I am a vegetarian, have been vegan before, not for ethical reasons...food just grosses me out sometimes and I have 'control' issues.
Controversial. Pros and cons, - Pros of eating meat is you have a lot more variety when you go to restaurants and just in general, vegetarianism is limiting. I think eating a balanced diet including meat is probably an easier way to get proper nutrition. I struggle with 'proper nutrition'.
Good the bad. - We are lucky if we have the option to choose what we want to eat...I am grateful that I can eat what I like, whenever I want.
Ethical or health? - Neither. Because I got grossed out when I was 12 at a certain Colonel chicken restaurant by veins and cartilage and at the same time learned in school how beef was 'aged' and found my cat dead in a ditch. I decided I wasn't eating meat, and equated ageing meat to roadkill (my cat). And I was a defiant 12 year old girl. People kept telling me I couldn't - so I did. Don't try to tell a 12 year old girl she has to do something!
What do you believe? - I believe I would be healthier if I ate meat, but I don't like it - the texture mainly. I am covered in bruises often, and do supplement B12 + iron. I'm pretty picky and my "limited" diet is probably to blame.
Who do you believe? - I believe there are arguments for everything, and trends and popular ideas get introduced and debunked daily. Who cares? I don't. Live and let live, and if animals are farmed and slaughtered humanely, thats fine. Plants are living too, and get killed to be eaten.
I also think if you take it down to the basics, vegetables are most often grown in the ground which includes animal feces and carcases that help to fertilize. And vegetables have bugs on them, tiny bugs, some that you've probably eaten - bugs are animals too. You'd have to eat hydroponic vegetables or something exclusively to truly not eat animals.
