HOW DOES EATING MEAT AFFECT OUR PLANET? (Αρίστη Αποστολοπούλου)

In the past few years there have been a lot of researches and investigations, searching about the constant consumption of large amounts of meat, daily. Humans have caused an irretrievable damage and harm to the environment by producing more and more meat.

Some of the main problems are:

  • Cows consume more than they produce. One pound of fresh flesh needs 16 pound of food, like grass and vegetables. They also need to be much hydrated and that has as a consequence of spending 2.500 gallons of water when the cultivation of wheat needs only 25 gallons.

  • A typical pig factory generates the same amount of raw waste as a city of 12,000 people.

  • The factories of meat production pollute the atmosphere with so much fossil fuel that it could be enough for a small car to drive 20 miles. And the extraordinary thing is that this certain amount of fuel excretes to the air by the production of only 1 burger.

  1. *Το άρθρο αυτό είναι εργασία της Αρίστης Αποστολοπούλου στο πλαίσιο του μαθήματος των Αγγλικών. Ευχαριστούμε τόσο τη μαθήτρια όσο και την καθηγήτρια, κα Έφη Σαμαρά, που το επιμελήθηκε. Για να κάνω κι ένα σχόλιο για το άρθρο καθαυτό, νομίζω ότι όλοι πρέπει να λάβουμε υπόψη τα στοιχεία αυτά και να περιορίσουμε την κατανάλωση κρέατος, γιατί η κρεατοφαγία θα μας «φάει» όπως «τρώει» το περιβάλλον και τις επόμενες γενιές…
