Simone from <a href="http://running-russell.oxygen.com/" target="_blank">Running Russell Simmons</a> says: <br />By giving up meat and dairy I am personally doing the most green/eco-friendly thing I can do as an individual. My carbon footprint is drastically reduced (even according to the United Nations!) because raising animals for food generates more greenhouse gas emissions than all the cars, planes, ships, trucks, and trains in the world combined. Plus, I'm saving lives. What is more "friendly" than that?
