To the Editor: Mrs. Lennon’s article, “Why Vegetarians Are Eating Meat” (Aug, 2007) was very persuasive. However, to me it was more persuasive in terms of whether or not people should change from eating “conventionally raised” to “humanely raised” and “sustainable” meat rather than how it’s okay for vegetarians to eat meat as long as it was raised in an “ethical” way. No one should be forced to be a meat eater or a vegetarian but I feel that their options should be for the right reasons thus I agree with Ms. Katzen’s quote saying, “For people who are against eating meat because it's wrong or offensive to eat animals, even the cleanest grass-fed beef won't be good enough”. I do not believe that eating meat is ethically better than being vegetarian.
Today in the first world countries, the problem is not money meat is cheap these days. People chose to be Vegetarian, yet vegetarian food is not necessarily cheap as you often have to go to special stores. Many delicacies around the world have different varieties of meat in them and if someone is a traveler they are most likely to find better meals with meat included. As Westonaprice stated, “all traditional cultures consume some sort of animal protein and fat from fish and other seafood; water and land fowl; land animals; eggs; milk and milk products; reptiles; and insects.” (westonaprice 2) This means that all civilizations have survived off animal products making the dishes that originate from a region much more likely to contain some sort of animal product. Second, meat is not as harmful as many people believe.
If we didn’t have fast food in the present days, we would be vegetarians or we would all have extreme thin bodies because we didn’t eat food that contains a big amount of carbohydrates. Fast food was made for a purpose and it’s for people who work in offices and are in a hurry to their job during their break. So they grab a meal and make their way quick back to their seats. There have been debates and scientific researches over whether fast food is the main cause of obesity and that it should be blamed for its cause. Mostly people agree with the part of it being the biggest problem for our health and some disagree.

It allows us to take out the older bigger bucks to allow the younger ones to grow and procreate. Some people think that our role in the ecosystem is just for fun and pointless. This is completely on the contrary as we provide herd management, meat for the less fortunate and leather for veterans and craft makers to make products such as gloves, apparel, and other goods. All while keeping herd management at bay. So, we actually play a very important role that others may not
The act of slaughtering an animal would seem cruel enough, no? 90 percent of our population consumes meat are aware of the fact that it comes from an animal that has short lived their lives due to our dietary practices. Vegetarians are not victims to this meat paradox because of their moral concern for animals.
Granted, the day came when they were both with their babysitter enjoying a delicious plate of chicken with carrot that his grandmother had prepared. However, Jonathan was amazed that his babysitter was not eating this extravagant plate. Did she not like chicken? he wondered. So, he finally asked her why she wasn’t eating the chicken with his brother and himself.
Effects of Fast Food Junk food can be your last food. Junk food is the worst foe of human health, and it begins when people start advertising about fast food, and how delicious it is. Likewise, when people start talking about fast food, and how it is better than food that prepared at home. Many people are addicted to fast food because it is more delicious, convenient, and faster. However, these days people think that junk food may not affect their lives and their health.
Statements such as "why worry about animals when so many people die from malaria, violence and war?" are not quite right. Although in his book, the author mostly worried about the suffering of animals, which in itself is a controversial point, it also affects a very important for mankind issue - a farm on which the animals have been growing. In unsanitary conditions many diseases can be developed, sequentially these conditions on the farms increase the likelihood of unintended human health consequences. The problem of global warming, which is also contributed by factory farming affects already now all people, despite the fact you eat meat or not.
The amount of non-frozen freshwater in the world is a miniscule 0.3%, yet great amounts of it go to watering cattle. Instead of going to water some of the driest parts of the United States, such as southern California, Nevada, and Arizona, to provide municipal water, it goes to cattle. Our country continually faces devastating droughts that force people to live off strict water rations that can destroy crops, leading to economic ruin. America’s breadbasket should not be faced with water insecurity due to cattle farming. Cattle also need large tracts of land to graze which they leave barren and prone to erosion.
After all some people may pick Industrial food chain because it cheaper and it quickly made .There are many health problem cause by eating Industrial food chain.Which medical checkup cost a lot.

If you are choosing to eat vegetarian and you are not doing it in the right way, the health risk that your lifestyle is imposing is very high. If you become vegetarian, you have to make sure to incorporate a lot of different sources of protein and nutrients since you aren’t getting that from meat. Unlike most meat consumers, you can’t eat whatever you want as a vegetarian because you have to ensure that your body is getting enough nutrients (Health). But why is eating meat really so much healthier for you? Our bodies are simply designed for meat consumption.
Vegetarians aren 't the only ones who push their beliefs onto other people. Meat eaters do it too; although, they are not a persuasive and aggressive. The 1998 “Where’s The Beef?”article by Alan Herscovici takes a lighter approach to show audiences eating meat is not as harmful as it is perceived. Herscovici main argument is that eating meat is more beneficial than harmful. He starts and ends the article as if he were telling a story at a family barbeque, and carries that humor throughout the article.
I see a few areas where I could make some small changes that would help improve my diet and help reduce my risk to a lifestyle disease. For example while we buy lean ground beef if we switched and purchased turkey ground again this would be a better food choice. When I say again it is because my husband and I used to rarely eat red meat and then his parents moved in with us a couple of years ago and they really don’t care for chicken and they absolutely will not eat it more than about once or twice a week. They also do majority of the cooking since my husband and I both work. I have tried a few times to get more chicken or ground turkey added back in our diet and so far I haven’t been able to succeed.
The foods that you eat are vital for your success on the Paleo diet. If you aren 't eating a meal plan that is high in protein is and focused on clean foods then you will never experience the complete results of following a paleo meal plan. Still, this diet is hinged on you 'eating like a caveman ', denoting that you need to consume items that hail from the earth in a purest state. For example, instead of eating an egg sandwich for breakfast, you would just consume the egg. Rather than adding milk to your coffee, you can drink it black, and instead of a steak and cheese sandwich you should only enjoy the meat.
