Christine Cuomo spoke about many interesting topics on what we ought to eat. She presented a very good argument on how eating meet is what we should no be eating and that rather more healthier foods such as fruits and vegetables are better for us in several ways and for many reasons. Christine is an ethics professor at the University of Cincinnati and during here presentation she made arguments that were somewhat controversial about what people ought to eat and what they shouldn't ought to eat; and why. Even though some of here argument were controversial she seemed to put her perspective in very understandable ways that even those against her position would still enjoy hearing what she has to say. She is a vegetarian but is not one to force the idea on you, and she still eats cheese and drink milk.
She talks about how animals are slaughtered for food and its not fair to them. She presents an argument on how butchers treat animals horribly and even though they are a source for our food they is no reason for animal brutality. During the presentation there was a picture of a high pile of pigs slaughtered. The picture was quite g rossum and didn't need much words to tell the story. Animals are just treated very violently as if they have no type of feeling for pain. This is not right.
Personally I would like to see animals treated better before they are slaughtered because they have feelings of pain just as we do. I wish more people, including myself, can have the will power to stop eating meet to send a message to their butchers and factories that are displaying such animal brutality. Being a vegetarian is tuff, especially if your from a nonvegeatarian family. However, Christine made her argument not only how meatless foods are good, but how simply eating less is a good start. Its hard to ask someone to top eating meet but it's a nice gesture to try to eat less.
Eating less helps, less animals will be needed to food and maybe a message will be sent to those who practice brutal ways on animals. One interesting point was that animal eat a lot. And its better for the world to have them dead then alive and eating more. This is not a right way to think. Animals were put on this earth by the same supreme being that put us on this earth. Hid intentions was for us to mistreat animals because there sever as a source for food, but only as a source for food and to some people friends and pets.
I personally believe that its better to eat less meet because its healthier, and better for those who mistreat animals. I try once in a while to eat less meat and so should others. Ethical reason give the best reasons for arguing for this reason. Christine Cuomo did a very nice jobs presenting her argument on what we ought to eat. Peter Hoffman also had a very interesting presentation seeing as how he is a restaurant owner in New York. He explained how his restaurant tried hard to used animals for food of course but he tried not to waste it.
He explained how his restaurant used every part of the animal in some way so that there would be no wasting of any animals. Being a restaurant owner is tuff because of having to deal with animal activists, he explains how he is aware of the brutality going on with animals before they are killed for food. Owning a restaurant means having to serve meet, but at least there is a right way and wrong way to go about it; Mr. Hoffman choose to go about it the right way. Everyone tries to do what's ethically right. People are strong believers in doing the right thing and being good people. Different positions can be taken on whether or not animals have rights and how they shouldn't be mistreated before they are killed.
However if you don't take the position of animals rights, then how can you act ethically? I think that those who are religious are ethical and even those who aren't are also in a simple way. If God put animals on this earth for humans to eat and survive, I'm sure he didn't mean for anyone to brutalize then before they made a meal out of them. People use animals for pets, animals can hold a special place in a person's heart.
What makes an animals that we eat any different then that of which we have as pets?
