Ah, the resorting to ad hominem when one is clearly unable to defend one's own position. By the way, these "all sorts of diseases" you speak of are not fully applicable to advances in pasteurization of milk or the use of preservatives in the meat supply. Instead, it's the "raw milk" fad that is actually leading to increased incidence of food poisoning, and ultimately, it is the overall sedentary lifestyle of modern America that is the cause for obesity, high cholesterol, and a plethora of other ailments that tin-foil hat wearing imbeciles like yourself falsely attribute to some "exotic" chemical preservative or other "unnatural" ingredient. Simply put: modern society is fucking LAZIER and eating MORE than previous generations, hence the higher proportion of LARD ASSES. Now, you can take issue with certain factory farming practices or the explosion of fast food joints or the "food deserts" across the country all you like, but at the end of the day, individuals must be held accountable for their choices/behaviors at least to SOME extent. You truly believe that a vegan diet is the "cure all?" Think again. What that really does is severely limit the type and amount of food choices to consume and, most importantly, it cuts out a lot of necessary dietary nutrients that can only be obtained via other animal sources -- via their own meat and/or their byproducts -- as these species lower down the food chain are able to digest and break down vital proteins enzymes that cannot be done directly by homo sapiens. In other words, humans are DESIGNED by nature to eat meat. One can make the conscious decision to forgo consuming of any animal products but one cannot deny hard, valid scientific fact. Stupid Ignorant Cunt.
