Following the wrong diet we do not only harm ourselves and the animals but the environment as well by depleting the un-renewable natural resources.
Do you know that it takes 78 calories of fossil fuel to produce 1 calorie of beef protein; 35 calories for 1 calorie of pork; 22 calories for 1 of poultry; but just 1 calorie of fossil fuel for 1 calorie of soybeans.
By eating plant-based food instead of animal-based food you help conserve our non-renewable resources of energy. It takes 3 to 15 times more water to produce animal protein than to produce plant protein.
In addition, and as a vegetarian you contribute to water conservation.
Do you know that it takes up to 16 pounds of soybeans and grains to produce 1 lb. of beef and 3 to 6 lbs. to produce 1 lb of turkey & egg, while by eating grain foods directly you make the food supply more efficient and that contributes to the environment.
When grains & legumes are used more efficiently, our precious topsoil is automatically made more efficient in its use. We use less agricultural resources to provide for the same number of people.
Even the rain forests in the world, which are the lungs that the world breathes through, are destroyed daily in order to create more acreage to raise livestock.
By not supporting the meat industry you directly reduce the demand to pillage these irreplaceable treasures of nature. Since the forest land “filters” our air supply and contains botanical sources for new medicines, this destruction is irreversible.
Now you have got many reasons to get you starting to think that meat eating is a major injustice to this planet. It is destructive to the physical and mental health of people, depleting the un-renewable resources of energy, causing more hunger in the world, damaging our environment and causing torture and death to billions of poor defenseless animals every year around the world.
