Soaring Demand For Tofu Deforesting Amazonian Rainforest At Record Rates
Don’t believe me?
Tofu is made from soybeans
Deforestation in Brazil’s Amazon rainforests has jumped by 40%, due to mostly to increasing demand for soybeans, which are planted on the newly cleared land.
Much of the destruction has been blamed on the illegal logging of land for soya production, say experts at Nature Conservancy in Brazil. Only the US now produces more of the profitable crop.
Charity agrees. “There have been large government incentives to increase the export of soya from Brazil [in 2002],” she told New Scientist.
Somebody needs to stop these damned Vegans and their fellow travelers before their profligate lifestyle destroys the planet, I’m telling you what.
