time to kidnap school children and try out their tender thighs and buttock.
My biology teacher tells me this, I should threaten to eat him.
time to invest in some farmland and raise my own cows and chickens?
right... in the same way gas prices inch up every so often and people still complain... some people have a tighter budgets i suppose
We can't let the fucking hippies win.
NY Times is a bunch of tree huggers
why is animal protein superior to plant protein?
scroll down to Dietary Protein Quality, Digestion and Utilization
are you a plant?
no but friends are turning vegan on me and i want to change their mind
thanks again ceaze
If you need major details, Lyle McD has a whole book about protein
if it is about beef prices going up (didn't read it), that happened when I lived in argentina. They eat a sick amount of beef (about 50 percent more than americans). When prices started to go up because of demand and exports, everyone got really upset. ... strikes and whatnot.
thats funny cause the price of meat is going up CAUSE of oil
the price of feed is going up because the increasing demand to use that same feed to make ethanol. then there is the increasing cost of transportation
I've seen enough vegans to know i don't want to look like that.
Thanks, I do my part for this forum
yeah, my nutrion professor in college told me this also.
Pretty soon meat will be so expensive you'll see me on the side of the road, cane pole in hand fishing in the canals like the Haitians and Jamaicans.
It's the transfer or usable sources of some stuff like that.
Basically a plant starts with 100% sources because it takes in everything from the earth and sun via photosynthesis.
Every consumer (primary, secondary, tiercherary) loses 90% upon next level consumption. Unfortunately, when eating animal meat we are always AT LEAST secondary and often tiercherary consumers.
For instance... A plant has 100% energy source to begin with. As a cow eats that the cow can only get 10% of that. As we eat the cow we only get 10% of that... So we are really getting only 1% of what the plant really started off with.
I forget how this would correlate directly to protein, but my professor discussed it. Maybe someone else can chime in.
Personally, I don't give a fuck. I like meat and I eat it. End of story.
The hungry can also buy corn. I buy it all the time when I'm hungry. Not the corn meant for cattle, but the corn meant for human consumption. You can get it at the supermarket. And guess what? It's government subsidized.
and its going up in price too cause of ethanol demand. there have been riots in mexico over it
