New York, New York - November 8, 2012 ( newswire, editor:, an investor research portal specializing in sector research for independent investors including water stocks and agriculture stocks , reports on the growing trend to eating vegan or reducing meat consumption globally and how simple changes in our daily eating habits can make a world of difference in terms of addressing global water shortages.

As the stock market reacted in Wednesday's trading session to the US election , consumers and investors need to be reminded of their ultimate voting power in creating change; how and where they spend their money.

According to, more than half the world's people live in countries where water tables are falling as aquifers are being depleted. A startling 80 percent of oceanic fisheries are being fished at or beyond their sustainable yield.

Philip Wollen (Order of Australia) is an ex-Vice President of Citibank. Phillip has now funded the next documentary of Earthlings. In this video he shares his view of ethics of a meat free world.

He notes there are 600 Million vegetarians globally, a number bigger than the 27 nations of the EU combined . He asks consumers to consider how eating meat adds a burden to health care costs in addition to a massive drain on a valuable diminishing resource- water .

"It takes 50,000 litres of water to produce one kilo of beef and one thousand glasses of water to produce one glass of milk. In addressing global hunger he goes on to say " reducing our meat consumption by 10% will feed 100 Million people."
