There is a popular tee shirt out there that says “Meat is Murder.” The human mouth has teeth in it that are designed for cutting and tearing meat. The human body is very able to process meat and meat provides a good source of vitamins, minerals and protein that the body needs. That says to me that the human was designed to eat meat.
Part of the American diet has been both domestic and wild animals since before the founding of the Republic. It is important to our standard of living that we continue to insure that ranching says a profitable and desirable occupation. One of ways to do that is to insure that we don’t use too much of our farmland to grow crops that should go for animal feed as fuel.
Corn has been grown for animal feed for centuries but in recent years farmers have been lured into growing corn for fuel. Making fuel from growing things is a good idea but it should not be at the expense of increased prices for food. Waste greens and plants grown in areas not presently under cultivation for food are what should be using rather than human and animal food crops; that’s the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
