20,000-40,000 liters of water to produce 1 kg of beef
Scientists have calculated that we would actually save more water by forgoing one pound of beef, or four hamburgers, than by not showering for at least six months.
Dr. David Archer: It's very clear that when you grow grain and then feed it to animals and then eat the animals, you lose 90% of the energy from the original grain,
and so not only can you feed fewer people on the agriculture that you have but as they discovered, it also requires a lot more fossil fuel energy to make that happen.
Supreme Master Ching Hai: We have to choose the vegetarian diet, no more animal breeding. Choose organic farming, helping each other, sharing the food that we have, because if we are vegetarian, all of us, we would have so much food to share with everybody:
no one will ever go to sleep hungry at night anymore. And then we will save a lot of time, energy, money to help them also combat disease and rebuild their lives.
Everything's possible, because there will be no more war, even with animals. Peace begins at home.
