From Jane velez-mitchell's book Addict Nation: "Researchers use the drug naloxone to block opiate receptors in volunteers, meat loses some of its appeal. Researchers in Edinburgh, Scotland, found that blocking meat's opiate effect cut the appetite for ham by 10 %, knocked out the desire for salami by about 25%, and cut tuna consumption by nearly 50%. They found much the same thing for cheese"
So when people stop for a giant slice of pizza or a giant ice cream, they could actually be addicted to it. Just going in there for a pleasure hit. They crave the numbing effect dairy offers (similar to an opiate). They want to dull their pain it seems. I think I would rather treat the actual problem, like what is causing the pain. I really do. What if you had a tumor, like a very serious health problem, would you just want to be masking that discomfort? So you are in pain so you reach for the slice of pizza and bowl of ice cream to make you feel good. Like what if this opiate/numbing effect covered up a serious illness? I just think I would want to know what pain I'm feeling and actually do something about the pain to get rid of it. I guess I see people going for the numbing their pain pizza slice/ice cream cone all the time when out in public. Jane velez-mitchell actually calls these type of people "meat junkies."

Lomedin: Learned by chance that Kat Von D is vegan. Didn't have a clue who she was before.

Vegan: I'm on an antinatilist group and only found out about her on that. Had no idea who she was before as never heard of her.

cybernaut: Well, it can be a little hard for me to come here sometimes because of how negative things can get here. I realize there's much to be negative about, but it's still hard for me all the same.
