People should stop eating meat.

Ever heard of natural selection? In theory, it's basically that if an animal gets hunted down and killed by another animal, then it doesn't live on the pass on its genes to the gene pool. The animals that do live pass on their genes and make their species more fit. "Survival of the fittest," as Darwin puts it.
Humans are animals. We started from where they were, but have slowly made our way up the totem pole with intelligence. Now, why do animals eat other animals? For nutrition, for the protein. We aren't doing anything wrong by killing animals to eat them, so as long as we do EAT them. If we didn't eat the animal and killed it just for fun, that's wrong. I am totally against killing animals for trophies or ivory trade.
Yes, some people like to be vegetarians because they dislike eating meat. That's totally fine. But it would be wrong to tell EVERYONE to stop eating meat because that would deprive humans of something natural and intrinsic.
Besides, if humans hunt and kill animals, we are helping their species by removing an unfit member and stopping that member from reproducing.
Think about it. If eating meat REALLY did make humans sick, and at a fearful rate, wouldn't a lot more of the world be dying of food poisoning? I eat meat almost everyday, and I would probably be dead if that claim was true.
Ever hear of the food crisis? The world is rapidly running out of common vegetables. If everyone in the world stopped eating meat like you want, we would run out of food so fast that being well-fed would become a rarity. Forget eating meat; people would start eating each other to survive.
"I'll show you, when the chips are down, these... these civilized people? They'll eat each other." ~Heath Ledger as Joker.
And the reason for this is that at our core, we are animals. We like to think we are not, but we are just another part of Earth. We like to think that we are higher beings, but we aren't. We're just ahead of the curve.
Let me put it this way. All animals have only two goals: Survive themselves, and pass on their genes to the next generation.
We humans go through school, stay fit, get jobs, to survive. We flirt, we love, we find our match to pass on our genes to the next generation.
At our core, we aren't different from animals. So your claim that "when animals eat animals it nature," is false.
For someone who supposedly "knows the facts" about how animals are treated, you seem reluctant to share them.
