According to a studies from the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in 2017, the USA has the second highest meat consumption in the world with 124 kg meat per person per year. Only topped
by Hong Kong with 137 kg.
Mass consumption and production of meat causes not only animal suffering, but also accelerate climate change. Cattle breeding produces a lot of methane gas, rainforests are cleared to grow soy
for animal feed, ecosystems are getting destroyed. And of course – animals are treated like waste.
