Building our diets around GREEN-RATED foods is the most effective way to reverse desertification - a term that describes the process where fertile land turns into desert. The result is soil that is unfit for most forms of life, including both livestock and crops. The primary cause of desertification is deforestation from cattle ranching, but poor farming practices can also be a driver. As the demand for destructive animal products and crops grows with the human population, so does the global incidence of desertification. The best way to save soil and forests is to stop consuming RED-RATED foods, especially beef, and share this information with others.
