Why do people not need meat?
Beside this, why we should not eat meat?
People choose not to eat meat for various reasons such as concern for animal welfare, the environmental impact of meat production (environmental vegetarianism), and health considerations. Some argue that slaughtering animals solely because people enjoy the taste of meat is morally wrong or unjustifiable.
Additionally, how does eating meat affect the environment? The environmental impact of meat production varies because of the wide variety of agricultural practices employed around the world. Some of the environmental effects that have been associated with meat production are pollution through fossil fuel usage, animal methane, effluent waste, and water and land consumption.
Furthermore, when did humans start cooking meat?
There is evidence that Homo erectus was cooking their food as early as 500,000 years ago. Evidence for the controlled use of fire by Homo erectus beginning some 400,000 years ago has wide scholarly support.
