Article in USA newspaper links global food scarcity to meat eating. Journalist Bill Berry’s article in Wisconsin’s “The Capital Times” focuses on both the moral and environmental implications of eating meat. He points out that rising food prices and global hunger have more to do with feeding a large portion of global grain stocks to animals than converting food crops to biofuel.

Mr. Berry concluded with a quote from the US Department of Agriculture: “The types and amounts of food an individual chooses to eat not only affect his or her well-being, but also have implications for society as a whole." Hats off to you, Mr. Berry and The Capital Times, for raising awareness about the effect of eating meat on our society and environment. May we adopt a plant-based diet for our health as well as the planet’s.
