How Often Should We Eat Meat? TED video!
Most people wouldn’t eat meat if they had to kill and clean the animal themselves which seems to suggest that there is something not quite right about eating it, and when I say “meat” I include poultry and perhaps even fish.
It’s no secret that chickens and chicks are treated in a truly horrible way and that calves are kept in tiny cages, in the dark and not fed the nutrition that the need so that people can enjoy veal.
It’s reckoned that a similar sized piece of land can feed seven to eight times as many vegetarians because you don’t have to feed the animals, so it would seem that as the world population increases that meat will become so expensive that only the rich will be able to afford to eat it on a regular basis.
And MEAT causes more emissions than all forms of transportation combined. Others might be able to treat themselves once a week or so, which would be much healthier anyway.
So please let me know what you think about the ethics of eating animals and the likelihood that the price of meat will soon put it out of most people’s reach. It’s a known that fish will soon be so expensive that only the rich will be able to eat it on a regular basis.
