Environmental Destruction by Animal Agriculture

Three-fourths of all the grain grown in the US is devoted to feeding farmed-animals. In fact, there are 86 million acres planted with corn in the U.S. compared to 4.35 million acres planted with vegetables (a mere 5 percent of what's devoted to growing corn). This insane demand for cheap food has helped the expansion of factory farms that now produce almost all of the animal products in this country. This is causing unimaginable suffering to farmed animals and serious problems to our health. Moreover, the tremendous devastation caused by animal agriculture is one of the worst problems humanity is facing. From air, water and soil pollution to deforestation and global warming, industrial agriculture itself is responsible to a wide range of environmental problems.

We are failing miserably at our sacred role of being good stewards of God's Creation! We are causing misery everywhere and we still continue to fulfill our desires for taste, profit and power we no regard of what has been lovingly entrusted to us by our Creator. There is still time to turn things around and one way is to adopt a plant-based diet, which helps reduce the massive cruelty on farmed animals, the degradation of the environment and the production of animal products that sicken so many people every day.
