This is a question that a colleague asked me a couple years ago, and it just keeps coming back to me. If one becomes informed about the damage that our meat consumption is causing on the planet, does it become immoral for one to consume meat? Say, if you watch a couple documentaries on Netflix and continue consuming meat, does that make you a bad person? I don't really have an answer. I think about it every time I eat a burger.
Once you know you're doing harm, I do think it's your responsibility to try to do less harm. But I don't think it requires an instant 180 change. Doing better is better than doing nothing.

That's pretty much the approach that I've taken. I don't know of I'll ever be 100% vegetarian. I'm glad to see other people reaching the same conclusion as I. Also, I am excited about the mainstream adoption of Impossible and Beyond replacement meat brands.
They are processed food anyway and they are not healthier than red meat. I'm adding more fresh vegetables to my meals, but I'm staying away from those plant based meats. :)
