Sample Answer (Band 9.0)
Owing to the lack of knowledge of cultivation, human species was largely hinges on Animals as their food.But with the evolution, human beings begin to settle at one place and started exploring plants as possible sources of food. This development leads to creation of two groups namely carnivorous and Herbivorous. There has been raging debate on the issue as whether consuming animals as food is cruel or a essential part of diet. However, I firmly assert that animals should not be slaughtered for food.
To begin with, every living creature has a right to live and we have no right to kill any creature to satisfy our own appetite. Secondly, over exploitation of certain species will lead to its extinctions thus disturbing the ecological balance. A disruption in the hierarchy of the ecosystem will pose grave threat to the mother nature. To exemplify, a recent survey conducted by UN revealed that by the end of 2030, there will be a slump in the number of marine creatures such as fishes and crabs by 70%.
Thirdly, the animals are often treated so miserably in the slaughterhouses. They suffer from many ailments and their bodies are full of bruises. The meat of these diseased animals when consumed by humans give rise to many problems like high blood pressure, and heart diseases. And finally, all the animals are adorable and seek human love, thus , in order to satisfy our taste buds, they should not be killed. Killing any living being is even against human morals and ethics. For instance, a recent study by PETA showed the heart wrenching conditions of animals in slaughterhouses of UK and also revealed that there has been an increase in the non vegetarian people suffering from heart problem by 10%.
To conclude, mother nature has created all the species and human beings the most intelligent and evolved species should use their intelligence in constructive and humane tasks. We all should be loving and humble towards other species as human survival is impossible without other creatures.
