The world is at crisis point. We cannot keep eating the way we are and expect long term survival. From an environmental perspective and from a human health perspective. We are rapidly using the Earths precious resources to produce food that is not good for our health, and producing this unhealthy food is devastating our planet too.
Something needs to change.
The fact is, we produce enough plant food to feed the world, yet most of the worlds population does not have enough to eat. Our aquafers are running out of water. This precious food and water are used to produce low quality, chemical filled, cruelly raised factory farmed meat and dairy, which is heavily subsidised by governments, meaning that as a population we are eating way too much of it, and the effects on our health are plain to see.
We have advanced medical science, cutting edge technology and more knowledge than ever before, yet we are sicker than ever before, predominantly with preventabe diet and lifestyle related illnesses such as diabetes, obesity, heart disease and cancer. All of these diseases can be linked to eating a diet too high in factory farmed meat and dairy, as well as sugar.
Our chosen way of eating is killing us and our beautiful planet.
So what's the solution?
To reduce the amount of animal-based foods in our diets and increase the amount of plant-based foods.
The effects of a vegan diet, or even a diet low in animal products and high in plants, has been scientifically proven to prevent and even reverse these diseases. A recent study
has shown that if enough people switched to a vegan diet, we could actually reverse climate change!
In addition, a plant-based diet can aid:
- Weight loss
- Ideal weight maintenance
- Energy levels
- Skin conditions such as acne, eczema and psoriasis
- Hormonal balance
- Digestive system function
- Immune system function
- Concentration and memory
