Eating meat, Genetics, DNA and chemistry show us that it is all the same thing. Just a distant relative. Alot of creatures eat meat so that is not the argument. For humans eating meat is a detriment to their health and the health of the planet. We simply should not eat meat because it is illogical to do so.
Eating a cow or a pig is accepted, yet eating a puppy of cat is barbaric. They are both the same thing. As Humans we have no more of a right to take the life of any animal or any other human for our own selfish benefit.
