Primary Solution To The Global Food Crisis


Many scientists are saying, is to gradually convert from a meat diet to a vegetarian diet. " If we were vegetarians, we could banish hunger from this earth. Children would be born and grow up well-nourished, and they would live happier, heal their lives. Animals would be free to live. Meat is the mist uneconomical and inefficient food we can eat, the cost of one pound of meat protein is twenty times higher than equally nutritional plant protein. Only 10% of the protein and calories we feed to our livestock is recovered in the meat we eat, that is, 90% goes down the drain.Acres of land are used to raise livestock for food. These acres of land could be utilized far more productively if planted with grains, beans, and other legumes for humans to eat directly. For example, one acre used to raise to steer will provide only about one pound of protein, but this same land planted with soybeans will produce 17 pounds of protein. In other words, to eat meat, we need to used 17 times as much land as the amount needed to plant soybeans are more nutritious, contain less fat, and are free from the poisons of meat. United Nations has strongly recommended that people should cut down on their meat consumption.
