If she was trying to make an argument on why everyone should be eating meat, she should have included some examples. She could have added the health benefits of eating meat, the nutrients found in meat that plants do not provide, how meat achieves muscle growth and repair them and just add more solid information for her readers to reflect on. Just ending the article with how much she craves meat and how her life wouldn’t have been the same without it, doesn’t make her readers feel the same way. I care about this article because meat is something that my family and I eat every so often. But not many people really think where their meat is coming from.
“In 2016, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) estimated that Americans ate an average of 54.3 pounds of beef, 92.1 pounds of chicken, and 50.4 pounds of pork, per person, per year” (Vegetarianism). Food production counts for only one of the many injustices animals face daily. Although they have been proven emotionally intelligent, mankind views these entities as subservient and continue to harm them. People around the world have created organizations that work to ameliorate the treatment of animals. As the animal rights movement nobly fights to improve the conditions of these living creatures, daily human activities and the moral values of some prolong the acceptance of animal equality.
Pollan states “The chicken feed not only feeds the broilers but, transformed into chicken crap, feeds the grass that feeds the cows that, as I was about to see, feeds the pigs and the laying hens” (Pollan 345). This chain of profit very beneficial to farms because overall they spend much less money and have more money to spend elsewhere. There 's
Their premium dry dog food follows their "biologically appropriate" philosophy of nutrition. The reason the top dog food Orijen is free of grains is because, according to veterinarians, the high carbohydrate content of grains leads to obesity and other common health problems in dogs. Your canine's digestive system was not made to digest most types of grains. The major commercial companies began adding grain to their pet foods to increase their profits and save money.

Over 56 billion animals are killed every day for animal testing and meat. Some people call themselves “animal lovers”, but how could they be, when they’re part of their suffering? But if you love and want to help animals, it really does benefit being vegan. There is no difference between a cow and a dog. The only difference is your perspective.
In the passage “On Eating Roadkill”, Buhler makes effective use of ethos, pathos, and logos to get his argument across. In the passage, Buhler gives plenty of facts pertaining information on why we should eat roadkill, but in many people 's cases they would never do such a thing. Animals are being killed at a very high rate when it comes to non hunting issues, therefore you could argue a fact that eating roadkill would help the community by saving the amount of money people spend on groceries. Buhler also states that the meat that will come from the roadkill animals will be more healthy for vegans because there is nothing extra put on the meat for better taste. Although the thought of someone getting sick comes to mind for the most part if you 're saving money and eating more healthy how can you not be happy?

Back in the day, a while after World War II, industrial agriculture was applauded as a technological success that permitted an ever growing population to practically feed themselves. Now, many farmers and scientists see it as a blind alley, rather made for factory work. The way we are going in a population that is constantly
Animal waste runoffs or feedlots are farms that specialize in cattle or hogs. These animals are stayed in a very small area of land and they are raised on hormones and grains that make them big and fat for slaughter. Feedlots help provide a lot of protein in America but feedlots contain a lot of the animals poop and other bad substances that can pollute the air and the water with their runoff. Pros of having feedlots is that they produce meat that satisfies U.S. consumers, they’re efficient, and cheap. Cons of having feedlots is that manure contains nitrogen and phosphorus; if not managed properly, they can pollute the nearby lakes,streams,rivers, or oceans, and antibiotic use increases genetic resistance to bacteria in the human body.
You can still get your essential proteins through a combination of nuts and beans. If you cannot go on a vegan diet, you can still help by reducing the consumption of meat. Our diet is heavily based on meat, but you need only 2-3 servings of meat per day. Increasing the portion of fruits and vegetables you eat is more beneficial to your health.
