Livestock farming isnt just killing animals

Meat is not cheap.

Apart from costing the lives of countless millions of animals each year, its production is also causing starvation for millions of people all over the world.

And it takes a full 3Ibs of that grain to produce just 1 lb. of poultry. Or 10 Ibis of grain to yield a mere 1Ib of intensively reared beef.
