Vegetarianism Against World Hunger

If you want to put the welfare of humanity first, you can hardly do better than become vegan. Author of Animal Liberation, Peter Singer, states that if Americans were to reduce their meat consumption by only 10 % for one year, it would free at least 12 million tons of grain for human consumption. That is enough to feed 60 million people. If Americans stopped eating grain-fed beef altogether, the whole population of India could be fed.

Instead we feed grain, corn, and soybeans to livestock. It takes up to 16 pounds of grain and soybeans to produce 1 pound of beef. Ninety to 100% of the protein, carbohydrate, and dietary fiber of grains are lost through the cycling of grain through livestock.

Help world hunger by continually learning about and eating plant foods.
