A for and against essay

Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of becoming vegetarian or vegan

Despite the fact that people every time is more conscious about the suffering of animals caused by humans, meat-eating people continue with their same habits. Furthermore, many people argue that they are not doing anything wrong. But luckily, there are a lot of vegetarian or vegan persons, and being one of them has both advantages and disadvantages.

On the plus side, a good vegetarian has better health than a meat-eating person. That’s because meat has lots of substances that harm our body, and also it takes more energy to digest meat than vegetables. Another important point is that it is not necessary to kill animals to feed us. If we were carnivores, we should have specialized claws and teeth like all carnivores. And if we were true omnivores, our digestive system could easily digest meat.

However, for every plus there is a minus. One disadvantage is that it is difficult to stop eating meat if you have been doing it your whole life. The adaptation is an important fact that not everyone passes, because social influence may affect our new decision. For instance, people can laugh at you or you can have uncomfortable meals. Last of all, some vegetarian or vegan people are not informed at all, so they should investigate and know well what to eat not to miss any nutrients in the diet.

To sum up, although most people think that being a meat-eating is the best option, I think that they should consider all the meat damages and the suffering produced in slaughterhouses.
