According to UN data about 15,000L of water is needed per kilogram of beef. On top of that, the huge strain beef and other meat-we-eat places on the environment in terms of clearing & deforestation and pollution from factory farms, as well as other nutrient and welfare concerns you might have, it’s worth us all reducing our meat consumption. As countries become richer they eat more meat and we just do not have the earth space or resources to sustain this. Try meatless Mondays to get started. Or a vegetarian month. See how you feel. Let’s aim to eat meat once a week, or not at all.
