On a related front...I am stoked for the new Bourne flick.
My dad tells me to watch my rear-view mirror. That is not encouraging.

Just watched Black Book. It was cool to see Canadian soldiers during the liberation of Holland in WW2, especially in a foreign film.

That depends on the animal. Omnivores can live on plant protein. Obligate carnivores - like cats, for instance - cannot.
Nom nom nom.
Plant proteins don't negatively affect cholesterol levels and therefore heart health.

The amount is another thing. Early humans may not have had meat but once a week, not twice a day.

I grilled all kind of meat last night, but wild vs. farmed animal is not significant for health reasons.
What's generally healthy for an animal, is usually determined by the teeth.
Humans have a range of tooth type, some for grinding up vegetation, others for tearing into meat.
Hence, Omnivores.
Removing meat from the diet of an animal that is designed to eat meat, whatever that animal is, is unhealthy.
You wouldn't feed a cat on nothing but carrots and lettuce, would you?

Cows are herbivores... and a few years ago there was a load of infected and malformed cows shipped to the UK from Europe. Turns out the cows had been fed on ground up sheep that was used to bulk up their feed and it caused abnormalities and diseases in the cows.
Not eating salmon is even healthier.
