you know that when you eat a healthier diet, consider more vegetarian options,
and don't waste food, you're helping end world hunger! Why does a vegetarian diet
help create a better world? It takes 15 to 20 pounds of grains to produce 1 pound
of meat. The grains and soybeans fed to American livestock each year would feed
1.3 billion starving people.
1977, World Vegetarian Day has been an occasion to help raise awareness about
the benefits of a vegetarian lifestyle. More than a million Americans become vegetarians
each year for environmental, ethical, health or humanitarian reasons.
