I don't like meat. I just don't like the taste of it. But I force myself to eat it because it seems a sensible thing to do, and because humans are naturally omnivores.
I did hear an interesting radio interview a few weeks back, with an expert who opined that we eat much, more, more meat than humans did even a hundred years ago. Meat has always been expensive, but now that everyone is middle-class and has a much better income, we can afford it much more easily. In the past, only the rich could afford to buy and eat meat in the way we all do today. A valid point.
thing is they are changing things all the time, first banana's weren't very healthy, then suddenly it appeared they are very healthy, now orange juice is bad for you, you have to eat biological, avoid bread and potatoes, avoid fat, avoid sugar, avoid salt, etc etc. In the Netherlands we had a scandal, microwave lasagna was mostly filled with horsemeat, what a shocker. Well, I don't care. It tasted good. That I'm paying a few cents to much because cow's meat is more expensive than horsemeat? Well, I know the most of my money goes to the government trough taxes etc.
When you listen to all they say, you'd better start being an Anorexia Nervosa victim. But all these advises, eat this, eat that, don't eat this, don't eat that, kiss my arse. It's causing stress, and stress is very unhealthy.
That we are eating to much meat? I doubt it, and it isn't the problem. The problem is overpopulation on this world and all the problems coming along. Being a vegetarian, okay, but how much space do you need for your daily vegetables? And how much space does a cow, goat, sheep, horse, dog, chicken etc need including their food.
I think that is the main reason why wars and natural disasters are very necessary for us, to slow down the overpopulation. But still the worldpopulation is growing. And every new born needs the food. So people should take their responsibility, only 1 child in each couple for 50 years from now, then the worldpopulation will be back to maybe 10.000.000.000, now it's 17.000.000.000. So everybody getting more than one child is responsible for the world's biggest disaster.
Now they are fighting over oil and religion, but within 100 years they're fighting for food.
Yes I enjoy meat...there is a study I read that said vegetables can also feel pain and actually scream when you bite into them....I would rather eat dead meat than gorge a vegetable alive...so if you look at it like that...there is nothing you can eat that you aren't harming in some way.....
