Vegan Detroit Meetup Group Message Board › THANKS you VEGANS!

THANKS you VEGANS! love struck
(the official stats finally DROP on # of land animals killed for food in the U.S.!)

Group Organizer

Post #: 2,807
Via FARM: “The total number of land animals killed for food in the U.S. in 2008 was down 0.6% from 2007, at 10,279 million, despite a 1% increase in U.S. population, according to data extrapolated from the USDA.”

I know 0.6% doesn't sound like much... but to the animals spared and to the people who worked so hard at educating folks about a more compassionate diet, it is AWESOME, and it's only getting better! Go take a look at the 2009 projections and view the chart!
