Yes, Plant - Based meat is better for the planet
And thanks to Vox for writing about this! This week’s article on the popular site delves into the environmental and humane aspect of plant-based meat by saying, Plant proteins, even if processed into imitation burgers, have smaller climate, water, and land impacts than conventional meats. In fact, plant-based meat has been found to have 30 times less of an impact on CO2 equivalent emissions as beef and 6 times less than pork or chicken.
It also indicates that reducing meat consumption would “also reduce animal suffering and the risk of both animal-borne disease and antibiotic resistance. The criticisms against the new wave of meatless meat appear to be more rooted in broad opposition to food technology rather than a true environmental accounting — and they muddy the waters in the search for climate solutions at a time when clarity is sorely needed.”
Bravo, Vox, and thanks for bringing this vital information to the world.
