Feeding the Future (Infographic)

On October 31, 2011, the world’s population hit 7 billion people. Our current food system is incapable of addressing the needs of so many, and it’s up to us to make a change in the way we eat.

If you’d like to put an end to world hunger, environmental destruction, and cruelty to animals, do your part and pledge to be veg today.

    Very well done. All the grains, corn and soy fed to mistreated animals inhumanely raised and slaughtered for meat could feed over 8 billion people. It’ high time for food animal liberation (from slaughterhouses) as a means to end human starvation.

      Fully agree. Why are we raising our children to eat meat, it’s not necessary.
      In my experience, tho limited, most children hate meat and don’t eat it when it is first introduced to them. I am a grandmother of 4

    we need to address the root cause of the problem, and that is the fraudulent banking system and the evil that runs it, the scam of World Trade, the UN and governments which are mere puppets of these evil banking cartels, then there will be plenty

    As a finnish veterinarian, I am very awared of ethical problems to food animals and also human starvation and also increased worldwide CO2 -emission. I deeply agree, that it is time to stop industrial food animal farming.
    The increased consumption of meat and meatproducts is also a healthcare-problem in populations, because of the increased true risk of cancers.

    It sounds ok at first glance but what do we do when all that is left is Monsanto products? Agenda 21 has begn here in CA, they are slowly getting people who live in the rural areas to abandon their homes. According to plan, they are going to try to make local farming more effort than it is worth, in walks in Monsanto I am sure, they have even created a new kind of salmon, mixed in with other natural salmon, 40 spawns later all you have are the genetically altered fish.

    80% of all corn now is Monsanto, if you don’t know what it is, check it out for yourself. They also control most of the soy market, it is disturbing hoy much of the food we buy contains soy. Something is wrong with this world, especially with the US government, we are watching everything the USA stands for erodng before our very eyes but it appears we are too lazy to do anything but complain and point fingers.

    Cancer cures have been discovered but kept from being published (these cures I refer to are simple vitamins, keeping your body alkaline and not acidic), whille the FDA allows Monsanto to line the shelves of our food supply.

    I am not saying Veg isn’t the best choice but unless you grow your own, chances are it’s going too kill you soon as well.

    Actually, the poster you have is incomplete. It states the differences between the amount of resources that goes in to food animals but not the value of what comes out. Meat, while a few humans eat more of it than they need, contains more calories per weight than vegetables, grains or legumes, or meat alternatives, and those calories are more accessable aswell. Animals were originally hunted and domesticated by early hominins, and the switch to eating meat allowed our intestines to shrink and our brains to grow, because less effort went into digesting vegetation.
    If you want further proof that eating meat is part of what our species is meant to do, look at our closest relatives. The most primates eat vegetation, sure, but they never pass up meat if they can get it. Chimpanzees hunt spider monkeys, Orangutans eat the occasional slow lorris, baboons catch flamingos, marmosets eat insects…
    Which, while in the western world, over-eating is our problem, humans actually require a small amount of meat in their diet. Humans in poor countries, and with a poor diet, require meat to aquire the calories to function.
    What we need in the Western world is not veganism, but to socially restrict our intake. Veganism is too extreme for most people and I think Peda is driving more people away from it than it realises. But if instead their standpoint was to reduce intake, they might get more support.
