With over 65 billion animals being raised for meat every year 40% of the world’s grain production is fed to animals rather than feeding human beings. Almost 50% of Maize produced in the world is fed to animals. Maize is the staple food of Africa. Overgrazing and methane gas released by billions of animals is damaging our planet and causing global warming. With the world population expected to grow to 9.5 billion by 2050, mass starvation will take place unless meat consumption is replaced with a vegetarian diet.
Any wonder then that the world is rediscovering the merits of vegetarianism now!
