Caring Congres

The third Caring Congress in Antropia Driebergen; now for the first time with Caring Farmers, Caring Vets and Caring Doctors.

We are a collective of doctors and other healthcare professionals that will bring about a transition
away from our current destructive animal food system.
For people, animals and nature.

Our current animal food system and overconsumption are increasingly creating welfare diseases such as obesity, cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke, accelerated joint complaints and unfortunately also cancer.

Because we put more than half of our food production into a pig, chicken or cow, this creates food shortages in other parts of the world. One billion people have no daily food security, while we already produce enough plant-based food for ten billion people.

Furthermore, worldwide intensive livestock farming contributes to deforestation, loss of biodiversity, water shortages, soil pollution from pesticides and artificial fertilizers, air pollution from particulate matter, water pollution from manure, artificial fertilizers and pesticides, eutrophication (fertilization) of rivers and oceans, resistance to antibiotics and anti-fungal agents. and there is a much greater risk of new zoonotic pandemics.

In a mainly plant-based food system there is less health damage from diseases of affluence, less environmental damage and more food security for ten billion people.

Caring Doctors pleit voor een ander voedingspatroon, namelijk 80% plantaardig, 20% dierlijk. Nu is dat andersom.
