Eating meat is cruel to animals.
1. Pets vs. other animals.
Look at those animals. How you feel bad if they were killed and ate?

The news CNN.com states that, in the meat industry, animal abuse and cruelty is the norm.

And. The beaks of egg-laying hens were cut before they confined to tiny cages.

Eating less meat to improve our health.
Diets rich in animal products contribute to the increased risk incidence of obesity as well as type 2 diabetes in the US.
According to a report published by JAMA Internal Medicine, eating red or processed meat can, over time, increase the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
Dan Nadeau, an endocrinologist at Hoag Hospital in Irvine, California, said 3.5 ounces of red meat daily led to a 19% increase in diabetes risk or 1.8 ounces of processed meat (e.g. a hot dog or 2 slices of bacon) daily led to 51% increase in diabetes risk.
Meat puts your colon and brain at risk.
According to prevention.com.
A recent study from UCLA shows that meat contains a whole lot of iron which, when eaten in excess, can raise levels of iron in the brain and may increase the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease,. When iron accumulates in the brain, myelin—a fatty tissue that coats nerve fibers—is destroyed. This disrupts brain communication, and signs of Alzheimer's appear.

Eating red and processed meats also greatly increases the risk of colorectal cancer in people with a genetic predisposition. Affecting one in three individuals, the gene plays a role in the immune system, according to researchers. If you have this gene, eating and digesting meat may trigger an immune or inflammatory response.
