Re cattle, besides deforestation, cow burps, and desertification caused by grazing etc etc, what really startled me was how much soy was eaten by livestock! It’s about 75% of all soy grown. It’s insane! Why not just cut out the middleman and farm soy just for humans? We’d cut down on land use for agriculture by 50% overnight!

Yeah, vegetarians and vegans have been having that argument for years. Maybe Sir David will have people trolling him with "But... bacon... nom nom nom" now.
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

Pretty sure that what tastes so great about bacon is the salt. Politically, it’s difficult to sell giving up red meat, or gasoline even, due to vested interests and loud morons.

Unexpected asteroid impacts notwithstanding, it's starting to feel pretty inevitable.

And grease.

And the bacon.

Although to be fair I miss pork scratchings far more than I do bacon. And pepperoni pizzas.

Ah well.

Pepperoni pizza is also what I really miss since I became veggie. There's no substitute for all that grease. I still think it's the right decision though.

I still get a little jealous about people going veggie. Mrs IP and I were heading that way and were really happy about it. Then she got severe late onset oral allergy syndrome and I got badly sick for two weeks and have ever since had an undiagnosed condition that severely limits fibre and FODMAP intake. I’d go batshit without eggs and chicken—and I can’t tolerate coconut, which wipes out a lot of vegan substitute foods (like basically all cheese).

If someone could wave a magic wand tomorrow and eradicate our allergies/intolerances, I don’t know if we’d go veggie immediately, but I imagine we’d be back to eating meat perhaps only a few times per week (and in much smaller portions). Bah @ reality.
