We could easily save the world and make it a better place for everyone. Everyone could be healthier and happier and we could have more joy and compassion.
This method doesn’t cost us anything; in fact it saves us a lot of money and it saves trillions of lives.
We could solve world hunger and diminish the leading health related diseases and illnesses.
All we have to do is switch from breeding and eating animals, to eating a plant-based diet.
But a Plant-Based Diet Will Take up More Land and Resources??
False. False. False.
The plant products are already produced, but then fed to animals so we can kill the animal and satisfy our taste buds.
What do you think these animals are eating? There are over 70,000,000,000 animals being bred at a time and they obviously eat way more than humans. We are bringing in 70,000,000,000 more mouths to and they eat wayyyy more than us.
Just the 1,500,000,000 cows we bring in to existence need 135,000,000,000 pounds of food daily.
The human population needs about 21,000,000,000 pounds of food daily.
50% of the grain and legumes we grow we feed to the animals. 90% of the soy we grow we feed to animals. (Cowspiracy)
82% of the worlds starving children live in countries where we use the land to grow food for our livestock. So they see all this food being grown but then we just give it to the animals because we can’t profit off of the poor starving children. (Cowspiracy)
We could feed every human being on the planet a healthy diet if we stopped giving all of our food to livestock and if we stopped using all of the land for grazing.
What About Protein Bro?
We could create 15x more protein sources on any given land if we grew plants for humans to eat instead of using it for animals. (Cowspiracy)
We would even have so much excess land left over that we could just let it grow back to forests.
To feed a person on a plant based vegan diet for a year requires 1/6 of an acre of land. (Cowspiracy)
Feeding a person on an average American diet that includes dairy, eggs and meat requires 18x as much land.
You can produce 37,000 pounds of plant food on 1.5 acres of land. (Cowspiracy)
But you can only produce 375 pounds of meat on 1.5 acres of land. (Cowspiracy)
-That is 10x less food just so we can kill and animal and it eat’s flesh.
Livestock covers 45% of the earths total land. (Cowspiracy)
A plant based diet requires 1/18th the amount of land. And the diet is healthier and can feed every person in the world. And it doesn’t require the immoral killing of trillions of living beings.
These billions of animals create soooo much waste. Imagine how much cleaner this planet would be without the poop of billions of animals.
Just in the U.S. alone, livestock creates 116,000 pounds of waste per second. (Cowspiracy)
Animal agriculture is responsible for up tp 91% of the Amazon Rainforest Destruction. (Cowspiracy)
1-2 acres of rainforest are destroyed every second for livestock. (Cowspiracy)
What About Farmers’ Jobs?
People say farmers will lose their jobs. But the farmers can switch from farming animals to farming plants and they will get incentives.
I don’t know about you but I would much rather grow plants rather than raping and slaughtering innocent animals.
It’s Common Sense
All of this food already exists.
All of these plants already exist.
But instead of just eating the plants ourselves, we force breed all of these animals in to existence.
So now we have almost 100,000,000,000 more mouths to feed.
And these animals eat more than us.
We put these animals in terrible living conditions and pump them with 80% of our medicine and feed them 80% of our food, just so we can eat their dead body parts.
We are forced to use huge amounts of land just so they have a place to graze.
We are forced to clear out forests so they have places to live and we need more land to grow food since they eat more than us.
IF WE JUST ATE THE FOOD OURSELVES-THE FOOD THAT ALREADY EXISTS-THEN WE WOULD HAVE ENOUGH TO FEED THE WHOLE WORLD. BUT INSTEAD WE FEED IT TO THE BILLIONS OF ANIMALS AND ONLY GET 1/10 OF THE FOOD WE HAD IN THE FIRST PLACE.
And because of these actions rainforests are being cut down. Over half of the world is starving. Trillions of living beings are dying. And on and on.
I could go on and on about how damaging the consumption of dead animals is to the planet. And I could go on and on about how beneficial it will be for everyone to switch to a plant based diet.
But I think the point is clear and it is obvious which one you should choose.
I don’t expect everyone to go vegan overnight but I want you to start researching and slowly implementing the diet in to your life.
You can look at my blog for tips, advice, shopping lists, recipes, etc.
Here’s a good tip on how to start transitioning:
