Single Best Way To Help The Environment

I often get asked what's the best thing to do to help the environment. Recycle, drive less, eat locally grown food, take public transportation? It was often a toss up to what I may suggest since each one is helpful although none really stood out as the best.

Now have the answer.

The United Nations (UN) recently released a report that stated the single best way to help the environment is to stop eating meat. The amount of pollution created in raising animals for human consumption is staggering, more than 130 times of human generated pollution. The amount of water used for animal raising is staggering as well.

Watch the video below from the Glenn Beck show that details more. Now Glenn is no vegetarian, but he makes a valid point that those that want to help the environment ought to be a good example and show others what they can do to make a difference.

Not only is skipping meat good for the environment, it's also been proven to reduce your chances for disease, extend your life and increase the quality of your life considerably.

If you'd like to help the environment (and yourself) take the first step and reduce or eliminate meat from your and your family's diet. Look at resources that help with adding convenient and delicious foods to your dietvegetarian and vegan options as well as vegan raw options.

To your best health!
