Vegans are less intelligent than carnivores

Something we knew all along: vegans are not quite as intelligent as carnivores. The gist: "Without question, veganism can cause B12 and iron deficiencies, and without question they affect your intelligence". You're welcome.

Live and let live. In my case it's the vegans I let do what ever they want to.

But thanks for delivering the reason for the 2016 US-election:
<<veganism has ..... become one of the fastest-growing millennial trends; in the United States, it grew by 600% between 2014 and 2017>>

Re: Vegans are less intelligent than carnivores

Cannot for the life of me imagine that there is a single vegan on this site.

Me, have been pescatarian since decades (need a trophy or halo symbol as the Mediterranean diet is now the in-thing - EF admins this is missing ).

Any vegans out there?

I think there were a handful but they've mostly been banned for getting gobby.

You mean this site is really intelligent? I'd take the research with a grain of salt.

A little fish then. We do need perkier emojis. I don't like to use them but maybe we could get creative there.

I used to be. Eons ago, if that counts. The preachers turned me off the drill, health consequences and the fact I spent most of the time either cooking, soaking something or eating.

EF tradition shows that should people who actually practice the subject of a thread are banned after a long period of bashing/belittling/ridiculing. That goes for everybody; Vegans, vegetarians, homeopaths, smokers, vaccinate-refusers .... you name it, they'll be beaten.
Because the non-of the abovers know much better.

So nope, no vegans will probably show up here. Unless a stupid one or two who will be accepted for scientific prove sake. ROFLMA.

I'm vegan sometimes ..

Like when I'm out drinking I normally just have a portion of fries or some chips.

Could I be be completely vegan, yes, I know people who are, I like the food we eat together.. Would I be, no.. And for things like milk and butter and eggs, rather than a pork chop.

I get the ethics to an extent, lets not be cruel etc..
But eggs for example, it's just a chickens period.. If we keep chickens humanely, let's eat their eggs.

We should have a few, shouldn't we. A few token millenial ones.

Let's be kinder then, they will hang out here. That goes for anything non-standard. Or trendy. (I don't mean fries, hahahaha).

Re: Vegans are less intelligent than carnivores

A Vegan refrains from eating meat or any animal products. They seem to enforce a cult-like behaviour in order to try and make normal people i.e. (meateaters) feel bad.Vegans appear to avoid reason and logic by yelling in the faces of anyone who refutes their life style claims. After a time of being on this diet, it seems they develop or have worsened mental problems such as Alzheimers. This occurs because their brains are so nutrient deficient from no Omega-3s or Cholesterol intake.
Personally I cannot do without my bacon, eggs, bangers and black pudding.
