    Pork is pretty bad to eat raw compared with beef, but even then you're unlikely to die from it. OP is a vegetarian shill, he clearly hates humanity and our natural inclinations to devour less creatures.
    Indeed. I wouldn't recommend it for everyone, but it won't send you to the hospital either!

    I hope you're not serious.The mere fact that humans can choose to eat meat proves we're not herbivores.Herbivores dont have a choice they have to eat plants as they cant digest meat.Seriously try giving a cow meat and nothing else see what happens.

    Social conditioning. Try giving a human meat and nothing else and see what happens?

    Carnivore/omnivore babies will kill their prey no problem

    When was the last time you saw a human baby kill an animal to eat it?



    It simply isn't in our psychology to deal with hunting and killing. We will not and cannot deal with it. Actually, one study found that slaughter house workers suffered from severe PTSD and such work was voted as an ultra hazardous activity.

    I'm gonna say that the human would survive a lot longer than a cow on purely meat.Social conditioning seriously? Couldnt just be that humans like the taste of meat.Carnivore and omnivore babies dont just instantly kill their prey.Lion cubs and cheetah cubs have to learn to hunt from their mother they dont just instantly know how to do it.Its obviously in our psychology to deal with hunting and killing since we've actually been doing it for millenia.You're the one going against the entire scientific community by saying that humans are herbivores.Its agreed that humans are omnivores and I trust their opinion a lot more than the PETA website.

    You can eat raw steak and fish, as well as bacon and pork. You can, strictly, eat raw chicken, but it can cause salmonella as our digestive tracts are longer than that of other animals which do eat raw chicken, so the bacteria is given longer to colonise, increasing infection likelihood.

    Humans, originally, weren't meant to eat meat. Eventually, however, due to a combination of self-awareness and natural selection, it became a necessity that we ate meat to survive. That is why many people use human teeth as proof that humans "shouldn't eat meat" - we have teeth comparable to those of herbivores, not carnivores - this is simply because our cultural and necessary transition to meat-eating occurred faster than evolution of teeth.
    I worked with a guy who ate hand fulls of raw bacon and when he cooked a steak he would get the skillet real hot and cook a 1 inch T-bone for maybe 3min on each side.
    Watching him eat the steak wasn't bad but seeing him eat the bacon made me wanna puke.

    Humans don't eat raw meat because we don't have the stomach acidity that carnivores and omnivores have to prevent food poisoning. Therefore humans cook meat and this suggests humans are herbivores.

    Sanitation. It's better for you to eat raw meat but our immune systems are weaker now than they once were so we cook it to kill bacteria. It also adds a lot of flavour.
    Also freshness surely. If you kill the meat and eat it straight away as animals do in the wild, then it's less likely to harbour bacteria. Although would still have parasites etc, but that's the risk all animals take.

    Do lion cubs hunt or do their mothers brings back food for them?

    Why does it have to be cooked?

    If humans are meant to eat meat- then why can they survive without eating meat and still be healthy?

    Just because you can do something it doesn't mean you are meant to do it. Just because you were born into a society were something is the norm- it doesn't mean it was meant to be that way. Just because something has been happening for thousands of years it doesn't mean it has to continue happening. All these arguments that are made for meat is weak.
    We can eat raw meat, its just a lie i mean a myth perpetuated by the big corporations to sell you teflon pans and fancy ovens. My cat eats raw meat he doesnt get sick but cats cant buy Teflon pans and new kitchen

    OP is a salty vegetarian, he doesn't care about facts. You can see this from the low test passive-aggression inherent in his posts, you must eat at least one steak every day to to avoid turning into him.

    Guys. Come on.

    Yes the OP is being over the top. But it is common knowledge that a vegetarian diet is healthier than a meat based diet. So no, I would not encourage eating one steak a day. I also think you are showing a blatant disregard for environmental sustainability and animal welfare, as well as a blatant disregard for human health.

    I think eating meat a couple of times a week is perfectly fine but the need to eat meat every day is just greedy.
