I am here, not only as a physician, but a voice in this most important, much needed crusade to put an end to this entrenched self destructive way of living in America. Each individual has to realize, first and foremost, is what the hell they are putting in their mouths and WHERE it originates. This is so elementary, yet most people don’t give it one thought! It will solve so many problems on a large scale if we can educate everyone on this simple, yet crucial task. We MUST spread the word NOW and be heard. It IS time!
Here are some sobering facts:
1.1 billion people in the world are suffering from hunger.
6 million children in the world will die from starvation this year. Difficult to fathom when we see all of the obesity on our streets huh.
Unfortunately, 70% of all of the grain we harvest is fed to livestock. This alone, could solve the world’s hunger problem.
We raise, feed, water, and kill 70 BILLION animals each year for food. That is 10 times as many people as we have on earth!
Our choice of eating animals and their products as food IS the driving force behind the demand for raising livestock and fishing industry. We MUST change this destructive habit. The power is with the people.
As Dr Richard Oppenlander illuminates in his book, "Comfortably Unaware", if you examine the big picture of global warming and climate change, the raw source can be traced back to one thing…and one thing only: Our demand for meat and animal products.
Saving civilization is not a spectator sport.
