"RAISING ANIMALS FOR FOOD IS THE LEADING CAUSE OF RAINFOREST DESTRUCTION, SPECIES EXTINCTION, OCEAN DEAD ZONES AND FRESH WATER CONSUMPTION."
Most people don't even think or even know this statistic is the real deal. I got more of an insight and this quote, from What the Health. This years revolutionary documentary on exposing this ins and outs of the meat and dairy industry. Things you can only imagine and not even realize are happening right under out nose.
I would always question and wonder how are our resources, food mainly, are going to be down the road. Will we have enough food? How much more space is needed? What will be left of our planet. Well the truth is our resources are just about gone and Earth will become inhabitable.
One of causes of the decay of our planet is from the large amounts of greenhouse gases animal raising produces. According to Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations the previous fact I stated also validates animal raising produces even more gases than our transportation sector. So cars, boats, airplanes, trains, buses, etc. And we all know how much we rely on transportation to get to A and B.
Yes, there have been speculations on plants producing more gases because of the molecular processes it goes through. However, 51% of our greenhouse gases come from livestock and only 13% come from transportation. This number comes from the 45% of our planets space being used by animal livestock. That’s just the animals, and not the feed, water and production to also take in consideration too.
So the time is now world. Every little change day by day can really make a positive impact for a better future and healthier lifestyle 🌱
