Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!
The Air We Breath

Not surprisingly, this article in the Washington Post reveals another major source of smog in Los Angeles, one of the country's most highly air-polluted cities. According to a new study, dairy cows produce much more smog than the millions of automobiles in the region. This is because the ammonia emissions caused by dairy operations combine with nitrogen oxides to form the small particles in smog, leading to levels 100 times more intense than background levels caused by daily road commuters.

Animal agriculture is so devastating that it's actually amazing that the vast majority of people manage to continue eating animal products virtually every day of their lives while going on with their normal routines as if nothing wrong came out of their dietary choices. However, I believe that the time has come and that the abundant information on the negative effects of animal agriculture can no longer be ignored. We are at a point at which each and everyone has to take a stand: healing and restoration or suffering and devastation.
