Environmental costs of industrial agriculture and animal husbandry

Once upon a time, the consumption of meat a good source of nutrition, since the use of hormones, pesticides and methods of mass production was still unknown. A family gathered and processed their own livestock. Each morning, large golden eggs in potholes that have been treated with love and collected fed pesticide-free grain healthy.

Factory farms to use available today, but in the process they left an ecological costs that future generations will be forced to condemn. Raising animals for food requires more than half the water in the U.S. each year and one-third of all raw materials, including fossil fuels. This industry is the biggest polluter of our waters and is directly responsible for 85 percent of soil erosion. Depending on the flesh of our country continues to poisoning and depleting our land, water and air.

Of all areas in the United States, 87 percent is used for the rearing of animals. That 45 percent of the total mass of the United States.

Methane is one of four greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming. The world's 1.3 million cows produce a fifth of all methane emitted into the atmosphere.

The rise of animals for food causes more water pollution in the United States than in any other industry because animals for food 20 times the excrement of the entire human population increased-230, 000 £ per second.

Used by all raw materials and fossil fuels in the United States, more than one third is used to raise animals for food supply.
Tropical forests are being destroyed at a rate of 125,000 square kilometers per year. The main cause of deforestation in animal breeding for food.

The inhumane treatment of animals for human consumption increased costs of collection and processing of animals for human consumption is too high. Make a commitment to reduce or eliminate meat from your diet, and learn to live plant foods supply the natural environment. The animals and their conscience is better for him.
