7 Very Simple Reasons

Edward

There are 7 very simple reasons that I am a vegetarian.

  1. UNESSENTIAL: WE DON’T NEED MEAT TO SURVIVE
    Humans don’t need meat to survive and live a healthy life. They eat it because it tastes good. That alone is not a good enough reason to put animals through suffering.
  2. HYPOCRISY: YOU COULDN’T KILL, GUT AND CHOP IT YOURSELF
    Most people don’t like the sight of an animal being killed, let alone could they do it themselves. Eating them is therefore hypocrisy.
  3. COMPASSION: ANIMALS FEEL PAIN AND FEAR TOO
    Farm animals feel pain just like us and just like your pets. Electrocuting/cutting their throats is barbaric and inhumane. Farm animals are treated like a product and not like sentient beings that they are. They are fed hormones, are beaten and thrown about and live in confined spaces with complete disregard for their well-being.“Don’t do to others what you don’t want done to yourself”.
  4. COWARDICE: LIKE BABIES, ANIMALS DON’T HAVE A VOICE TO FIGHT FOR THEIR RIGHTS
    Slavery was once legal. Women once didn’t have right to vote. Gays don’t have the right to marry in some places. But they all have a voice to fight for their rights. Animals can’t beg for their lives or freedom but that is not enough reason that they should be stripped from those rights. In the same way that killing an innocent and voiceless baby is the most horrific act of violence, so is killing and mistreating an animal.
  5. HEALTH: VEGETARIANS ARE HEALTHIER
    Vegetarians live longer and have 40% to 70% less chance of getting cancer and other diseases than meat eaters.
  6. ENVIRONMENT: ANIMAL FARMING IS BAD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
    Half the rainforests in the world have been cleared for grazing; methane from livestock causes global warming; soil is eroded by cattle; slurry poisons waterways; and the seas are laid to waste by overfishing. The global appetite for meat and the industrial techniques of the meat industry are destroying the Earth. Farming contributes to 18% of all greenhouse gases produced by humans. That’s more than all forms of transport put together.
  7. HUNGER: GRAIN THAT’S BEING FED TO ANIMALS COULD GO TO STARVING PEOPLE
    While 750 million people go to bed hungry every night, one-third of the world’s grain is fed to farmed animals. A typical Western meat-based diet can only feed 2.5 billion people: a plant-based diet will feed every one of us.

    really surprised that you never talk about the joy of eating something that you love, a taste, a texture, a flavor maybe, a fruit or veg you like…

    I’m enJOYing a colorful and well-balance whole-food, plant-based diet, because I like it! There is no meaning, its effort-less… I just love it, enjoy it each time I’m cooking, it drives my curiosity, I discover new ideas, share cooking experimentations…

    I don’t judge people eating habits, I don’t think I’m superior based on my herbivore diet.

    I may be wrong, but you may miss a point here. If you share love, compassion, inspire people by sharing great recipes of wonderful & colorful food, that might actually be more positive; than trying to dictate, preach or judge people’s behavior, repeating info or facts on how bad they are by having specific eatings habits that you reject… don’t you think?

    You are right we don’t need meat to survive but everyone doesn’t think it tastes good! Either way, it’s definitely not a good enough reason for the himsa (violence)involved.

    Another good point. Most people couldn’t do the deed themselves. Hence why, if they ever visit a slaughterhouse, they are often put off meat for a while, if not forever.

    Yes! Amazing that it’s taken so long to scientifically prove that fish also feel pain regardless of whether they’re cold blooded or not!

    Have you seen the PETA video that exposes the maltreatment of cows in India. http://is.gd/koCy

    Having a voice! True. If you had to have a voice to deserve the right to live; people who could not speak because of a physical disability or an emotional trauma, for example, could be killed right? Of course, absolutely preposterous! Does this not apply to animals?

    Does the economy need to keep the poor poor so that others remain better off? Perhaps it’s part of the plan, hence why alternate animal feed has not been found and successfully replaced grain!

    What do you think?

    Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you realize some of the pictures aren’t packing effectively. I am not sure the reason why but I believe the the linking problem. I have tried it by 50 percent diverse internet browsers and both display the same final results.

    When I initially commented I clicked tthe “Notify me when new comments are added”
    checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get several
    e-mails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Thank you!
