What will happen,if one day everyone on earth, pulled their forks away from their steaks and turned vegan, weather for the sake of a healthier lifestyle to eleviate animal suffering or to fight global warming. Everyone found their own reason to say not to a juicy burger,a fluffy omelette or a chessy pizza, even the ice cream would make the no-no list.
Would the vegan diet save us from climate change?Would this improve your health?what would happen to all those cattle?
This is ‘what will Happen’ and today we will discuss,what will happen if everyone becomes a vegan.
There are 20 million vegans in the US alone six times more than there were in 2015.Tofu is filling in for me on restaurant menu.Dairy milk alternatives are pushing their way onto supermarket shelves.
What was once a radical diet choice is becoming mainstream.Did you know food produced by animals is responsible for a quarter of all greenhouse gas omissions.Most of that comes from cows,every year the world’s cattle population leaves a carbon footprint equivalent to the CO2 of every car,train,ship and aircraft in the world put together.
But wait,how exactly does livestock contribute to the global warming?
There a billion and half cow in the world ,each cow releases up to a hundred and twenty kilograms of methane per year, on the climate scale, methane’s effect is 23 times higher than carbon-di-oxide on top of that cattle take as much as 2/3 of all agriculture land on the planet.
If we all went vegan we’d used most of that pasture land for restoring forests under grasslands, to help reduce Carbon-di-oxide in the air.If we start growing more crops, to fill the gaps in our food supply, livestock related gas emissions would drop by 70%.
But,what will happen to all farm animals with no demand for grilled chicken and roast beef, billions of animals would be slaughtered or abandoned.Some animals like sheep and pigs might be able to return to the wild but their numbers would drop due to predators ,others though like boiler chicken couldn’t survive in the wild as they’re so far removed from ancestors they wouldn’t know what to do their.Best chance might be in sancturies where they’d be taken care of until they die out.
Your local butcher would have to find another job and so would millions of farmers they could start growing more or restoring forests.But on a large scale, rural communities that used to supply you with milk eggs and meat would face significant unemployment.
Developing countries who built their lives and trades around livestock, will deal with major economic disruption but everyone would be a little bit healthier or would be?
Adopting a vegan diet doesn’t automatically make you healthy. eater of vegan’s often miss out on vital nutrients they often don’t get enough calcium iron,vitamin D ,zinc ,vitamin B or omega-3 fatty acids.
Since meat ,egg’s and cheese would no longer be served, as a perfect source of protein you’d have to eat a lot of beans ,soy and lentils but with a proper diet we’d suffer from less coronary heart disease stroke and diabetes.
Global mortality rate would drop by 10% and this would mean 8 million less deaths per year and upto one trillion dollars saved on health care and lost working days annually.But not in developing countries where over two billion people already face massive undernourishment without meat ,for them things wouldn’t get healthier, they’d get worse.
Having the entire world go vegan, might be a little extreme but keeping foods produced by animals in our diet, means we will eventually have to deal with the gas emissions.
Luckily for those hooked on meat, clean solution to reduce emissions from the livestock industry, already exist. All thats left is to implement them !! what about you ! would you say, no to your meatball pasta tonight ??
