I read somewhere that:
-70% of U.S. grain productions is fed to livestock.
-5 million acres of rain forest are cut down every year in South and Centeral America alone to create cattle pasture.
-Animal agriculture is a cheif contributor to water pollution.
-Pounds of edible product that can be produces on an acre of prime land: 20,000 of apples; 30,000 of carrots, 40,000 of potatoes, 50,000 of tomatoes, 250 of beef.
-20 vegans could live off the same ammount of land that it takes to feed one meat eater.
So, as if this wasn't enough to make you think about over population and meat eating.
