Does that include the bugs, rodents, and other small animals that get killed during the harvesting process?

In order for one animal to eat, another animal must die. It’s the circle of life. And that’s ok.

Meat requires far more agricultural production per calorie, nearly an order of magnitude.

Eating plant-based reduces the death of animals killed by harvesting by 90% all things being equal, on top of the cruelty reduction of factory farming on slaughter.

There is no such thing as perfect ethics, but that's not a valid reason to make things 10x worse.
