1. Plants Would Feed Us All

By 2050 we might be twice as many people on the planet and scientists are looking for ways to produce enough food to feed everyone. It turns out that just by diverting 70 percent of crops used to feed animals and use them to directly feed humans, there would be enough food to feed four billion people.

Our growing human population is pushing us back to Godís original intent: to live in harmony with all creatures and eat a plant-based diet. The earlier we do it the less suffering and devastation we cause.


2. Famous Quote

"No matter what anybody tells you, words and ideas can change the world."
~ John Keating, Dead Poets Society


3. Eat Plant-Based to Help Restore the Environment

A recent study, published in Climatic Magazine, found that vegetarians contribute much less to climate change than meat-eaters, and vegans even less than vegetarians. The reason for these differences has to do with the methane and carbon dioxide emissions produced by livestock and the growing, transporting and storing food for the animals.

PPlease visit Vegetarians may be the best weapon against one of our generationís biggest threats.

We all have a part in helping restore the environment. And for this, choosing a plant-based diet is essential because producing food to feed humans invariable affects the environment. Eating is something we do every day and its implications are inescapable.


4. Bible Verse
(RSV) Matthew 5:7

"Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.Ē

How important this message is! Without mercy there cannot be peace on Earth. Mercy must be extended to all of Godís creatures, for if we show it only to humans we cannot possibly expect harmony to reign.


5. Factory Farming Pollutes Water

FFactory farms are polluting the planet. A clear example is the spread of dangerous phosphorus algal blooms in Lake Erie due to agricultural pollution from factory farms. Sadly, the result is that thousands of Ohio residents were left without safe drinking water. Please visit Farming practices and climate change at root of Toledo water pollution.

Of course, when Godís animals and the environment and not taken into account bad things happen. This is why, as stewards of Godís Creation, we should support industries that donít exploit Godís animals, that contribute to disease or destroy the environment.
