Re: “$1 for Every Vegan

"Humans are not evolved to eat all vegan diets. (Please don't say that it's fine because apes do it. We are not apes, by the way.) There is so much evidence of this, not just based on science, but also on millennia of human history. Yes, of course, we should drastically cut down on meat. Meat should be nothing but sprinkles. Perhaps in the future we will evolve to be vegans in a way that supports our bodies, but that doesn't happen over night. In the meantime, feel free to quit telling me what's best for my body. People have different requirements. I don't mind that you're vegan and I'm glad it works for you and your body's specific needs, but please stop with the assumptions that everyone is like you. "

1. All essential nutrients can be found from plant foods and in nature. You won't be able to list one that isn't.
2. Just because we have eaten meat throughout history, it doesn't mean we are best suited to, or should in the modern era, when we have the choice to eat an abundance of plant food instead.
3. I don't want to tell you what to do, but I'm willing to bet both of my balls that you don't track every nutrient that passes through your body, have not even thought about what essential nutrients it is you're getting from meat that you feel you would lack as a vegan, and have no intentions to measure and balance your meat intake based on your findings. You probably eat meat everyday which you buy in the supermarket, which has nothing to do with human history, and you probably eat dairy, which as you may know, we've only been doing for 10,000 years, and thousands of years less than that as a global trend. For the other 190,000 years of homo sapien history, we weren't known to suck on cow nipples shortly after they've given birth.

I'll throw my hands up and say fair enough, if you do try and limit your meat in-take to only what is needed, and you've thrown out truly unnatural practices like eating baby cow milk and chicken periods. But if you've written this absolute pissfest of an article and appealed to the necessity of eating animals, but still eat them as much as you like, then this is seriously pathetic.
