A Vegetarian Diet is WORSE for the Environment Than A Meat-Eating Diet. In case you missed the headlines yesterday there was some big news about vegetarian diets floating around the internet. New research has just shown that believe it or not a vegetarian diet is actually WORSE for the environment than a meat-eating diet!
This new study flies in the face of conventional wisdom and an entire body of research showing that vegetarian and vegan diets are significantly better for the environment. But everyone loves a contrary point of view, especially when it gives us good news about our bad habits!
See, it's been a rough go for bacon recently. The World Health Organization recently declared that bacon and other processed meats cause cancer. And meat in general has come under fire as a top contributor to climate change.
So meat eaters were rejoicing at yesterday's headlines, including that lettuce was three times worse for the environment than bacon!
So, how true is this claim and others that a vegetarian diet is actually worse for the environment than a meat-eating diet? What did the researchers actually find?
Hi! I'm Devin. I'm your health coach. Over the past 7 years I've moved from being pescatarian to vegetarian to vegan to fully Plantiful. What is fully Plantiful? It's a 100% plant-based diet, and it helped me drop 30 pounds without trying! No, seriously.
A Plant-Based Diet is powerful. Research shows it can help prevent and reverse our leading killers, like heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and certain cancers!
