1. Raising God’s Animals for Food is Devastating for the Planet
The animal agriculture industry is destroying the planet. It
contributes to global warming, loss of biodiversity and devastation,
threatening the livelihood of not only humans but other species.
Moreover, the health issues related to eating animal products are
exacerbating everywhere in the world as more countries adopt a Western
Industrial Livestock Production Key Threat to World's Forest and
Raising God’s animals for food is the cause
for the major environmental and health problems, aside from being the
root of unimaginable violence. The solution to such enormous problems
seem unattainable to many; however, looking deep into these problems
we might see that the solution is an easy one: showing compassion to
all creatures and transitioning to a plant-based diet.
2. This Week’s Famous Quote
Every day forty thousand children die in the world for lack of
food. We, who overeat in the West, who are feeding grains to animals
to make meat, are eating the flesh of these children.
~ Thich Nhat Hanh
3. Eggs Move
Aside! Eggless Eggs Are Here
Eggless eggs have been hatched.
Hampton Foods, one of Bill Gate’s investments, continues to improve
their eggless eggs. As the human population grows, so does the demand
for animal products. According to the U.N.'s Food and Agriculture
Organization by 2030 the demand for eggs is expected to climb to 38
million tons. Replacing eggs with a non-animal product substitute
could effectively easy the burden on the environment and reduce hunger
around the world.
Why Bill Gates is Investing in Chicken-Less Eggs:
production is probably the cruelest industry among those that exploit
God’s animals. Egg laying hens and their chicks are egregiously abused
from birth to death with sheer merciless.
The egg industry
also uses tremendous amounts of natural resources and pollutes the
environment. From every perspective, supporting the egg industry shows
disrespect to God, to His/Her creation and to us.
This Week’s Bible Verse
In Genesis 2:15, God
instructed Adam to “till” and “keep” the Garden of Eden, and by
analogy we may see caring for God’s Creation as our sacred task. The
typical meat eater’s diet can require up to 14 times more water and 20
times more energy than that of a vegetarian. Indeed, current use of
land, water, and energy is not sustainable; resource depletion
threatens to cause hardships for humankind this century.
5. Fish Production
Hits Record High
According to the UN’s Rome-based Food and
Agriculture Organization (FAO) the total world production of fish will
hit a record high by the end of this year with over 160 million metric
World production of fish will hit record level, says report:
The massacre of God's fish, the devastation of the oceans and the
abuse our fellow humans endure because of the demand for fish are
reaching unimaginable proportions. Clearly, this goes against honoring
God's Creation and our true essence of love.
