Go Vegan - Save the Planet?

Joseph Poore, Lead Researcher, Department of Zoology and the School of Geography and Environment, University of Oxford

Giving up meat and dairy in your diet could be the “single biggest way” to reduce your environmental impact on earth, a new study suggests. Researchers have found that while meat and dairy provide just 18% of calories and 37% of protein, it uses around 83% of farmland and produces 60% of agriculture’s greenhouse gas emissions. It also suggests that cutting these products from your diet could reduce food’s carbon emissions by up to 75%. We find out more from the lead researcher of the study, Joseph Poore, from the Department of Zoology and the School of Geography and Environment, at the University of Oxford.
