Can eating less meat reduce our ecological footprint?

    In a way yes. The meat industry requires huge amounts of grains to feed the livestock, grain that could alternatively go to feeding other people. Thus if we ate less meat we would need less land for cultivation because all the grain being produced would go directly to feeding people. In actually, we only need to eat very little meat to be healthy (i.e. to get the protein and essential fatty acids that they contain), so must of the meat we eat is not actually contributing to our general health (and in fact if detrimental in the sense of fat content). The link below is abit bias but it does have some good information on the topic.
