  • www.fishinghurts.com/fishFarms.aspAquaculture is a billion-dollar industry and is growing 3 times faster than land-based animal agriculture. Land-based farms raise thousands of fish in ponds, pools, or concrete tanks. Ocean-based aquafarms are situated close to shorelines, and fish in these farms are packed into net or mesh cages. All fish farms are rife with pollution, disease, and suffering, regardless of their location.Aquafarms squander resources—it can take 5 pounds of wild-caught fish to produce just 1 pound of farmed fish—and pollute the environment with tons of fish feces, antibiotic-laden fish feed, and diseased fish carcasses. Fish on aquafarms spend their entire lives in cramped, filthy enclosures, and many suffer from parasitic infections, diseases, and debilitating injuries. Conditions on some farms are so horrendous that 40 percent of the fish may die before farmers can kill and package them for food.
  • Since the 960s, the demand for meat has tripled while 2 million family farms have shut down.John Robbins, The Food Revolutionhttp://skeptoid.com/episodes/4047http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Factory_farming

  • It took nature millions of years to form the great Ogallala aquifer. This is the largest body of fresh water on Earth, and it lies under the great American grain belt. It is one of the reasons the U.S. Has the world’s largest food supply.At present, more than 13 trillion gallons of water are taken from Ogallala every year, with the vast majority used to produce beef.More water is taken from Ogallala for beef production that is used to grow all the fruits, and vegetables in the entire country.At current rates, it’s only a matter of time before wells go dry in KS, NE, OK, CO, NM and portions of these states become inhabitable. The U.S. Will lose its grain surplus and its ability to provide security for its people.
  • Water in the USA to raise animals for food: 50% of all water usedYou save more water by not eating a pound of meat than you do by not showering for six months!A vegan diet requires only 300 gallons of water per day, while a typical meat-eating diet requires more than 4,000 gallons of water per day.
  • Report by the U.S. Senate Agricultural Committee:“Untreated and unsanitary, bubbling with chemicals and disease-bearing organisms...[livestock waste] goes onto the soil and into the water that many people will...ultimately drink. It’s poisoning rivers and killing fish and sickening people. ... Catastrophic cases of pollution, sickness, and death are occurring in areas where livestock operations are concentrated. ... Every place where the animal factories have located, neighbours have complained of falling sick.”
  • The USDA’s “Wildlife Services” kills more than 1.5 million wild animals annually that might compete with livestock. This is done at public expense to protect the private interests of cattlemen.Grazing is one of the leading causes of species endangerment in the U.S.The #1 factor in elimination of tropical rain forests in Latin America is cattle-grazing.Livestock uses 1/3 of the earth’s entire land surface, mostly permanent pasture and 1/3 of the global arable land is used to producing feed for livestock.
  • Forests cleared to create new pastures is a major driver of deforestation. 70% of former forests in the Amazon have been turned over to grazing. Amount of greenhouse-warming carbon gas released by driving a typical American car, in one day: 3KgAmount released by clearing and burning enough Costa Rican rainforest to produce beef for one hamburger: 75 KgTime before the Costa Rican rainforest would be gone if it were cleared to produce enough beef for the people of Costa Rica to eat as much beef, per person, as the people of the USA: 1 YearWhat one hamburger produced by clearing forest in India would cost if the real costs were included in the price rather than subsidized: $200Imports of beef by the U.S. from southern Mexico and Central America during the past 25 years has been the major factor in the loss of about half of the tropical forests there – all for the sake of keeping the price of hamburger in the U.S. about a nickelless than it would have been otherwise.
  • Imports of beef by the U.S. from southern Mexico and Central America during the past 25 years has been the major factor in the loss of about half of the tropical forests there – all for the sake of keeping the price of hamburger in the U.S. about a nickelless than it would have been otherwise.Number of bird species in one square mile of Amazon rainforest: More than exist in all of North America Life forms destroyed in the production of onefast-food hamburger made from rainforest beef: Members of 20 to 30 different plant species, 100 different insect species, and dozens of bird, mammal, and reptile species
  • U.N. Report Warns:Rearing cattle produces more greenhouse gases than driving cars, UN report warns.The livestock sector accounts for 9% of CO2, 65% of nitrous oxide, and 37% methane produced from human-related activities. Both methane (23 times) and nitrous oxide (296 times) are considerably more potent greenhouse gases than carbon dioxide.The environmental costs per unit of livestock production must be cut by 50%, just to avoid the level of damage worsening beyond its present level.
  • Number of people that can be fed with whose food energy needs can be met by the food produced on 2.5 acres of land if the land is producing:
  • AdvertizingWhere most Americans get their information about foods: AdvertizingAmount spent annually by McDonald’s on advertizing its products: $800 millionAmount spent annually by the National Cancer Institute promoting fruits and vegetables: $1 million
  • Blood PressureMost common problem for which people go to doctors in the USA: High Blood PressureIncidence of high blood pressure in meat eaters compared to vegetarians: 300%Patients who are able to completely discontinue use of medication after adopting high-fiber vegetarian diet: 58%
  • It takes 7-10 Kg of grain to produce 1 Kg of BeefAs meat consumption worldwide increases, grain prices increase, putting 2.5 billion living on less than $2 per day at risk.“In a world where an estimate 1 in every 6 people goes hungry every day, the politics of meat consumption are increasingly heated, since meat production is an inefficient use of grain – the grain is used more efficiently when consumed directly by humans. Continued growth in meat output is dependent on feeding grains to animals, creating competition for grain between affluent meat eaters and the world’s poor.”
  • Too much protein is as harmful as too little, and is linked with shorter life expectancy, increased cancer and heart disease risk, widespread obesity and diabetes, osteoporosis, kidney stress, and bad digestion. High protein-diets bring about temporary weight-loss, at the expense of overall health, and people quickly regain weight once they return to a normal diet.A varied vegetarian diet with a balance of protein, fats & carbohydrates, and adequate calorie intake provides more than enough protein.Complete animal protein is not superior to complete protein from more than one plant source – they give the same result in different ways.Protein from plant sources doesn't include excess calories from fat, toxic residues, or an overabundance of protein, which stresses the kidneys .

    13. What about Wild Fish?Wild Fish have lost a lot of their nutritional value because of environmental pollution.They are commonly intoxicated withPCBs, DDT, dioxin, mercury, and other toxic chemicals. By 2050, there will be virtuallynothing left to fish from the sea. Today’s commercial fishing vessels use dragnets that aremiles long and devastate marine life and ocean beds. For 1 Kg of fish, 12.5 Kg ofmarine life is hauled up with the fish and discarded.
    14. What aboutFamily Farms? From 1967 to 2002, about 90% of farms in America shut down - unable to compete with mega factory farms. Today, just 4 companies produce 81% of cows, 73% of sheep, 57% of pigs and 50% of chickens.
    15. What’s inyour Meat? Antibiotics Steroids Pesticides HormonesMeat contains on average 13 times more pesticides than vegetables 80% of all antibiotics sold in USA go to farm animals
