    tasty food? If done right both foods can be tasty
    More variety? True
    Dont need to spend money on vegan stuff? Either you're eating bad quality meat or eating the really expensive vegan stuff
    Healthier? No way

    I eat extremely high quality meat but generally vegan stuff does cost a lot more.

    And yes it is healthier. all you need to do is be sensible with what and how much you eat, but with veganism you cant get many vital nutrients without supplements and other various ways.

    You would realise eating red meat is bad for u
    Actually the whole red meat is bad thing is mostly bullcarp.

    Eating lean meats is fine and provide lots of iron something many people lack, it is good for protein and the whole cancer thing is minute and can be lessened.

    Thats somewhat true I guess. I dont really get the point of avoiding egg and milk. Eggs these days dont even get fertilised so life isnt even formed. As for redmeat ... you can get all the nutrients you get from redmeat from eating fish and plus many more so its not really a justification to eat redmeat.

    source?

    hitting protein RDAs is fantastically easy no matter what your diet is. i can appreciate if you are an athlete or bodybuilder you need a heck of a lot of protein and it can be hard to get an appropriate variety of vegan protein with a sensible calorie to protein ratio, but otherwise i just can't see the problem.

    grains, vegetables etc. are the cheapest things in the supermarkets. the only things to worry about are micronutrients, which really is not much of an issue for veggies. harder for a vegan, but still a long way from the expense of meat.

    For many people - perhaps even most - it's not the killing that's the only issue. There's also animal welfare and environmental considerations to make.

    Im a vegeterian but eat fish. Fish is a really good source of protein and oils, although it can be found in seeds you would need to eat a lot of them which can be difficult
    If you eat fish you aren't a vegetarian, you are a pescetarian, period. Fish isn't a vegetable

    source? i've been a bit sceptical since the definition of 'red' and 'processed' meats seems kind of vague and subjective, but the evidence does seem to be there that some relationship exists.

    Red meat whether lean or not still takes more to digest which is not good for the digestive system and stomach therefore the body.

    This is a good one, But beware every week red meat may cause cancer then the next it cures cancer.

    So they should tackle the bad treatment of animals instead of not eat eggs.

    They aren't just labels, fish aren't vegetables or plant matter. They don't grow on trees, this is indisputable fact

    Quitting eating eggs has a real, demonstrable and measurable influence on the number of animals kept in bad conditions. So it IS tackling the bad treatment of animals. IIRC, there is also some debate as to whether 'free range' chickens, for example, are actually treated at all well.
