It doesn’t matter if that ‘food’ is plant or animal we people of the Earth as do as well as all the animals need to eat plants or other animals to stay alive, well at least here on this earth of ours do. I ain’t got a clue how on other planets it really is. I also know that some very small things that are actually in the animal spectrum of life survive on sunlight and oxygen alone, however we don’t.
Therefore, we at, least most of us folk know that the animal side of that food is in reality not necessary, however they do taste good. Also most folk know that for the poor people here on Earth that it would be cheaper to not have the slaughterhouses for them and just feed them the plant side of that equation.
But as I see it in the realm of God and politics there is no difference between eating a hamburger or some frozen carrots and corn or a walnut as all used to be alive and now are food for us to eat.
We only need a proper balance of protein, fat and cholesterol (there ain’t anything else) as well as the proper PH (alkaline/acid) balance in our diet. It really doesn’t matter if that is obtained with eating animals or not. A lot of folk actually know that and go out and hunt ‘wild’ animals to butcher themselves and freeze for later use as those hunting those ‘wild’ animals is actually fun and they also do indeed taste better. However, that is more expensive and time consuming. Me? I just as soon go to the store and buy the food that I want that tastes good. However for me, cutting back on sugar is difficult.
