Eating animals sounds pretty weird, doesn't it? Eating meat is more likely to fit. But the point is: meat are dead animals.
It's not a requirement to eat animals, we just choose to do it, so it becomes a MORAL CHOICE. A moral choice that is having a huge impact on the planet, using up resources and destroying the biosphere.— James Cameron
We've always eaten animals!
Yeah sure, that we have. Eating animals ensured the surviving of the human race. I'm greatful that my ancestors have eaten meat, because if they would not have, I would not be here today.
But that is exactly the point. I am HERE TODAY. And I'm glad to say that I am able to choose not to eat animals. In most parts of the world people have the luxury of a choice. I'm sure you have too. I don't need to eat animals. And neither do you. Shouldn't we be happier that we are so rich that we don't even have to eat meat?
We are not able to justify consuming meat. It is scientifically proven that a vegetarian diet is ecologically, ethically, sociopolitically and medically the best form of eating. We cannot do this much longer. It is time to see how we destroy our planet and ourselves with our daily consume. But it is not only time to see and to realize, but to act and to change how things are.
Time to change?
Yes, it is time to change! Obviously it is not possible for the whole world to go vegetarian. But here we are not talking about the inuits who are living in the far north and are only able to survive by fishing. We are not talking about the worst case scenario. We are talking about you and me. We are talking about us. For us it is not only possible to change what we eat. It is also necessary!
Start on your own plate
We are not evil. We know what is considered right and what wrong. We always try to act the right way and to do good. So how are we so miserably failing when it comes to our eating choices? I belive that people are just not aware of the impact they do and can have. We should truly see the negative impact that comes from eating animals. But more importantly we should realize how our choices lead to improvement. Three times a day we have a choice to make. Three times a day we are able to make a difference in the world just by choosing not to eat meat.
You and I and everyone else we are not just one in 7 billions we can literally change the world and it is so easy to start on our own plates...
