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?

Introduction I have always been interested in vegetarianism and reasons for it since I live in a country where meat is consumed vastly and I`m worried about it.
