Food for Thought

Last month, National Geographic magazine talked about world population that touched 7 billion people. It was huge amount and it could create so many problems if we don't think of a solution. The world is getting crowded and lots of things to take care, such as food, place to live, energy supply, and many more.

This month, NGM showed a stunning number abou food for thought. In 2009, we have killed around 52 billion chickens, 2,6 billions of ducks, 1.3 billions of pigs, 1.1 billions of rabbits, 633 millions of turkeys, 518 million of sheep, 398 millions of goats, 293 million of cows, 24 million of water buffalo, and 1.7 million of camels worldwide. Can you think of the growing number in recent and future years? It would be very huge with more and more people living in this tiny earth.

One solution to preserve those animals and keeping it from extinction is to start a new habbit of being a vegetarian. You can start your new habbit by reading all information about vegetarian at PETA's Vegetarian Starter Kit.

It would be a good idea if we can spread this good habbit in our own environment and let it spread like a parasit.
