Across the world, we manage to feed 80 billion farm animals every year, yet fail to feed 9 billion humans.
According to the U.N, 25,000 people lose their lives due starvation, every day.
The figures say it all and it's a sad fact that we are currently feeding more farm animals than humans, children included.
The global meat market was estimated to value at $1.3 trillion by the end of 2020 and there are individuals that benefit greatly, at the cost of our own species lives.
We breed billions of animals into existence for the sole purpose of being murdered for their flesh. If we distributed our resources more fairly, we could technically solve world hunger.
Surely, we should stop breeding so many farm animals and give some of the crops to the humans that need it, or turn those crops into food products that could be eaten by humans; instead of producing "meat" that goes mainly to the west.
263 million tonnes of "meat" is produced globally every year and over 20% is either lost or wasted.
Countries that are in a hunger crisis include; Afghanistan, Ethiopia, Nigeria, Somalia, South Sudan and Yemen to name but a few.
I do believe that majority of people would be shocked to realise that we manage to feed 80 billion farm animals every year, yet fail to feed 9 billion humans - and it's a strong reason to ditch meat all together and not fund these industries at all.
