I'm one of those who think meat's fine, but I don't want to make it sound like vegans are "stupid" just because they don't think like me. I think what's most important is to follow your inner voice and knowing what kind of food makes you feel good, since that will be different for each one of us. I base alot of my opinios about nutrition on native diets, and although most traditional people ate animal products in some form, there were those who, based on ethics would avoid meat if they could, like Australian Aborigines (although they considered fish OK). So, avoiding meat for moral reasons, is reason enough, even though the human body is capable of digesting meat.
I hope that rather than trying to insult or being defensive about our nutritional choices, we can provide personal experiences and references, since all of us here are concerned about healthy eating.
I think it's always important to stay open-minded and flexible when it comes to our diet, because much of what we have come to rely on is based on science, and science is ever changing.
