For the planet.
- Chicken flesh is a waste of agricultural energy and resources. It takes 4 pounds of grain energy for 1 pound of chicken’s flesh -- requiring 4 times the amount of fuel, land, water to feed animals rather than directly feeding people.
- According to the U.S. Geological Survey and WorldWater.org it requires on average 500 gallons of water to produce ONE pound of chicken flesh -- mostly for growing food for the chickens. This does not including water used at the slaughterhouse.
- "The amount of animal wastes produced in the U.S. is staggering. In chickens, for example, the daily production of wastes is essentially equal to the amount of feed used. This means for every truckload of feed that is brought onto the farm, a similar load of waste must be removed. A one million hen complex, for example, produces 125 tons of wet manure a day" (Bell, D. "An egg industry perspective," Poultry Digest, Jan. 1990, p. 26.).
For your health. The flesh of chickens is high in cholesterol – higher than the flesh of cows or pigs. The flesh of chickens is also high in long-chain triglycerides which accumulate in the blood stream and contribute to heart disease. It also contains arachidonic acid which stimulates inflammation in our bodies, aggravating conditions like arthritis and heart disease.
