It is pretty mind-blowing when you come to realize how resource heavy and inefficient animal agriculture industry is. I ask myself everyday, how couldn’t I have realized this sooner? How couldn’t I just stopped and thought for a second? Everything is so clear now.

HOW BAD FOR THE PLANET IS EATING MEAT? 🌏
”Meat is an inefficient source of calories. It accounts for 17% of global calorific intake, but uses twice that amount of land, water and feed.
Livestock also damages the environment. It accounts for between 8% and 18% of greenhouse-gas emissions, depending on how you account for changes in land use (when the Amazon is cut down for pasture, carbon emissions rise). Roughly a fifth of all the world’s pasture has been degraded by overgrazing. Livestock uses water inefficiently: you need about 15,000 litres of water to produce a kilo of beef but only 1,250 litres for a kilo of maize or wheat. And animals form a significant reservoir of diseases that affect humans; avian flu, the best known example, is far from an isolated case: 60% of human diseases are shared with animals and three quarters of new infectious diseases of people were first found in animals.” - The Economist
