I'm no vegetarian but I couldn't care less about people that are. No skin off my back if they don't want to eat meat. Why would it bother you so much?
Anger, jealousy and envy are self-destructive emotions. They only hurt you and they eat away at your well-being. Learn to live and let live and your life will be much happier and less stressful.
I equate the “movement” to the homosexual lobby. They push and push for some sort of societal “acceptance.” Vegetarians and vegans have been some of the most vocal, in-your-face sort of people I’ve ever met. And much like homosexuals, they push for us to give up meat as if it’s some sociological taboo.
The vegetarian/vegan movements also brought us the “soy coalitions” who pushed food packagers to use soy instead of other vegetable-based oils in our foods like salad dressing. Having a thyroid condition, I am particularly sensitive to soy products, and the phytoestrogens in soy have been shown to cause sexual dysfunction in men including the onset of gynecomastia (breast tissue growth in men).
Take a look at the ingredient lists on your favorite foods and even cosmetics and body care products. Soy is in EVERYTHING, and I doubt we have a clear grasp on the impact soy will have on the body long term quite yet.
