Global meat consumption has increased from under 50 million tons annually to over 200 million tons in the last 50 years. The amount of animal manure produced in the U.S. is 130 times greater than the amount of human waste. This is causing more environmental and health problems than ever seen before. Here are 15 good reasons to stop eating meat (or at least cut down):

Health Reasons:

1. Lower risk of cancer. The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine has reported that vegetarians are less likely to get cancer by 25 to 50 percent.

2. Lower risk of heart disease. Researchers Dr. Dean Ornish and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn have a program that includes a vegetarian diet and is currently one of the few programs that has been proven to reverse heart disease. A vegetarian diet reduces cholesterol.

3. Lower risk of osteoporosis. Studies have shown that too much protein in our diet causes loss of bone calcium. Meat eaters generally get far more protein than they need or can use.

Many people give money to charities believing their money will be used to help people in need. They don't always realize that their money may instead be used to fund testing on animals. While some people believe animal testing is necessary, there are now many humane ways to learn about disease and to test medical treatments, methods that are actually more effective than testing on animals and that do not cause pain and death to innocent creatures.
Here are just a few of the charities that currently fund testing on animals. If you object to testing on animals, let these charities know you cannot support them until they stop harming and killing animals. Find other, kinder charities to support instead.

American Heart Association

The American Heart Association has funded studies to determine the effects of second hand smoke on chickens, forcing the birds to breathe concentrated cigarette smoke for extended periods of time. One has to question the value of such studies, since the harmful effects of second hand smoke on humans have been well established. The American Heart Association has helped fund numerous other cruel studies, including studies...

I'm probably going to get a lot of hate for this article. I do support animal rights just as much as everyone else on this club, though people with probably tell me otherwise. I'm just saying--you don't have to be vegetarian to love animals!


So, I've seen a lot of people posting on here about being vegetarian, and how it's wrong to eat meat. They say that it hurts animals to eat meat. They compare it to cannibalism.
These things they say; they're not true.
To say it's wrong to eat meat is ridiculous. We have canine teeth. Canine teeth are for eating meat, not plants. We wouldn't have canine teeth if we weren't supposed to eat meat.
Besides, plenty of animals eat meat. What about wolves? Should wolves stop eating meat just to save other animals? Of course not! So why should we? We're animals too, you know!
I'm not saying we should just eat whatever, though. If an animal is endangered, don't eat it! But deer? Rabbits? Cow? There's an abundance of these! In fact, if everyone stopped eating deer, our planet would probably be overrun with them. The deer would eat all the vegetation, leaving none for any other animals, nor for...
