Cain was a vegetarian who killed his meat eating brother. Go figure.

And even after cast out from the Garden, Eve was guilty of raising Cain.[wink]

For those who are keeping score, the very first reference in the Bible to what food was ordained for humans to eat didn't include any meat. We can take it for whatever it is worth, but some may not know that.

What I do know personally is that I had all sorts of digestive issues before I gave up meat in my mid-20s, and they ALL went away after that point. While I began eating seafood occasionally over the last eight years or so, I attribute a lot of my good health to the fact I've avoided beef, pork and poultry for 45 years now. It's not just the meat that is a problem; it's the antibiotics, hormones and assorted adulterants that are commonly used in modern food production that can cause ill health over a lifetime of consumption.

I warmly encourage anyone thinking about making a change to give it a try by gradually eating less meat. You may decide for yourself if you notice a positive change in how you feel.
