How Much Meat Should You Eat? How Often?

How often should you eat meat? Vegetarian: “Never.” Michael Pollan and Mark Bittman: “Less than you do now.” NPR: “the best evidence suggests that cutting back to two to three servings a week is a good guide.”⠀ ⠀ Producing meat takes a lot of water. The global average water footprint – or the total amount of water needed – to produce one pound of beef is 1,799 gallons of water; one pound of pork takes 576 gallons of water. As a comparison, the water footprint of soybeans is 216 gallons; corn is 108 gallons. – says @food_tank⠀
