  1. Ask god to save you from veganism veganism makes these people miserable their life revolves around it that’s why they push it so hard veganism is new world order garbage

  2. Recent displays of enmity towards vegans represent a puzzling escalation in hostilities, just as a consensus is starting to form that eating less meat would almost certainly be better for everyone – and the Earth.

    The rise of veganism is a question less of personal taste than of generational upheaval; less about meat and fish and dairy than the systems that put them on our tables in such excessive quantities. Ultimately, the vegan wars are not really about veganism at all, but about how individual freedom is coming into conflict with a personal and environmental health crisis.

    Finally, there is nothing wrong with supplementing, and taking them does not negate the ethical argument for veganism.

  3. Not going to watch this video… Lion or sheep?? It is that simple. But… mansplaning to a Toxic feminized welfare Justice educated indoctrinated simp is difficult task. Genetically modified fruits and vegetables that are continually sprayed with chemicals, insecticides, fertilizers and animal matter. Can't be that great. Global distribution, global climate sensitive cultivation is expensive.. Any survival or extreme rural setting you must eat meat. This alone should state that we are omnivores and a balance is necessary for great physical, mental, spiritual, health. At a micro level all animals eat meat. Grazers eat loads of bugs.

  4. I feel that taste and the enjoyment I get from eating certain animals is more important than their lives… I do not practice cognitive dissonance regarding eating those certain species as I actually enjoy eating certain species in principal not just the taste…

    My own subjective morals are not in conflict regarding this subject but Its something I have contemplated on many occasions as I like to examine myself as well as the world around me regularly.

    I am happy with my actions so far… I'll likely think on it more in the future and who knows what I'll decide upon or feel as I'm not someone who can be classed as one thing or the other… Isms and ists etc don't really apply to me as I change my mind regularly.

    Not all of us agree on what's moral and what's not because morals are of course subjective to the individual which is why we have laws in society to punish people who do things most of us seem to consider wrong… Not all those laws are ones I agree with and some are….

    Currently most people do not think it is immoral to eat various other species so it is not illegal.

    Majority does not make it a universal truth either as there's no such thing… Because once again morals are subjective…

    Its good to open the discourse and hear other people's perspectives but I wanted to state my own position as its not in agreement and that seems to be the point of such discussions …

    Follow your heart and if it doesn't interfere with my freedoms I can't imagine having a problem with It.

    I have stumbled across the more hate filled, narcissistic and close minded individuals amongst the veganist ideology from time to time who belive in such things as objective morality, although they never even agree with each other on what those morals are 😂

    I try to remain open minded and accepting of different types of people but tend to steer clear of narcissists whenever possible in life 😬

    Although ideologies do tend to attract this type of person as they offer a platform to profess their belived superiority over others Its also true to say that many veganists I have met do not attempt to push their morals and lifestyle on to others and remain open minded, simply claiming it as a personal choice. 👍

    Often those folks don't even claim the title of "vegan" however but instead simply claim they do not eat or generally use animal products for personal reasons.

    Humans are a complex bunch of beings to put it mildly but more often than not that simply makes the human experience fun and interesting 😊

    I spoke to one particular vegan recently who said that if he had to choose he would kill a mentally handicapped person instead of 100 deer because he perceived the deer to have a greater quality of life… That's the kind of misanthropic thinking that most people on earth will never allow to become the norm.

    I hope to do more good than harm during my life and if that's something your aiming for too then I wish all you earthlings good luck and hope you also have some fun while on this crazy ride too 🌍

  5. It's so unfair to push veganism onto people. I tried it and was very ill. I had a food intolerance test done and looked into the blood group diet and I infact personally needed red meat as it was medicinal for me. I don't eat it every day. Perhaps once a week but the body is personal and it's not a one size fits all. Please don't keep pushing this agenda. You could be making people ill in the long term. I suggest people test their food sensitivities and their blood group diet and manage on a varied food consumption of not meat everyday but if you need it you must eat it. I got B12 deficient and their is no vegan option for  that. Please be careful  what you are preaching and damaging peoples health.

  6. I watched a couple of Ed and joey vids, went vegan overnight its easy when you really want to do it…cant believe i was 36 and didnt know half of the stuff that goes on…crazy!

  7. Ed looks skinny, malnourished, and pale. A Vegan diet lacks convertible B12, Vitamin A, Vitamin D, Heme Iron, Taurine, And Creatine. Humans need fat soluble vitamins in order to covert the vitamins and minerals we ingest. Meat is the most nutrient dense food available to us. Funny thing is, plants aren’t even vegan. Plants get nutrients from the soil which is composed of dead animals and humans….

  8. People lack education and are conditioned to view certain animals as food, you challenge non-vegans with beliefs like this and they get defensive, becasue a part of their identity is being challenged, I definitley agree that education can solve many problems of the world like this one

  9. Went vegan a month ago Couldn’t be happier surprisingly easy to do for an ex Atkins dieter Love that the animals and earth are no longer being effected by my choices My soul alone is lighter

  10. About the 'forcing kids to be vegan' thing, I've not wanted to eat meat for most of my life, but my parents forced me to. I often snuck the meat to my sister's plate when my mom wasn't looking, but most of the time I had no choice but to eat it.
    Thank gosh my parents don't get to decide what I eat anymore 🙂

  11. After doing my own research on the effects of a plant based diet and the way it boosts performance I thought may as well give it a go, don’t get me wrong I LOVE wings, steaks, burgers and will have one now and then for a treat. But I’ve been vegan only a week and I felt like a terminator when I went for a run earlier didn’t fatigue at all it’s madness

  12. Hey Ed, once again great video, thank you so much for all your work, I am here to support you in every way I can! ❤️🐾

  13. Ed is like a modern day Jesus for the animals! Travels the word chatting to people, he is the epitome of compassion, humbleness and understanding.

    theres a difference between being a vegan and a vegan activist. sadly they usually come in a bundle. you know it is possible to be vegan and accept others' dietary choices

  15. Massive respect to bbc and match of the day for putting this out there and just having a conversation about veganism
