Here’s why overpopulation and meat consumption are so intertwined

“The meat and dairy industry are intricately linked, and act as a support system for the marginalised communities of India. These industries pay the daily wages of many poor Indians. The dairy industry alone employs 8.47 million people.”

“The consumption of animal products contributes to more than one-quarter of the water footprint of humanity. The water needed to produce feed is the major factor behind the water footprint of animal products. Reviewing feed composition and the origin of feed ingredients is essential to find ways to reduce the water footprint of meat and dairy.”
