Some people cringed when Billy Meier published a contact conversation with Quetzal, one of his Plejaren contact people, in which he was told that vegetarianism is actually worse than smoking.
Of course he also pointed out the other nutritional deficiencies and negative health impacts, such as are mentioned in this latest study.
Of course there’s additional information on how much of the real blame for lung cancers attributed to smoking actually is due to radiation and radioactivity from various sources,which of course our government (and probably others) keeps well concealed. Smoking obviously isn’t harmless and Meier himself quite smoking many years ago.
And a relatively small part of the population may do well with vegetarianism. As for being a vegan (the more extreme vegetarian kind, not the extraterrestrials from Vega) from what I understand, there isn’t a single vegan race, i.e. a race, or culture, with any verifiable history of veganism. Veganism is yet another daffy kind of “mental dietetics” created by, well, really out of balance…vegetarians, you know, the kind that smile all the time, look kind of translucent and don’t stand up well in a stiff wind. Again, exceptions apply but they are…exceptions.
