RE: Do the reasons for reducing meat consumption matter?
Stumbling across this older post of yours @spectrumecons, brought a satisfied smile to my face. It was not only well written and presented in a relatively, unbiased manner, the subject matter is one (related to health) of which I've had a long term interest in. Therefore an interesting and enjoyable read.
Personally, I've fluctuated between being a lacto-ovo vegetarian and flexitarian (yet very little meat as a flex) for over forty years. The reasoning behind such dietary manueverings have varied from time-to-time... but, usually with health and fitness in mind.
At over 70 years of age now, this dietary habit, along with regular exercise and a few other lifestyle changes (non-fanatically) has had very satisfactory affects/effects. I've no chronic illnesses, still agile, fit, strong and seemingly the healthiest of all my siblings, friends and acquantances of similar age (half of which are already dead, prior to their 60th birthdays)
I just wanted to share these beneficial outcomes with you and your readers for inspirational purposes😎
