Why love one but eat the other?

Why love one but eat the other?
Especially because we do not need to eat animals, and because we actually do better when we do not eat them.
All nutrients found in animal products are found in plants, but packaged better...alongside with disease-fighting, health-promoting fiber and phytochemicals, which are exclusive to plants.
The exception, of course, is vitamin B12, which is not native to animals, but made in the soil by microorganisms. Since we wash our produce and therefore do not access it directly, supplementing with vitamin B12 is cheap, effective, and simple and helps avoid a need to eat animals and their accompanying saturated fat, cholesterol, hormones, antibiotics, heme iron, carnitine, Neu5Gc, environmental destruction, and horrific, inane breeding and torture of billions of animals per year.
Eat plants. For your health. For the animals. For the planet.
