When you think about…a healthy environment is healthy for all of us.

The less meat we eat, the fitter we are and the finer our planet. The less meat we eat, the fewer animals needed to feed a meat-hungry world. The less meat we eat, the cleaner our water and soil. The less meat we eat, the more we celebrate life.

According to an article in the Guardian, “The quest for ever cheaper meat in the past few decades – most people even in rich countries ate significantly less meat one and two generations ago – has resulted in a massive expansion of intensively farmed livestock. This has diverted vast quantities of grain from human to animal consumption, requiring intensive use of fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides….” In an age when many of the 7 billion people on earth have barely enough to live on, we need to reevaluate our addiction to meat.

By reducing our reliance on animal products for our daily nutrition, we create a healthier environment for all 7 billion people. Fewer animals are raised, thereby reducing the number of animals living in factory farms. With fewer animals living in factory farms, fewer resources (water, pesticides, fertilizers, etc.) are needed and ground water is less polluted. With fewer animals being raised for food, less grain is needed to feed them; grain which can better feed the impoverished. Feeding the poor and hungry reduces the ravages of diseases that affect children, especially. Healthy children are productive and help their communities thrive as they mature into adulthood. When you think about it…cleaner water, cleaner soil, and healthier diets promote growth and development of healthy humans and a healthy planet.
