Recently I watched the Cowspiracy documentary on Netflix. I was shocked by certain statistics and facts that came to light. For people who havent seen the documentary yet it exposes animal agriculture as main polluter and contributor to global greenhouse gas emmision and as number 1 environmental problem.
#1 environmental problem: animal agriculture
The world needs to stop raising so many animals for food if we want to stop global warming. This is a shocking message that is ignored by many due to cultures and habits build around eating meat and dairy products. The answer to the environmental problem of the world is right in front of us. We all need to switch to a plant-based (vegan) diet as this is a less poluting and healthier option. Wheter you are a meat eater, vegetarian or already a vegan this topic deserves some serious attention. Take a look at the following infographic for interesting facts about the environmental damage that agriculture is causing.
