did you know? Mike Tyson Loves Being Vegan: It's Changed His Life via @TreeHugger

Today, thanks to celebrity converts and more restaurant and food choices, the diet is a completely realistic way of living and that's a good thing for the planet as well considering that it takes up to 16 pounds of soybeans and grains to produce 1 pound of beef and 3 to 6 pounds to produce 1 pound of turkey and egg. Eating grains directly makes a huge difference.
