Support National Meat Out Day!

Over 1.3 billion human beings could be fed each year from the grain and soybeans that go to livestock in the United States.


This means that the entire population of the United States could be fed
and there would still be enough food left over to feed another one billion people.

1 acre yields 165 lbs of %u201Cbeef%u201D or 20,000 lbs of potatoes.


8.8 million people (24,000 per day) die from hunger and hunger-related causes every year, 75% of those are children less than 5 years old. Nearly a billion people across the globe suffer from chronic hunger, which can cause stunted growth, poor vision, listlessness, and poor immune defenses. Globally, malnutrition largely results from the disproportionate distribution and waste of food resources. A major reason hunger is such a problem worldwide is the practice of non-sustainable animal agriculture %u2013 the farming and consumption of meat.


Meat and dairy farming uses billions of gallons of oil to run tractors, fuel ships and lorries (to move animal feed and animals), pump billions of gallons of water to irrigate fields and run slaughterhouses, power refrigeration units to prevent the corpses from decomposing, and to power sewage plants to try to clean up some of the pollution produced.


Livestock in the US produces approx. 30 times more excrement than human beings. While humans in the US have complex sewage systems to collect and treat human waste, there are no such systems on feedlots. As a result, most of this waste drains into our water sources.


A vegetarian diet requires about 300 gallons of water per day-if that much, while a meat-eating diet requires more than 4,000 gallons

This means a massive production of this scale that tourtures and murders of animal for food and fur is not only unethical, but it also causes serious environmental degradation.


Studies show that an increased amount of plant, and fruit based daily consumption has lower possibilities of getting all types of cancer. Not to mention can help in reducing the effects of Colitis and Type Two Diabetes as well as many other "illnesses."


By not eating meat for one day a week for a whole month, you can reduce your carbon footprint by almost 33 pounds. Stop eating meat for one day a week we can reduce our carbon footprint by one ton!

We the Undersigned urge you, the United States Law Makers and representatives to endorse a National Meat Out Day in the United States.
