According to the United Nations, the meat industry generates more greenhouse gases than all the cars, trucks, SUVs and planes in the world combined. Animal agriculture is one of the world's largest sources of carbon-dioxide emissions and is the single largest source of methane and nitrous-oxide emissions. It also produces many tonnes of manure and other waste products each year, polluting the air, water and soil.

"By going vegetarian, Vivek Oberoi has proved that he is a real hero for all animals", says PETA India's Nikunj Sharma. "Kicking the meat habit is the best thing that anyone can do for animals, their own health and the Earth."
