It's not about Ethics...
It's about evolution and survival. We wouldn't be the people we are today without the vitamins we gained from eating meat.
We are animals just like all the others on the planet... well most are
There is a food cycle and we eat meat coz we like it and it contains vitamins and minerals that are good for bodies. Get over it!
hehe now I feel like a porterhouse steak cooked medium!! YUM!!

Is it ethical to eat meat?
The question is more fundamental than that.
Humans exists (and almost all life exists) by feeding off of other life forms; be it grass, fruit,
fungus, or rotting bio-mass.
Humans are designed to be carnivores, so it is natural for us to kill animals and plants to feed.
If it is natural it is ethical. My argument is this; we as a species must kill to survive.
The global population cannot wait for the apple to fall from the tree to feed, and if you
dig up a root, cut a plant, or pluck vegetables from the vine you are killing that organism
The idea that life is sacred is a human fiction that we have created. It is a hypocrisy to
NOT kill and eat meat when we regularly kill with impunity life forms we deem as pests
or harmful. Nobody is trying to garner sympathy for cancer cells or mosquitos, for instance.
To be ethical, eat, but do not waste
