First of all i agree with the better quality eatingBut humans aren't omnivores?Shouldn't we die if we eat mean then?
I'm not expert on this but I always wonder when people say that humans are omnivores whether they understand what that really means. They take it as a wholesale endorsement to eating vast quantities of meat. Whereas, in reality, it just means we can get away with eating a variety of foods. I'm surprised by your statement since I thought you were a big meat advocate, but yes, I agree with what you say. I'm very sceptical that humans ate a huge amount of meat, particularly in recent history. Meat seems to be rather scarce, a treat, particularly in tribal communities. There is good evidence as well that eating such a quantity of meat is bad for us. Plus, our teeth probably give us an indication of what we should be eating. Incisors cut vegetables, molars grind wholegrain and beans. Canines are vestigial.
If you serve most people offal they wretch at the thought of eating it. So many can't even eat a fish if it's still got it's head on let alone fillet one. As for watching a cow get slaughtered most are too timid to watch. People don't deserve to be called omnivores.
But at the end they still eat meat, people have evolved so their taste buds and eating styles. So it's okay to be wanting a tasty KFC rather than having just boiled chickenThere are people who watch cow get slaughtered and eat themDoes that mean they aren't humans or are they true omnivores?
OkaySo you don't think that eating just veggies will affect food chain?
Do you think it'll be good or bad if we all go veganBecause being vegan only has benifits right?
Its hard to judge.But i guess: No, because the human body is naturally designed to process meat as well as plants, you need to substitute some meat-nutrients (like B-12) with artifical ones.I also can't judge what it would mean for the world, if all of a suddden the entire world would switch over to a vegan lifestyle.I guess the best thing would be to reduce meat (and eggs, honey, milk, cheese,...) consumtion to a minimum, maybe once a week, like we had during the middle ages until the industrial revolution.
I agree with you
I watched a video by a german science youtuber, which basically agreed with the things i said.So basically when switching everyone to vegan, CO2 emissions would increase, thats because many fruits and vegetables require a lot of energy and transportation to grow and reach everyone.Some places can't grow edible vegetables or fruit in the necessary amount, like kenia, so they need meat to feed their people.Also we would waste lots of the plants we don't eat and would loose the fertilization of crops from animal feces and would need to switch to artificial fertilizers.So the verdict by studies from the US and Sweden, is1. Eat only the advised amount of calories.2. Eat according to the advised balanced diet (even though the US advises to eat a lot of dairy products).3. Eat only saisonal and regional products.https://youtu.be/keEKlr2dG-IHere is the Video, i don't know if you can understand it, or if you can enable English subtitles.
I agreeAnatomically we are supposed to be eating meat
More white meat than red meat too.
Ohh is it?Enlighten me
Some vegans might argue that they do suffer while slicing their necks and talking life away
If you see what goes on in slaughter houses, you don't need to be a vegan to realize that. But there are animals without a centralized nervous system (such as clams, mussels and oysters) that lack the capacity to suffer.
Interesting viewBut what about those who got CNS
Well the Cambridge Declaration on Consciousness in non-human animals said that at the very least, birds, other mammals and cephalopods are conscious in the same sense that we are.
Does that mean we shouldn't kill em
I would argue that.
Your point is that we have to kill and eat them right?
Well not necessarily, I mean if you find roadkill and eat it then that wouldn't be the case.
What are we? Scavengers?
No, we're omnivores (although not in the sense most people think, but that's another story) but as long as there's enough plant matter to sustain them, omnivores won't hunt.
Yes you're rightBut there's a reason why omnivores exist in food cycleThey keep in check both the herbivores and carnivorous population If we switch to one of them the other one will dominate us and our existence for example starvation if all become herbivoresThat's what we are
Well most meat we eat isn't harvested from the wild, it's bred in farms so we could just stop breeding them.
Just stopping breeding won't destroy their speciesYeah for some years their population will be lessBut with time they'll dominate for sureAs we know they reproduce exponentiallyWhich will further feed on limited plant resources (our resources) and threat to our existence
If we stop harvesting wild meat there will be an initial spike but then other predators will keep the population in check. Us not eating domestic animals won't cause their population to breed out of control (if that was the case we'd be up to our necks in cats and dogs).
About cats and dogs they're not herbivores they rely on meat and they've co evolved with humans that's why they don't pose a threatAnd about carnivores keeping the population in checkWould you allow carnivores to roam around in your farms while you're weak and starving species
Lol those mob lynchers kill you if you eat cow or buffalo.
I don't understandHow
