According to recent results put forward by researchers from Yale University, Bard College, and Weizmann Institute of Science, the carbon release rates when you’re consuming chicken is much lower than when you’re consuming beef. You can help the earth by cutting your carbon release rates in half, just by replacing your meat.

Results show that even a slight change in our daily lives can make a big difference in the fight with climate change.


The fact is that the amount of energy, fertilizer and land used for beef production generates 10 times more carbon emission in comparison and hence, makes chicken more appealing in terms of environmentalism. Cattle, by their nature require more to feed and a grand land area as a result of their size when compared to other smaller livestock such as chicken.

According to a recent research from Harvard University and a report from EAT-Lancet Commission, choosing a plant-based diet rather than eating animal-based products is both healthier and better for the environment.

Though limiting all meat consumption worldwide is deemed necessary for, if not reverting but stopping the global warming, eating chicken over beef is one of the ways you may be of help if you do not wish to stop consuming animal products.

    Ooooh! This is exactly what it says. I love it when everything is in place and at the same time understandable for a mere mortal.
