  1. The most ethical, environmental and balanced diet is the vegan diet. Regarding the environment, a vegan diet produces much less methane emissions, uses less water and agricultural land; and produces less water pollution than a non-vegan diet. When it comes to health, a vegan diet helps protect against heart disease, cancer and zoonotic diseases. Finally, in terms of ethics, if we value a human life by it’s capacity to suffer; one also should do the same for an animal’s life to maintain logical consistency.

    Firstly, veganism is superior in terms of environmental protection. This is mostly due to the amount of greenhouse gases that livestock produce. For example, cow burps and farts can produce copious amounts of methane; a potent greenhouse gas 30 times more potent than carbon dioxide. Similarly, the bacteria that breaks down manure also contributes to methane production. Due to this, a vegan diet would help curb greenhouse gas emissions and thus, global warming as well. Furthermore,the vegan diet is superior in terms of resource management. For example, a cattle ranch may require many acres of rainforest to be torn down, whereas a plant farm is much more resource efficient. In regards to everything mentioned above, a vegan diet is better for the environment due to the greatly reduced greenhouse gas emissions and land efficiency.

    Secondly, the vegan diet is superior in terms of health compared to a non vegan diet. Animal flesh contains excess saturated fat which is detrimental to human health. Saturated fat clogs arteries and can lead to heart disease. However, in plant based foods there is much less saturated fat, and thus, it is much easier to moderate it in one’s diet. Moreover, a chemical known as heme iron is only found in animal flesh. This chemical is carcinogenic, and its effects are amplified by the cooking of flesh. Most importantly, animals, like humans, contain hormones. Due to this, their hormones are still present when someone consumes them. This can lead to hormone disruption throughout the body. With regards to everything above, veganism lowers one’s risk for heart disease, cancer, and hormonal issues such as diabetes.

    Lastly, the vegan diet is morally superior compared to the carnist diet. If one is to value humans, then they must find some difference between humans and animals that justifies killing and eating one but not the other. This might seem easy at first, but becomes progressively harder when traits are narrowed down. For example, someone may claim that animals are less intellectually sophisticated than humans, and thus, it is not morally wrong to kill them. However, there exist humans with mental disabilities that render them the same intellectual capacity of a pig or cow. If one were to accept this reductio ad absurdum, they would have to also accept it is not morally wrong to kill and consume mentally disabled people. Another popular argument is that humans have consumed animals throughout nature and the course of history, but have infrequently engaged in cannibalism, and thus, it would not be morally wrong to consume animals but still morally wrong to consume humans. This argument easily disintegrates when one realizes there are a multitude of “natural” and historical things that humans once did that would be morally wrong to do in modern society. For example, people of the past owned slaves, but that would not justify owning slaves today. Furthermore, many animals naturally eat their own feces, if humans ought to abide by what is “natural”, then the interlocutor should find no issue eating their own feces. Regarding this paragraph, it is clear the vegan diet is ethically superior to the non vegan one.

    In conclusion, the vegan diet is superior in terms of the environment due to its much lower land usage and greenhouse gas production. Furthermore, it is healthier, reducing heart disease, cancer, and hormonal issues such as diabetes. Finally, it is morally superior because there appears to be no morally relevant delineation between humans and animals that justifies slaughtering animals but not humans. Due to these points, the vegan diet is superior to the non vegan diet.
