Vegan vs. Non-Vegan
The EPA estimates that nearly 95 percent of the pesticide residue in the typical American diet comes from meat, fish and dairy products.
By Going Vegan, you can reduce:
CO2 emissions by 1.5 tons per year
Methane and Nitrus Oxide, both which contribute to global warming
1 calorie of animal protein requires 11 times the amount of fossil fuel that 1 calorie of plant protein requires
1 lb. of wheat = 25 gallons of water
1 lb. of meat = 2,400 gallons of water
Raising animals for food uses 30% of the Earth's land mass, which is about equal to the size of Asia! (17 million sq. miles)
A vegan diet requires 300 gallons of H2O per day
A meat-eating diet requires 4,000 gallons per day
You would save more water by not eating a pound of meat than you would by not taking showers for 6 months
More than 260 million acres of US forest have been cleared to grow grain to feed farmed animals
The equivalent of 7 football fields of land are bulldozed
every minute to create room for farmed animals
20 Vegans can be fed on the amount of land it takes to feed 1 meat eater
According to Charles Darwin, humans evolved from herbivores (vegetarian animals)
It is argued that the human body is not designed to digest animal flesh/meat
50% of grain grown is fed to livestock
16 lbs of grain are needed to produce 1 lb. of meat
1 lb of meat only provides 1/3 of the daily caloric needs of 1 person
16 lbs of grain can feed 10 people per day
