I agree about the stats, it seemed strange to me what PETA said about trees and stuff.
So you can't rely on numbers, but is there any reason to believe you actually reduce animal suffering by not eating meat? The reason I ask is becouse it seems to me that only one person has a small impact and is not going to get slaughterhouses to slaugther less animals by not eating meat.
You actually don't to tell you the truth, which is why it is a joint effort. However by not eating meat, you are not resposible for their suffering and such. If you eat, then you are a direct cause for it. People have demand for meat, which is why there will always slaughter animals. Hopefully over time, or through law, this will be a banned practice.
If I don't buy blood diamonds going to stop the civil war? Nope. But its a joint effort as well as well as responsibility issues. Same with child labor, etc.
