Humans should not use animals as sources of food and clothing. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this opinion?
In ancient times, there was no opposition to consumption of animal products. But now many animal-right activists object to consumption of animals as sources of food and clothing. I disagree with their position.
It may be true that some forms of animal consumption pose threats to our lives. Not only is the hunting of endangered species such as whaling cruel, it can also cause damage to the ecosystem. As citizens are increasingly aware of the impact of the extinction of endangered species, it is reasonable for the government to regulate the consumption of endangered species a s food and clothing.
Form economic and social perspective, however, forbidding consumption of animal products altogether is not necessarily sound advice. Some species reproduce very quickly and may become overpopulated without proper control. For example, in the 1990s, the overpopulation of kangaroos in Australia had seriously reduced the crop yield and caused traffic problems until the government allowed some people to hunt kangaroos for their meat.
Proper consumption of non-endangered species as sources of food and clothing would not damage the ecosystem. On the contrary, it can help to promote healthy interaction between humans and the wildlife. For example, a reasonable amount of daily intake of animal products can strengthen our immune system, which can help to protect us against contagious diseases.
