Meatless Monday

Why There’s Less Red Meat On Many American Plates

As a part of an NPR-Truven Health Analytics Health Poll, 3,000 adults across the country were asked about their meat consumption. Here is what they said…..

Meat consumption poll

The majority of those polled (56 percent) said they eat red meat (defined as all meat products except poultry and fish) one to four times per week, and nearly the same number (55 percent) say their meat intake hasn’t changed in the past three years. But 39 percent said they eat less meat than they did three years ago.

Among those who are eating less meat, 66 percent said they’re worried about the health effects; 47 percent said cost is a factor, while 30 percent were concerned about animal welfare, and 29 percent have limited their meat intake out of a concern for the environment.
