About: Cowspiracy is Bull
Vegans eat animal fat in everything they consume. Every food is made with animal fat for preservatives, no matter what they tell you, it is in ALL food, just not as much in vegan type foods. The only way to avoid animal fat and eat 100% healthy is, grow your own organic food.
Vegetarians say beef production requires 2500 gallons of water per pound of beef. This is quoted without supporting evidence.
However, the beef industry estimates it takes 435 gallons of water for a pound of beef.
Even better, pasture raised beef requires just 30 gallons of water....... that is the amount you use in a shower.
Compare that to a pound of bread which requires 500 gallons of water.
Cows have always roamed grasslands, they have always farted, they have always munched on grass. It is one of the healthiest things for the soil and completely natural and good for the planet.
Your choice of video title is questionable.
noone addresses the Vegan paradox.
A vegan is in the jungle and witnesses a lion hunting a gazelle. He can prevent the lion from killing the gazelle but that would result in the lion starving to death making him guilty of killing the lion. If he allows the lion to kill the gazelle even though he has the power to prevent it, he is guilty of killing the gazelle. So we are to believe one of 4 things. 1, Humans don't need to eat meat because B12 is optional. or 2. Killing an animal for food is only cruel for humans but not for any other animals or 3. vegans don't have any power to prevent carnivors from killing or 4. Carnivorous animals can be trained to be vegan.
Wish you used kilograms and liters instead of pounds and gallons. Didn't understand the significance of those numbers at all
I love how you titled this. Amazing. Speak your truth, cite your sources, and give logical arguments. This how we make change possible.
I wanted you to talk about "one football field sized land cleared every second". Its easier for us to imagine what that looks like rather than just the numbers. How true is that?
Just watched cowspiracy and imma see if my grocery store's got a good deal on soymilk or another plant-based milk. Besides what my family brings over, I don't eat a lot of meat anyway.
A lot of resources linked in the description doesn't longer work. I can find them myself, but please update them for those, who will not bother to look ;) Thanks for what you are doing!
Thank you for the very helpful source links. I am looking at the Op Ed piece where I was hoping to find the explanation of the 51% from the authors of the World Watch report but I don't see them discuss that in the Op Ed The Myth of Sustainable Meat. Is that the correct link? It says "James E. McWilliams is the author of “Just Food: Where Locavores Get It Wrong and How We Can Truly Eat Responsibly.” It doesn't mention the Goodland & Anhang World Watch study?
How much water does it cost to grow an avocado? Or soy? All life costs water right?
Anyway, all our problems come down to us being with way too many people... everything we do needs to be done on industrial scale. The diet as such is not the problem. It is the numbers we want our food in...
Nature is cruel, man up and eat meat
It's stupid that they account rainwater into the equation about needed water.
I know this video is old, but I just need to say that good God, one of my teachers showed us this video and I knew from the beginning it was bull, they're brainwashing us...
Vegan is the new normal! ✊💞
The issue here is over population is why the meat industry causes a problem for the environment. The world is clearly over populated so to sustain food for us all is going to require more and more water as talked about in the documentary. If the goal was to reduce our global population numbers this wouldn't be a problem. Obviously this becomes a very controversial topic though.
the ice bucket challenge argument OMEGALUL
Phew, I was worried, this was a great video :)
Show me how to get rid it water! I even tried burning it.... Steam but in every instance the Water returned to the environment!! Speak quickly, state lots of numbers and aside from roles on Fox , I failed to get the message
Love your vids
