. Mother Jones mag wants to know why - LINK: Tell us why you quit meat Was it a sudden revelation, a growing distaste, a search for eating cheaper? All 3? - something else entirely? For me it was a car-accident, followed by 2 different antibiotics in under a month - together, the 2 wiped out my friendly flora, & I was in real trouble. I dropped 14# in 10-days flat, & felt AWFUL. Everything i ate went in my mouth, & out the other end, mostly undigested. For 2 years, i put live microbes on everything i ate B4 consuming it, & to this day, I can't eat meat-fats; they cause Godawful diarrhea [even overindulging in veg oils can do it - if the chef drops my French fries into oil that's not up to temp, & they are greasy, I usually won't get out of the restaurant B4 the fries are out of me; in 20-mins, zip!, gone]. prior to the accident, I'd cut my meat consumption to sustainable & clean, no CAFO stuff, but since '84, I eat only fish, & that's not often; cold-water wild caught, sustainable fisheries. How about U?... When did U go meatless? - terry .
