    I think a better option is to eat twice the amount of red meat so we can save the planet. We need to get busy and reduce the number of cattle! I will have two steaks...medium rare, please...and hurry before another ice cap melts! And bring me a cheeseburger on the side!!

    Humans eat too much meat nowadays- but if we hadn't eaten meat in the past our brains wouldn't have developed to the point they have today.

    But geez- those cows fart alot :eek:

    Yeah, WOW, I didn't realize cows farted so much.

    So, if I eat less meat, the cows won't fart as much?

    P.S. I eat very little meat anyway so don't blame any of it on me. I've done some bad things in my life but overindulging on meat ain't one of them.......

    Well, my niece will be glad to hear that. I can just hear her little Vegan speech in my head. I'm sure she can hear me saying 'thank you for the burgers and steak' to the truckers and waving as I pass the slaughterhouse on my way to eat. LOL.

    lol- cute :)

    I know a couple of kids that are vegetarians...not sure that's such a good thing, I think kids need a bit of red meat or be getting the proper supplements..

    She actually was shown a book in grade school years ago, we never did figure out by who, and started refusing to eat meat. Her hair actually started falling out. Then we convinced her that chicken soup was was they fed to the chickens and she would eat it (she was a kid, what can I say). Now she eats things like jello (which by the way is not Vegan) and those little chocolate covered donuts which have beef fat as an ingredient but says she is Vegan. I guess that's why I tease her.

    PETA, people eating tasty animals......

    Sheesh, breathing these days with all the chemicals in the air is pretty dangerous.

    Company emissions ( air or water) vs. a good steak, pic your brand...... good question, and great topic for your daughter to research. I bet she gets an A+

    These two kids refuse to eat meat too!

    They won't even eat anything that has been cooked in the same pan as meat!- lol- their Dad is Hare Krishna, they're not into eating meat- the cow is sacred to them.

    You must have been alarmed when your daughters hair started falling out?! geez- didn't know that could happen, the kids I know have heaps of hair- lol

    Maybe we just need to include beano in the cow diets. : )

    Actually, my sister is a vegetarian and she has to take supplements for her diet to insure she gets enough of certain vitamins and minerals she has given up with not eating red meat and chicken. She does eat fish. She started on a macrobiotic diet then when she tried to go back to a full diet...her body wouldn't allow it. She has never been able to process red meat since. Makes her horribly ill.

    I can see how it could make a child's hair fall out if they aren't getting the required vitamins and minerals.

    Don't worry, Nore! I will save Ohio by myself! hehehe

    If God didn't want us to eat cows, then he should'nt have made them out of meat. LOL

    I just finished a very large, juicy cheeseburger and found I opened up the Northwest Passage early! Woohoo! Think of what the explorers can find there now! (It will probably be an ancient scroll which says, "Eat Less Beef-Save The Northwest Passage"!)

    Well, I haven't eaten red meat since 1984 so don't blame me lol--I've done more than my part to reduce the cows massive gaseous emissions--every little bit helps I guess:)
