Short answer: yes.
Long answer: I’d say far fewer animals are killed in harvesting grain than are slaughtered strictly for human consumption. As someone who gives a toss I prefer to support local certified organic producers who don’t stuff their animals full of hormones and antibiotics, raise them in humane conditions and generally place ethics before profit.
Everything dies, all creatures eat other living things, the majority of deaths are violent and because of another creature’s hunger. That doesn’t mean you can’t make better choices about where your food comes from.[/quote]
Fact: if we only used organic, not modified foods, the planet could only sustain 2/3 of its population.
…If you feel so strongly about organic foods, then go and off roughly two billion people.
If we were not designed to eat meat, then our bodies couldnt handle it. you couldnt feed herbavores meat all day long and expect them to take it well, but we are omnivores by nature.
As for PETA, i wouldnt call them much more than a terrorist organization. they use propaganda, violence, and destruction as a means to support their agenda. They set up their own research to tell people that high protein diets are bad, in an attempt to stop you from eating meat, not to improve your health.
