Is Eating Meat a Sin?

A fellow Christian at work said to me, "eating meat is not a sin." I interrupted and proceeded to explain to him that, "eating meat activates lust in the human body. It arouses disordered desires for pleasure. Eating meat opens the door to gluttony, and other sins. Eating meat harms God's animals needlessly. Eating meat is not a need but a want. Eating meat is addictive and causes disease in humans, shortening their life span and lowering the quality of their life due to poor health. Eating meat also hurts the environment, the earth thus hurting human beings. The meat industry and factory farming hurts the poor and hungry people of this world. Meat causes a lot of sin. The only times it would be okay to eat meat is if you are stranded on an island and needed to survive or in some other situation where eating meat is the only option." He tried to use Scripture to prove me wrong but to no avail. It's incredible to me that people will totally ignore the harmful effects of eating meat. In my Church they teach that if something is harmful to you or to others we must avoid it. They also teach us that if something can lead us to sin we must avoid it.
