    I think you'l find that the VFT does need insects for optimum growth....how else does it obtain it's nitrogen? nitrogen is need for growth as it a vital element found in amino acids, and the location where they are found naturally have very little nitrogen content in the soil, hence they have developed through evolution traps to catch insects.
    it's like when a baby is breastfed, it's not ESSENTIAL to be breastfed, as it wont die, but when it is breastfed, many of the essential nutrients and cells that defend the body from disease is passed on from the mother to the baby.

    LOL!!!! sorry dear, but im afraid unless you actually hunt you own animal, the animals you eat are espcially grown for human consumption. if the demand for meat decreased the suppliers would breed less animals. You dont honestly believe that butchers/supermarkets etc kill animals they find naturally? they are all mass bred in farms/barns boxes etc and pumped with hormones to produce meat quicker for the high demand of humans.

    Don't know about else where but here in Wisconsin. Most farms don't use hormones, they actually feed them foods that are high in the vitamins and minerals they need to produce high quantities of meat/milk depending on the cow. I just spent the day touring farms all over the place. We got to see them mixing the food for the cows. We only went to dairy farms, but they are fed better then meat cattle.

    I know that, and that's not what I meant. I was referring to game animals, such as wild turkey or deer. If it weren't for hunters, deer would overpopulate and starve, especially during winter.

    Scientists theorize that the reason kids are starting puberty so much earlier nowadays is because of the growth hormones chickens are given.

    If there weren't hunters then the wolves would still be able to keep the deer population in check. Even without the wolves, deer start to die of blue-tongue disease when they are overpopulating.

    I don't feel good about eating dead animals, but I can't live without meat. Chicken is a huge part of my live. KFC 4-EVA.

    Besides, I don't eat much anyway, and I gotta get protein somewhere... I don't get to eat beans that often.
    LOL sounds like me....chicken chicken chicken...

    What is blue-tongue disease? Why do hunters think that they are solution? What if wolves aren't indigenous to some areas, like just outside suburban sprawl?

    I just cut off a plant that was starting to turn black and it was one with a big black ant in it. The black was starting at the mouth of the ant.
