Let’s hope so I’m hungry

I switched to filet of fish , fries and a shake. gave up the QPs . 

Lol, I really don't consider myself to be such a healthy eater, but I am happy to report that I gave up fast food years before I gave up meat. Giving up diner burgers was a lot harder than giving up McDonald's.

Me too.. I eat fairly well.  Momentary lapses of course ... I’m chewing on celery as I watch golf.

For a year or two I've been kicking around the idea of going to a pescatarian diet, ever since @slats and a couple of other people were talking about it in another thread a while back. It sounds like something I could do if I put a little effort into it. 

Veganism seems like quite a stretch to me personally, but hey, if it works for you and you feel good on it more power to you. I've had a few very tasty vegan dishes in my day, so it's not hard to imagine making a lifestyle out of it.

We need to start going cannibal.

I mean, seriously. It solves both world hunger AND overpopulation. It's so obvious!

I once saw two charity commercials in a row. The first one showed the horrible plight of children in underdeveloped countries who face starvation in their day to day life in 2017. The next commercial was for the overabundance of animals in shelters.

 

I turned to my wife and said, "Its like the problem is trying to solve itself ". 

 

 

 

 

I didnt get any that night.

Not quite.  The food we use to feed animals could feed the entire world.  As for why we have so many animals, that's completely artificial.  These animals are bred into existence to meet the demand for meat.  In other words, if people didn't eat meat (or radically cut down), it would be much easier to feed the world w/ the grain that is instead fed to animals.

I guess satirical humor (in bad taste....no pun intended) needs to be indicated?

Humor is always fine by me (especially if it's funny!)  I don't think I saw this movie if it's a movie reference.  If it's just a meme you created then it's a so-so joke imo.  (I'm not offended or anything like that.  I think I've made similar jokes in the past).  I'm not trying to browbeat people here.  Just trying to give info to those who are willing to hear it.

Huge environmental impact is the bigger concern imo

A family member of mine is a vegan and a huge animal rights activist.  He also designs vegan fair trade shoes, clothes, and accessories.  He's won a few awards in that community.

As CTM says, the environmental impact of meat is far greater than of cars and other sources of greenhouse gases.  And yes, we could feed the whole world, easily, with the food we use for animals.
