Wednesday, March 20, is International Meatout Day! It’s a day when vegans and vegetarians alike are encouraged to remember just why it’s so important to cut animal products from your diet—not only do you help animals, you also help the planet and your own health!
This trifecta of reasons should help show you exactly why you should cut out meat every day:
These numbers are HUGE, and that’s exactly why every person who leaves meat off his or her plate makes a difference—at EVERY MEAL!
For the Planet
We’re using up all our resources! Chickens, pigs, cows, and other animals raised for food are the primary consumers of water in the U.S. Raising animals for food also pollutes our water and air.
For Your Health
Eating red meat raises your cholesterol, which in turn makes you more susceptible to the number one cause of death in the U.S. today. Cholesterol is found ONLY in animal products.
So what do you think? Makes the choice pretty simple, right?
I grew up in the United States.My mom is white.My father is Latino. I love to save animals,even spiders.So don't kill my spiders..I love dogs,pigs,all creatures that the world has made for you and me-to protect and love/and NOT to kill. I believe in love & adventure. I believe in you have to live life to learn,LOVE life LOVE life..
Well, I love Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, CSI, Criminal Minds, Doctor Who and comic books (I mean, my profile pic IS Damian Wayne and Bat-Cow...). I'm kind of spazzy and I tend to ramble... I'm also an obsessive perfectionist...heh heh...a science/tech nerd and a vegetarian.
