beef industry has contributed to more American deaths than all the wars of this
century, all natural disasters, and all automobile accidents combined. If beef
is your idea of "real food for real people" you'd better live real close to a
real good hospital.
-- Neal Barnard, M.D.
you could see or feel the suffering you wouldn't think twice. Give back life.
Don't eat meat.
-- Kim Basinger
The American fast food diet and the meat eating habits of the wealthy around the
world support a world food system that diverts food resources from the hungry.
A diet higher in whole grains and legumes and lower in beef and other meat is
not just healthier for ourselves but also contributes to changing the world system
that feeds some people and leaves others hungry.
have been a vegetarian for about 10 years. And it really was due to the reading
that I did. And they explain so that you understand why it's important for the
planet's survival along with compassion for animals. It certainly made it much
easier for me. I lost weight really fast. My mother died from cancer so this is
all very personal to me. And I just would like the planet to be a better place.
And I think you'll find a vegetarian diet to be really incredible these days.
-- Linda Blair

as if they were vegetables, and that is not right. We have to change the way people

Truely man is the
king of beasts, for his brutality exceeds theirs. We live by the death of others:
we are burial places! I have from an early age abjured the use of meat, and the
time will come when men such as I will look on the murder of animals as they now
look on the murder of men.
~Leonardo da Vinci

"You have just dined, and
however scrupulously the slaughterhouse is concealed in the graceful distance
of miles, there is complicity."
2,000 pounds of grains must be supplied to livestock in order to produce enough
meat and other livestock products to support a person for a year, whereas 400
pounds of grain eaten directly will support a person for a year. Thus, a given
quantity of grain eaten directly will feed 5 times as many people as it will if
it is eaten indirectly by humans in the form of livestock products....
