When Vegetarians Attack: The Environment

titleAs if you need another reason not to become a vegetarian, today’s entry in the day-by-day calendar, “What’s Your Poo Telling You?,” should give you enough of a reason.

According to the calendar:

  • The average lifetime production of poo: five tons.
  • 150 grams of stool per day x 365 days per year x 80 years = 4380 kilograms (9656 lbs.) of stool.
  • A vegetarian diet can produce fifteen to twenty tons over a lifetime!

That’s a lot of extra vegetarian poo, which obviously has disastrous personal and environmental consequences. All those extra hours spent sitting on the toilet when they could be out spending time with the family or searching for protein supplements? And imagine just how much extra water the vegetarians use to flush their abnormally persistent bowel movements. Not only that, but the amount of waste generated by the said vegetarian movements must reach monumental heights.

Is it really worth saving the edible animals, just to see Earth’s ecosystem suffer? Remember, if there is no world, there won’t be any plants or animals.

Oh yeah, bonus points go to Fi for getting me this wonderfully disturbing calendar.
