If eating meat is animal abuse, using your argument, why don't you consider eating vegetables to be vegetable abuse?

The same could be said about vegetables though. All the pesticides + genetic manufacturing is probably just as dangerous, not to mention some of these vegetarians drank milk and ate cheese, pumped full of hormones and preservatives. I agree as vast as the sample is, there are too many variables to call it.

I do not drink wine.. It does not agree with me. I am not preaching I am far from perfect. I am sitting here wearing a leather belt for example...
most bugs (including locusts) have 9x more protein pound for pound than ground beef.
Insects absolutely have nutritious value such as protein. In addition, they also contain iron and loads of calcium and phosphorus -- not to mention vitamins such as that which is found in your daily multivitamin. Eating bugs is actually very common; there is an endless amount of bugs that it is perfectly okay to eat. In many countries, people continue to eat them to this day. Some examples are grasshoppers, field crickets, grubs and cicadas. Many people do not realize that they eat a small amount of bugs each day. There are bugs that very easily get into bread and, in fact, bugs continually get into the flour that is milled in granaries. The black specks in your bread could actually be bugs in the grain
Everyday is, in fact, too much red meat ... 3 times a week, with some fish and fowl thrown in the mix is more than adequate for your dietary needs ... of course, as much vegies and grains as you can handle in there as well
