A vegetarian diet saves the lives of countless animals.


A vegetarian diet saves the lives of countless animals.

An average person in the West consumes thousands of animals during their lifetime, the majority of which come from livestock farms.

According to data from the FAO (UN Food and Agricultural Organization), the average annual meat consumption worldwide, started from 20 kg of meat / person in 1961, and has doubled by 2014, to about 40 kg of meat / person.

In the rich western countries, the average consumption reached up to 80 kg of meat / person, leaving our fellow human beings in Africa to consume an average of 20 kg / person (while in some countries the consumption of meat is only 6 kg). At the same time, in China, which possesses a significant portion of the world’s population, total meat consumption has increased 15-times in the last 50 years.

The continuation of this trend will lead to a doubling of total meat consumption, from 300, to 600 million tons by 2050, and many more billions of animals being sacrificed on the altar of meat-eating. 

A “Friends of Earth” study estimated that 8.2 billion animals and poultry are slaughtered each year, in the US alone.

Chickens, turkeys, pigs, cows, sheep, and other animals are modern man’s usual victims, who throughout their short life are constantly facing “inhuman” living conditions, are limited to very small spaces and consume food only suitable for their fattening. On the website you can see in detail the living conditions of pigs, cows, chickens, and fish on contemporary farms.

A plant-based diet can reverse this picture and save many thousands of animals. Our decision to stop, or drastically reduce, the consumption of meat will determine the outcome.

For every meal that we replace with a plant-based one, we can imagine we are making a choice that reduces the cruel treatment of animals by modern man and helps protect the environment.

The good news is that the reversal of the trend has already begun. The FAO announced that 2019 was the second year, (after 1961), that brought a slight decrease in meat consumption, compared to the previous year, and expected a similar picture in 2020. If this is confirmed, it will be the first time in history that there is a decrease of meat-consumption for two years and perhaps mark the great turn of the world towards vegetarianism. After all, today everyone can achieve a great variety of taste and high nutritional value by preparing recipes that replace products of animal-origin with their plant-origin substitutes.
