Well, perhaps I did miss something, but all I saw were articles relating to milk, soy and livestock: three known destroyers of man.
I do not wish to argue (I may be in the wrong place then!) but I must state that, in my opinion, Beyond Vegitarianism is a propaganda site full of pretentious and extremely negative viewpoints. It is not something I choose to waste my time with. It mirrors your own sentiment:
"...some sort of animal protein is neccessary for good health..."
In my opinion this is the single most ridiculous comment anyone can make in regards diet. This is the kind of belief, in my view, that will pollute you, infect you, and indeed shorten your lifespan by decades.
Personally, I do not have the problems with food that you mention, and so I am not fit to comment on this matter directly. I simply eat what I feel is necessary, when I feel my body most requires it. I also firmly believe that "Divinity" exists at its peak within purity, and one who is more pure than another (or others) is consequently more "Divine" (if this term is to be used).
I shall refrain from explaining exactly what I think of meat-eaters, as this will surely provoke a riot.
Best to you.
