Carnism: the plague of earth


The EU is the second largest meat producer in the world with around 47 million tonnes (China, the first: 85 million tonnes).


Over the past 50 years, global meat consumption has quintupled. Demand for meat and, above all, poultry is rising rapidly worldwide. To cover them, global meat production must increase to 470 million tonnes by 2050.

To this end, the meat industry uses: vaccines, antiparasitic and antibiotic products for pigs, poultry and cattle!

Germany is not only one of the largest meat producers, but also one of the largest milk producers in the world.
Subsidized with tax money!

Germany produces 8 million tons of meat every year!
In order to be able to produce that amount of meat at all, it needs food for the animals. Germany imports most of the soya from Latin America.

It is estimated that over 30 million tonnes of genetically modified feed are imported into Europe each year to feed pigs, poultry, dairy and beef cattle and farmed fish.
Much of the soybean and corn used for this purpose is grown in South America, including Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay.


This is the illegal deforestation of Mato Grosso, a federal state of Brazil

This soy, mostly genetically modified, is used for the rearing of chickens, pigs and cattle or for the production of meat, eggs and dairy products.
To be able to produce this amount of soy, forests are cleared and burned.
An extraordinary, century-old ecosystem with a high biodiversity disappears.
So, if the topic of climate change or CO2 is under discussion, why is the topic of factory farming not mentioned?


This documentary video explores the catastrophic effects of soybean cultivation in South America and shows people in South America and Europe alternatives to the devastating vicious circle. The video is in English or Spanish with German subtitles.

“A child dying of hunger today is being murdered” (Jean Ziegler)

By whom murdered? Of all those who are involved in this system. This also applies to those meat consumers who are indifferent to the suffering of animals and the destruction of the environment and who finance this system through their purchases.

Because we and our children want to have our steaks, the poor countries sell their crops to the livestock of the rich nations, while in the 122 of the third world countries, and according to UN statistics, 43,000 children die of hunger… per day!!

Each of us makes daily the decision whether he wants to participate in the dirty system of the farm animal mafia by the consumption of meat, milk, cheese and eggs and whether he wants to make himself guilty of the brutal consequences for the environment, the hunger and the suffering of the animals.

We have to digest that well!
