get really annoyed when you hear them over and over. Especially when you know the truth. Fortunatley, this cat has no qualms about putting these claims right in their place and doesn’t care how irritated he appears in the process. He’s a straight shooter, and right now he’s gunning for pure inanity.

Here\'s another argument.

You are what you eat.

While they may be cute and even adorable, farmed meat (and dairy) animals are docile, stupid (stupefied), don\'t think for themselves, don\'t easily adapt, are full of disease and stress, and (obviously) follow \'herd mentality\'.

I don\'t want to be like that. None of these qualities are useful towards my wellbeing.

Plants, on the other hand, dig deeper, reach higher, find their way around obstacles easily, bear fruit, are full of useful energy and use it far more efficiently, and adapt far more quickly to their environment. They also make far better use of the natural resources available to them (seeds can lie dormant for decades, until the circumstances are right for them to sprout). Many plants even have their own self-defence mechanisms against pests, and most have mechanisms to ensure the survival of their own species.

All of these qualities are useful towards my wellbeing and evolution.

I'm slowly working my way into a vegetarian diet. Meat is starting to make me ill. I do hate the thought of eating a poor animal as well. I'm easing into it as it's so new and creating meals is a challenge lol but I'm getting there.

Actually, yes, we are. This whole "human is better and above everything else" is destroying the planet.

Well that's actually the smartest thing you've said so far Jeanette. And i believe she met "animls" in the sense that we are civilized and suppose to be intelligent, not in the literal sense.

Evolution doesn't allows equate to intelligence Ken Starr. And Jeanette Flåterud i have to call out your stupid ass article post, one i dealt with a few weeks ago with a cousin. First of it's from Australia, written by some douche bag australian blogger. Second, and you don't have to be Einstein to figure this equation out, 75% of the worlds grains, veggies, and fruits is reserved for livestock. Enough to feed the world over twice. So even if you want to take this ridiculous bs seriouly, meat eaters would be twice as responsible for this mice devastation. You're contributing world hunger and the death of both the animal who feed on the grains, and the mouse. This is very similar to the idiots who believe in this plant pain crap.

Google "paleo".

I'm very aware of the stupid paleo diet. I'd personally never go on a diet that has zero evidence of its success. It is a modern fad diet that will flop like all the others in the past when people ten years from now start seeing the results. Nothing today is anywhere close to what they had in the Paleolithic era.

Sigh. Why can't we all just stop judging and shaming?
