If you’ve eaten meat all your life, it may be hard to think of not eating meat again. We’ve been conditioned to eat meat at least once a day, and many people eat far more meat than that. But where is all this meat coming from and what is it costing our land, our cities, and our bodies to keep up with demand?

If you’ve eaten meat all your life, it may be hard to think of not eating meat again. We’ve been conditioned to eat meat at least once a day, and many people eat far more meat than that. But where is all this meat coming from and what is it costing our land, our cities, and our bodies to keep up with demand?

Veganism is not just a trend for the hippies or people who are trying to lose weight. While it is true that these groups are commonly vegetarian at the least, there are some real benefits to cutting out, or even just cutting down on, meat and animal products.

From the environment, to animal activism and more conscious eating, people are starting to wisen up to the harmful effects a meat-based diet has across the board. With popular documentaries like Food, Inc. and Forks Over Knives available on Netflix, diet consciousness is spreading like wildfire and is a real topic of discussion.

Recently, Google CEO Eric Schmidt predicted that America may be on the cusp of a plant-based revolution. Because the raising, slaughtering and delivering of meat to Americans is very cost inefficient and drastically contributes to the rise of greenhouse gasses, especially cattle farming, he is campaigning for a plant-based America. But what he is proposing is actually quite unnatural.

Google’s parent company, Alphabet, is working on creating synthetic plant-based proteins to help ease the strain the meat industry has on our planet. While I don’t agree with mutant greens, I do think the idea of eating more plants would truly solve many of the problems we now face, as a nation becoming more conscious about what we put in our bodies and where it came from.

Red meat tends to slow down digestion and get clogged in the intestines. This can cause serious health issues because the natural flow of the body is hindered and cannot excrete waste as efficiently as it could without the added stress of digesting meat. Losing weight while eating red meat is made much more difficult and missing out on the nutrients from vegetables is detrimental to our health. Meat is also much more expensive in comparison to vegetables and has a much larger carbon footprint from farm-to-table.

We are living through interesting times to say the least and while many are trying to hang on to “the good ‘ol days”, more are waking up to the realization that the way we are living is not sustainable for our health, our planet or our pockets.

And if The Terminator says to stop eating meat, I think it’s wise to listen!
