Go vegan this week!
Today, 1 billion people suffer from starvation and undernourishment yet 1,6 billion people are overeating and suffering from obesity.
Stop and think about that for a second.
It doesn't just end here, more than 80% of all genetically modified crops grown worldwide have been engineered for herbicide tolerance.
As a result, the toxic herbicide Roundup is not only causing us cancer, and polluting our soil and water, it's also responsible for an alarming decrease in our bee-, insect- and bird population. With the loss of our bees, 90 different foods we enjoy today may not exist in the future.
Agriculture causes 80% of tropical deforestation, cattle ranching and large-scale agriculture are major drivers of deforestation. What’s more around the world, forests are giving way to plantations such as oil palm, soy, rubber, coffee, tea, and rice among many other crops.
One of the greatest causes of biodiversity loss and therefore extinction is the conversion of forest and woodland into grazing for cattle. A kilogram of beef is about 30-times more demanding on the environment than a kilogram of plant protein. A plant based diet could reduce your carbon footprint by 50%
Agriculture accounts for 70% of total water consumption worldwide and is the single-largest contributor of pollution to surface water and groundwater.
The over-consumption of our species with the lack of respect for our nature is putting all of us at risk. If ever a change was needed, today would be a good day.
Therefore #theconsciouschallenge of this week is about going vegan!
Win a free probiotic drink from queen ferment!
Did you know that the microbes in your gut produce over 50% of your dopamine and 90% of your serotonin produced in your body? Two neurotransmitters that drastically affect your mood, happiness and pleasure. And these microbes can manipulate your cravings and eating behaviors for their own survival. Your diet affects what bacteria thrives and what signal it gives to what food you think you need. Probiotics are very effective against overeating and obesity! This week we get to give 5 bottles away from Queen Ferment! A bottle of Kombucha, Kefir, Ginger Ale, Apple Cider and Kurkuma Soda! Yay!
