Is having hamburger meat more green than having steak?

    When it comes to animal protein ‘greenness’ the style doesn’t mater as much as the type, source, and quantity. From an environmental impact point of view beef takes the most resources compared to poultry for instance. It also isn’t really sustainable for everyone in the world to eat more than 3oz of animal protien a week. Americans especially obviously eat way more than that just in a single sitting.

    Ground beef does however have more health concerns than a steak would. A single hamburger patty can have as many as 40 individual animals in the serving increasing the likelyhood of getting a food borne disease. Obviously a steak only can come from one animal.
