More reasons to go vegan 🌱
Because It’s the Only Way to End World Hunger
With the global population of humans over 7 billion—more than a billion of whom currently go hungry—the only way to produce enough food is, according to Worldwatch Institute, “to cut back sharply on meat consumption, because conversion of grazing land to food crops will increase the amount of food produced.” We use vast amounts of land, water, and other resources to grow grains and other plants to feed animals who are then used for food.
Because the Meat Industry Makes a Killing by Exploiting Workers
The money-hungry farmed-animal industry exploits poor people and immigrants (many of whom are undocumented). They work for low wages, and union organizing is notoriously difficult. Slaughterhouse work, in particular, is filthy and extremely dangerous—worker injuries are rampant, and dying on the job is a very real possibility. A Human Rights Watch researcher found that “[m]eatpacking is the most dangerous factory job in America,” and the Occupational Safety & Health Administration notes that the “Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports injury and illness rates for the Meat Packing Industry as 2½ times higher than the national average.
