The Economy 

In the U.S. alone, more than 3.5 trillion dollars a year (over 20% of gross domestic product) is spent on healthcare costs born from our top preventable, treatable and in many cases, reversible chronic diseases.

 

Moving to a plant-based or health-wealthy vegan lifestyle could easily save more than a trillion dollars a year,  while also reducing negative climate impacts brought about by animal agriculture, deforestation and emissions. A plant-based or health-wealthy vegan lifestyle would also save an additional 38 billion dollars a year that is currently being spent on animal agriculture through federal subsidies.
