Meat should be banned

Five reasons why you shouldn't go without meat

Important nutrients
Meat contains a lot of nutrients. Of course, there are numerous studies that show that eating too much meat can make you sick. In principle, however, this applies to all foods that are consumed in excess. It is also a fact that moderate meat consumption is perfectly healthy. Meat contains the valuable minerals iron and zinc. No food meets the body's iron needs as well as meat. Iron ensures that oxygen is transported to the cells. Meat is also an excellent source of protein and the important vitamin B 12 is only found in animal products.

Even the ancestors ate meat
Eating meat is a very human habit. The question of whether humans are carnivores, herbivores or omnivores is a constant controversial topic. Vegetarians like to argue that the anatomy of the human digestive system and the lack of fangs and claws prove that humans are born to eat plants. A scientific study speaks against this: Researchers at the University of Arkansas have found bite marks on animal bones that can be traced back to the genus Homo, an ancestor of modern humans who lived 2.5 million years ago.

A sensual pleasure
Eating meat is a sensual pleasure. It's actually a banal argument - but meat just tastes and smells good. The inimitable taste and smell of meat is a sensual experience: the smell of the grill in summer, a Sunday roast at a family celebration, a hearty snack with sausage on a mountain tour. These are experiences that no meat eater would want to miss. No other food offers so many flavors and can be prepared in such different ways.

A filler
Meat is easy to fry. It has excellent properties for satisfying a family's hunger quickly and in a tasty way. Thanks to the many nutrients contained in meat, moderate consumption makes healthy eating extremely easy. You don't have to worry about your vitamin and mineral intake. And in order to fry a delicious schnitzel or to cover a sausage steak, nobody has to take a cooking course. Meat in the pan also brings men to a boil - in the best sense of the word.

If meat, then high quality
Ethically correct meat consumption is easier than ever today. With all the positive properties that meat undoubtedly has, there is also no question that the conditions in industrial factory farming should not be supported. Every meat consumer should be aware of his responsibility towards farm animals and act accordingly. Nowadays it is possible to buy high quality meat away from industrial mass production without any major problems. Don't be afraid to pay a visit to the farm where your meat comes from. A good meat producer shouldn't have anything to hide.
