Quora – Can humans live without meat?

Can humans live without meat?

[ 21/3/20 ]


10 years ago my oncologist told me I could be dead in 6 weeks, and had a 2% chance of living 2 years. He told me to “get my affairs in order” and I watched him write “palliative care only” on my file.

I have been vegan since then (not much less than that would have gotten me to stop eating meat).

In the last 9 years I cheated only once – and had 3 mussels for my 60th birthday. Other than that – no meat or animal products.

So yes – it is possible.

After a couple of years it even starts to become enjoyable.
