“The global demand for meat and animals products is wreaking havoc on our planet. Find out how going vegan helps the environment.” From: www.peta.org.uk
GR: Great graphics and discussion. According to the article, a vegan diet releases about one-third as much CO2 as a heavy meat diet. Moreover, to produce the same amount of protein, beef requires 32 times more land than soybeans. Unfortunately, the article relates the savings to the greater number of people that Earth could support on vegan diets rather than relating the savings to the greater amount of land that could be left for wildlife and ecosystems.
