Default 7,000 animals?

The average meat eating person eats 7,000 animals in their life time.

or 70 billion a year are killed for food

The number is staggering, but that's where YOU come in.

Choose vegetarian/vegan and help bring this number down

I am very fond of you Jimbo. Just eat what is on your plate and don't pay any attention to your sisters and brothers plates. Be grateful there is food and don't start something. We are all tender hearted enough.

What I found astounding is the amount of water it takes to bring an animal to slaughter. According to the article below, we need to seriously consider our future use of limited resources required to support meat production. Very interesting read.

Cows, chickens and sheep eat corn, grass, etc. So I must be a vegetarian?

If you eat a vegetarian are you still a meat eater?

Around 70% of the surface is covered with water, but that's not the same as its composition

Just 2.5% of the Earth's water is fresh, and two thirds of that is locked up in glaciers and ice caps.

The earth may be 70% but 97% of that water is salt. They have already built a $1 billion plant in southern california to desalinate and are charging the population $5 a month for their water.
It isn't going to affect us but as the saying goes: The world is not given by his fathers, but borrowed from his children.

For thousands of years man has been eating animals. In the Bible, God instructs people to kill and burn animals. All of the people in the Bible ate animals including Jesus. Why, all of a sudden in the past 60 years or so, are we supposed to change this? I believe that God put animals on this earth to nourish his people.

Simple statistics show that there is a direct link to disease and death not only from meat but the way they are treated with drugs for starters.

We now know a meat-heavy diet contains the equivalent of 2 1/2 pounds of saturated fat a week!

Fact!
World War II provided a graphic example of how the ravages of these diseases could be totally halted. Norway was one of several western European nations occupied by Nazi Germany during the conflict between 1939 through 1945. The Germans removed all animal livestock from these occupied countries. The native population subsisted on whole grains, legumes, vegetables and fruit. Almost immediately death from heart attacks and strokes in Norway plummeted. With the cessation of hostilities in 1945 animal products became available as well as an immediate return to the prewar levels of deaths from these illnesses.

your second comment "God put animals on this earth to nourish his people"

I think he also put plants ie vegetables on earth also to nourish his people, but it is up to to you to choose which to be nourished by.

It was never in his plan to factory raise, torture and abuse these living creatures.

There is some compelling research that indicates that a plant based diet can have a significant impact on reducing heart disease and cancer. While we do fall off the wagon occasionally, my wife has pretty much switched us over to a vegetarian diet. One of my favorites is a "tuna salad" made from garbanzo beans.

One way to think about this is your life expectancy without civilization would be much shorter. So short, on average, that diseases such as heart blockages and cancer never develop in the average person. People are living much longer because of modern medicine - viruses, infections from wounds, and broken bones are no longer fatal, as well as dramatically decreased infant mortality. People are living so long that heart disease and cancer now have a chance to develop. A plant based diet appears to be an effective way to combat those diseases as you age. Prevention is always better than treatment.

Not to be contrary but I believe stoning was advised in the bible as well but we have outgrown that thinking. It also said pork was prohibited but I doubt many follow that either.

We should just use our heads and make considered choices and not just thinking how yummy that tastes. Although, I will be really upset if dark chocolate starts getting bad press.
