Quote# 120951

“You are what you eat”, is a slogan that I love to use to show the mental aspect of vegetarianism. When animals are slaughtered, fear and aggression enzymes are shot into their muscle tissue. They remain in the meat until the consumer ingests the flesh and adapts the same emotions. Fruits and vegetables do not have emotions; therefore, when they are picked they do not release any emotional cells prior to digestion. The enzymes within fruits and vegetables supply the body with sufficient nutrients that will always uphold a healthy state of mind.

actually, any proper slaughterhouse will kill the animals before they have any notion that anything dangerous is going on. not only is it more humane, it is more efficient and cheaper.

"Fruits and vegetables do not have emotions; therefore, when they are picked they do not release any emotional cells prior to digestion."

This is blatantly false. For example, here is L. Ron Hubbard demonstrating that this particular tomato has engrams left over from it's previous life that proves it had been digested by tax auditors during an Internal Revenue Service plot to commit genocide on another planet in loyalty to Xenu. Can you see the reading on the scale? The E-Meter does not lie.

You know, if you are so concerned with nutrition maybe you should find out how it actually works. Hint: emotional imprinting of food is not even remotely a thing.

In nature animals die in pure agony and sometimes are simply consumed alive.

Humans may have bad habits, but we do make the attempt to stun and kill the beast quickly before taking it apart.

"fear and aggression enzymes"? You have scientific evidence for this, of course?

Some say that fruits and vegetables do have rudimentary "feelings". Those people probably have as much evidence for their view-point as you have for your "fear enzymes".

If you are what you eat, and you only eat vegetables, then you're a vegetable.
(I think it's a stupid saying; I'm a human being, and I certainly don't want to eat humans.)

Besides, we evolved as omnivores, and we need nutrients that are abundant in meat products. Switching to a vegan/vegetarian diet means you have to make sure you find those nutrients in something else.

Mental is the perfect adjective. Bravo!

Well then you must eat a lot of shit.

I just ate a bacon, egg & cheese sandwich, and I feel just fine, emotionally or otherwise. :D

But I love the taste of fear in my hamburgers, hopelessness in my grilled salmon and despair in my roast chicken, it adds such wonderful flavor to the food.

Eating carrots, broccoli and sprouts must explain my lazy, or vegetative, state of being.

Mental. Yes, definitely mental. Isn't it cute when they make up sciency-stuff to justify their fetish?

Er. Dude, is this like a magic brownie induced "epiphany?" I've been a vegetarian for about a decade, but not because I had any worries over "fear and aggression enzymes" or "emotional cells," thanks.

You haven't been to a Japanese restaurant.

I'm pretty sure there are more poisonous plants than there are poisonous animals ... animal meat that is. Wouldn't this suggest that plants are out to get us?

Not only are they wrong about the, the... whatever the fear enzyme whackadoodle they are going on about they are wrong about the plants too. Plants have systems of hormones that allow them to sense and respond to their environment. Not comparable to a nervous system of course, but saying that plants don't respond to being picked/ harvested is a definite overreach.

Plants don't like to be eaten, either. That's why they have thorns, poisonous alkaloids and other defenses.

So you have no emotions? You're a sociopath?

@John

Or spicyness, but we all know well that works when humans come into play.

You're not very observant. The sound is extremely weak, but radishes scream when you pull them from the ground.

Tomato sauce, incidentally, tastes great on a Bacon Sarnie.

So why does Bacon - which tastes so good - make me feel happy when I eat it, uknowfuckall...?!

Adrenalin isn't an "emotional cell." Actually, nothing is. Anyway, it's nearly impossible to get an unbiased answer on "do stress hormones in meat have any negative impact on humans?" They do make meat tougher and change the flavor a bit, which is why that deer you chased half a mile before finishing it off tastes like crap.

"You are what you eat" is a saying.

Sayings =/= Science.

Your theory is based on a false premise.

The problem isn't killing, it's the way animals are treated before that. Just today there was another horrific story about pigs in Illinois. I'm not saying don't eat meat. I'm saying if you believe that, at the very least, animals feel pain, please try to buy from responsible sources.

At the risk of stirring things up. I've only ever met a couple of vegans and they were about the most depressed, irrational and generally screwed-up people I've ever had the misfortune to come across. About as based in reality as the Rapture crowd and every bit as miserable and paranoid.
