Burgers to blame for most of the global warmingJuly 17th, 2008 - 3:22 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, July 17 (ANI): A report by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) has stated that 18% of greenhouse gases are coming from animal agriculture meat and dairy, used in making burgers.
According to ENN (Environmental News Network), the 408-page report states that what many people are eating is contributing more to global warming than the entire transportation sector of the United States.
The report said that the Earth, and all who reside here, are in grave peril like never before.
It added that everybody has a moral, ethical responsibility and imperative to face up to the truth, even if it means changing their daily habits.
There has never been a time in mans existence when it is so critical to move away from the Standard American Diet (SAD) and embrace an Earth-friendly and sustainable plant-based diet a vegan diet, the report said.
By switching to a plant based diet, mankind will instantly eradicate nearly 20% of the global warming problem.
If that isnt amazing enough, this simple yet profound change would greatly curtail further deforestation, top soil erosion and even the ever-worsening tainting of the worlds waters.
Also, high cholesterol and heart disease, hypertension, obesity, adult-onset diabetes, kidney disease and many cancers would virtually disappear.
But, the great news is that people dont have to give up on eating burgers, they just have to make them from plant-based ingredients.
Veggie burgers have the taste, smell and texture of the traditional burger, but without the harmful ramifications. (ANI)
