There is no proof, what so ever, that a person must eat animal flesh or any by products of animals to be healthy, yet there is overwhelming proof that it truly is best not to! What we eat is a learned process or habit. Since the day we are born we are forced into the habits of our parents or those who raise us.

From baby killing to genocide, from Susan Smith to Osama bin Laden, people in every culture experience the urge to kill. Some act on it.
