Eating animals poses a major global health risk and the costs are enormous and they’re not borne only by the meat-eaters themselves nor by the animals but by everybody on the planet whether they eat meat or not. I say this because we’ve seen this over and over again that epidemics and pandemics have come from eating meat.
This is a quote from Peter Singer in this short interview from 5th March 2020. This has occurred to me also that even people who don’t eat meat are paying the enormous cost of others eating meat. It’s not just a personal choice when it affects everyone so profoundly.
