I have to tell you a very freaky story. I'm 26 and in shape but because a metabolic issue I must take a pill to control my blood cholesterol levels. I'm lacto vegetarian, so my common sense told me to quit dairy in order to control my cholesterol an quit the pill. So I went to see my cardiologist...
When I told him that I had been vegetarian for two years he said immediately "nonono, meat is necessary" and started talking about hippies and revolutions and his argument was that "we are made to eat meat" (he told me as he pointed to his very flat teeth) and told me that we are not like cows that have teeth to eat grass and so on. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT? Not even my mom, who was with me and is not vegetarian, bought that!!! I didn't say anything cause it's no sense to argue with someone that is not open to new information, but I've heard exactly the same argument in favor to veganism!!! Anyway, I'm looking for a more modern, open-minded doctor =S
