However, much of the animals we consume are bred in unnaturally high numbers so that enough meat is produced for us. This issue could be resolved if humans no longer ate meat because then there would be no reason to breed these animals and their numbers would return to normal. Although I do not believe Taylor and Taylor’s argument is presented well, I do agree with them. They do not always bring up strong points and rarely provide adequate support, but they do have a good overall argument. It is unethical for humans to produce and consume meat.
Some people believe that eating meat causes your lifespan to decrease due to its bad benefits. The bigger issue to eating meat, is the effects it has on the environment as a whole. Even with these ongoing issues millions of Americans continue to consume meat yearly. Meat takes a long time to process in order to get from farm to your plate. Meat used to be something that everyone would consume, but until recently it has been a huge threat to our environment.
If our number one concern is health then why would we not cut out a major health issue such as meat? Meat is most certainly a health issue due to there being so much bad meat out there. Recently within the past couple of months 8.7 million pounds of meat got recalled due to e coli. The way the animals are being processed and slaughtered is inhummane and incredibly un-sanitary. People are dieing because of the way the meat is being cleaned and processed so why not cut it out?
However, this is very difficult to achieve when meat is part of our daily meal plan. The only way to stay healthy and continue eating meat is to put a limit on the amount of meat we consume. Unfortunately, nowadays most people are often tempted by the taste and appearance of the meat products on the market and it is very difficult for them to resist. That is why the solution of a balanced diet can not be practically used. Moreover, it has been recently proven that many diseases are commonly prevented, consistently improved, and often cured by a low-fat vegetarian diet.
Meat can be very harmful to your health and the environment. That's why vegetarianism is an idealistic lifestyle. Meat-eaters unethically use resources by: killing animals, causing pollution and deforestation, and putting themselves at risk for high cholesterol, cancer, and obesity. We all know that one person amongst our friends or family that has a heart for animals and refuses the thought of eating a poor furry friend. Others believe that animals were put here for a reason to be eaten and used as a resource, but what most people don't know is how badly animals are mistreated in factories and in slaughterhouses.
With America eating more meat than ever and growing sicker than ever, the dangers of a meat-heavy diet must be examined. We may now consider meat an essential part of the human diet, but in previous eras it was nothing more than a luxury. In addition, the present state of factory-farmed animals can lead to nothing but outrageously unhealthful meat. Many omnivores wonder how vegetarians survive on the nonstandard diet. Many vegetarians wonder how omnivores do survive.
Did you know that a vegetarian's diet can be unhealthy because of the food that they consume and the things that they lack in their diet? While many are debating healthy choices, vegetarianism is more about making healthy decisions than arguing its lifestyle with non-vegetarians. In today's society, meat eaters are portrayed as inconsiderate and unhealthy people. Animal rights activist say that meat eaters are wrong for killing animals. The news, infomercials, and social websites always state the negative things that could come from eating meat such as obesity.
There are myths about vegetarian diets that it is a healthy, moral alternative to meat and that it is far better for the world than meat incorporated diets. But the facts that state these claims are outdated, bias and poorly supported. Alternative meat products ravage US crops and don’t even provide proper, full nutrition to support a brain that has developed through years of meat sustained diets. Vegetarianism is a crop-destroying, world devastating, unhealthy and unneeded alternative to a weight maintaining lifestyle of meat eating. Top soil in 90% of US cropland is at a loss by 13 times the sustainable rate, this drop is due to the high demand for vegetables like soybeans, a vegetarian meat alternative, that take up 92% of the crops in the US.
The meat industry today is not what it was nearly a century ago. While improvements are thought to have been made, an ever changing society has brought upon new problems that have been piled on to the previously existing ones. While these problems are not like those found in The Jungle, they do parallel how by exposing what is going on in the meat industry; new regulations would be the answer to the noted problems. The increased demand for meat has made it a rushed mutated production instead of a means to raise livestock for consumers. Taking into consideration the demand for cheap meat that will be used for in quick and high demanded products such as frozen and fast food, this demand of meat has greatly skyrocketed.
