Humans are the most complex organisms on Earth. Most complex animals eat meat due to the fact that they are on top of the food chain. Humans in fact are on the top of the food chain and must require meat in order to survive. It makes no sense why we should not eat meat since we are capable of hunting.
Meat is healthy and people say that meateaters are terrible,meat should be a choice,and veggatraians are killers to,they kill the plants so why are they complaining about us killing something when there killing a plant,we all need to kill something to eat meat,people need to get over it and let us make our own choices
The case for humans to eat meat is simple, we have and there is no reason to stop. By our very evolutionary nature, we are ancestors that could neither comprehend nor care of any moral implications to killing and eating other animals. Our digestive tracts are made to handle meats of a very large variety purely for this reason.
I think that as humans our bodies require a certain amount of animal meat to survive. We break it down and gather protein, nutrients, good stuff from their bodies. I don't agree with animal cruelty, I don't believe we should wear fur coats, but what's wrong with having a cheeseburger?
The idea that animals eat meat is not controversial at all. So I do not think the idea that humans--an animal--eats meat should be any more controversial, and this is coming from a vegetarian. I do think humans shouldn't eat as much meat, and excessive meat might very well be the root of many of our health problems.
We should eat meat. Its healthy and it controls the population of animals. Every day at least 9 billion chickens are born and 9.5 million cows are born just in america. Us humans our born rate is very small compared to animals we have a 4.2 million humans born every year. If we dont kill animals we would have know place to go.
We find it tasty because we're supposed to eat it! It's great being on top of the food chain.
Hey. Im a non vegiie here......
I dont understand something... Why do vegans and non vegans go around bashing each other.....
To be honest its more like a discussion between an atheist and a religious person.
For any person to assume that they are all knowing and right and are behaving for the wellness of enviournmnt is kinda really stupid.
We dont really live long enuf to know d opposite,
what we considered a a non living thing 100 yrs back isnt considered a non living anymore.
We dont know how far the ripples of our actions go.
To assume any ones of us to be completly and utterly right is very immature.
None of us know even 50% of our own human bodies... Let alone of that of plants and animals.
How do ve know we arn't torturng the plants... Because it doesnt scream help ?
Does it mean that killing a paralysed dumb and deaf human is fine... For all the people assuming that its morally wrong to kill animals but not plants.. It hypocritical when specially when w dont know much.
For all the non vegetarians who say its a must to eat non vegie... Dat is stupid too
no choice is fully right or wrong... And to believe we have all the answers to all the arguemnts and questions is so stupid.
Yes humans should have the choice to eat meat. We have been eating meat in some form for thousands of years. Meat has a lot of nutrients that we can't get from other sources. We should limit cruelty to the animals we eat but we should have the right to eat meat.
YOU VEGGIE KILLERS! All plants have feelings, i saw on tv that they experience fear and love. You can't see it because the plants dont have defining physical features. Just know vegetarians, everytime you bite a leaf, it screams. Also meat is tastie and i love it so everyone else should.
Because of the environmental aspects people should not eat meat. Cows produce methane. Methane is about three times more toxic to Earth's atmosphere than Carbon Dioxide. Also, many animals are brutally killed and during their small lifetime are packed full of steroids which make them grow faster. To add to this, meat if burnt is cancer causing. In fact, that big mac WILL come back to haunt you...
Great apes have slicers, have 500 pounds of muscle but still do not eat meat. You get more nutrients and Omega 3s from avocados, seeds, and other sources. It's torturous and cruel with manipulative people who don't even want their practices aired so most aren't allowed to do so and they are even demanding regulations on recordings right now. Think of it as you. Evolve!
No, humans should not eat meat. People would be much healthier if they stuck strictly to grains, fruit and vegetables in their diets. The vitamins and antioxidants in a fruit, grain and vegetable diet would help our immune systems to work better, decrease cell degradation and sharpen mental acuity. Sticking to an all fruit, vegetable and grain diet would just improve our overall health.
Being able to eat meat is not a good reason to do so. Out bodies do not require it, they simply have the ability to digest it. That is why all humans, regardless of diet, are omnivores - we are all able to digest both plants and meat.
As to reasons why we implicitly should not eat meat - simply, the factory farming system we currently use to produce our meat causes very real pain and suffering to millions of animals, throughout their lives until their slaughter. These are lives that are created by human intervention via artificial insemination, whose well-being is not looked after beyond what is profitable, that suffer mutilation without anesthetic to reduce costs, and are led to slaughter for no other reason than to feed human appetites for meat.
The animal's suffering is not necessary, and therefore is barbaric. To fund this practice by purchasing meat in full knowledge of these practices is equally barbaric.
Animals deserve the same rights as humans. Mechanically our teeth are not even meant to eat meat. We are only able to because of technology. Animals are mistreated and tortured every day because of our carelessness, so why kill innocent creatures if we do not have to? Why not just stop eating meat altogether?
We would never consume animals we are close to. So why consume anything with parents? We do not need to kill animals to live. That is just selfish. Sure, it tastes good. Sex also feels good. We don't go around having sex with anyone we can find (Well, we shouldn't anyway). Vegetarians live longer. Vegetarians have a 40% less chance of getting cancer.
I was brought up vegan, i know many healthy vegans/vegetarians- we don't just drop dead because we don't eat meat. We are PERFECTLY HEALTHY and CAN survive easily off a plant based diet (which is arguably much healthier when well-planned: definitely healthier than the average meat eater i assure you). And so, when you acknowledge the immeasurable amount of suffering and death inflicted upon billions of animals each year, mainly factory farmed- how on earth can you justify your eating habits? How the hell can it be justified when we can thrive perfectly healthily on a veggie/vegan diet?? It's beyond me. It either makes you heartless or utterly selfish and ignorant. There are many arguments for and against why humans should eat meat but at the end of the day we have evolved into so-called compassionate beings- we understand when an animal suffers and understand the concept of something being 'necessary' as opposed to just being for pleasure. People eat meat for pleasure only, for taste, that's it- it's certainly not necessary and we can live a perfectly healthy life without it. Regarding diet- humans can survive with or without meat- equally healthily depending on the person. Regarding the ethics of eating meat- there is absolutely no excuse for it and it's a disgusting, selfish industry which exemplifies the utter selfishness and collective evil of humanity.
Meat causes environmental problems and health issues, but we are one. Pigs are like our pets too.
They can't be free and explore the world. They are smart, and their babies are taken away from them. There's no good reason to continue eating meat. Would you like to be born to die?
Put yourself in the animals' shoes. As soon as you are born, would you want to be stuffed with artificial growth hormones, live a short life, get stuffed in between two pieces of bread, and then have a PERSON die off of you because they got a heart attack or stroke? Yeah. I didn't think so. The human race is the most selfish, hungry, bloodthirsty organism the world has ever seen, and it will always be the fault of the ones who make the burger, and the one who eats the burger. Eating other animals might be what God intended, but deep frying thousands of them to make a quick buck is NOT what he had in mind.
Aside from a doctor (and dietitian) of a large, major hospital telling my mother that she should drop meat entirely (aside from eggs and fish), I have done my own trial and error.
Arguments like, "we always ate meat" or "animals have feelings too" don't make much sense to me. 1st of all, I have only been around for 30 years. I'm a skeptic. 2nd of all, plants have feelings too... And so that is irrelevant.
Anyway, trial and error... I ate meat for most of my life. Then I gave it up (with exception of fish) and I felt better. Constipation? Nope. Blood pressure? Perfect. Energy? Better than ever. Strength? Unchanged. Then I went back to eating meat, and instantly felt sick to my stomach.
So I avoid meat. Another benefit is that it's great for the environment... Which is easy to research. Do it, if you haven't.
Don't bash the other side unless you are willing to consider it and try it. Being open minded is the answer. =)
