Approximately 500 UK species could be protected if less meat eaten by Britons.United Kingdom-based non-profit the Food Foundation, dedicated to promoting a sustainable and healthy diet for all, published a new report in April 2022 predicting that by reducing red meat intake by 5.5 grams and replacing it with a handful of vegetables each day, as many as 536 species could increase their habitable areas by more than 10%. The report projects that under such a scenario, 27% of the land currently used for raising animal-people for food could be utilized to foster biodiversity. However, a failure to address effective land use could result in 626 species losing habitable areas given the increasing severity of climate change.
Thank you, the Food Foundation, for this paper that demonstrates the tremendous harms of meat consumption. In God’s infinite Light, may all soon turn vegan for good.
