Reasons Canine Teeth don't make you a meat eater

Humans, as we were evolving, ate primarily foraged fruits and vegetables with meat thrown in when available. This is why most of our teeth are flat. We have canines, true, but humans in prehistory weren't eating meat 3x a day every day. Our digestive system isn't able to handle as much meat. We can't even eat raw meat, unlike all natural carnivores. To think that our teeth are able to "efficiently and quickly tear apart meat" is ridiculous. Have you tried eating a raw steak recently?

What’s Wrong With Shrimp? When it comes to shrimp, there are several important ethical and environmental factors to consider. Organic waste Chemicals Pollution Loss of biodiversity Overfishing Bycatch Organic waste, chemicals, and antibodies from shrimp farms can quickly pollute groundwater or coastal estuaries. The pollution from these farms can result in loss of coastal biodiversity, which is essential for a healthy ecosystem. Wild caught shrimp often involves bycatch—the incidental capture of non-target species such as dolphins, marine sea turtles and seabirds. Raw shrimp also often contains a bacterium called Vibrio, which attaches itself to the shells of shrimp and other shellfish—gross! Why support this harmful industry when you can enjoy delicious and cruelty-free shrimp instead? What Is Vegan Shrimp Made Out Of? But...
