More than ever, I hear that there's no nutrient, not even vitamin B12, that can't be gotten from vegetable sources. I understand that people's dependence on meat—and dairy—is largely cultural, and "needing" meat is a result of choosing to get their nutrients from animal—not vegetable—sources. So what's the deal with the disconnect people have regarding "I love animals; they taste great!"
[Also, may I ask who is maintaining the tags in this community? It would help if we were able to sort where the posts came from, and it seems a lot of the tags came off a list with no community input. Is this true?]
