Business Insider Gives 7 Reasons to Go Meat-Free

The industry news source shows how the animal agriculture industry is hurting our health, polluting the environment, and contributing to world hunger.

Business Insider recognized the significant toll that factory farming is taking on the population and the planet in a recent online article “7 Charts that Could Convince You to Become A Vegetarian.” The news source presented various graphs and infographics that showed how the animal agriculture industry is affecting world hunger, contributing to water scarcity, and emitting harmful greenhouse gases. The news source also cited startling environmental statistics such as how it takes 77 times as much water to produce one kilogram of beef as it does to produce one kilogram of potatoes. While the news source did recognize that not everyone would go veg, it did recommend that readers at least limit their meat consumption.
