    Because when you eat meat you are eating a dead animal, a carcass, you are chewing up dead muscle and fat and swallowing it & digesting it.

    You may aswell go and eat roadkill.

    They also feel scared, they feel pain, they cry out when they're hurt too. They are living breathing beings with beating hearts. They feel attachment. They feel the need to look after their young.

    its also very enlightening as to what goes on behing closed doors.

    to the person who lols at ppl who dont "understand the circle of life" vitamin b-12 is a bacteria found in soil that would be in the plants we eat if we didnt scew that up with pestisides. did you think it was some migical vitamin that is only found on cows? the cows get it from the plants, and I choose not to take it from the coww through cruelty and bloodshed

    I have to lol at people like emilie who clearly do not understand the circle of life.

    But getting to the point, it's definitely healthier for people to not eat so much meat. However, your body cannot function properly without vitamin B12, which is only naturally found in meat, dairy or eggs. You must either include these, or take supplements.

    Cue the thumbs down from militant vegans.

    Because you want to. No one can tell you why you should do it. You have to make that decision.

    you shouldnt. you were given canines for a reason, for meat. plus, for all the bad rap cholesterol is given, it actually is necessary for survival. plus it is what makes sex hormones, and its only in animals.
