The Pure Evil of Vegetarianism

In the long run, the global warmers will be doing ‘bait and switch.’ Carbon as the hate object will be substituted with vegetarianism as the way to save the planet. They started talking about the need to remove meat from our diet years ago. But recently the messaging has become more insistent, unhinged, and disturbing.
Which is a big problem, because vegetarians are horrible, nasty people. They kill their own children. That couple in Florida may not have consciously chosen to kill their child, but their conscious lifestyle choice certainly did. Vegetarianism as a lifestyle choice, which the warmers are promoting, will do that.
Vegetarianism is unnatural and thus unfamiliar to we who live our lives as normal people. But we must beware of the facts if we are to help protect others from succumbing to it. Fortunately, a nutritional expert, Dr Natasha Campbell-McBride, the author of Gut and Psychology Syndrome, provides insight into the suffering and wasted lives that vegetarianism causes. In her words:
I have a few families where parents were dedicated vegetarians and wanted their children to be vegetarians as well. These cases are the most difficult to treat because after eliminating all grains, sugar and starchy vegetables from the diet there is not much left to eat. What these parents need to know is some statistics:
- Vegetarian children are more prone to health problems than children who eat meat, particularly to psychomotor impairment and diseases of the blood.
- Vegetarians are more prone to muscle loss and bone damage. They, on average, have lower muscle strength.
- According to census data vegetarians die younger than people who eat meat.
From my clinical observations I have yet to meet a healthy vegetarian. In the process of evolution we humans evolved to be omnivores, eating everything we can find in the environment: plants, eggs and meats. Our physiology is designed to work on these foods. To be healthy and full of energy we require a substantial amount of protein every day. (People with a compromised immune system due to their diet and gut flora) are particularly in need of high quality proteins from meats, fish and eggs because their digestive systems are not in a fit state to handle hard-to-digest proteins from plants.
Dr Campbell-McBride provides a case history of a young woman who lost her childhood, much in the same manner as Greta Thurnburg, because of the mental illness of vegetarianism:
When Sara was 10 she decided to become a vegetarian because she felt sorry for animals. As typically happens in this sort of situation, Sara’s vegetarianism translated into living largely on pasta and cheese, bread and cakes, chocolate bars and vegetarian sandwiches. After 1-2 years of her vegetarianism she developed digestive problems and became very susceptible to any cold or virus going around. She had developed a typical picture of irritable bowel syndrome with bloating, constipation and abdominal pain. A chain of chest infections were treated with numerous courses of antibiotics.
At the age of 15 she was diagnosed with anorexia nervosa. After one year of hospital treatment her anorexia flipped into bulimia. Sara became depressed and had very low levels of energy. She found it difficult to study, work or participate in any social activity. She developed suicidal thoughts and a desire to hurt herself. After a few suicidal attempts she ended up being sectioned in a psychiatric hospital under the control of neuroleptic drugs.
That story is typical of the sad, truncated lives of young vegetarians. Yet many young people will continue to make this potentially fatal lifestyle choice because not enough has been done to warn them and inform them.
Dr Campbell-McBride explains what will happen to them if they go to the dark side:
If your child (teenaged or younger) suddenly decides to become a vegetarian, this has to be taken extremely seriously. Misguided vegetarianism is rapidly becoming a major cause of mental illness in our young people. What these young people do not know is that plant foods are generally hard to digest and they are low in useful nutrition. Foods from animal origin are easy for the human gut to digest and assimilate and animal foods provide concentrated amounts of all essential nutrients for human physiology.
As plant foods are harder to digest and they contain a list of anti-nutrients, which can damage the gut, digestive problems are the first symptoms which appear in these beginner vegetarians. They usually develop IBS symptoms, such as bloating, indigestion, constipation, diarrhoea and flatulence. If the person already has a weak digestion, moving to a plant-based diet is positively dangerous. As the digestive system becomes more and more damaged, it is less able to nourish the person, and so nutritional deficiencies develop quite soon.
Vitamins B12, B6, B1, B2, niacin, essential amino acids, zinc and proteins are the first nutritional deficiencies a beginner vegetarian usually develops. As malnutrition sets in, the immune system cannot function well, leading to endless infections and courses of antibiotics. Each course of antibiotics damages the gut and the immune system even further.
Animals that eat plants have very long digestive systems with several stomachs full of special plant-breaking bacteria. The human digestive system is like that of lions and tigers in being fairly short with only one stomach, with virtually no bacteria in it. In fact our human stomach is designed to produce acid and pepsin which breaks down proteins into smaller peptides. These can only break down meat, fish and eggs.
In the spectrum of mental illnesses, vegetarianism is not as bad as gender dysphoria (with its 50% suicide rate), but that’s not much comfort. Anybody engaging in self-harm will happily harm others. If you met a vegetarian, don’t try to save them. Just start backing away.
