Heart-Centered Humans for Animals' Rights and Protection
World-side statistical references based upon 2003 research.
Note the number of marine animals (includes fish) is more than twice all other species combined. These numbers represent those killed by the meat, egg, and dairy industries world-wide.
Not included killing or deaths due to: research (vivisection), animal shelters, circuses, rodeos, zoos, marine parks, bullfighting, cockfighting, dogfighting, bear-baiting, horse or dog racing (exterminated after unable to race or killed by overuse), or wildlife tourism.
"Of the more than 200 countries researched, the top three—
the United States, China, and Brazil—consume a staggering
46 percent of these animals as food. The United States alone consumes roughly 20 percent of all animals slaughtered for food even though it contains less than five percent of the world's population." ~ ADAPTT.org
Australia is also a major consumer of animal products, with
an equal or greater per capita (per person) amount than the Unites States.
