While the drive for collectivized agriculture was a wide going trend, kulaks needed to be destroyed. Stalins way of doing this was complete taking away all food and grain that they grew. (Doc.6) However the Kulaks didn’t make it easy; they would kill and poison their animals, kill government officials, and collective farm activists. (Doc.5) They would burn their barns and destroyed machinery. By them doing this the Soviets now had a right to kill them, and that was done until there were no Kulaks left.
Carter argues to support or enhance the key issues that eating meat is right based on superiority, self-consciousness, reasoning, moral capability, rights, duties, and sentience. Carter shows that the statement that animals have an interest in their own lives and that we should not treat them like things is a cornerstone in many vegetarian theories. But then he questions this argument in that even the smallest insect has an interest in its own life, but you do not see people actively opposing the killing of all living creatures. He also questions the statement that animals can even make this assertion and are not just living out of basic instinct. And, although a creature may try to stay alive, is it doing so out of the fact it doesn't want to die, or the basic instinct that it has to stay alive.
Conventionally raised cattle have long been fed fats and proteins along with grass and grains; it helps them gain weight more quickly. Unfortunately, much of the fat and protein they’ve been fed in more recent times comes from other animals. This to me is a huge ethical issue; we have gone from letting our cattle naturally eat grass, which they have always done, to changing their diets to something completely different. The FDA still permits cattle to eat feed containing byproducts of pigs, fish, chicken, and horses, among other animals, to promote weight gain. This weight gain is not necessary, it is just desired because cattle can be slaughtered at a younger age and more meat can be produced.
One of those reasons would be that President Roosevelt read the novel “The Jungle” by Upton Sinclair. The book depicts the horrors of the Chicago meat industry. Another reason is that there were many occurrences of food poisoning resulting in death. The Federal Meat Inspection Act contains many purposes that ensure the health of the consumer. It detects and destroys diseased meat before it gets to the buyer.
Different cultures will select food their society is comfortable with or has a plentiful about of. For example in certain Asian cultures Canine is considered to be a delicacy, while in America Dogs are pets not food. Livestock throughout history has always carried a higher price than plants, the more livestock you owned the more wealth you possessed. Now different cultures place different values on livestock. For example Muslims, Hindu, and Jewish cultures find pork to be a taboo, in India they consider the Cow to be a scared animal.
Although many people may not like natural food because it do not have not flavor, natural food does provide enough nutrients, so people can have more energy in their daily life performance. For instance, when I eat homemade food, I have sufficient energy to be able to study, play soccer, and go to work. Therefore, I enjoy more to eat homemade food than eating processing food. Pollen believes Cooking is one of the most important health consequences of buying food from local farmers” (Pollen539) I agree, because I feel so different when I do not eat homemade food. As a result, eating homemade food with natural ingredients, it would help me out to do better of my daily activities.
Some farmers use tranquillisers to keep animals calm. Others routinely use antibiotics so that their animals do not develop infections. When you eat meat you are, inevitably, eating those drugs. In America, over half of all antibiotics are fed to animals and I don't think it is any coincidence that the percentage of staphylococci infections resistant to penicillin went up from 13% in 1960 to 91% in 1988. The healthiness of a vegetarian diet is perhaps shown most dramatically by the fact that lifelong vegetarians visit hospitals 22% less often than meat eaters - and for shorter stays!
Although pesticides and antibiotics are heavily used to keep poultry chickens protected from diseases. Moreover, recent studies have shown that excess of protein intake in a person’s diet leads to the loss of bone calcium as meat eaters generally get for more protein then they actually need or can use. So, in order to live a healthy and long life span one should switch from non-vegetarian to vegetarian or vegan diet. On the other hand, most vegetables are naturally low in fat and calories. Vegetables are important sources of many nutrition including potassium, dietary fibre, folic acid.
This is why vegans usually tend to look very slim and frail. Numerous studies have shown that poor meal planning is a big cause of nutritional deficiencies in vegans (Medicine Net). It is an everyday struggle for a vegan to plan their meals so that they can at least get a sufficient amount of these important nutrients. On the other hand, vegetarians do not have to worry about this problem almost at all. A big reason of this is because a vegetarian can consume dairy products.
Nowadays vegetarianism is promoted widely since people are concerning beauty and healthy. Also, some animal-right defenders are trying to save the animals by not eating them and be a vegetarian. In traditional, human beings are classified as omnivore since we eat meat and vegetables as food to gain energy and nutrition in general. In 20th century, some researches stated that vegetarian has a healthier life and longer life span. However, do vegetarians healthier and have a longer live-span than meat eater?
