Lol - meat is not a requirement of a healthy balanced diet and it is inelegant of you to suggest that it is. Simply put - meat is a convenient scource of protein, that happens to have some vitamins in one package that must be garnered in more convoluted ways via plant matter. People do not eat meat because they have to, but because they want to.

Well what you meant is a logical fallacy - Our inability to recognise fear or pain or mental anguish in an animal we slaughter does not indicate an absence of torture. Maybe in a tabloid headline - not to a person who requires a little reason. There is as much evidence to say that dust mites live in a state of perpetual ecstacy as there is to say that slaughtered animals don't undergo torture.
