Vegging up your meals can benefit both the environment and your health!
> Meat production causes pollution: intensive livestock rearing is a huge source of greenhouse gases, deforestation, tremendous water waste, and soil pollution. To have sufficient yield, antibiotic use in animals is highly common.
> An over-consumption of meat can also negatively impact your health: eating too much animal protein is unhealthy for your body.
Excess protein, fat, and fatty acids promote bad cholesterol and certain cardiovascular diseases.
Plant proteins exist (beans, grains, oilseeds, etc.) and supply you with the necessary protein intake to avoid any deficiencies.
> Meat is expensive: poultry, beef, pork, lamb… consuming meat on a daily basis calls for a pretty hefty budget.
To sum up: eating too much meat negatively impacts the planet, animals, and your own health: try to reduce your meat consupmtion a bit and to to focus on high-quality nutrition :).
