Veganism and climate change

The topic I’m going to deal with is veganism. Nowadays, it is well known that eating less meat could save lives. It is because low-meats diets would stop an amount of deaths from heart disease and from cancer. It is true that we don’t need to go vegetarian to look after ourselves, but it would slow down climate change and deforestation in South America, where rainforest are being chopped down to raise cows, which are later exported to Europe. 

Furthermore, it may sound crazy that our roast-beef sandwich contributes to environmental degradation of the planet, but this impact requires our attention and action as global citizens. It is said that the best option is veganism. Veganism is a way of living which seeks to exclude, as far as is possible and practicable, all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose.

According to experts, the Mediterranean diet is good for us because is the one that includes lowers amounts of animal products. Although, it still produces emissions. By the way, the vegan diet, by eliminating dairy and egg, would reduce emissions the most, as confirmed by a study. Adopting a plant-based diet is, therefore, one of the most powerful choices an individual can make in mitigating environmental degradation and depletion of Earth's natural resources.

As I see it, everybody has the right to choose what they want to do. I think the best is trying to find a balance between what we eat, that would be good for our health and helping to reduce the environmental degradation. If we do these things, we will live in a better place; as well we will be healthier.
