Humane Treatment of Animals Should be the Core for Vegetarianism

More people are choosing to transition to plant-based diets because of the abundant evidence of their positive effects on human health. However, Oxford ethicist William MacAskill (formerly William Crouch) believes that vegetarianism’s main core should be our treatment to animals. He believes that the health benefits rely more on the decrease in consumption of red meat, while the animals who suffer the most abuse are those who produce milk and eggs. MacAskill challenges people to look into their ethical values in order to make food choices.

Please visit Vegetarians Live Longer But It's Not Because They Don't Eat Meat:
Compassion is really what drives people to make ethical choices and what helps people stick to those choices. When people become vegetarian for health reasons, they may “cheat” every now and then. On the other hand, when people choose foods based on compassion, they rarely or never think about eating something that came from a suffering being.
