Should vegetarian options be mandatory at all restaurants?

Roughly 13 percent of Americans identify as either vegan or vegetarian, but only a minority of restaurants carry vegetarian menu options. Most restaurants cater to meat-eaters, a diet that contributes to America's obesity epidemic and our considerable carbon footprint. Should all restaurants carry vegetarian menu options, to help encourage people to make smarter choices and reinforce healthy eating habits? Or do you think it's your God-given right to ignore vegetarians? Vote below.

Giving up beef would do more to help save our planet than worrying about car mileage. Shouldn't we be helping people make smarter choices at every place they eat? Restaurant culture can have a big impact on larger society, like when smoking sections got banned.

But aren't vegetarians annoying? Why should meat-eaters have to capitulate to them? Will your BBQ joint have to include a quinoa dish? Is no place sacred!?

It's hard out there for people trying to eat healthy and do their part to help the environment. Why do we make it so difficult for vegetarians to find a decent meal or offer simple alternatives? It could go a long way to helping solve our obesity epidemic.

Oh, get off your high horse, vegetarians! Recent research suggests not all veggies are created equal, and the impact of eating only vegetables doesn't necessarily mean you're helping the environment:

“You can’t just assume that a vegetarian diet will reduce your carbon footprint, which is what people think.”

Why are restaurants throwing away money, and making it difficult to eat healthy? People shouldn't be penalized for making smart life choices!

On the other hand, this is America. We have the right to eat meat, don't we? 🍖
