Actually, most people could barely afford any meat at all until fairly recently. Meat was more of a weekly thing before the 1950s.

I should have clarified that i was talking about pre civilization. We had to pay a certain price for civilization .

That is right. Before the invention of agriculture the people ate meat and what fruits, berries and mushrooms they found. So mostly meat-based. They lived healthier (life expectancy was going down with agriculture at first), worked less and had no interest in owning patches of land and therefore were less fighting and war. The only upside to the invention of agriculture was, that it could support more people. So the agricultural societies outcompeted the former hunting-societies over time.

I try to watch how much meat I eat. Not actively bring vegetarian or vegan, I'm just aware the our bodies didn't evolve to eat meat regularly: it was a once or twice a month all-meat meal, followed by nuts, berries, and fruit.

At the same time, we didn't evolve to forgo meat.

To put things in perspective, around 9 billion chickens are killed in the US alone every year...



They can stopped eating meat for all they care, I'll keep doing it.

Okay, so less controlled farmed animals which have population control are eaten. Well done.

Let me know when we are not longer over fishing and killing sharks for a soup which doesn't even need them.



Hmm, pie.

With meat you mean bovine meat, or any kind of meat (like chicken, fish, etc.)? 

PS: I'm sorry, english is not my first language so it's confusing sometimes. xD

Fish meat is practically a veggie so it doesn't count. 

Only for hypocrites



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Does that mean lower prices though? Because you'd think less demand would mean lower prices. There's gotta be some upside to vegetarians... right?

If meat production would go smaller scale due to stricter animal right laws, then prices will go up.

Don't they toss the shark back in the ocean after cutting it's fin off too? What a bunch of idiots! Shark is like THE best tasting fish in the ocean, why would they throw that away? I love shark steak!

Know quite a few vegetarians and vegans (not surprising when you're in a Literature and Languages faculty). I've been vegetarian for about a year, but that didn't work out too well. I'm too much of a Burgundian to completely renounce meat.

On the other hand, it would be healthy and good if we all ate less meat. It's one thing to eat meat as part of your main course multiple times a week, but eating meat at breakfast and interbetween as well is actually way too much (even though I still do so too from time to time).

If laws concerning animal welfare and meat production would be stricter, meat would be more expensive, but also much higher quality.

And finaly, industrial scale meat production is enourmously taxing for the enviroment.
