It seems that the Chinese health ministry has released dietary guidelines, supported by no lesser figures than Arnold Schwarzenegger and Avatar director James Cameron, with the goal of cutting meat consumption in China by 50% in the next 15 years.
If this goal was achieved it it would, I understand, mean a reduction in meat consumption that would be greater than all the meat consumed in the US.
I wonder how long it will take Europe and to me very importantly Scotland to issue similar guidelines. And again I have to ask if the science is there why are public bodies feeding meat to kids in school, to patients and staff in hospitals and elderly folk in care homes?
This is such a good step in the right direction both for the happy health of Chinese people as well as for a happy planet.
