I believe excessive consumption of meat by the USA is not only the cause of world wide man made global warming (MMGW) but also why America is such a warmongering nation.
The USA has become a scourge upon the face of this planet.
I place my trust in President Obama, be forever protected from a redneck assassin, to reverse this trend.
His beautiful wife, The First Lady, Michelle Obama, has made a start by planting and harvesting a bountiful crop of vegetables in the Whitehouse gardens.

Homo Sapiens, like all primates are generalized omnivores. It is not appropriate to remove meat entirely from the human diet. If the muslims are concerned with their health, they would better serve themselves by not strapping explosives to themselves and blowing up innocent people.

The numbers involved in Suicide bombing ( bombers and victims) is miniscule in the greater scheme of life on this planet.

"It is not appropriate to remove meat entirely from the human diet"
Fact-Those who don't eat meat live longer than meat eaters.

The ridiculous 'rules' Mo made for his followers makes life difficult in the modern world.

I assumed you would have known "all things being equal" for a valid comparison, such as within the same country, non-smokers etc.
I was wrong.

Let's try another way.
Don't you think there might be another reason for this apart from
meat consumption.

Yes, there are other reasons. All things being equal, vegetarians have lower risk of some diseases and health problems.
