As if the first 2 reasons you should go to a plant-based diet (A.K.A. 95% Vegan) weren’t good enough, let me add a power-packed third reason:
Help Save The Planet
The Long Shadow of Livestock
This may come as a surprise to you, but the fact is, raising livestock (animals) for food comes at a great cost to the planet. It has a substantial impact on air pollution, global climate change, water and soil erosion, and the reduction of biodiversity. The carbon emissions from raising animals for food impacts the planet at least as much as all forms of transportation, and perhaps even more.
Livestock production accounts for 30% of the land on the planet. As the population grows, unless we start eating a more plant-based diet, there will not be enough land to grow enough livestock to feed the population as it stands right now. [Yes, our current diet can ultimately lead to our own destruction, just like a plague can.]
The livestock sector is putting a huge strain on our fresh water supply. In fact, it is forecasted that by the year 2025, 64% of the world’s population will live in water-stressed basins. Yikes!
There is no doubt that by going 95% plant-based (A.K.A. 95% vegan), we could make a huge contribution to the health of the planet, and ultimately for ourselves. If you would like to read more on the subject of how raising livestock is destroying the planet, I invite you to read the report, Livestock’s Long Shadow, environmental issues and options.
