Well, let's get one thing straight. We are omnivores, not carnivores, not herbivores. Alright, let's get to the next step. We choose what we eat. Since we are omnivores, we have a larger variety of what we can eat rather than both other extreme sides. Believe it or not, there are actually "carnivorous" people out there, not saying that I favor them. Then there are obviously the vegetarians. Obviously they are more acceptable because there are vegies and other things alike that can provide you what meat provides you.
Digestion.. not made to eat meat. Sure, give or take an opinion on it, but it's kind of hard talking to a vegetarian about it, you know? You seem to be leaning on one side while I'm standing here in the middle, and I feel like you'll take none of what I say into consideration. If anything, it's important to look and cherish not both, but all sides of the "story" we're sharing.
If I remember correctly, food poisoning most likely comes from old and not properly cooked meats. So if anything, you'd have to trust the chef actually knows how to cook, and yourself. Is the food up to date, check, is it cooked well, check, carry on. If there are other ways for food poisoning, then feel free to let me know.
Our teeth? Not carnivores? Well this is why I stated my first paragraph. Obviously we are not carnivores, I mean, we are omnivores. We can't say we should be one or the other as a human race, especially if we already classified ourselves as omnivores. Chimpanzees are omnivores, they eat meat occasionally. They are likely omnivores like us, and they have teeth somewhat like ours, somewhat. That being said, we aren't the only omnivores that have teeth like ours, and I'm not just talking about chimpanzees, there are a lot more. Maybe it's safe to say that we are more herbivorous than carnivorous, that's fine with me, just because we're omnivores doesn't mean we have to be stable on both sides. I wouldn't be surprised if we started off as a herbivore, if I remember correctly we handle meats unnaturally; but it works. Also as an omnivore we never had to have sharp teeth because we never had to bite down on our prey or tear the meat out with our teeth. That's what carnivores and omnivores do, really, and we have the hands to pick it up and eat it. Most have paws, we have hands to do our job. We don't need much to chew meat down, I mean, most animals barely even chew if I remember correctly. Just because we don't have sharp teeth doesn't mean we shouldn't be omnivorous.
Cavemen, a long, long, long time ago, occasionally ate meat. Yes, and now we obviously eat it more often than occasionally. Sadly people eat way too much, and just for the punch, meat is not the biggest problem for weight problems if that is what you're thinking too. To some/most people, money does the talking. Sadly. People don't have to respect the animal, but I do. I personally respect it before I eat it. It's just something I do, I feel like not many people do it, probably because they're sitting there thinking "Oh yay food!" and just eating afterwords, but that's not exactly the case for me. I'm not exactly religious or anything, but I take part in respect very well. Besides that, I don't know if people care about the animal or not. I don't know if other carnivorous and omnivorous animals care about respect for the animals they eat and kill. I think it's just living that really gets to them, the desire to keep living. I don't know to be honest, but it's a good thought. We're not all savage beings.
I remember a science teacher of mine talking about some sort of island, I don't remember the name, that was overrun by some species of deer that had no predator. It took only 100 years for the whole island to become overly, majorly populated. This lead plants to be heavily overeaten. This not only killed a lot of deer because of the lack of food and deadly diseases, this also killed a lot of plants and other herbivores, therefore the carnivores whom eat those probably smaller herbivores also lacked population as well. Everything goes downhill when something goes far unbalanced. It's not a healthy thing to think one or the other is better; there's an extreme good and extreme bad for everything. So yeah, I agree.
I know someone that was basically like you, she couldn't eat meat (other than chicken) because it made her feel more ill. By religion she can't eat most meats anyway. I, a proud omnivore that eats both meats and plants, would like to say that I have not been sick for, I don't know, I don't remember being sick in the last year or anything. It's probably because I'm smart about eating meat. It's bad to eat too much, but eating meat can be good for you.
How turkeys feel to be eaten, this is a tough one to go about. I don't know what everyone thinks to be honest, but either some or most people wouldn't care what a turkey would think if they ate it. I imagine some saying "It's dead, it can't talk" or "animals don't have souls, they don't have a mind to begin with" (I did an argument about animals having rights and there's something religious about animals not having a mind or soul, they're basically unimportant compared to humans. I was attempting to favor animal rights, so I had the challenge of trying to get around the religion idea of animals without having to be overly hated on about it.). Predators that eat turkeys might not care either, they eat for survival is what we think about them. We don't simply have to point at humans and say we have a lack of caring, we may as well say that everyone, including animals, in the world does not care. It's kind of hard to say when you don't know what everyone including animals are thinking in a general sense. You can't really put words into another's mouth.
Got #1 high score for goats! Woohoo!
