MacabreMikolaj, Admittedly you're right about how we feed cows. But you can get grain-fed ones. Another aspect is that dogs and cats would be hard to slaughter humanely because of their body shape (as pigs are). Cows and sheep are good because their necks are not too long or too short. Birds are even easier.

Salmon has the least heavy metals of all fish... but yeah it's still a concern.

Unless I am mistaken, it is mostly the mercury content in fish that people are cautioned about. Mercury is apparently a very dangerous metal (though I used to play with it as a kid when a thermometer would break O,O). As for eggs, shoot, my Grandad ate eggs and bacon every morning every day of his life and lived to be 86 before a stroke caused by a freak blood clot took his life.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Yep, Mercury is very dangerous. That is where the term "mad as a hatter" came from. Back in the day (way back...) when mercury was used in hat making, hatters were often going insane from prolonged exposure.

But as long as you didn't drink the stuff, you are probably fine. :)
I don't remember, but I heard somewhere that eating a lot of rabbit can cause problems. Anyone know anything about that??

Really what kind of problems? Though I hate rabbit anyway... Even tofu has more taste!

Actually, that's the concern in carnivores as well. It's the point that ponyboy was trying to make - we don't typically eat carnivores because they can be dangerous to us in large quantities due to the hierarchy of the food chain. Because tuna/shark rank amongst the only "carnivores" we eat (top of the ocean food chain), we only hear the warnings about them. But it's the exact same for species like bear because they're consuming all the animals consuming the mercury (herbivores have small amounts due to not eating a food source that eats mercury). ROFL, that seems so confusing!

I read on a website that coal plants alone emit 50 tonnes of mercury into the air alone every year - where it breaks up into numerous forms, causing such an enormous issues in fish and such. How disgusting is that? We are such a foul species - we'll poison ourselves long before the world ever implodes.

...and suddenly horse meat sounds like a good option

I had no idea about mercury / metal issues. And rabbit? Very strange.

In here they are trying to promote ostrich meat and eggs for consumption, saying it's very healthy.

Does that..taste like turkey?

I eat lots of salmon, smoked, in the oven, grilled, with sauce, you name it. It's one of the few fishes that actually has some taste for me.

That's bad for your health? I'll have to google that!

Wouldn't be the first time I gulp down over the limits an aliment. I was eating eggs daily for months until I found out you're supposed to eat maximum 3 per week.

I didn't know about the egg rule

Oh the cholesterol level !!!

May we all see horses through the eyes of children

No, and I guess that's why we're on top of the food chain.

What if vegetables also feel pain?
There actually are some studies about it. (I personally think those scientists are nutcases, but let's start from this scenario )

What if that potato actually screams and cringes while you mercilessly peel its skin off? And that poor orange, bleeding juice while you squash it in the Blender of Death?

Why is the lettuce guilty for my spring anemia? Poor being, it can't even run from me.
