Greta Thunberg encourages everyone to switch to a plant-based diet

Greta Thunberg said that the people of our planet should immediately change their taste habits in order to save the Earth from crises and disasters.

– If we switch to a plant-based diet, we can reduce the amount of carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere by 8 billion cubic meters annually. – she thinks . – Climate and environmental crises, problems in the health care system – everything is interconnected.

Thunberg believes that many of the diseases that are now rampant in the world – COVID-19, Zika and Ebola viruses – were transmitted to humans from an animal.

“The way we treat nature, cutting down forests and destroying habitats, creates ideal conditions for the spread of disease from animal to person,” she insists.

It is echoed by the World Health Organization. The WHO believes that about 60% of the currently existing infectious diseases were transmitted at one time to humans from or through animals.

– If you continue to get food in the same way as now, destroying flora and fauna, then this will lead to the extinction of countless animal species, – Greta continues, blaming the agricultural industry separately, since it is livestock that provides about a quarter of all carbon dioxide emissions into the Earth's atmosphere.
