Predators in the wild kill other animals out of necessity. Without doing so, they wouldn’t survive. On the other hand, we kill other animals by choice. Our bodies don’t need meat at all. In fact, it has been consistently shown that a low-fat vegan diet is a lot healthier than a diet heavy with animal products. Rather, it is a matter of ethics. Is it acceptable to inflict suffering on countless animals for something that isn’t even necessary?
