A bit about strict veggie diet history.
For several years human beings have been eating flesh in big amounts, but this, has not always been this way.
Long time ago, middle-class people were surviving with what they could obtain from the exploitation of their own lands, and the quantity of meat available was really low so basically my grandfather was able to consume these animal products just occasionally.As the time passed the production of anything became more automatic, with better strategies, machines and technology so a meat industry came up and convinced us all that it was necessary to consume it every day and all the time.
For the skepticals, in addition need to know that our ancestors had a very particular diet, mainly fruit.
Trillions and trillions of human have existed since the beginning of the times and they have lived with a poor meat diet, even with no meat at all, so this shows that actually the human body can sustain itself perfectly without it
