i agree with you
everyone has the right to live with dignity in this world
just when god has made us strong we cant take advantage of our position
we are powerful so that we can protect other living beings
I recall (so not ‘hard’ evidence) some buddhist teacher saying it is wrong to ‘kill’ anything to eat, including fruit/veg, and that you should make an offering of thanks when you eat it. I also recall that he said you could eat meat, but only from animals that have died from natural causes…why you’d want to do that, though, is another matter.
Hmmm… Difficult to decide, probably a continuum… you could always debate one way or another. Mind you would a meat eater want to eat a diseased carcass? Thinking about it they already do, so my answer is:
I don’t know.
Eating an animal that died of disease might be deadly for a human.
Scavengers have ways to fight the deadly bacterium and some diseases.
And even they can die from some diseases.
now closer to the topic:
That’s true I can kill a bug while I’m walking and I definitely kill harmful bacterium that is attacking my body or would have attacked it if my immune system wouldn’t have killed it.
Sometime killing is necessary sometime it’s accidental.
The question might be: Is killing animals that suffer the way we suffer a necessary thing?
And many plants aren’t killed when fruits are harvested, so eat fruits Bros and Sis the most ethical and healthy food. The Food of Gods.
Sadly, I can’t find it: London’s expanded quite a bit since my Grandad worked there He says the food was surprisingly varied, because a lot of things that we think of as vegetables are technically fruits (e.g. tomatoes). Maybe I’ll ask him a bit more about it when I next visit?
I am not exactly positive if this is the only reason why tomatoes are considered a fruit here, but I believe that I have read somewhere, or heard from someone, that it is due to the fact that tomatoes have seeds. Apparently, every food that contains seeds is now considered a fruit. Most stores here still label them as vegetables, even though they are technically fruit. I have grown up knowing them as vegetables, though, so they are vegetables to me .
