Save the Planet – Eat Peanut-Butter & Jelly?
It has been reported that cattle farming does more harm to the environment than all the planes, trains, and cars put together! According to the PB&J Campaign, eating peanut-butter & jelly is good for the Environment. Simply eating peanut-butter and jelly can reduce as much as 2.5 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions in to our atmosphere, preserve hundreds of gallons of water, and free up 50 square feet of real estate, when compared to what goes into preparing hamburgers.
Other than being a lot better for the environment, there are also substantial health benefits to eating PB&J according to the Journal of the American Medical Association. It has been reported that woman who ate peanut-butter and jelly multiple times a week showed a 20% reduction in diabetes. Peanut-butter is also rich in an antioxidant which has been proven to strengthen cardiovascular health!
