I couldn't live a life without meat. Well, I could, but I wouldn't want to. It simply tastes too good.
On the topic of how the animals are raised, it depends on where where you buy the meat. Some actually don't "torture" the animals, which unfortunately makes the meat a tad more expensive. But I'd be willing to pay that. The meat might be better in the long run, anyway.
On the other hand, humans aren't the only ones eating meat, so I kinda find it natural. If the animals are treated well, of course.
That's it. Nothing more to say.... except:
