Why should we eat less meat?
Excessive meat consumption is linked with an increased risk of coronary heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and some cancers. Additionally, livestock substantially contributes to greenhouse gas emissions, degrades vast regions of land, pollutes water resources, and negatively affects the natural biodiversity. Moderating meat consumption could therefore help to improve human and environmental health, but little is known about how to encourage this behaviour change.
Engaging the public in our research!
The results from the intervention are now being analysed and will be available on the LEAP outputs page in due course, however this study would not have been possible without the generosity of the volunteers who helped shape the programme and to those who took part in the study.
