If you had to sit down and watch any factual documentary about the environmental crisis facing the world today Cowspiracy is a top choice. Backed by Executive Producer and Oscar winner Leonardo DiCaprio, this educational video will showcase all the reasons you should adopt a more natural vegetable based diet ASAP.
Basically animal agriculture is taking up too much forest space to grow crops to feed all the cows/animals we humans eat. Since humans can get all the protein they need from plant based foods, and the whole ‘eat meat for protein’ marketing-hoax has been exposed – there is nothing stopping you from adopting more vegetables, crops, roots, fruits, legumes, seeds, soy, rice, whey (the list goes on) into your diet right now in order to do your part to save the environment. Not to mention that eating a animal based SAD diet will give you cancer and heart disease pronto.
“Vegetarians tend to be leaner than meat eaters, even those who skin their chicken and trim the fat off their steak; and, in general, leaner persons tend to be healthier. Being lean does not mean being skinny. It means having a low percentage of body fat.”
