someone in my bio class they said that if we didn't eat the animals that we do and hunt as well then animals would reproduce at an alarming rate and would become very over populated. is this true? this may be such a dumb question but i'm actually wondering

nooooo it’s not true at all! the only reason there are so many farm animals is because we breed thousands and thousands of them for us to eat :(

"We all know that everyone needs to eat, but we tend to overlook the fact that it’s not efficient to cycle grain though animals. The production of a pound of feedlot beef requires sixteen pounds of corn and soybeans. From the point of view of world hunger, if you feed corn and soybeans to livestock, you’re actually wasting most of the protein and other nutrients that you’ve grown. If you think about the vast numbers of people who are starving on our planet, it begins to look like a crime against humanity to take 80% of the corn and soybeans grown in the U.S. today and feed it to livestock. But that is exactly what we are doing, so we can have cheap meat. Cheap, that is, if you don’t count the human suffering that is and will be caused by climate deterioration, the cruelty to billions of animals, and the unmet food needs of hundreds of millions of people."

"The question we will collectively answer with our lives in the coming years is this: are we going to take the Earth’s needs into account, or are we going to indulge our appetites without regard for the impact we’re having on the environment?"

"Animals raised for food account for more than half of all human-caused greenhouse gases. Eating plants instead of animals, the authors state, would be by far the most effective strategy to reverse climate change, because it would have far more rapid effects on greenhouse gas emissions and their atmospheric concentrations than actions to replace fossil fuels with renewable energy."

"The greenhouse gas emissions from producing a pound of beef are fifty-eight times greater than those from producing a pound of potatoes."

"Cattle are notorious for producing methane, which is one of the four primary greenhouse gases. You may find it difficult to take cow burps and flatulence seriously, but livestock emissions are no joke. Methane comes from both ends of the cow in such enormous quantities that scientists seriously view it as one of the greatest threats to our earth’s climate."
