That is true, and I see your point, however there are some things that you should probably know. People can also get all nutrients that they need from other sources, and our bodies digest them just as well. Vegetarians can eat nuts, legumes, soy, and most of the time eggs. They don't really think that we are not meant to eat meat, they just choose for themselves not to for a variety of reasons (environmental, moral, personal, etc.). When done properly, my vegetarian friends say that they feel really good, and it makes it easier for them to eat healthy.
Real vegetarians are just looking to be healthy (which can be done on a proper vegetarian diet), not pushing ideas like no one should eat meat onto people.
Vegans are a bit different, and I'm not sure how I feel about what they do. Also, I don't have any friends who are vegan, so I have no first hand experience with that lifestyle.
It's an individual lifestyle choice, not some cult looking to convert the entire world.
