Mayim Bialik: Veganism is Good for the Environment

February 9, 2012

Mayim Bialik has been very open about her diet, parenting techniques and religion lately. More recently, the actress talked about the connection between veganism and the environment in a blog post

"The health benefits of limiting meat and dairy are well documented, but perhaps more compelling is the environmental impact of a world devoted to massive consumption of animal products, which is truly unbelievable," Bialik wrote. "Here's an example: cattle around the world eat the amount that 8.7 billion people eat, and consume ten times the grain that Americans themselves eat. A Harvard nutritionist has stated that 60 million hungry people could be fed if meat intake has reduced by 10%. It's unfathomable. Being vegan is truly an earth-loving act!" 

In the post, Bialik also cites the ways Judaism supports and encourages a vegan lifestyle.
