Vegetarianism and Environmental Protection
A Meat and Dairy Industries Article from


Supreme Master Ching Hi

So if we want to save the planet, if we want to preach environmental care, we should be vegetarian.

We deplete the Earth because we raise cattle and animals. Actually, this is another way we can contribute to our planet. You know all this; you read more books than I ever can imagine-about vegetarianism, about how to save our world, about environmental love and all kinds of things. And the vegetarian diet is the answer to all of these questions. Our earth is collapsing because we eat too much meat. Actually, we have to put it that way.

But you know that every minute, every year, we cut down forests as big as England just to raise animals. So how many rain forests have been destroyed? This changes the atmosphere and changes the rain. That's why our planet is heating up, and many places are having problems with floods and drought for long periods, even in America.

So if we want to save the planet, if we want to preach environmental care, we should be vegetarian. There's no other thing to do. And that is just a small thing compared to all the vaccinations and all the pure water used for meat and things like that. You know better than I do. I don't want to preach to you about the things that you already read in newspapers and magazines and watch on television every day. I am just reminding you of a small portion of it. But the harmful effects of the meat diet are larger than life, not only that-to so many things, and harmful to ourselves.
