Veganism, etc

Just a little upset by the whole concept of veganism and how it's always (almost literately) forced down your throat whenever people talk of health or righteousness... which is not surprising now that I come to think of it.

Anyway, wrote a little scientific rant about the whole thing and set my mind to write an article about it... The truth is, it's a personal decision that, if you make it, is essentially bad for your health (albeit arguably better for the animals). Not to say mine, about my preference of meat (which is based on my personal beliefs) is actually any healthier, but still.

Interesting that with that kind of technology, which is in our reach at the moment, you could make people carnivores as well... with the proper microbial gut flora, eating raw meat would not be toxic, etc. But then this then becomes an almost moral / psychological issue.
