How meat contributes to global warming

"According to a report by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), our diets and, specifically, the meat in them cause more greenhouse gases carbon dioxide (CO2), methane, nitrous oxide, and the like to spew into the atmosphere than either transportation or industry."

Producing beef has a surprising environmental cost: it releases prodigious amounts of heat-trapping greenhouse gases.

So what do we do to prevent further global warming and the destruction of our planet? The reality is our best solution is for a Vegan based economy. Ofcourse our animal activists have enough educating to do to not only explain how we are abusing our earths sacred animals, we are ruining our planet by mass producing meat.

Protein is the main choice for meals but the truth about protein is that many people don't need as much as they are taking in. Infact with the over consumption of meat and eggs, people are getting too much protein. Adult women need approxiamately 46 grams of protein per day and the average adult man needs about 56 grams of protein. This amount is simple to fulfill by a variety of more healthy methods.

As of 2015 "The World Health Organisation has classified processed meats – including ham, salami, sausages and hot dogs – as a class 1 carcinogen which means that there is strong evidence that processed meats cause cancer. Red meat, such as beef, lamb and pork has been classified as a 'probable' cause of cancer."

So the many reasons to change the food source of the world to more sustainable options. You can substitute meat for delicious meatless options.

Black Beans, Pinto Beans
