Could Veganism End World Hunger?
It is easy to feel helpless in the fight against malnutrition when you hear about the 925 million* men, women and children who are facing this devastating crisis today. But there is something you can do about it, and it begins with what you choose to put our your own dinner plate.
This video from the Evolve! Campaign summarizes some startling facts from 2010 about how a plant-based diet and vegan choices could END world hunger. While this may sound too good to be true, you may be surprised to find out that the amount of grain produced globally today is enough to feed the world TWICE over, but instead the majority of it is being fed to farmed animals!
If you’re concerned about animal rights, water conservation, clean air and health then you may already be on the road to becoming vegan – so why not take five minutes and find out how veganism could end world hunger?
*This video is from last year and states that 840 million people were going hungry at the time it was made. New statistics have been released to date demonstrating that over 925 million people are now going hungry and 55% of the 12 million childhood deaths recorded each year are due to malnutrition.
