This paper argues that eating a strictly vegetarian, or vegan, diet is far superior to eating animal products.
This paper argues that, all forms of altruism and empathy aside, there is a very simple and selfish reason why people should not eat meat or animal products: it is unhealthy. The author gives evidence that eating meat causes illnesses, such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. The paper points out that meat and other animal products carry diseases, like E. coli and salmonella, and are filled with antibiotics that cause serious problems.
“Dairy products are also detrimental to human health. ?There is no reason to drink cow’s milk at any time in your life. It was designed for calves, it was not designed for humans, and we should all stop drinking it today, this afternoon.? In fact, cow’s milk is the leading cause of food allergies in infants and children, and it is a suspected trigger of juvenile diabetes. It has also been shown that casein, a milk protein, may be linked to autism and schizophrenia in children, because their bodies are unable to properly digest it; 80 percent of children with these diseases showed cast improvement when switched to milk-free diets. Many other common childhood ailments, such as chronic ear infections, asthma, and skin problems like acne could also be eliminated if vegan diets were the norm.”
