So after going vegan (or even before) you hear the whole "meat is bad!" "no, meat is good!" crap. So can anyone provide me with some good info on the subject, and by that I don't mean an angry vegetarian or hardcore "I love me some steak" hillbilly on YouTube shouting at a camera about how great steak/tofu is. I ask because the big reason I dislike the idea of eating meat is because of the meat industry, not because I'll break down in tears at the thought of shooting a rabbit for dinner. Can anyone give me any good evidence or reason to believe that meat or fish is bad for us as humans? I hear that depending on the type, a lot of fish can have high levels of mercury (peta argument), but then I read that adults have no problem with it in reasonable amounts, with the exception of pregnant women, so clearly it's not that bad. I'm also aware that this thread might already exist, in which case I do apologise.
