Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think you should add that meat is necessary but not at the present quantities. 500 grams of meat per week is more than enough to get all the basic nutrients (basically one vitamin and a couple of oligoelements difficult to find in vegs).

Impressive diary... by the way.. One day someone will have to make the numbers and show that 500 gr of meat per person per week can be safely produced in a non-industrial way with no harm to the environment...

Of course, if you eat 500 gr you have to eat all kind of plants and beans...if you  eat 1 kg per week you are also on safe ground and you can spare some vegs.. If you eat less than 500 gr then you have to take care and eat some secial plants and vegs to compensate...

Going higher than 1 kg.. well.. all the reports I have read (most of them produced in England and Scotalnd) show that it is not necessary and even, some defend, really harmful.

Great diary and thread...

A pleasure

I therefore claim to show, not how men think in myths, but how myths operate in men's minds without their being aware of the fact. Levi-Strauss, Claude
