Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!
Feed the World, Skip Animal Products

Once again we are reminded that the increasing production of and demand for animal products is driving more people to hunger. Researchers at the Institute on the Environment at the University of Minnesota found that 36 percent of the calories produced are used for animal feed and of those, 12 percent make their way to the human diet as meat and animal products. Another 4 percent of human-edible calories are used to produce biofuels.

It does not make any sense that about 1 billion people are malnourished while another billion have too much to eat. Consuming God’s animals drives the cost of edible-grain up, leaving the poor and the hungry unable to access plant-based foods, let alone animal products. If we want to see a world where everyone gets fed we need to eat lower on the food chain. Plant-based diets honor God’s Creation.
