Hey Brian, a couple of people have mentioned you gotta do what's right for you, you are a perfect example of that, I wish you continued success.
Just when you think you've got it down to a science, you're thrown a curve ball, or some new information comes along to debunk what you thought might have been an absolute truth. This holds true in a lot of things, including diet and beekeeping.
At this point in my life I am open to suggestions but I do have certain things that work for me, that are tried and true, but then again...
I visited a vegetarian and vegan website the other day for some vegetable recipes that I could add to my repertoire and came away with a very bitter taste in my mouth. Most on there were vegan. Most were very angry towards anyone who would even consider eating any animal product, they even referred to us as stupid omnis, of course short for omnivores. I just couldn't believe what I was seeing, it was very scary.
I have seen vegans who were so thin they looked like they were about to die any minute, and I'm not putting them down, don't think I am. I knew a girl whose sis was vegan and she was afraid for her, she would slip liquid amino acids into her food or drink, whenever possible. Vegetarianism makes a lot more sense, and Dane's information above is informative as to the why's on vegetarianism as well. Now I have also seen people put down vegans and vegetarians as well, so there are those in both schools that do trash talking, that's just how it goes in this world you know.
