Hahahaha...hell no! We are biologically evolved to be omnivores. Among other adaptations, we have the differentiated dentition of an omnivore and a gut designed to process both animal and plant material. Anyone who thinks we weren't meant to eat meat is kidding themselves.
Ergo, I will never stop eating meat. That being said, I'm certainly in favor of treating animals ethically prior to them becoming my food (free range and not cooped up in a tiny pen 24/7, giving them a healthy diet, not pumping them full of antibiotics and growth hormones, etc.). Sure, I might have to pay a tiny bit more for my meat, but that's a fair trade off in my opinion.
"We have not adapted tho[ugh]..."
Sorry, but all the scientific evidence suggests otherwise.
"...explain the fact that as animal produce consumption rises so is heart disease, cancer and respiratory diseases..."
That's a load of cr@p. Ice Age humans in Eurasia lived off of a primarily meat diet and still survived the extremely harsh conditions, due in large part to their high-calorie, high-protein diet. Furthermore, Inuit peoples live off a diet that his high in meat and fish...and they have extremely low rates of heart disease. The medical conditions you are referring to are due primarily to other, outside factors. Any problems with the food are really just problems with the processing and cultivation, and not with the meat itself nor with humans' ability to digest and process such foods. Hence, the push for grass-fed, antibiotic-free, hormone-free, organic meat. So, yeah, you're just plain wrong. Sorry.
"Also explain the fact that if you put a cow in front of a meat eater and [t]old them to [s]lit it's throat to eat it for their dinner the majority couldn’t"
Once again, I'm sorry to disappoint you, but...you're wrong. If I go hiking in the woods, and a bear (an omnivorous animal, like us humans) kills and eats me, I GUARANTEE YOU that the bear doesn't feel bad about it!
