52 kilos of meat a year per person


We eat an average of one kilo of meat per week. Roughly, three times more than what the official dietary guidelines recommend (350 grams). What is the good news? Meat is a good source of protein and various vitamins and minerals. What is the bad news? There is a proven correlation between certain cancers and a high intake of processed meat. Meat production is also bad for the climate. For more information, watch this “Explainer” video from DR.
