    Deberian dar beneficios a los restaurantes vegetarianos como menos impuestos porque la verdad es mas sabroso que comer carne que te produce malestar y mal sabor de boca.

    I'm not a big meat eater, I have a balanced diet and like to eat pretty much anything. Rarely eat read meat, mostly eat chicken and eggs. This is very good info and stats, but it's very hard to switch to a vegan or vegeterian diet, not because of the taste, I could live without the taste of meat or diary or eggs or fish, but I would have to completely change my lifestyle and spend a lot more money. Individual change is good, but these numbers are so big that I don't think it makes much of a difference in the short term. It'd be better to try and raise the standards and regulations for farms and industries to treat the animals better. I'd honestly prefer if animal products were more of a privileged food, so people would appreciate it and not waste it so much, and eat less of it, because people care more about what they spend than what these animals go through. Same goes for industries, if the price is higher, less people buy, less animals have to die in horrible ways and high number. There must be a way that industries can make the same money or not lose much, but also people are willing to spend a little bit more money for their food, so everything is balanced and the animals and our environment can enjoy the benfits

    meat really doesn't taste that good smh.. go eat some fucking fruit that shit tastes amazing. weird hard headed humans I do not get it. eating something that's dead to stay alive how is that logical to you? just cause the animals can't talk doesn't mean they're feelings aren't valid or aren't just as important as yours. you know we really don't need to eat animals anymore its 2019 no excuse.

    I'm 100% carnivore and I actually eat less meat as a result due to 100% ditching of processed meats. I use zero plastic packagings because my butcher wraps it in wax paper. I eat red meat, fat, pork rind, eggs, cheese. I've lost 14 pounds in three weeks without exercise, I never feel hungry, I'm never tired, I'm never ill. I have removed 100% of the waste from all of the standard diet products that are out there, simply by not eating them. Your innovative Vegan food packaging ends up in landfill, the oceans and uses petroleum to produce the plastic.How many millions of plastic shrink wraps cover your veg? How much of your health is lost to eating grains which are slowly toxic to the human body? How are you going to get milk if we don't have the cows? How are you going to get milk for children's bones to develop?... use soy milk? Nope, that has an effect on male hormonal development. Get it from Broccoli?... How are you going to make a kid eat piles of broccoli to make up for the lost milk?Questions are a real pain in the arse, aren't they? Fuck this video. Climate Change is not proven anyway. There is no such thing as an average global temperature. It is impossible to calculate. It is like getting a telephone directory and working out the average telephone number. Completely pointless. Eat meat and greens kids, or just meat if you want optimal health.

    I stopped eating meat all together, animals are my friends, i dont eat friends, period. Plus, eating meat seems a bit disgusting. And it's just cruel. I dont want any part of it, dont want to support the meat lobby anymore. BTW, mcdonalds now has vegan burgers, burger king is following in that direction, so go and buy those meat free products and support the meat free trend and help end the cruelty to animals from the meat lobby. Thanks :)

    That is the most disgusting statistic I've ever heard. Average American throws away an entire pound of food every day. I don't even eat a pound of food each day what the fuck!

    Oh no, I'm so disappointed in you guys. I love your videos but when you said people love their burgers, steaks, and other meats you should have dug deeper. I've never met a single person in my life who would eat raw meat over raw vegetables. We don't favor meat, we are drawn to all the artificial flavoring that we add to it with our butter, and salt, and marinees, and sauces. Breading and deep frying are chicken, dressing up our ground beef between fruits vegetables and a bun lathered in mayo, bbq sauce, tomato ketchup, mustard, is not proof that humans genetically favor meat. Not one bit. I mean seriously is there anything we don't try to mask the flavor of meat with? I am 100% confident we only eat meat because corporations have dressed it up with a thousand other artificial flavors. Reason being, it is the cheapest product on the planet, and, we've been brainwashed into thinking it's a diet requirement... Prophet Prophet prophet, capitalist country yada yada
