How Your Diet is Contributing to Climate Change

Did you know your diet can change the world? The climate and environment are being destroyed by the very acts of human negligence, greed for meat, and insatiable need for more material goods. If people do not start changing their lifestyle and actions, our oceans can be devoid of fish by 2050,

and climate will change dramatically. Most of us live in a bubble where life is good. We have an abundance of commodities and goods, and food…but at what cost to the world?  After watching what I would say is the most important documentary ever made, Cowspiracy truthfully documents with hard proof facts the horrible destruction that mankind has done to Mother Earth.

Did you Know?

  • Livestock and their byproducts account for at least 51% of all worldwide greenhouse gas emissions
  • Livestock is responsible for 65% of all emissions of nitrous oxide – a greenhouse gas 296X more destructive than carbon dioxide and stays in the atmosphere for 150 years
  • One hamburger requires 660 gallons of water to produce – the equivalent of 2 months worth of showers..

and the list goes on.

As you can see, animal farming is the #1 most detrimental industry to our environment.  If environmental and climate destruction isn’t bad enough, look at the harmful effects of a meat-based diet.  A high meat diet has been associated with almost every chronic health condition including heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, autoimmune disease and more.
