Drop Meat to Save the Planet

The Guardian reports that the United Nations is again urging people to cut the amount of meat they eat -- this time by at least half.

The UN reports that pollution from fertilizers is threatening human health and the environment. The over-use of fertilizers is due to animal agribusiness -- which requires 16 times more plants and 20 times more land than growing and supplying vegan, plant-based foods.

Professor Mark Sutton, chairman of the International Nitrogen Initiative, said with a growing world population, the West needs to set an example to slow consumption of meat. Sutton says, "To aim towards eating half of the amount of meat we are currently eating is a good starting point... We need to realize that over-eating [animal protein] is not healthy -- not for the environment and not for ourselves.”
