Vegan reply to: 'I get sick if I don't eat meat'

Reply to people claiming that they get sick if they don't eat meat.

You get sick if you eat the wrong food. All animal foods are unhealthy. See research provided in previous post. You can be healthy eating a starch-based diet with vegetables and fruits. There is plenty of research showing this. Homo sapiens have a common biology and it is well-known that we don’t need any meat.

We have NONE genetic adaptations for meat consumption:
Humans have no known anatomical, physiological, or genetic adaptations to meat consumption.
We have many adaptations to plant consumption.
Vitamin C is found in plants. We can’t make it ourselves such as carnivores.

Or digestive tract is longer than carnivores, so that our food can stay in the body longer so we can digest plant matter. We need more surface area and we need more microbes.

“It is the position of the American Dietetic Association that appropriately planned vegetarian diets, including total vegetarian or vegan diets, are healthful, nutritionally adequate, and may provide health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases. Well-planned vegetarian diets are appropriate for individuals during all stages of the life cycle, including pregnancy, lactation, infancy, childhood, and adolescence, and for athletes.” — Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (formerly the American Dietetic Association)"

It is false that we need animal protein. It is even contradicted by the extremly conservative Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (formerly the American Dietetic Association). It is also contradicted by millions of healthy vegans. It is also contradicted by the research referred to in this documentary: http://www.adelicatebalance.com.au/

Ethical argument:

Here’s the problem: at least 99.99% of animal use, which results in the suffering and death of animals, is unnecessary! At least 99.99% of animal use is for food, but humans can easily get their nutrition from plants.
