Truth or Truth. Souji,if your least favourite food was the only food left in the world;would you rather eat it or starve?

Okita grimaces, horrorstruck. “Only scallions? Without any other ingredients?!” He jerks his head aside, paling visibly at the thought, and swallows somewhat queasily. “I’d… at least try to eat them,” he continues after a long pause, his voice a mumble. “I’d still need to keep my strength up if I want to be of any use to the Shinsengumi. But I think I’d have to save most of that strength for keeping all those green onions down,” he adds bitterly, “so… I might end up starving anyway if I can’t do that.”

People are living on top of each other yet 45% of the earth’s total land mass is dedicated to animal agriculture.

We currently have enough food to feed 10 billion people, but we live in a world where 82% of starving children live in countries where food is fed to animals, and then the meat is consumed by wealthier countries.

we are struggling to feed a population yet 1.5 acres of land can provide 37,000 pounds of plant based food.
1.5 acres of land can produce 375 pounds of meat.

¾ of the world’s fisheries are depleted. Scientists estimate we may have a fishless ocean by 2048
