Why vegan – for other people’s well being

Some of you might wonder how and in which way it benefits others if you stop eating animal products. It probably isn’t the first reason vegans list when they explain their chosen diet but definitely a strong aspect to think about!


We currently are growing enough food to feed 10 billion people and still can’t end hunger.

To produce only one pound of cow flesh it requires 16 pounds (~ 7kg) of plant food and 5000 gallons (~18927L) of water, compared to 25 gallons (~95L) of water which it takes to produce one pound of wheat.

UNICEF as well as the United Nations said that on average 25,000 people a day die due to hunger.

82% of starving children live in countries where food is fed to animals, and the animals are eaten by the western population.

Those numbers say everything and it probably would be needless to say but by reducing the meat production people’s life could be saved.

The US alone could feed 800 million people with grain that livestock eats.


By now it probably is clear that by adapting to a vegan diet we can save people’s life, but here is another eye opening fact:

The land required to feed one person for one year

Vegan             1/6 acre (~675 square meter)

Vegetarian      3x as much as a vegan (0.5 acre ~ 2023 square meter)

Meat eater     18x as much as a vegan (3 acre ~ 12.150 square meter)


The sad truth is that the meat eating society is the root cause for world hunger. Every year 65% of the world grains are sat aside to feed 53 billion land animals that are killed every year, instead of using those crops for 6 ½ billion people.


If those starving people seem too far away there are still people in our parts of the world who suffer from the huge meat production. People who work at factory farms or in slaughterhouses have to give up a part of their heart to kill animals for 8 hours every single day – nobody should have to do such a job!



To make it more clear and avoid an overload of information I divided reasons to go vegan in 4 categories:


If you are looking for more information and other sources there are …

  • lots of videos on YouTube you could check out, like “Earthlings”, “best speech ever”, “Cowspiracy”, “101 reasons to go vegan”, or “farm to fridge”…
  • And also some amazing, mind blowing and heart opening movies like “what the health”, “forks over knifes”, “fat, sick & nearly dead”, “food, inc.”


*I just want this to be very clear: I do not want to attack anybody personally with any of my blog posts. My intentions simply reside in educating and opening eyes to what really is going on. I wish I stumbled over stuff like this years ago and changed my diet earlier, so I’m simply trying to do my best in providing such for others.*
