Why Be A Vegetarian

"Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet!" -Albert Einstein

Dangers of Animal Agriculture & Eating Meat:

1. Uses tons of grain that could be fed directly to people
2. Uses tons of fresh water that could be used to grow healthy food
3. Creates tons of urine and feces that ruin our lakes, rivers and drinking water
4. Creates about 18 percent of greenhouse gas emissions
5. Contributes to obesity, diabetes, heart disease and cancer
6. Causes epidemic diseases
7. Contributes to the creation of antibiotic resistant "super bugs"
8. And is heavily subsidized by our tax dollars.

As a species, we are faced with complicated and seemingly intractable problems. And then we're faced with animal agriculture.

Famine could end. Fresh water could become clean and more abundant. Deaths from cancer and heart disease and diabetes and obesity could be reduced. And zoonotic (animal based) diseases could be largely reduced.

It really is that simple.

We've done hard things in the past. We've ended slavery. We've given everyone the right to vote. We've passed legislation prohibiting children from working in factories. We're even moving towards a time when cigarette smoking will be seen as a foul, distant memory.

We can do this. We have to. Our reliance on animal agriculture is literally killing us and ruining our climate and our planet.
