  • 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?

    Ryan Dunn 12/10/2019 9:05 AM
    People in richer countries eat more meat because it is more readily available to them. It often leads to overconsumption which can be bad for the individuals health as well as the environment. I went vegetarian in October but just stopped recently and instead I am trying to reduce my meat and dairy consumption. There are many different foods that have damaging footprints and the best we can do is to be aware of what we buy, try to buy local when possible, and limit our consumption from the cattle industry.
