UN Says Go Vegan

A new UN study asserts that eating a vegan diet is vital to saving the planet from climate change.

On Wednesday, the UN released a report stating that a global move toward a vegan diet is essential to save the world from hunger and the impacts of climate change. The report asserts that as the global population rises and the demand for food grows, the only sustainable model of eating is relying on plant-based foods. In addition to meeting population growth, the study also lists the damaging and far-reaching consequences of eating animals, concluding that factory-farming practices are as harmful to the environment as burning fossil fuels. Last year, the UN released a similar report declaring that food production would need to increase globally by 70 percent by 2050 to sustain the population.
