    boredom and existential pain for the suffering of those still being

    Pork is white meat not red meat.. Bacon is the pork belly and it’s not
    processed , it’s only smoked…. So fuck off with your bull shit lies.

    what about processed fish or poultry… i love jerky turkey

  14. rawstarmusic says:

    I don’t buy red meat. I eat fish, chicken, eggs and cheese for animal
    products. There is no cancer alert for ocean fish is there? Though it can
    be processed as well but mostly simply frozen and don’t have to look good.

  16. Christian Maida says:

    I eat very little to no red meat in my diet. I’d say within the passed 4
    months I’ve eaten beef and/or pork 5 or less times in total. I’ve been
    eating like this for a little over a year now and as a result I’ve lost
    about 30 lbs which really helped my self esteem and overall mood. :)

    who cares? you get cancer from everything anyway, hell even if you avoid
    all things that cause cancer u can still get cancer.

    i rather live a short enjoyable life than a long baconless one

    Eating meat is what made humans evolve and grow a larger brain and become
    smarter. There is more nutrition in same weight of meat as in any other
    vegetable etc. Our brain consumes 20%+ of all the calories we consume.
    Processed meat I can understand isn’t healthy. But normal red meat is GOOD
    for you at least in reasonable quantity.
    Enough of vegans and their idiocy. Vegans only exist because we have
    Supermarkets. If we didn’t have that they would have no way to supplement
    their diet for minerals and protein. Before some Vegan MORON says Spinach
    has protein, durrr. Sure, but Spinach is not indigenous plant everywhere,
    same applies to the rest. Potatoes for example didn’t exist in Europe
