Not surprisingly, this article in the Washington Post reveals
another major source of smog in Los Angeles, one of the country's most
highly air-polluted cities. According to a new study, dairy cows
produce much more smog than the millions of automobiles in the region.
This is because the ammonia emissions caused by dairy operations
combine with nitrogen oxides to form the small particles in smog,
leading to levels 100 times more intense than background levels caused
by daily road commuters.

Animal agriculture is so devastating that it's actually amazing
that the vast majority of people manage to continue eating animal
products virtually every day of their lives while going on with their
normal routines as if nothing wrong came out of their dietary choices.
However, I believe that the time has come and that the abundant
information on the negative effects of animal agriculture can no
longer be ignored. We are at a point at which each and everyone has to
take a stand: healing and restoration or suffering and devastation.
