I still believe humans are omnivorous for the obvious reason of not lowering our IQ.

Re: Ban non-vegan foods.




Vegan food will become the norm in future, and the world population will turn vegatarian, both by necessity and by choice.
Breeding animals to feed humans uses a lot of land. The same land could be better used growing crops to feed more people.
There will come a time when people will realise that to feed the world, eating animals is wasteful, and they will switch to being vegetarian instead.
The price of meat will increase to become a costy luxury, whilst more people will look into animal welfare and campaign against meat eating.
Substitutes to meat will be found to provide us with the proteines we need. Man will find a synthetic replacement for leather too, and hunting will be considered barbarous.
Mentalities will change with future generations: compassions for animals, ecological concerns,  health priorities will lead society to progressively abandon meat and become vegetarian. It's for the best !!!

Re: Ban non-vegan foods.




There really is no good trying to ban people from eating meat... I'm still going to hunt, farm, and fish. If you want to go eat vegan, please do so in the Liberal states. Also, just a heads up, don't use Green Peace as a reputable source.

Above is the list of the top ten causes of death in the USA. Less people would die if everyone was vegan. As for pigs and humans getting married, I don't get your drift.

As for cows ransacking shops, the cows would be released into the wild. How often do you see a wild animal ransack a shop?

No they shouldn't. Animals should be there for eating and humans get to live. What happens if we ban non-vegan foods people would die? Pigs and humans getting married? Allowing cows to ransack shops? That is their nature and that is what they are going to do.

@crossel 


Maybe but animals shouldn't come first in front of humans. I just illogical. Plus there have been many cases of which people have died dead because they became vegan or vegetarian.

How is this illogical to put humans first? I contend that humans and animals should be treated as equals.

As for people dying because they became vegetarian, I find that high unlikely. Vegan is more believable because of lack of b-12. Yet, with a little care and b-12 supplements a vegan can be healthy. Below in the first link are some vegetarian celebrities and some testimonies from lay people in the 2nd.

Re: Ban non-vegan foods.




"Animals do not need rights. The reason GOD made animals are to be eaten or to kept as pets not to let overpopulated. Eventually they will get out of control and humans will be powerless to stop them. That is what you should think about before you become vegan. "

Which religion? There are at least twenty major religions in the world. As for overpopulation, there are natural predators and catch, neuter, and release programs.

Re: Ban non-vegan foods.




Sure you could go on and on about how it is illogical to eat non-vegan foods but it is the persons decision to eat non-vegan foods. I believe this is a natural right." crossel

I disagree. There are many cultures in which animals have rights. By killing an animal you are trampling the animal's rights. You are also buying into the humans are the master species complex. That humans are superior to all other animals, and therefore can do whatever they want to animals.

Look it is the people's right to eat animal products. If I want to eat pork you better believe I am going to eat pork. If I want to eat a hot dog I am going to eat a hot dog. Sure you could go on and on about how it is illogical to eat non-vegan foods but it is the persons decision to eat non-vegan foods. I believe this is a natural right.

@Vegan 

Outline
I. Intro
II. Animal sentience
III. Suffering
IV. Health
V. Environment
VI. World Hunger
VII. Summary
VIII. Links

I. Intro

       Vegan is the best choice. Vegan avoids animal cruelty, has many health benefits, saves the environment, and mitigates world hunger.

II. Animal sentience

    Animals are sentient beings. "Non-human animals, including all mammals and birds, and many other creatures, including octopuses, also possess these neurological substrates.""[1].

"A Universal Declaration on Animal Sentience: Animal sentience is a well-established fact " [2].

      Since animals are sentient it is immoral to cause them suffering. Therefore, non-vegan foods should be banned worldwide.

III. Suffering

Animals surely suffer. Free-range farming is not cruelty free. Egg-production and milk production are extremely cruel. ""Free-Range" Hen

• Debeaked with a hot bloody blade at one day old with no anesthetic.

• Force molted (intentionally starved to shock the body into another laying cycle).

• Violently packed into a semi and trucked hundreds of miles to an agonizing slaughter when considered "spent" (unable to keep laying eggs at a fast enough pace).

• Denied the opportunity to live a natural life in truly humane care.

• All of her brothers (roosters) are brutally killed as baby chicks simply because they can't lay eggs." [3].

"After just 4 to 6 years, dairy cows are "spent" from being forced to continuously produce milk. Often weak and ill, they endure transport to auction and slaughter, both of which are traumatic for these gentle animals. If allowed to exist free of exploitation and slaughter, cows can live 25 years or more.
" [4].


Humans have not found a way to reliable kill each other yet, and human life is considered more valuable by many. "Lethal injection can cause excruciating pain. Since the first lethal injection on December 7, 1982, over 1,000 prisoners in the USA have been executed by this method and it has all but replaced other methods of execution."[5].

IV. Health

Plant foods contain antioxidants, fiber, and phytonutrients. Animal products have too much fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, and animal protein. Animal protein is detrimental to human healthy because of the increase in IGF-1, insulin like growth factor one. IGF-1 increase risk for cancer.

"For years we didn't know why eating a plant-based diet appeared to so dramatically improve cancer defenses within just a matter of weeks. But researchers recently figured it out: eating healthy lowers the level of the cancer promoting growth hormone IGF-1. This saga was detailed in my last four blog posts:"[6]

V. Environment

"Many fishing practices are extremely destructive to delicate habitats - particularly vital fish breeding grounds like coral reefs and seagrass meadows." [7].

"The cattle sector in the Brazilian Amazon is the largest driver of deforestation in the world, responsible for one in every eight hectares destroyed globally. Efforts to halt global deforestation emissions must tackle this sector. " [8].

VI. World Hunger

Animal products are less efficient. The extra food freed from these inefficient foods could fed hungry humans.

"Meat is less efficient because we eat the animal that eats the grain instead of eating the grain ourselves. It takes about 15 pounds of feed to make 1 pound of beef, 6 pounds of feed for 1 pound of pork and 5 pounds of feed for 1 pound of chicken, the Department of Agriculture estimates. For catfish, it's about 2 pounds of feed per pound of fish." [9].

"The environmental comparison of cheese varieties made from cow milk and directly from lupine and the evaluation of energy inputs in fish protein and vegetable protein also suggest an environmental advantage for vegetarian food. " [10].

VII. Summary

In summary, there is no valid reason to continue to eat animal products. Consuming vegan foods cause less animal suffering, are healthier, save the environment, and help mitigate world hunger. Non-vegan foods should be banned worldwide.
