AWA and Soil Association Publish New Report

Lies, Damn Lies CoverAnimal Welfare Approved  program director Andrew Gunther is pleased to announce that AWA has partnered with the U.K.’s Soil Association to publish a new report, “Lies, Damn Lies.”  This report casts doubt on two frequently quoted statistics that say that globally we need to increase food production by 50% by 2030 or that it needs to double by 2050.

“This report clearly demonstrates that the figure currently used to illustrate future demand for food is inaccurate. Many of those using these inflated claims are justifying the need for more intensive agricultural practices and, in particular, the need for further expansion of GM crops,” remarked Andrew Gunther.  He continued, “At AWA we believe that it is possible to feed the world without confining animals and destroying the very planet we rely on to nourish us. The AWA program represents a very real option to feed the world without making medicines redundant and making our rivers and oceans dead zones.”

The report is available for download.
