Reduce Meat Consumption to Save the Planet

Scientists are urging to reduce meat consumption at least by half in order to prevent more environmental devastation. Contemporary animal agriculture has proven to be disastrous for the planet by contributing to extensive pollution, degradation of soil, deforestation, unsustainable use of water, land and fossil fuels; and of course emission of greenhouse gases. The United Nations Environmental Program stated: “Unless action is taken, increases in pollution and per capita consumption of energy and animal products will exacerbate nutrient losses, pollution levels and land degradation, further threatening the quality of our water, air and soils, affecting climate and biodiversity.”

Please visit Halve meat consumption, scientists urge rich world:
It’s imperative that people, especially those eating the typical Western diet laden with animal products reduce their meat intake significantly, or even better, give it up altogether. Environmental devastation, unimaginable suffering for God’s animals and the already too high rates of chronic diseases should be strong motivators to show compassion to farmed animals and stop eating them. After all, what is sustainable for our bodies is sustainable for the planet.
