On soy consumption

'there’s the question of whether it’s better to consume soy, which if not responsibly sourced is linked to Amazon deforestation, or, say, the free-range chicken fried up by Otto, Barra and your other fancier locales' - this is highly misleading, as the vast majority of soy produced in the world and especially in the Amazon is grown for animal feed. You consume far less soy by eating soy products than you do indirectly by eating meat from animals which have been fed on much larger amounts of soy (most meat, unless it's grass-fed). Studies show that even the most environmentally damaging plant foods have less impact than the least damaging animal foods: https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2020/dec/23/organic-meat-production-just-as-bad-for-climate-study-finds

"vitamins"? I think you're thinking of things like DHA which your brain needs to function. This can't be found in plants (plants have a similar thing, but you have to consume a lot of it because only 10% of it becomes useful) Your brain is made of fat, and you're better off with the fat in butter than in any kind of vegetable oil.

The problem is not meat eating, it's eating meat more than once or twice a week.
We have fucked the soil on this planet by monocrop farming. We need to switch (back) to regenerative farming. This requires animals roaming on the land, shitting everywhere.
Everything dies, and in the wild animals die to feed other animals. Some 7 billion animals and birds die every year through harvesting crops, so it's not as if any "vegan" food comes without a death toll.

If you eat a vegan diet but your food is coming from anywhere but your backyard or local farm, you are having almost as negative an impact on the world as your meat eating neighbour.

It's about time we stopped fighting about what people eat (everyone has different requirements after all - try telling an innuit to only eat vegetables!) and start fixing our farms and our soil. And unfortunately, to do that, it means a lot more people are going to have to start working the land.

I can't see any of you Brambles addicts ("I'd rather kill myself with cancer-causing sugar than hurt a ow") giving up your lives of convenience and pulling on your wellies though...

Impact of vegan diet

'If you eat a vegan diet but your food is coming from anywhere but your backyard or local farm, you are having almost as negative an impact on the world as your meat eating neighbour' - this is factually completely wrong. Transport is a very small percentage of food emissions, and the land/resource use and climate effect of animal products have a vastly greater impact: https://ourworldindata.org/food-choice-vs-eating-local#:~:text=Transport%20is%20a%20small%20contributor,beef%20herds%2C%20it's%200.5%25.
