Americans Ate 400 Million Fewer Animals in 2014

It’s a question you may have heard one too many times: Do vegans really save animals? And it’s never been clearer that the answer to that question is an enthusiastic yes!

The proof? According to the USDA, 400 million fewer animals were slaughtered in 2014 than in 2007. That’s 400 million individuals who were spared a lifetime of unimaginable suffering.

In light of a continually growing population, this decrease can only mean one thing: more and more people are eating less meat or ditching it altogether in favor of plant-based foods. And those choices are sparing animals lives in a very measurable way.

Animals on modern farms are kept cramped in filthy, disease-ridden conditions, subjected to mutilations without painkillers, and denied fresh air and sunlight until the day they are trucked to slaughter.

Whether it’s protecting animals, the environment, or your own health, the benefits of a vegan diet have never been clearer, and delicious vegan foods have never been more accessible.
