I’m reading Kathy Freston’s book, Veganist, and I was struck by these quotes:
It takes many pounds of grain to create just one pound of meat – more than 16 to 1 in the case of beef. Put another way, a quantity of grain that could feed fifty people creates just one 8-ounce steak, a “small” steak by some standards.
If 1 in 10 people around the globe stopped eating animals, it would free up enough food to feed the 1 billion hungry.
