Abstract

A world without meat seems like such a distant idea. What about a world with meat produced in labs? Or a world or meat like products? A plant-based world doesn't mean no more burgers, it just means no burgers produced in ways that harm humanity. This essay argues that by eliminating the consumption and production of meat globally, humanity can expand lifespans and prevent future catastrophic natural disasters. The negative effects of meat production are the greenhouse gases emitted, land usage and deforestation, the water wasted, the food used for livestock that could be used for human consumption. Without meat we would live in a world of limited hunger, limited thirst, and limited antibiotic resistance. A world with heart healthy individuals and reduction of infectious diseases. As a practicing vegetarian, I have constantly been told and judged for what I eat and why I avoid meats. Our society has been brainwashed into this way of thinking that meat is the superior food, but what I have learned over the past few years of defending myself, is that this is simply not the truth. For this essay I have decided to compile all my findings and research on the meat industry and meat consumption to bring to the forefront of my readers minds. So next time someone tries to tell me I’m wrong maybe I’ll send them a link to this essay.

Keywords: plant-based, meat production, meat industry, vegan, vegetarian, livestock, climate change, emissions, antibiotic resistance, swine flu.
