A World of Meat

Hi there,

I’m writing to let you know that we’ve just published a new info-graphic showing which countries are eating the most meat every year, on a per capita basis, and which are eating the least. An increase in the consumption of meat is directly correlated to an increase in a country’s economic development. As a country becomes richer, its citizens generally eat more meat, a much denser source of protein than is available in poorer countries. But the range of the amount of meat eaten in different countries around the world is truly astounding, from barely enough for a few hamburgers to the weight of several people.

I’d love for you to check it out and share it with your readers.

Here’s the article: http://www.good.is/post/transparency-which-countries-eat-the-most-meat/
