Welcome to Radio Live Green Smart. I’m Emmanuel your presenter this evening, of a short promotion on vegan food. A little bit about Radio Live Green Smart before we come to the promotion, Radio Live Green Smart is a forum to discuss green living and eco-friendly living and importantly a forum to discuss where you see disrespect for the environment first hand. Bring such disrespect to us we’ll assist to expose such environmental disrespect. Use contact us to send the details of the disrespect. Please provide comprehensive information to make it easy for us to follow up. Top
When looking at vegan and green, let’s look at an intuitive message with two points. The one is the average person burns around 1000 calories a day even if staying in bed, merely to power the body. It requires exponentially more resources to eat animal products. Most of what we feed to farmed animals is required to keep them alive. Much of the rest is turned into bones and other bits we don’t eat. A fraction of those crops is turned into meat, milk or eggs and so forth. Thus, we need to grow the crops required to raise the animals in order to eat the animals and their by-products, vastly more is used to eating the crops directly. In other words, by just eating the crops ourselves far less crops are required. The second point is many extra stages of polluting and energy intensive steps are required to get animal products to the table. That’s in addition to feeding the animals. Top
