1- It Signifigantly Increases Your Risk Of Cancer.
A vast array of studies from top universities and independent researchers has found that eating chickens, cows, and other animals promotes cancer in many forms. Large studies in England and Germany showed that vegetarians were about 40 percent less likely to develop cancer compared to meat-eaters.
2-It Increases Your Risk Of Heart Disease And Diabetes-
This is the reason Bill Clinton went vegan. Meat, dairy products, and eggs all contain cholesterol and saturated fat and contribute to America's top killers: heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, and various types of cancer. Decades of scientific study have linked dietary cholesterol to cardiovascular disease " our country"s number-one cause of death, killing nearly 2,200 Americans daily.
3-Most Meat Has Hormones In It-
To make cows grow at an unnaturally fast rate, the cattle industry feeds them pellets full of hormones. While low levels of naturally-occurring hormones are found in various foods, many scientists are concerned that the artificial hormones injected into cows especially cause health problems in people who eat them.
You can get all the essential proteins from food like baens nuts
quinoa lens and many more.I dont see a point in eating meat.


I would first like to thank my opponent for creating this debate.

I would like to assert that while processed meat is bad for you, there is little to no correlation for these same three points for unprocessed red meat.

"It Signifigantly Increases Your Risk Of Cancer."

"While it is true that processed meat strongly correlates with increased cancer risk, the same is not true for unprocessed red meat. In so-called meta-analyses, which are studies that analyze the data from many studies at the same time, the link between red meat and cancer is found to be very weak."

"These studies only find a very small increase in risk for men, and no increase for women."

"It Increases Your Risk Of Heart Disease And Diabetes"

"In a massive study from Harvard that looked at data from 20 studies with a total of 1,218,380 individuals, they found no association between unprocessed red meat, cardiovascular disease and diabetes."

Processed meat is proven to increase the risk of heart disease and diabetes, however, recent studies have proven that there is no link between those two factors and red meat.

"Most Meat Has Hormones In It"

This is true, yet there is not enough data to support whether this is bad for you as so little research has been done on the subject.

"'s not clear if such hormones truly are bad for our health. Surprisingly little research has been done on the health effects of these hormones in humans, in part because it's difficult to separate the effects of added hormones from the mixture of natural hormones, proteins, and other components found in milk and meat."

I eagerly await my opponent's response and wish them the best of luck.
