It has bin a long time I saw a documentary which changed my mind. Cowspiracy is one of those documentary’s which gave me new insights.
Animal agriculture is responsible for 18 percent of greenhouse gas emissions, more than the combined exhaust from all transportation. Livestock covers 45% of the earth’s total land. As many as 2.7 trillion animals are pulled from the ocean each year. 1,100 Land activists have been killed in Brazil in the past 20 years. 1,000 gallons of water are required to produce 1 gallon of milk. Things I learned from this quest to create a healthier world made a deep impression on me. Especially the damage we do the world and ourself by eating meat. I was a 7 day meat eater. After this documentary I became an almost-no-meat-eater.
Meat is not needed for the humans with all the sources we have these days. Eating meat is ineffecient and creates a lot of waste we don’t need. If you really wanna do something for a better world. Eating less meat is the way to go.
