Is Vegetarian Madness?

Consuming vegetation as the main source of food in our daily lives is in fact harmful to our environment and ourselves. The amount of genetically modified organisms in our food is not only unnatural, which is what fruits and vegetables are supposed to be, but while we spray our crops with pesticides, it is killing all the micro-organisms in the soil. Intensely farmed crops like soy and corn that are often genetically modified to keep away pesticides are given to animals in their feed.
Not to be forgotten that vegetation needs a place to grow which takes up a lot of land, especially to feed the world. For example, the article has mentioned that avocados have created deforestation in Mexico. Intensively growing almonds in water is partly blamed for the water shortage in California during the state’s multi-year drought and soy crops, which are mostly for feed have been a part in the destruction of the Amazon rainforest.
