Such is the case with a recently released Netflix documentary called "What the Health" that several well-meaning, Health-conscious young friends have urged me to watch. And I did try, Until I became so infuriated by misstatements " like eating an egg a day is as bad as smoking five cigarettes, Or that a daily serving of processed meat raises the risk of diabetes 51 percent " that I had to quit for the sake of my health. While the film may have laudable goals, Getting the science wrong simply confuses the issues and infuriates those who might otherwise be supportive.

Animals (the ones that are most popular for consumption) are sentient beings meaning they are capable of experiencing and consciously being aware of physical and emotional pain and pleasure, Thus any physical harm that they experience they are able to experience on the same level as humans, Therefore ethically speaking causing harm to a sentient being is wrong unless it is a required form of suffering for a greater good (assuming a Utilitarian thought process here), Consequently the question should be do the benefits outweigh the suffering enacted upon animals to be able to consume their flesh (let's not sugar-coat it, Meat is rotting flesh). Well, Acknowledging that humans are omnivores and that we are more than able to exist on an entirely vegan diet, One possible conclusion is that the suffering experienced by animals within the industries that convert them into edible products is un-necessary as it isn't a fundamental requirement to survive for people within nations with a sufficient access to alternative sources of food, The exceptions being those who are less fortunate and rely on the killing of animals to sustain their existence or financial income.

On a more practical level we are past "the point of no return" when it comes to global warming, (meat eating/producing is a big contributer). . . Is it okay? . Well what happens happens and thats it. We will probably go extinct somewhere between 2070 and 2170. . . . A lemming could not calculate that. But we will not behave in any other way than a lemming would.
"Problem" solved. . . . ?

The animals do not care. And if they did I would not know.
