1. Animal agriculture is the leading driver of deforestation yet little is mentioned on the mission statements of well established environmental groups ( is the possible crippling their fundraising efforts from meat eaters a factor? ).

4. It takes three times as much water to feed a farm animal in factory farms than it does for human to remain hydrated.
