In his editorial New Rule, Bill contends that humans can’t trash the environment – including animals – and not have it come back and kill them.
The disease is the second leading cause of cancer death in the U.S. after lung cancer, and kills around 31,620 people annually. It is most common in men over the age of 66, and African Americans. However, eating animal products, and dairy in particular, was associated with an increased or unchanged risk of being diagnosed with the disease.
Switching to a plant-based diet can help fight climate change, UN experts have said.
A major report on land use and climate change says the West’s high consumption of meat and dairy produce is fuelling global warming.
But scientists and officials stopped short of explicitly calling on everyone to become vegan or vegetarian.
Eating red and white meats are equally bad for your cholesterol, according to scientists. A new study from the Children’s Hospital Oakland Research Institute assigned participants to eat a diet rich in lean cuts of beef, lean cuts of chicken or turkey, or plant proteins, for one month each. The study found that LDL cholesterol levels were higher on both meat diets, compared to the plant protein diet.
People need to give up red meat to prevent catastrophic damage to the planet’s climate, a former government chief scientist has told Sky News.
Professor Sir David King, who is setting up a centre for climate repair at the University of Cambridge, said cattle and sheep produce so much greenhouse gas that diets must radically change to stop global warming.
I want to direct you to the 70% of the planet that was sidelined even in the sparse coverage of the new report: the seas. Here, life is collapsing even faster than on land. The main cause, the UN biodiversity report makes clear, is not plastic. It is not pollution, not climate breakdown, not even the acidification of the ocean. It is fishing.
