    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?

    We eat more because we can afford to eat meat and it is easily available. Too much meat fat can impact our heart and circulation system as well as create more carbon from producing the meat.
