What about lions/early humans? Why is it ok for them to eat meat but not us?

Animals like lions and our early ancestors had no choice but to eat meat in order to survive. We live in a modern agricultural society, rather than a hunter-gatherer society, so we have a huge array of plant-based proteins. Unlike animals or our ancestors, we don't need meat to thrive. Also, there's nothing “natural” about factory farming. Our ancestors ate meat a few times per month, not three times a day, nor did they eat products produced with pesticides and antibiotics.
