      don't boss me, Christin.

      This is a diary in which we are expected to genuflect before the computer-butcher Bill Gates' blitherings about food. I found that amusing and absurd, and said so.

      And herein I have engaged in no "spamming." I have simply pointed out, with a link, that it is a scientific fact that the human organism is built to run on meat and fruit. Nobody has bothered to refute this, they've just denied it—just like people who deny evolution, and persist in the fantasy that Adam and Eve rode dinosaurs to church. The comparison, therefore, is not, as you would have it, "stupid," but in fact quite apt.

      Finally, you haven't the faintest idea what you're talking about when you start gibbering about "someone who simple [sic] eats different food that [sic] you [sic] what you gulp down." You haven't the first clue as to what I eat.

          you are referring to the final link in your diary.

          Nowhere does it say that "the human body is healthier on a vegetarian diet."

          The closest it comes is here:

          Meat in the diet provides an important source of protein and micronutrients, such as iron, zinc, and B-vitamins. However, energy-dense diets, purported to be high in meat, fats and sugars, and further compounded by sedentary lifestyle, have been implicated in the growing epidemics of obesity and diet-related chronic diseases. Evidence suggests vegetarians may be at lower risk for CVD, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, obesity, and cancer. However, low-fat/high-carbohydrate diets have not been wholly positive or successful in reducing the burden of chronic disease within the general population; and lean meat and fish continue to be part of recommendations for a balanced, healthy diet.

            article and that was that meat contributes to chronic disease.

              miss the point of the article at all. It is you who want it to make a point that it manifestly does not. You claimed it said that "the human body is healthier on a vegetarian diet." Except it doesn't say that. But you want it to, so that's what you say it says. Even though it doesn't.

                  your own link:

                  The participants of the the German Cancer Research Center study included 60 vegans (no animal products consumed), 1165 vegetarians (eating eggs, milk but no meat) with the remainder described as "moderate" vegetarians who occasionally ate fish or meat. The health of these study participants was compared with the average German population. Living longer seems not to be exclusively related to eating meat, though, as the results for moderate vegetarians was not statistically different from those for vegan or strict vegetarian diets.
                  Quoting from your own links is hardly "trollish."

                    and that's what you're doing.  Unfortunately your bad habits harm and cost the rest of us greatly.

                      haven't the faintest idea what my habits are. And yet you condemn them as "bad," and decree that they "harm and cost the rest of us greatly."

                      In this, you display the absolute worst habit of human beings, the one from which all human-on-human suffering and oppression flows.
