Chemistry Nobel Laureate Dr. Yuan-Tseh Lee said in a discussion on September 21 that the survival of humans would be aided by the reduction of meat consumption. “The fewer meat consumers there are, the better humans’ chances of survival on the planet,” said the former president of Taiwan’s research institute, Academia Sinica. The discussion was in support of Meat Free Mondays, which was initiated in Taiwan in 2009. Lee also urged people to live a simpler life eating less meat and more vegetables in order to take action, warning against the threat of future flooding, like that seen this year in Pakistan, as global warming’s effects increase.
