Tofu Won't Save the Planet   Health and Science

Yep, growing soybeans is worse for the environment than just about anything raised for meat eaters.
An astonishing indictment, not just of giant corporations like Monsanto, but of our media, which once again lets us down by publishing a never-ending stream of lies about how wonderful vegetarianism and veganism is for your health and the environment.   No, they're not.

We well know nowadays, approximately 94% of the world’s soy is genetically engineered, mostly to be defiant to Monsanto’s Roundup.

Regrettably, as Roundup’s effectiveness diminishes, the more it gets sprayed; soybean farmers are currently doubling glyphosate applications per season. Soybeans produced on commercial farms in the U.S.A, Brazil and Argentina accumulate an estimated 2,500-10,000 metric tonnes of glyphosate per year. The unpleasant effects of glyphosate and dicamba on the environment starts with the annihilation of soil microflora, bee colonies, and aquatic organisms.

A huge number of my friends are vegetarians, including Sand.Grain and I'm sure they like do grow their own clean veggies and create their own Tofu at home... this would be interesting to read....

WHY NOT EAT THE BEANS AS THEY ARE?

It could be easier to find out if they were sprayed?

Just picture if all our food cravings had regular ethics as it used to be during my grannies' era and some more honest peaceful times along the way?.

There's almost no respect or ethics around anymore.
