Not absolutely necessary but it makes adequate nutrition much easier. Meat is a very concentrated source of nutrients. Many societies have legume/grain dishes to make up for the deficiency of amino acids in plants.

The Meat and Dairy industry wants you to believe you cannot live without them. My husband is vegan 55 and stopped growing when he was 34 years old. He works hard every day and enjoys life. He does not worry about his health.

Probably not, but it makes meals much more enjoyable.

No it is NOT. There are plenty of foods that have enough protein.

I think it depends on the person. Some people do fine on vegetarian or vegan diets and feel great. Other people do not absorb nutrients as easily from plant based foods or cannot digest them that well so become malnourished without meat or animal protein in their diet.

However quality meats are health.
Occasional organ meat such as liver is good for health.

No, it isn't. There are lots of healthy vegetarians in the world.
BTW in India, it is the vegetarians who have too much fat in their diets, not the meat eaters. All that ghee.

Its challenging without meat to get enough saturated fat, cholesterol and all of the essential amino acids. If you are going to go vegan or vegetarian you will have to learn all you can about nutrition or you could end up malnourished.
