Im not calling you a liar, but i would like to see proof of all these orchards that are flowing with fruit that is going to waste. Most countries?? I find that hard to believe

Lets get real omnivores... the argument is not about eating meat or not its about how to go about doing it. Vegan diets are just as irresponsible if you only rely on packaged proccesed junk.
Lets say all the die hard omni's are gonna eat only wild meat that they hunt themselves... we would most likely need to hunt deer for viable meat (at least here in my region). Now everyone says "well they are overpopulated so that would be a perfect solution... BS they are under homed fro all of our developing and industrializing. If as a whole humans stopped "raising" meat, we would irradicate most species within a decade. There is no counterbalance. Unfortunatey the cancer and heart disease would not kill us off quite fast enough to control the "prey" population.
All we have to do is rely on fruit trees and free growing greens. Grains are a staple cause they are cheap and easy. Eating a proper plant based diet, we would never be able to over eat the fruits and veggies. My god, did you know that in most countries there are abandoned fruit orchards where enough fruit to feed citites just falls to the ground to rot every year.
If you are saying meat is justifiable as food but you do not support factory farming and you realizre that "raising" meat is in the long run unsustainable than you must be falling back on hunting. Sounds noble but just as unsustainable.
