Cause and effect can often be blurred, or argued like chicken and egg philosophical questions. For instance, one author writes, "It is true, when you present a range of fuels to the cells, glucose, fatty acids, protein, mainly, the cells will burn glucose first. From this we deduce that they do that because they prefer glucose. What if the opposite were true; that they burn it because they donít like it and must dispose of it as quickly as possible?"
The same argument can be used about heart cells, but in the other direction.

I don't believe you will find the answer to the question of food by looking at micromanagement of cellular fuel. The answer will be in bigger picture references, such as sustainability, animal rights, compassion, overall human health, recovery, economic feasibility, etc.

If you and your friend are both hungry, go outside and find food. I believe you will find, pick, and eat your dinner of fruit long before your friend can successfully run down, kill, and eat even the smallest animal. For me, that settles the argument.

All animals catch their food easily and quickly, with minimal danger to themselves, whenever possible.
