  • 6. but by eating meat a few days less each week , you can help a lot .
  • 7. reason 1 ENVIRONMENT
  • 8. Producing 1lb of wheat uses about 25 gallons of water but growing enough grain to feed 1 animal uses 2000-8500 gallons of water just for 1lb of meat.
  • 9. Producing meat takes amounts of energy HUGE that a 100-watt bulb uses in 10 days 1lb of beef requires the same amount of energy
  • 10. approximately 90% of all plant and animal species on Earth are found in the rainforests . roughly 80% of annual deforestation is associated with animal agriculture . According to the World Rainforest Report In Central America, 40% of all the rainforests have been cleared or burned down in the last 40 years,mostly for cattle pasture to feed the export market often for U.S. beef burgers . a vegetarian diet requires 1 / 7 the amount of land as a meat-inclusive diet .
  • 11. reason 2 WORLD HUNGER
  • 12. There is more than enough food in the world to feed the entire human population . So why are more than 840 million people still going hungry ? *
  • 13. 1 acre of pasture can produce about 165 pounds of beef that same 1 acre can produce 20,000 pounds of potatoes.
  • 14. if Americans ate less meat by only 10% , 12 million tons more of grain could feed humans instead .
  • 15. 60 million people who would otherwise starve to death each year would have enough to eat.
  • 16. reason 3 HEALTH
  • 17. The American Dietetic Association states that… ‘vegetarians have lower rates of death from heart disease, lower blood cholesterol levels, lower blood pressure, and lower rates of hypertension, type 2 diabetes, and prostate and colon cancer’
