The amount of water saved by giving up just one hamburger is the same (approx. 2,600 gal) as the water saved by changing out an older 5 gal flush toilet with the new low water (now legally required in our state) 1.4 gal flush toilet -- if you flushed it twice a day for an entire year!
That is: 5 gal - 1.4 gal = 3.6 gal x 365 days x 2 (twice a day) = 2,628 gal! the close equivalent quantity of water used to produce one fatty health and environment hurting hamburger!

One hamburger is also the water equivalent used to grow more than a year and two months, twice a day servings worth of tomatoes! Over 6 months worth of potatoes or lettuce! 3 months worth of Bread or Apples! Or 2 months worth of oranges or its wonderful juices!
One hamburger is the water equivalent
used to produce a full week's worth (i.e. 7 days, three times a
day, of breakfast, lunch and dinner) of nutritionally complete, fully healthy,
meals (with a much greater variety) -- and
with much less expense! -- in the less than
125 gal needed to grow and prepare the average meal within a true 100%
also the need for the production
of fertilizer with its fluoride waste product
all ate directly
