Be A Vegetarian


It seems that originally we humans are vegetarian and we had no carnivore tooth – the canine tooth! Really we were not flesh eaters. During Ice age era, when most life forms perished, we had to survive with no other alternative except to eat the ice buried flesh of animals. But civilization made humans more refined and to realize the need of fellow creatures to co-exist. 
But still, unfortunately most of us went against the nature , our selfish overclocking attitude to produce farm animals for our food which really gone against us. 
Why should we respect the fellow creatures, be kind and a vegetarian?
Some facts which I would like to share herewith:
*Intensification in animal farming has displaced 1,000,000's of people from their traditional lands - eg. indigenous people in south & central America, native Americans in north America & crofters in Great Britain - this is continuing today. If they continue to clear American forests to raise cattle at the present rate, in 50 years there will be none left.
*Since 1945 in the UK we have lost 95% of flower meadows, 50% of ancient woodlands, 40% of heathlands, 50% of wet lands & 224,000 km of hedgerows all due to animal farming.
*Every year in the UK we feed our livestock enough food to feed 250,000,000 people while in the world 30,000,000 people die of starvation.
*If everyone went vegetarian up to 90% of land used for animal farming could be taken out of production & used to replant woodlands, leisure activities etc.
*The destruction of the rainforest by cattle farmers is destroying the lungs of the planet & reducing the worlds capacity to replenish our oxygen supply The 1,300,000,000 cattle in the world emit 60,000,000 tons of methane per year (methane is a greenhouse gas & leads to global warming)
*CFCs are released into the air from refrigeration units used to store decomposing flesh (meat), milk & butter - CFCs are destroy the ozone layer.
*The world health organization recommends a diet low in saturated fat, sugar, salt & with plenty of fiber - exactly what you get on a vegan/vegetarian diet. Farmed animals contain up to 50% saturated fat in their bodies. Vegetarians have a 20% lower rate of mortality from all causes  ( ie. they live longer & don't get sick as often)
