Meat-Eating Increases Deaths

New study finds that meat-eating increases deaths by 45,000 each year.

A new study from Oxford University concludes that excessive meat-eating is responsible for 45,000 preventable deaths each year in the UK. The study, commissioned by Friends of the Earth for its Healthy Planet Eating report, analyzed the impact diets had on health, and the toll eating meat more than three times a week took. The researchers found that meat-eaters in the UK receive an average of 17 percent of their calories from meat, a third more than recommended; and the study reinforced that red meat is a cause of bowel cancer, and meat and dairy are linked to heart disease and obesity.
