Can you quantify the environmental footprint of your diet? This amazing infographic by Spencer Belkofer  shows the impact that raising animals for food has on the environment. Belkofer compiled data from the United Nations, the University of Chicago, PETA, and other credible sources to take a by-the-numbers look at the meat, egg, and dairy industries  that is often shocking. (Did you know that it takes 2,400 gallons of water  and 16 pounds of grain to produce a single pound of meat?) Check out the full infographic after the break!
