Environmental Impact of Meat Production

Environmental experts believe that red meat production has severe ecological consequences in addition to the economic costs.
American environmental experts have classified environmental and economical costs of producing some food products such as beef, poultry, diary, and eggs, says ISNA.
In the recent survey, five agro-livestock products were identified as the most expensive. Costs imposed by red meat production on environment are ten times greater than the other products.
Some of the environmental effects that have been associated with meat production are pollution through fossil fuel usage, and water and land consumption.
In comparison, it was found that for raising cattle, 28 times more land and 11 times more water is needed. This fact makes greenhouse gases production due to red meat industry, five times higher than the poultry and egg production sector.
