• One day the world will look upon research upon animals as it now looks upon research on human beings.
    -Leonardo Da Vinci (Leonardo the artist created the Mona Lisa and The Last Supper.)

wastelandA major 2006 report by the United Nations summarized the devastation caused by the meat industry. Raising animals for food, the report said, is “one of the top two or three most significant contributors to the most serious environmental problems, at every scale from local to global. The findings of this report suggest that it should be a major policy focus when dealing with problems of land degradation, climate change and air pollution, water shortage and water pollution and loss of biodiversity. Livestock’s contribution to environmental problems is on a massive scale".
