The best way to save the planet? Drop meat and dairy

Key statistic in the article and the paper it refers to is that “animal farming takes up 83% of the world’s agricultural land, but delivers only 18% of our calories.” If that’s not evidence enough, think about this as a comparison. A “plant-based diet cuts the use of land by 76% and halves the greenhouse gases” caused by food production. I think current farming practices are unsustainable and foods they produce are making us unhealthy. If you don’t believe me watch What the Health on Netflix to understand what I mean. It’s not a perfect documentary, it has it’s critics, but even if only half the things claimed made are true, it’s still a good argument for adopting a plant-based diet.
