Animals don%26#039;t kill other animals so cleanly, and it%26#039;s only natural right? It%26#039;s survival, so why do some people have a problem with it?

I was a vegatarian for a whole year but I did it for health reasons not animal rights reason. I undestand where you coming from. But at the same time I respect a vegatarians deciscion as long as he/she doesn%26#039;t preach to me about how bad it is to slaughter animals.

Fact: If the U.S. government banned the slaughtering of animals for human consumption there would be only enough food to feed 40% of the poplulation.

Animals kill other animals because they have to. Nature designed some animals to be carnivores to keep populations in check and ecosystems stable. Humans are not a part of any natural food chain, having opted out of it millenia ago when we started breeding and confining animals. %26quot;It%26#039;s survival%26quot; is a ludicrous argument in the developed world; we can not only survive, but thrive on a plant-based diet and doing so keeps sentient creatures from suffering, preserves natural resources and confers protection from the so-called %26quot;diseases of affluence.%26quot; Additionally, non-human animals do not operate under a moral code. They have neither the capacity nor the responsibility to weigh the ethical ramifications of their decisions. Humans do.

its unnecessary killing, animals cant go to the store and buy fresh vegetables and fruits, we can. and we can live perfectly fine with out the meat. when we eat meat its not for survival.

also there is factory farming, there is NOTHING natural about that. its not right that animals should be born into an shortened and painful life. in the wild they have a chance to fight for themselves, for their lives. in cages they cant do that and its become extremely unnatural, with injecting animals with hormones and such just for increased profit. we dont even treat the animals humanely, all companies care about is the profit.

just my opinion XD

Well people don%26#039;t need to eat animals to survive, so maybe they feel that they don%26#039;t need to hurt something they don%26#039;t need to. Also some vegaterians are not eating meat because farm animals eat more food than they produce, so the food that they are fed could end world hunger. Vegans are weird though i dont understand that.

First of all, carnivores NEED meat to survive, or they will die. Omniovores like humans generally don%26#039;t.

And although there certainly are people who are vegetarian/vegan because they don%26#039;t want to be responsible for the death of other living creatures, there are as many reasons to become a vegetarian/vegan as there are vegetarians/vegans. Many do it for health reasons, many do it because of the inhumane way conventionally raised livestock are raised and killed, many do it for environmental reasons (CAFOs are environmental nightmares on many, many fronts), many people just don%26#039;t like meat that much or have religious objections to eating it.

Personally, I do eat meat, but buy organic, grassfed products as often as possible, because my primary objections to meat eating are inhumane treatment and pollution from conventional agriculture. Grassfed meat is more humane, more environmentally sound, and healthier than meat from animals raised in feedlots or other confinement operations.

We don%26#039;t eat animals because we aren%26#039;t animals. We don%26#039;t eat meat because of cruelty to animals. If we ate animals then we wouldn%26#039;t be vegan/vegetarians. To each his own but I do have a problem with animals being killed for food. I want no part in animal cruelty. If you want to that is fine. I don%26#039;t need animal products to survive. If given the choice between eating animal products or starving I would starve. Darkside, who is the idiot here? I am getting a good chuckle out of how ignorant all of you non-vegan/vegetarians are. We don%26#039;t do it for attention and we aren%26#039;t whores and hippies. If you have nothing positive to contribute then stay out of this section. I do it because of cruelty to animals plain and simple. I don%26#039;t put people down for eating meat. It is a personal choice. So don%26#039;t put us down for not eating meat. You are all ignorant and uninformed.

Because most vegetarians and vegans dont just do it JUST BECAUSE. A lot of people dont understand that there are people out there who dont appreciate how animals are treated in slaughterhouses and how everything that is in the cosmetics aisle is tested on THEM. Plus, everyone likes a good veggie burger, right?
