Meat is one of those things that, unless you live in India, probably defines your eating habits to some extent. In fact, even if you are vegetarian you probably spend a lot of time considering meat replacements or whether a certain restaurant serves food that you can eat. Even in countries where people eat meat, it sometimes can only be a certain type of meat. In many Muslim countries, for example, meat must be halal. This means that it must be killed in a certain way. As you can see, eating meat is not as simple anymore as just going down to the farm and killing some animals for yourself.
