Most Vegetarians Revert To Eating Meat 12/8/2014 3:35 PM ET According to a new research at the Humane Research Council, more than 80 percent of vegetarians go back to eating meat at some point in their life. The data included 11,000 American adults. Only two percent of the sample remained exclusively vegetarian, and 88 percent reported no return to a vegetarian diet. Though the study specifically asked about the consumption of red meat by former vegetarians, the researchers say the largest amount of meat consumed was poultry, specifically chicken. Backsliding seemed to occur regardless of the initial zeal for a non meat diet, as demonstrated by a recent interview at a PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) shelter. The staffer, who chose to remain anonymous, said: “This is Bullshit. If nobody was around, I’d be in the back cooking up a pet ferret or chewing the head off of an abandoned Parrot”. The interview concluded with the PETA staffer asserting: “Vegetables ain’t food. Vegetables is what food eats.”
