The number of animals raised for food has more than tripled to meet the ever-increasing demand for cheap and accessible meat, dairy, and eggs.

Hence, It’s as clear as day, eating more plant-based foods and less meat, dairy, and eggs can improve one’s overall health, not to mention help the planet and reduce animal suffering.
