  • Reflection Question
    Food 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?

    People in richer countries eat more meat than people in other places because it is more readily available to them compared to people in other places. Eating more meat negatively affects our bodies, our planet, and other people. We receive less energy from meat compared to a plant-based diet due to entropy. Our planet suffers from eating more meat because it supports the cattle industry which produce a mass amount of greenhouse gases (methane). It also negatively impacts other people because most people who are able to eat meat overconsume which makes it difficult for those in less developed countries to survive.
