Save the world, stop eating meat

There are few solutions that have such broad beneficial impact as eating less meat or even stop eating meat altogether. It takes about 40 million tons of food to eliminate the most extreme cases of world hunger, yet nearly 20 (!) times that amount of grain is fed to farmed animals every year to produce meat. Scientists predict that 2.7 billion hectares of land currently used for cattle grazing would be freed up by global vegetarianism. Eating less meat leads to better health as well and to lower CO2 emissions.
