Why do so many people eat other animals? It’s because they believe they taste good. There is really no other reason that can be stated as fact with a straight face. Pound to a penny, a well thought out vegan diet will beat out a diet based around eating other animals. There may have been a time in our past where there were evolutionary advantages to scavenging and hunting for meat, however those days are well behind us now. Knowing the damage to our environment created by keeping animals for slaughter, not to mention that meat has been shown to be carcinogenic, the time has come to make a serious effort to transition away from a meat based diet. This is even without the most important reason which is to eliminate the needless torture and huge suffering that we inflict upon our fellow creatures just to sate our taste buds.
