有一个流行的声明，几乎每一个肉食者都说，在这个野性中，动物会杀死，实际上可以杀死其他动物，因为它是自然的食物。首先，我们必须明白，我们不是生活在野外的世界。其次，我们实际上可以活着而不会杀死动物和吃肉（Sinclair et al。，2003）。那么我有一些反对的问题，就是那些为了吃饭而相互杀死的动物。在这种情况下，我们可以特别回答，食物链就是在那里，而不是人类的情况。野生动物是为了杀死其他动物以获得食物。
所以很明显，人类实际上并不是为了早日将肉变成一个食草动物，而是一种在早期被采纳的生活方式，而那些生活在森林里的人和那些他们找不到的地方食物，开始杀死动物保持活力（Soule et al。，2003）。但在今天的情况下，非素食不是动物人口状况的一种趋势。
There is one popular statement that almost every meat eater says is that in this wild nature, animals do kill and can actually kill other animals in order to have food just because it is nature. So first of all, we have to understand that we are not living in the wild world. Then secondly, we can actually live without killing animals and eating meat (Sinclair et. al., 2003). Well, some my counter question that what about those animals who kill each other in order to have food. We can answer that specifically in that case, food chains are meant to be there and not in the case for human beings. Wild animals are meant to kill other animals in order to get their food.
So, it is clear that human beings were not actually meant to have meat earlier as being a herbivore is what a kind of lifestyle that had been adopted in earlier times but then, people who lived in forests and at the places where they could not find food, started killing animals to stay alive (Soule et. al., 2003). But in today’s scenario, it is a kind of a trend to have non-vegetarian food without even bothering on the status of the animals’ population.
We also cannot deny the fact that this regular consumption of meat and animal flesh for the humans has affected the population of the animals in some way or the other.
Below given is a map of the world in which we have shown the increasing consumption of meat and flesh by human beings and that is shown by the colour difference.
The colour is changing from light to dark that depicts the increasing consumption of meat and flesh of so many different kinds of animals by humans.
We have measured it through a scale from 2 to 2.6. Have a look at it and you yourself will understand as of how the today’s world has changed and is now consuming a huge amount of animal flesh than before. We can see that a huge part of USA and almost the whole of Australia is at the top of the list that consumes the highest amount of meat and flesh whereas China and some places in Africa are there that is at the lower position and consumes relatively very less amount of meat. There are a very few parts in Africa that does not even take in meat and flesh. (Estes et. al., 1998)
