Everyone should become a vegetarian
Debate Rounds (4)
5 Reasons Why They Shouldn't:
1. Humans have been eating meat for millions of years and it is an essential part of our evolution.
2. Vegetarian diets can cause the death of animals (such as birds, mice, and rabbits) that live in agricultural crop fields are killed during harvest.
3. Meat is the most convenient source of protein.
4. Research has shown that many plants feel fear.
5. A meat-centred diet can help with weight loss. It takes fewer calories to get protein from lean meat than it does from vegetarian options.
Many farms don't actually kill the animals; they wait until they die of natural causes. That way the animals get to live a full life, instead of being killed earlier for food.
You do have a point with some of the other sources of protein there, so I won't argue with that. There is, however, another point I'd like to bring up.
You don't think we should eat animals such as chicken. But what about fish? They are animals who's life is cut short for our food, yet vegetarians are still willing to eat them.
I don't really agree with it being called animal cruelty. They are killed quickly and painlessly, so it can't really be cruelty. Cruelty is when the animals are tortured and in pain, or not being fed. The animals are fed, because otherwise there wouldn't be enough meat on them.
A) we end up eating food that is poisonous to a certain extent
B) the way we get our food is through animal crulty
As I have said before. This is a privilege. We abused it. So it's time to live without it.
To respond to what you said about the fish. Well if we follow this system out (making everyone a vegeterian)we will not offer fish as food just like how we don't offer dog as food.
Just a note on the side line: thanks for debating with me. You have helped me to a great extent.
I do agree with it being sick and inhumane for them to pump chemicals into the animals; in fact, I wish there was some kind of law passed that makes it illegal to do that. The thing is, there isn't one. I don't see why they even do that, and I completely agree with you that they shouldn't.
I'm completely at loss as to what to say for the rest, as you've been a brilliant debater with brilliant arguments and you've made me agree with lots of things I didn't before.
I have a feeling you might win this.
