    I can’t imagine I would eat it. I very rarely eat meat, but when I crave it I buy an organic grass fed hormone free filet mignon. It is more costly, but I eat it once in a while and feel it’s pure nutrition. I am very careful as to what I consume. I feel so much better when I do. You are what you eat!!

    Why? Stupidity, it would seem. Or a desire to die, as by rejecting the treatment that would have saved him he essentially committed suicide.
    But he was such a smart guy, and fairly young.

    I wonder if he had a change of heart before the end, but after it was too late?

    Maybe he thought he knew more than the doctors?

    Was it a death wish or a stupid belief in alternative medicine? As was said, idiots in some areas.

    Probably this. Pseudoscience is very popular.

    Yes, and Donald Trump subsists on a steady diet of Big Mac cheeseburgers, McDonald's French Fries, and KFC Fried Chicken.

    Reputedly, he actually has less fear of being poisoned by eating such stuff.

    But I bet Ol' Vlad could still get him, if he really wanted to.

    Oh, I'd at least give it a taste test. I've tasted the meat substitutes that are now available, whenever I've been involved in preparing a meal for vegetarians. Of course we aren't really "what we eat". Otherwise, dogs would become poop.

    Yes and no. At least SOME humans have genes that lead them to SEEK out novel experiences. to try things they have never tried before.

    Were that not true, would ANY human have EVER tried eating a lobster?
