The Destructive Nature of Non-Vegetarianism

No other species has done more harm to the world more than us. Whether it be the way our chimneys breathe or the way we eat; we are destructing our beautiful planet in the worst way possible. Ironically, the most intelligent species on the face of the earth is the main reason for the ongoing destruction of the planet.

Go Vegan

Go Vegan

If we talk about the statistics, it has been found that around 56 billion farm-animals are killed for food every year and the meat consumption in the developing countries has doubled since 1980. Surprisingly, these staggering figures do not even include the seafood as it is measured in tonnes.

Paul Farmer, American anthropologist and physician said “The idea that some lives matter less is the root of all that is wrong with the world.” His words could not be truer. Just because of the fact that we are intellectually superior to all the other animals in the world does not make us the ultimate bosses of the planet. The consumption of meat has adverse effects on our bodies as well as our entire eco-system

That’s because the very nature of the non-veg. meal is hostile, on the micro-level as well as macro-level. On micro-level, numerous studies have shown that consumption of red meat leads to increase in the risk of increase the risk of colorectal cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and other chronic diseases. A study from Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) researchers has found that red meat consumption is associated with an increased risk of total, cardiovascular, and cancer mortality (Harvard School of Public Health, 2012). “Our study adds more evidence to the health risks of eating high amounts of red meat, which has been associated with type 2 diabetes, coronary heart disease, stroke, and certain cancers in other studies,” said lead author An Pan, research fellow in the Department of Nutrition at HSPH. Red meat is rich in proteins, vitamins and minerals but choosing more healthful source of protein can reduce the risk of getting chronic diseases and pave the way for a healthier lifestyle.

On a macro-level, the effects of non-veg. diets are even more devastating. According to a study, it has been found that the production of one calorie of animal protein requires more than ten times the fossil fuel input as a calorie of plant protein (Pimentel, David; Pimentel, Marcia, 2003). The animals also need humongous amount of water to be raised. It takes more than 2,400 gallons of water to produce 1 pound of meat and only 25 gallons to produce one pound of wheat (Keith, 1991). Moreover, the animal killing is causing deforestation in the Amazon rain-forest. From the above given examples, it is not that hard to imagine for how long our planet can sustain the detrimental force that is non-vegetarianism.

What is the solution then? The answer is simple ‘Veganism’. Vegan diet can not only help us be healthy but also help us save the planet. How exactly? Please find out on next article here

  1. Ηi there, I enjoy reading through youг post.
    I like to write a little comment to support you.

  2. I was checking out your post and it couldn’t come at a better time. I have danced with vegetarianism on and off for a year. This morning I woke up to the worst headache and I SWEAR it’s due to yeast from a chunk of bread that I ate last night (I usually stay away from bread). I’m actually detoxing today through homemade juice and apple cider vinegar.

  3. Hi, afterr reading this awqesome article i am as
    well cheerful to share my familiarity here with friends.

  4. These are genuinely fantastic ideas in on the topic of blogging.
    You have touched some pleasant factors here. Any way keep up wrinting.

  5. I think you have tapped into a “TREND”, that of “VEGANISM”, great writing, and I love that you added supporting studies. I appreciate your info re our health and its impact on the earth, could you possibly look at the cost of being vegan as opposed to a meat eater, and possibly provide a comparison on a shopping bill. Great Job
