Flesh and blood
If animals are animals, and animals have brains, then we are no more than cannibals that refuse to see the pain.
The meat you eat is wrapped up neat; you didn't see it bleed. And what you kill does not fulfill your dietary needs.
Take a look from this direction, save yourself the indigestion. Our guts are geared to vegetation, and its healthier as well. Open your eyes and face the facts.
Meat costs a lot and gives you heart attacks, which kills you. Now, a lot of people think (quite wrongly) that vegetation lacks vitamin B12.
If you really think that's going to make you ill, then buy a bottle of vitamin pills!
You could be more healthy, maybe it doesn't really bother you, but can your conscience bear the strain of all the pain that makes your food?
You could feed a lot of needy people with the grain they feed to cows, but can you comprehend the end results or can you not allow yourself to break the old tradition, the false conception of nutrition?
"Well they all eat meat on television", except those little starving children.
Would you ever eat the meat from another human being? Flesh and blood is animal, is you and me. Animal is suffering.
