Vegetarian Diet to Save Two Billion People
Water is the source of life. Everything that we eat and produce takes some percentage of water usage. Some products that we consume require more water usage then others. Animal products are one of the biggest water consumers. To be able to produce one pound of beef we use 1,799 gallons of water. Currently, humans are getting 20 percent of their protein from animal products.
The human population is growing everyday. By 2050 there will be 9.1 billion people living around the world. Currently the world is facing water shortages. With the current world’s food production there will not be enough food to feed 2 billion more people due to water shortages. The world has to change its food consuming culture immediately. Some scientists believe that by reducing by five percent animal consumption we will be able to save 2 billion people from hunger.
You can eat vegetarian not only to live in good health but also to save humans.
You can take class action by only changing your eating culture.
