    Food, Agriculture, and Land Use Reduce Animal Products
    Why do people in richer countries eat more meat than people in other places? How does eating more meat affect our bodies, our planet, and other people?

    Eating more meat increases more risk of certain cancers and cardiovascular illness. 
    The climate impact is roughly equivalent to all the driving and flying of EVERY car, truck and plane in the world.
