Cow, horse, pig, buffalo, deer, what’s the difference?
They are all mammals and eating them causes cancer and disease because we share DNA with them. You can use pig body parts in humans, so eating a pig is nothing but cannablism.
Not me, I figured it out long ago.
I don’t eat dead rotting mammal flesh.

This article suggests that young people don’t want to eat the bloody and violent meat that their parents and grandparents ate, and that they are consuming junk nowadays. I’m not sure that’s an accurate assumption (about the junk). Yes, we do have fast food, but most of the young folks I know are much more aware today of the cruelty inherent in the production of meat and the dangers to health when ingesting it. I think today’s youth are much better informed and certainly more aware of animal welfare. Reading about some of the people in this article made me nauseous. Fortunately, they are becoming a minority and both humans and animals will benefit from the current paradigm shift away from meat.
