    The Dingle Peninsula here is far from the wealthiest part of the country but it has an insane life expectancy, I've always said it's down to food wealth, brilliant local healthcare, awareness (as many are farmers, chefs etc and understand the value of quality food) and a clean environment. We had one parish where they had 6 deaths in a year (one of which was my grandmother bless her) a couple of years back and the lowest (bar one car crash) was 93 years old.

    As have I, been connected to farming/hunting all my life, balance in all things is the key.

    Respect is exactly right, I don’t think some people think about the fact an animal has given up its life to feed them.

    Yep and while I won't feel bad about that as tbf from a species point of view we've protected and helped them for tens of thousands of years and more, I'll always respect it.

    I was referring to the health aspects of eating vegetarian. Have yet to hear of a gorilla dying of cancer!

    I'm sure some do tbf. Plenty also die because a species out evolved them and systematically destroy their habitat to benefit themselves.
