Dear Claude

Thanks for the understanding - I'm glad about it. Normally, vegetarians are much more militant than "carnivores" (not all of them, though!). I often get into useless, silly discussions about it. I for myself am convinced that it is very difficult (I don't say impossible) to eat a healthy diet without meat, as probably our genetics need meat (but this is not concluded definitely yet). But as I said, I have nothing against vegetarians as long as they don't proselitize. I just get angry when parents for example don't let their children eat meat, which can lead to malnutrition. This is not a conscient decision, but pure irresponsibility.

In a less physical but rather philosophical sense, when I look at my own life, I'm the "hunter - nomad - warrior" type of person to the core. So as well on a deeper level, meat is just natural for me.

I said already, "eines schickt sich nicht für alle", everybody has to find his/her own truth, also when it comes to food.

I do it as you do, I eat consciously, and care for what type of meat I buy, how and especially where it is produced. Switzerland is a traditional meat and milk country, natural conditions are for grassland mainly, and for agriculture just too many soils are violated... (I once wrote a big article about that - and an essay about the nomad/hunter/herder vs. farmer/sedentary/plant producer lifestyle, with a historical and philosophical perspective. Unfortunately, they are in German, so I can't put them to discussion here.

Interesting, the pig thing... I always thought that the eating taboos in various religions, especially when it comes to meat, stem from simply pracitcal reasons, such as hygiene and parasites in a time when nobody had a fridge in the desert. I like to eat raw meat - but it's never pork or poultry, because those are not safe. Not always, but very often the simplest thought is the solution to a mystery. But who knows...
Kind regards, Ima
