Global meat consumption has increased from under 50 million tons annually to over 200 million tons in the last 50 years. The amount of animal manure produced in the U.S. is 130 times greater than the amount of human waste. This is causing more environmental and health problems than ever seen before. Here are 15 good reasons to stop eating meat (or at least cut down):

Health Reasons:

1. Lower risk of cancer. The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine has reported that vegetarians are less likely to get cancer by 25 to 50 percent.

2. Lower risk of heart disease. Researchers Dr. Dean Ornish and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn have a program that includes a vegetarian diet and is currently one of the few programs that has been proven to reverse heart disease. A vegetarian diet reduces cholesterol.

3. Lower risk of osteoporosis. Studies have shown that too much protein in our diet causes loss of bone calcium. Meat eaters generally get far more protein than they need or can use.

Many people give money to charities believing their money will be used to help people in need. They don't always realize that their money may instead be used to fund testing on animals. While some people believe animal testing is necessary, there are now many humane ways to learn about disease and to test medical treatments, methods that are actually more effective than testing on animals and that do not cause pain and death to innocent creatures.

I never heard such a sound in my life!My friend called her mum to come with the car and take them to the vet's immedialy.Her mum parked somewhere about 10 minutes walk from where we were... So we (kind of) picked her up (it was more dragging on the ground than actually carrying..Daisy is a rottweiler,she's damn heavy!) and got her to the car.All the car ride she was screaming.When we arrived at the vet's the went stiff as wood,her eye went foggy and she couldn't move.So we carried her in and as soon as the vet saw her,he said it's a case of some kind of poisoning (he said the name but I don't remember).That kind of poison is used to 'humanely' kill stray dogs.People from the kennels put it in some meat and leave it out.And let me tell you - that kind of killing isn't humane at all!
