But it is also the source of mass deforestation, air and water pollution, in addition to species extinction. So when we choose to consume meat, we have an enormous impact on the world around us. Animal ag is an industrialized system with the purpose of feeding more people in a more efficient manner. Factory farms where hundreds of thousands of animals are raised for food are now the norm around the world. 26 percent of land worldwide is used for grazing livestock and 33 percent of land is used to grow livestock feed. That equals to about two-thirds of crop land used to grow food for livestock – only eight percent of crops are used to feed people directly. 80 percent of tropical deforestation stems from agriculture. Also 70 percent of the world’s freshwater resources are used for the agriculture. When you factor in the additional water used to hydrate animals and keep factory farm facilities clean, the water footprint of meat becomes colossal. This destructive industry occupies over half of the world’s arable land resources, uses the majority of freshwater, and drives greenhouse gasses. It causes rampant air and water pollution, land degradation, deforestation and is pushing countless species to the brink of extinction. By choosing to eat more plant-based foods you can drastically cut your carbon footprint. - Sara Farr. #animalrights #dairytruth #inhumane #injustice #babyanimals #cheese #veal #cream #vegetarian #milk #animals #dessert #food #bethechange #consciousliving #compassion #ethical #education #empathy #environmental #life #vegan #lifestyle #mercy #think #openyoureyes #climatechange #peace
