    If people are vegatarian because they feel that it is a healthier diet, good for them. But if people are vegatarian because an animals life was taken to provide the meat, must also decide what to do with leather.

    Pretty sure worthington got it from Loma Linda which they purchased.......and then both were bought by kellogg.

    They are probably exactly the same

    edit: looks like they split again in 2015


    sidenote...if you ever get bored the history of kellogg/post/sda on the Wikipedia is very interesting

    Yes I have heard of them. The point I was making is that if you are a vegatarian because of the killing of animals, then you cannot be using leather. That would be a double standard.

    We need to consume life to continue to exist.
    Prioritizing because we somehow are more advanced or should know better is plain stupid. Plants are alive too and we should give respect to anything we consume.

    Being vegitarian is promoting companies like Bayer monsanto and ADM just as much as eating pen raised animals and is just as cancer causing.

    Studies are manipulated and we are lied to for profit.

    For centuries humans have eaten animals but only since the plant based diet have we seen diabetes cancer autism and other genetic diseases rise dramatically.

    Don't believe the media hype.

    Pasture raised animals and wild caught fish are our best food sources.

    I'm not vegetarian but I limit my meat consumption for the obvious health benefits

    Doesn't matter if your vegetarian or meat eater in todays mass commercial farming system you will have to take supplements to get anywhere close to a balanced diet (there is no profit for a farmer to resupply proper nutrition to the land)

    As someone who eats meat I personally find it hypocritical for someone to eat meat who wouldn't be prepared to kill and butcher there own, food doesn't come from a supermarket.

    Nobody agrees with that. But it's not just meat eaters who are to be blamed. It's the whole food industry. It's about corporate farming for profit. Vegans are as much to blame if you shop at a grocery store or buy at a restaurant.

    Someday people will realize we are all in it together. It's a society issue.
