Plants Are Healthy

Plant-Based Diets

The president of the American College of Cardiology, Dr. Kim Williams has been a longtime advocate of plant-based diets for heart disease prevention. Plant-based diets have also been proven to lower blood sugar levels in diabetics more than the diets from the American Diabetes Association, American Heart Association, and National Cholesterol Education Program.

Animal agriculture is responsible for up to 91% of Amazon destruction.

Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

Animal agriculture water consumption ranges from 34-76 trillion gallons annually and is responsible for 20%-33% of all fresh water consumption in the world today. Animal agriculture is the leading cause of species extinction, ocean dead zones, water pollution, and habitat destruction. A farm with 2,500 dairy cows produces the same amount of waste as a city of 411,000 people. Today, livestock covers 45% of the earth’s total land. The best and most effective way to reduce your carbon footprint is to eat a plant-based diet. Every effort counts, even if you’re just starting out with doing meatless Mondays.
