Re: Eating meat?
No it is not wrong as long as you can kill, cook and eat the same animal.

If you cannot do this you are just a pig that eats everything hf

Re: Eating meat?
An excellent question.

Did any one ask animals for permission to kill them.
What kind of after life do animals have after they are slaughtered?
Why animals have fears, feel pain and instinctively know how to survive?
Why do animals become what they are in the first place?
Why do hunters go crazy and die in the hunting ground?

If the answer is that animals are created for men's consumption, it is simply a brush off.
Would you like to sit on stove or in a frier with boiling oil.

Why some people behave like animal. Their conscious levels are lower than others.

Look around you and think deeper, you will find the answer.

* *Adolf Hitler was apparently NOT a vegetarian. It is our understanding that, because of health issues (such as flatulence) and his doctor's advice, he ate vegetarian food yet, on occasion, would eat his favorite flesh foods, such as squab, so does not qualify as a vegetarian. He was more of a "Famous Flexitarian"!

Re: Eating meat?
I have just become vegetarian in the past few days...

Up until sunday, I was a meat-eater although, I did have some reservations about it all...

Until sunday, when I was ravenously devouring a chicken leg, and all of a sudden, I really looked at what I was eating and became totally nauseated and could not eat any more of it.

Now, I cannot even think about eating meat. Which was a total 180 degree turn, from how I lived the first 50 years of my life. A change for the better I would say, and long overdue!

Re: Eating meat?
An excellent question.

Did any one ask animals for permission to kill them.
What kind of after life do animals have after they are slaughtered?
Why animals have fears, feel pain and instinctively know how to survive?
Why do animals become what they are in the first place?
Why do hunters go crazy and die in the hunting ground?

If the answer is that animals are created for men's consumption, it is simply a brush off.
Would you like to sit on stove or in a frier with boiling oil.

Why some people behave like animal. Their conscious levels are lower than others.

Look around you and think deeper, you will find the answer.
 Quoting: knd 684128


If you want to feel lighter with less fear..eat less meat.
Try and give a thought for the spirit of the animal and that it lived like you.

I agree look inside for an answer.

No it is not wrong as long as you can kill, cook and eat the same animal.

If you cannot do this you are just a pig that eats everything hf

Re: Eating meat?
There is nothing wrong with eating animal meat.... It's the circle of life.

You don't go to the lion and demand of him not to eat animals.


But what is wrong is the inhuman treatment of the animals.... overproduction and overconsumption.


If all animals would live a deserving life and are then killed for our survival, there is nothing wrong with it.


But what the human civilization did, is wrong.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 684069




You face it u do not have enough grasp of the subject, here

is just a few reasons why eating meat is not good .

perfectly natural ?


The Environment

1. Conservation of Fossil fuel. It takes 78 calories of fossil fuel to produce 1 calorie of beef protein; 35 calories for 1 calorie of pork; 22 calories for 1 of poultry; but just 1 calorie of fossil fuel for 1 calorie of soybeans. By eating plant foods instead of animal foods, I help conserve our non-renewable sources of energy.

2. Water Conservation. It takes 3 to 15 times as much water to produce animal protein as it does plant protein. As a vegetarian I contribute to water conservation.

3. Efficient use of grains. It takes up to 16 pounds of soybeans and grains to produce 1 lb. of beef and 3 to 6 lbs. to produce 1 lb of turkey & egg. By eating grain foods directly, I make the food supply more efficient & that contributes to the environment.

4. Soil conservation. When grains & legumes are used more efficiently, our precious topsoil is automatically made more efficient in its use. We use less agricultural resources to provide for the same number of people.

5. Saving our forests. Tropical forests in Brazil and other tropic regions are destroyed daily, in part, to create more acreage to raise livestock. By not supporting the meat industry, I directly reduce the demand to pillage these irreplaceable treasures of nature. Since the forest land "filters" our air supply and contains botanical sources for new medicines, this destruction is irreversable.

6. Asthetics. Decaying animal parts, whether in a freezer case or served in restaurants, can never be as asthetically pleasing to the senses as the same foods made from wholesome vegetable sources. Only habit can allow one not to perceive this: a change in diet makes this self evident.


Personal Health
7. No deficiencies. There is no nutrient necessary for optimal human functioning which cannot be obtained from plant food.

8. High fat plus cholesterol. Animal foods are higher in fat than most plant foods, particularly saturated fats. Plants do not contain cholesterol.

9. "Carb" deficient. Meat is deficient in carbohydrates, particularly the starches which are so essential to proper health.

10. Vitamin deficient. Except for the b-complex, meat is largely deficient in vitamins.

11. Agricultural Chemicals. Being higher on the food chain, animal foods contain far higher concentrations of agricultural chemicals than plant foods, including pesticides, herbicides, etc.

12. Exposure to livestock drugs. There are over 20,000 different drugs, including sterols, antibiotics, growth hormones and other veterinary drugs that are given to livestock animals. These drugs are consumed when animal foods are consumed. The dangers herein, in secondary consumption of antibiotics, are well documented.

13. Pathogenic Microorganisms. There are a host of bacteria and viruses, some quite dangerous, that are common to animals. When I eat meat, I eat the organisms in the meat. Micro-organisms are present in plant foods too, but their number and danger to human health is by no means comparable to that of those in meat.

14. Worms and other Parasites. Ditto on # 13!

15. Shelf life differential. Plant foods last longer than animal foods. Try this experiment: Leave out a head of lettuce and a pound of hamburger for 1 day, which will make you sick?

16. Organoleptic Indications of Pathenogens. Plant foods give tell-tale signs of "going bad". Ever hear of someone getting sick from "bad broccoli"?

17. Heart Disease. Meat eating increases the risk of heart disease, this country's #1 killer. The correlation is an epidemiological fact.

18. Cancer prevention. Of all the natural cancer prevention substances found: vitamin C, B-17, hydroquionenes, beta carotene, NDGA, - none has been found to be animal derived. Yet most meats, when cooked, produce an array of benzenes and other carcinogenic compounds. Cancer is infinitely easier to prevent than cure. Soybeans contain protease inhibitor, a powerful anticancer compound. You won't find it in useful quantities in animal based food.

19. Disease Inducing. The correlation between meat consumption and a wide range of degenerative diseases is well founded and includes.....

20. Osteoporosis

21. Kidney Stones and Gallstones

22. Diabetes

23. Multiple Sclerosis

24. Arthritis

25. Gum disease

26. Acne. Aggravated by animal food.

27. Obesity. Studies confirm that vegetarians tend to be thinner than meat eaters. Obesity is considered by doctors to be a disease within itself.

28. Intestinal Toxemia. The condition of the intestinal flora is critical to overall health. Animal products putrefy the colon.

29. Transit time. Wholesome food travels quickly through the "G.I" tract, leaving little time to spoil and incite disease within the body.

30. Fiber deficient. Fiber absorbs unwanted, excess fats; cleans the intestines; provides bulk and aids in peristalsis. Plant food is high in fiber content; meat, poultry and dairy products have none.

31. Body wastes. Food from animals contain their waste, including adrenaline, uric and lactic acid, etc., Before adding ketchup, the biggest contributors to the "flavor profile" of a hamburger are the leftover blood and urine.

32. Excess protein. The average American eats 400% of the RDA for protein. This causes excess nitrogen in the blood that creates a host of long-term health problems.

33. Longevity. To increase ones risk of getting degenerative disease means decreasing ones chance to live a naturally long healthy life. Huzas and other peoples with large centenarian populations maintain lifestyles that are relatively meat free.

34. Well Being. I just feel better since "giving up" meat and becoming vegetarian.


Personal Finances
35. Health care costs. Being healthier on a vegetarian diet means spending less on health care.

36. Food costs. Vegetarian foods tend to cost less than meat based items.


Ethics
37. Love of animals. I love animals as I love myself. I have no desire to kill them or cause them harm.

38. Stance against Factory Farming.. I cannot make a statement against factory farming if I myself eat animals.

39. Respect for Sentient Life. I show gratitude to my Creator(s?) by eating as low on the food chain as possible.

40. "Economic Vote". I show support of the meat industry and the way they operate when I purchase and use their products.

41. Small sacrifice The sacrifice I make is nothing compared to the animals, its life.

42. Natural diet. Our hands, teeth, feet, intestinal tract...even our body chemistry is that of an herbivore.

43. Reciprocity. If I partake in the slaughter of animals, I will have to repay my contribution to that act.

44. "Protecting the Temple". "Whatever affects the body has a corresponding effect on the mind and soul" (E.G. White)

45. I believe in nonviolence. Slaughter isn't.

46. World Peace. There can never be peace among men while men are declaring war on other highly developed life forms.

47. Clear conscience. I know what I'm doing is right. I feel good inside about my decision to remain "meatless"

48. Example. To live this way is to protect the underlying values of those around me.

49. Easy substitutes. There are vegetable based substitutes for every meat product imaginable.
