We all know that meat causes cancer. The 世界 健康 Organization recently ranked processed meats as “carcinogenic to humans,“通过把他们那里酒精,香烟和石棉的构成危险人类他们。然而,现实中并不吃大多数动物的劝阻我们。杀死自己有点快。或许,当我们看到我们的肉瘾破坏地球 - 畜牧业是对环境的破坏,物种灭绝和海洋死区 - 我们将沟肉自我保护,动物无数,和我们的家园地球的头号原因,它的前为时已晚。

In this 4-minute clip, shared by actor Leonardo DiCaprio, we will see how our meat addiction is contributing to our increasingly hotter planet.

The United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization estimates that at 7.1 gigatonnes CO2EQ每年, livestock production is responsible for 14.5% of all human-induced greenhouse gas emissions.  This is more than all the emissions produced by the US, or more than the emissions produced from powering all the world’s transportation vehicles combined. According to the 世界watch Institute, a globally focused environmental research organization based in Washington, it could be 高达51%。

Animal agriculture not only adds significantly to human-induced greenhouse gas emissions, it contributes directly and indirectly to deforestation, water pollution, air pollution, global warming, desertification and erosion. Take a look at these facts:

地球陆地面积的26%被用于放牧。地球上的可耕地的三分之一是由牲畜饲料作物种植占据。巴西的采伐迹地70%被用作牧草,饲料作物种植占据很多的剩余。在博茨瓦纳,畜牧业消耗使用的所有水的23%。 More than 90% of all Amazon rainforest land cleared since 1970, is used for grazing livestock. 70% of US grain goes to feeding livestock.

它需要 more than 2,400 gallons of water and up to 10 pounds of grain to produce just 1 pound of beef. 它需要 up to 3 pounds of fish meal to produce every pound of farmed salmon. In the United States alone, 56 million acres of land is used to grow feed for animals, while only 4 million acres is used to produce plants for humans to eat.

meat consumption expected to increase by 75% and dairy by 65% by 2050, if we don’t start to shift away from meat and dairy, we will never be able to reach the climate change mitigation goals.

“如果 people are not aware of the issue then it is unlikely that there will be public pressure on politicians to put the issue of emissions from the livestock sector on the negotiating table. In turn, if the issue is not on the political agenda, people are likely to remain unaware of the issue,” warned Rob Bailey, research director of energy, environment and resources at international affairs think-tank Chatham House, adding that the goal of keeping the global temperature rise below 2C would be off the table unless there was a change in consumption patterns.

A recent study led by scientists at the Oxford Martin School, has found that cutting down meat consumption to within accepted health guidelines could cut global food-related emissions by nearly a third by 2050, while widespread adoption of a vegetarian diet would bring down emissions by 63%.

Earlier we had no clue that eating meat was destroying the environment. Now that we know, can we change that?

  1. For the sake of everyone STOP just writing crap about meat “Everyone knows meat causes cancer” , where the hell did you get your information from? PROCESSED meats CAN cause cancer, just like the method of preparation of the food can cause cancer, PCB’s anyone?? (BBQ food).
    I have already unsubscribed from I FUCKING LOVE SCIENCE because of this issue of random statements made as “facts”. Watch what you write

  2. I thought it was a great article! I had no idea of the impact meat consumption was having on our environment. It definitely has me considering going vegan. I’m already halfway there. I can’t eat dairy bc I’m lactose intolerant. I don’t think I’ll be able to eat meat without thinking of this.

    • This article is bullshit.

      The article is biased and not objective.

      Since my family raises beef cattle, I know this article is retarded and absurd.

      Ironically, I feel bad for the sheeple that are reading it and believing every lie.

      • Don’t you think your opinion is also a bit biased and objective, since your family raises beef cattle? It’s obvious you wouldn’t agree that the thing you profit from may cause illness.

      • And I assume you also “humanely kill” them, right?
        And as it is your business you would lose money if people stop buying your pruducts, uh?

        洗脑。

  3. 但是让我们面对现实 - 它不太可能,现在每个人都将成为一个素食主义者。但愿这甚至不是做最好的营养的东西。我觉得更现实的梦想是力争对肉类和奶制品我们消耗的量的配给,并确保我们做好吃的小生产为道德和可持续尽可能与少求助于化学药品和抗生素等成为可能。当然,一个从种植而我们现在的大规模产业化移开

    • I grew up a farmer and I’m a farmer today.. Clueless comsumers That’s for telling me how to do my passion from your of the road

  4. Please retract this bs article! I love this site, but this is beyond insane.

    WHO is an extremely corrupt puppet organization, follow its advice if you desire a swift and painful death.

    Still not a single study where its proven that meat causes cancer, its even higher correlation between abstaining from meat completely and cancer. Processed food like bacon has higher correlation (so avoid or eat in moderation)

    Its also proven if counted calorie for calorie that growing salad is 3 times as hazardous as “growing” bacon. Sorry for bad english 🙂

    Still love you Anon 😀

  5. The comment section is full of people questioning meat-eating-rituals.

    Two perspectives why you should be limit/eliminate meat:
    -The individual perspective

    和honestly-这不是一个人的是关于什么是?同时确保单独繁荣的周边欣欣向荣呢?是不是一个伟大的感觉和你心爱的知道你是活得好好的?那么,为什么我们通过破坏我们自己的身体和消费死者尸体的散货环境寻求贪婪,苦难和痛苦?

  6. The solution is at the tip of the world’s tongue, every modern corporate or government corruption and environmental issue is just the nature of capitalism, and people need to realize that it must be overthrown if we want to really change anything

  7. This article is bullshit. About as truthi” as an article can be. And to think this is “匿名.” This is a shill website, purporting to be what it is not.

  8. OK,让我把它简单,你的素食主义者,花了像4畅想年从得到吃掉关,是吃大家的,我们并没有停止吃肉,我们只是习惯,你可以不停地说可笑的事情喜欢吃肉ITS外星人入侵联系我们,我只是想知道外星人会如何品尝烧烤酱。我们将在任何Circunstance停止吃肉,如果所有的动物死亡然后开始生病吃的人,如果行星。这意味着末尾,则对不起这个星球,如果我吃的肉得癌症那我就用一个死于癌症微笑在我的脸上。

  9. We want more profit, more money, more wealth.
    In the end everything collapses. The end is closer.
    People wake up …… !!!!

  10. Nope, still eating it. At least the meat is killed before it is skinned, boiled, fried, or eaten. Not like vegetables. And I tell you, after I’ve made a salad, by garbage can looks just like this, but with parts of vegetables, still alive.

  11. I think there are many articles about whats bad to eat but none suggests what to eat instead. How would I replace burgers? Meatballs? Sausages? I think people should focus more about discussing alternatives to unhealthy food. And not alternative that taste bad.
