Is vegetarianism environmentally and health friendly?
Debate Rounds (3)
Given that cave men and old descendants have been eating meat for centuries isn't it sensible that we follow their diet? Or do vegetarians feel that this is a new way to a better and healthy life?
May I ask that we don't venture into the morals of vegetarianism and whether it is right to kill an animal.
I look forward to your feedback. Thank you.
A thing to bring up is what actually are we eating with meat. It is a common knowledge that hormones have been given to poultry and various other animals to enable them to mature faster but the hormones are passed on to humans and can lead to precocious puberty. Also there have been cases of horse meat been sold as beef and as a consumer we deserve to know what were being sold and in china various other animals have replaced what people thought was being sold. So as a consumer the only way to beat this problem is to raise and slaughter your own animals or spend extra money on meat that has not been chemically changed (or at least we can hope so)
I agree, however is it not just as bad to be having meat substitutes that are genetically engineered and filled with poison that is much less natural than everyday meat you would by from a supermarket? The horse meat scandal shows that people take the time to look at the contents of the meat to check that it is the healthiest way to go. However, would a vegetarian know whether there was meat hidden inside their veggie burger? Maybe not. Also, I am 14 and a few of my friends are vegetarians. In general they are shorter and thinner than other people. This isn't bad, but it shows that without meat it is difficult to get the right balance of vitamins and minerals.
I look forward to hearing your reply!!
The whole circle of life revolves around humans eating meat
http://www.veghealthguide.com... There will always be that vegetarian who does not really look into it. But as a closing statement I have to ask if it is so bad for you why do so many people become one other from the obvious answer I really can't say people also do it for a much healthier lifestyle sure eating meats will give you more vitamins and minerals but being a vegetarian will give you a hell of a lot more nutrients.
