Not only is it an inefficient use of our resources (it takes 16 lbs of grain to produce 1 lb of edible beef, iirc), but the nitrous oxide that contributes to destroying our ozone layer is mostly coming from agriculture.

Livestock production worldwide generates as much CO2 as all transportation. Per pound of food livestock production uses several times the precious arable land than plant food production does. We're vegans plus 4 oz. of wild caught fish 3 times a week for B12, Omega 3. Sardines and wild Alaskan salmon are not endangered at the moment. No pesticides, no fertilizer, no antibiotics, no GMO. Need "meat" for protein? Gorilla's have 98% of our DNA, eat green leaves, fruits, bamboo shoots, and way stronger than any of us. Need dairy for calcium? With no dairy at all my wife recently tested high normal on calcium and magnesium, normal on phosphorous.
Very little of that grain that is produced by farmers goes towards supporting livestock, it goes to feeding people!
That is very untrue. Livestock no longer eat grass, they eat feed made from food crops. To produce enough meat to feed one person, a farm animal must eat enough grain to feed five people.
All the food that is eaten by cattle is an issue, but there burps and farts are a bigger issue. Look up Meat The Truth on you tube.
Eat more veggies:) actually the digestive system of cattle is not designed for a diet of corn consumption. The like to eat grass and clover. Corn is used to fatten them up fast so the production is always high. Lets face it, we need to educate people about nutrition and where their food comes from
I recently have resolved to be a vegan. The way our food is mass produced and the the crulty the animals suffer is beyond evil. We love our dogs and cats and would never think of doing these things to them.
