Because hominids are omnivores. If it ain’t baroque I don’t see a need to fix it. Vlad the Impaler had a 0-percent crime rate and ate human blood. Greeks eat meat and there’s an island where a majority of the elderly have lived greater than 100 years.
Ulysses S. Grant got hammered before battle. Hitler was a teetotaler.
Does that mean we should get soldier’s shitfaced drunk before combat? Hell no!
People eat meat because they want to. Just because famous scientists swore off meat, doesn’t mean everyone should.

Ah. Yeah, those ones are pretty cringeworthy. I’m actually not really good with red meat, but with my job requirements, a completely meat-free diet would beat the shit out of me six ways to Sunday. I don’t know how my vegetarian friends can do it.
That and the vegetarian and veggie dishes at the cafeteria are cringe-worthy. I want to cry every time I see the poor cabbages and Brussels sprouts all limp and wilty from over-boiling. Those are my favorite!
