  1. Imagine a life where people are weak and constantly ill. Imagine everyone being bed ridden and unable to operate the human body at the level appreciated today
  2. The advantages to eating meat are numberless, and the health benefits far out weigh the so- called risks of obtaining any rare diseases, especially for athletes
  3. There is nothing immoral or unethical being done when people eat meat, just an action being done to suppress a person's natural desire for food
  4. The author of ?Eating Meat Is Bad For You,? Vernon Coleman, makes many logical fallacies throughout his argument that don't hold any true value, or that twist the actual truth to push his view on the audience

Imagine a life where people are weak and constantly ill. Imagine everyone being bed ridden and unable to operate the human body at the level appreciated today.

I do agree with the fact Coleman expresses that meat can be very fatty and therefore cause heart problems and diseases in the body. He fails to mention that only some meat that can cause these problems and that meat can also reverse some of these same diseases (Hinman 249). [...]


[...] The author of ?Eating Meat Is Bad For Vernon Coleman, makes many logical fallacies throughout his argument that don't hold any true value, or that twist the actual truth to push his view on the audience. He attempts to sway the readers of his article to take on a vegetarian viewpoint by the following fallacies: Appeal to Fear, Appeal to Pity and Slippery Slope, among others (Vandermay 261-63). He uses Appeal to Fear because he says that, ?those that eat beef are foolishly exposing themselves to the risk of contracting the horrifying human version of Mad Cow Disease.? (par. [...]
