 It is advisable to eat less meat In the first place an adult needs only 75 grams or less than 3 ounces, to get all nutritional benefits. It is proven that eating too much meat is one of the causes of obesity and raised risks of coronary diseases, the latter, especially with red meat. See also facts about meat nutrition
Furthermore eating less meat allows fewer cattle, which is better for the environment. One cow is contaminating up to four times as much as a car, in this case with principally Methane, the second most important gas causing the greenhouse effect. It is however 21 to 25 times more aggressive than Carbon Dioxide, also called Global Warming Potential.

When we need to breed fewer cattle, the effect on the environment is huge. Fewer forests will be slashed to convert into pastures, fewer resources like fuel, gas, soil, water, grains, etc, will be needed to feed and service the greater livestock. According to the FAO, about 60% of the world’s agricultural land is used for grazing almost 400 million cattle and 600 million smaller ruminants.

Livestock produces lots of contaminants as ammonia, and the globally affecting greenhouse gases as Carbon Dioxide, Methane, Nitrous Oxide and Hydrogen Sulphate, contributing to global warming. Methane is some 23 times as aggressive as Carbon Dioxide. Not to speak of secondary pollution by pesticides used on livestock.
