Breeding and raising animals for slaughter, and feeding them thousands of tonnes of fodder grown on land that could
grow food for humans, is not ''basic survival''. Quite apart from being a morally bankrupt system, it's inefficient and wasteful. It's not even a staple - grains and rices and potatoes are staples
. There's a reason that subsistence farmers barely get by on a diet of 90% rice
. If producing meat was more efficient than producing vegetables, as you claim, then they'd be eating mostly meat. Instead, it's the richest
regions of the world that eat the most meat. Meat is a luxury.
Grains, rices & potatoes aren't staples, since none of those were available to our ancestors. Whether you like it or not, animal protein is a staple. It's why the brain's 'big bang' happened. It's literally the reason for our intelligence. We're omnivores, you're never going to stop humans from being omnivores not without genetic engineering, and who knows what detrimental effect that will have on us as a species.
I workout everyday. On top of that I cycle everywhere. Try cycling 10 miles to the gym, lift weights for an hour, then cycle 10 miles back every single day like I do on some vegan soyboy diet. I'd collapse and die! I eat steak for breakfast, I eat it for dinner, I eat it for supper. I need meat several times a day. Without it I wouldn't grow and I certainly wouldn't have any energy or the nutrients needed to keep going.
This evil agenda to turn us all into effeminate vegan soyboys with girly arms isn't for me thanks you can keep it.
I've already stated though, I'm against intensive/factory farming, and believe in stun before harvest without any excuses religious or otherwise.
You have a choice, just buy grass-fed pastured like I do.
