  1. Worldwide over 852 million people go hungry.
  2. 79% of annual world cereal + soy harvest is consumed by the 20billion "farm- animals".
  3. To produce 1 kg of meat, you need 7-16 kg corn or soy beans+ 15.000 litres of water.
  4. On the surface, which is needed to harvest 1 kg of meat, could generate, in the same period, 200 kg of tomatoes or 160 kg of potatoes.
  5. 50% of water pollution in Europe are caused by factory farms.
  6. The contribution of livestock to the greenhouse effect is the same as that of the entire global, auto, air and waterway together.
