    I am from a brahmin (100% veg) family in INdia and Believe me as I observed In my family No one seems to be getting Diebetis, Heart problems and No One ever Died Premature deaths due to dieseses…my Granny lived 96+, Granpa 88+, Petranal Granpa 80+…also all my relatives who are 50+ they look like Non Veg people who are 40+…They fell So less sick…also they live with very less exercising etc..Still remain heathly.

    Is eating meat bad karma? /watch?v=ytEz2GQOVNk

  12. srqtrashcan says:

    @musicproducer16 From my experience, fruits/veggies from your average bigbox grocery store (Publix included) aren’t as fresh as those from farmers markets. The apples tend to be grittier, the squash drier on the inside, & selection tends to be limited. I find I’m more pleased to spend my money at a smaller business than a big one, especially since the market is often cheaper/fresher. The good news is that produce markets are on the rise, & with Troyer being in Millersburg you might find one.

  13. musicproducer16 says:

    @srqtrashcan Oh okay. I was wondering because like I said before. I am just starting out on my “healthy eating” journey (that’s what I like to call it lol) And i’m not sure where to start far as buying any of my foods.I know it probably depends on where you live. I live in Ohio & I only been here for about 5 years,so I’m not sure. I usually just buy at a regular grocery store. I’m not sure if I should start buying organic or not. I guess you can say I am still a amateur at this stuff.

    @musicproducer16 I used to work at Taco Bell, two weeks working there I realized I never wanted to eat fast food again. I live within 2 miles of a bustling farmers market, on my weekly visits I get basics like kale/collard greens, turnips, blueberries, cabbage-carrots-vinegar (coleslaw), broccoli, squash, apples, banana, 100% peanut-peanut butter, etc. I get beans from Adobe milling company off the net (real nice), & I get steel-cut oats, spices, ‘n the like from Publix just ’cause it’s close

    @SuperLarry4 Needed a laugh :)

  17. SuperLarry4 says:

    @lovebigboobs29 So you watch a video titled “How to be a vegetarian” … xD

  18. musicproducer16 says:

    @srqtrashcan YES. The only reason allot of people eat from these stupid fast food establishments is because they want to get food on the go…fast. My mom use to always tell me, the short way isn’t always the best way.Well I like to think that the same applies for the things we choose to put in our bodies. The sad thing is people know that its bad but they still eat it then they choose to complain when they are sick. smh. I have a question…Where do you buy most of your foods?

  19. srqtrashcan says:

    @musicproducer16 You are on to something, producer. For vegetarians, (not consuming eggs or milk) calcium is something they have to make sure they’re getting enough of. Protein is found in MANY vegetables (nuts, legumes, beans..) and corporate America rarely knows what’s good for it’s subjects. How to feel good? Do NOT order ANYTHING from fast-food establishments. Oatmeal/grits in the morning with some fruit and walnuts (omega-3) and a full course home-cooked meal every night. I feel GREAT!

  20. lovebigboobs29 says:

    @NewYorkFlavour Agreed meat doesn’t make you fat. Its the carbs but vegetarians or vegans dont get that.

  21. lovebigboobs29 says:

    Eating meat is delicious. Thats what its here for!! I eat veggies and fruit as sides the way they are intended.

    Hey guys. I am trying to go vegetarian (for health reasons) but my parents will not let me. I am slowly cutting out red meat. The reason they are not allowing me is because they think we need meat to survive and that I am a growing girl and the protein. I reseached and found that we get too much protein. So I am wondering however, does anyone have any tips on avoiding meat at meal times, and making it seem like I ate it? (:

    @ohfriggina Those buns are what’s going to kill him.

  27. mrabdrum says:

    @krll98 Yes we do have a moral responsibility to animals for the exact same reasons we have those responsibilities to other humans. There are a million ways to group beings other than by species, but you chose to group by genetics… why? Its ridiculous and hypocritical to say that its perfectly ok to kill certain animals but not others. Animals feel pain… and therefore we have moral obligations to treat them respectfully, and if you say no, I would like you to explain WHY.

  28. mrabdrum says:

    @ragekage209 “vegetarians are stupid”… nah… I’m not stupid.If you do think that I’m stupid, it would be great if you could present some evidence.

  29. thefallennikaya says:

    @ohfriggina You’re wishing death upon a human being because you love cows? Wow.

  30. krll98 says:

    @AntiSpeciesistWorld we evolved to be the elite species on the planet and by “the will to power” humanity does what it wants, we have no “moral” responsibility cause we answer to no one but ourselves, i find great joy in hunting and eating meat, we bond with some animals like dogs and cats others we kill get used to it we make our own rules

  31. ragekage209 says:

    Dude… vegetarians are stupid, but… the conditions of those factories where they keep the animals is abysmal and a real problem. No living creature should have to go through that, just be killed and eaten.
    Also, the shit will kill you. It’s nasty.
    First time i’ve ever disagreed with you TJ, never thought i’d see the day.

  32. AntiSpeciesistWorld says:

    If your an atheist like me then I assume you believe in evolution, so you must conclude it is not our god given right to take advantage of other species, they feel pain like us and as a socially evolved species we have a moral responsibility to really think out our actions unlike other species who just kill other animals because its the thing they instinctively do.

    This ain’t the stone age, we got to question our traditions and workout what is right and wrong.

  33. Elliottfukman says:

    well i’m a vegetarian for the fact it takes 6 times the amount of food to put into a cow as you would get out, so in theory if enough people became vegetarian than we could solve world hunger, but i see where you are coming from and i agree with everything else in your other videos, thanks.

  34. ohfriggina says:

    @21ollej Lol. I’m 15 you douche. So no, thanks, I’ll pass.

  35. 21ollej says:

    @ohfriggina You probably want some nice black penis along with that salad of yours. At least, that’s what most vegetarians want.

  36. sk84jews says:

    i love eating meat, in fact i’ll walk right out back and bite a fucking cow right now

  37. jaieet says:

    @werewolf873 “pills and protein cocktales are inneficient when there is a supermarket right down the street”
    Where you can buy pills (cheap ones) and protein shakes (not so cheap; and more for working out).
    And cereal. And nuts. And beans. And cheese. And eggs…
    Is it also ‘inefficient’ to walk to the veggie section? 😛
    But yeah – moderation, complete and utter meat diets; It’s all the choice of the person who eats it. I just laugh at the justifications, though it’s a bit hypocritical. ;p

  38. iLurveChoc says:

    @TearsOfWar Humans can’t understand animals expressions or lang right? The fact that they have the ability to move comes with a want to be able to use that ability, and after all, even when humans are restricted, our basic survival instinct, which is present in all animals, kicks in, not our IQ. And yes they do want to eat, but eating just because they have nothing better to do is something which even they must get tired of, and having dreams is not a requirement for deserving physical freedom.

  39. werewolf873 says:

    @jaieet pills and protein cocktales are inneficient when there is a supermarket right down the street. i think perhaps moderation is a better policy then zealotry.

    continuing….Why have we identified needless suffering as bad? We did it because we can feel it. We dont want to feel pain as its the worst experience a creature can endure. However for some odd reason, we have not expanded this brilliance to include other sentient creatures. Why? Because simply we are nothing more than stinky primates.. Weaselly scheming machines run on an ego that destroy everything in their path. However some of us are evolving..

    @TearsOfWar1 forgive my nonsensical sentence structure

  44. CantWeedThis says:

    @TearsOfWar1 Its well documented that even dairy cows who have their calves taken away so humans can drink it instead. The mom cows cry and sob for days on end. Because they do have a high enough level of consciousness to suffer at the fact that they’re baby is kidnapped. You do know that humans are not the only animal that suffers. We dont speak their language and they dont speak ours. But simple observation shows that mammals suffer all the same.Please wake up to that reality

  45. jaieet says:

    @TearsOfWar1 1 was just the first response. I numbered the rest in response to that statement. Sorry if it confused you a little – I tend to underthink my formatting
    “What definition of ‘morality’ makes it not so subjective?”
    The rules of conduct definition is the most difficult to interpret otherwise. Unless you want to argue that laws are subjective as well (I suppose technically anything can be)
    A basis of morality sets a starting point to work from. From there subjectivity becomes restricted

  46. jaieet says:

    @TearsOfWar1 “Cows have friends? Can you explain this? Please don’t anthropomorphize.”
    Cows form herds, avoid certain members of those herds (while gravitating towards others), care for their offspring, feud/fight (mostly bulls), and, like all animals, communicate.
    Dogs make friends; as do elephants, dolphins, birds, etc, etc. Why on Earth would a cow be any different? Even sheep have personalities. =P

  47. TearsOfWar1 says:

    @jaieet What happened to (1)? I don’t see it and has not shown up in my inbox… What definition of ‘morality’ makes it “not so subjective?”

  48. mondezdurden says:

    @TearsOfWar1 I’m always amazed at the need of others like yourself to pass your ideals on someone like me. I don’t have to be scientific when giving opinions, dude. It’s essentially a message board and my viewing his vids helps him so what the FUCK is your problem? You think he needs you coming around like captain-save-a-hoe protecting his name from dissenters? He has hundred of thousands of views, so you think he cares? I saw your pic. You’re too cute to go around attacking people. Get a life.

    @jaieet (3 – I’m sorry. =P)
    Morality is also heavily influenced by geographical convenience. Laziness and/or convenience will encourage people to ignore small (or personally inconsequential) moral issues in order to minimise their own workload. For example; littering, polluting, or, to an extremity, eating your child due to a lack of food (though that’s extreme, and an example of ‘greater good’)
