According to this article cutting one sausage out of your diet a day is necessary to save the planet. A report which has been backed by the Environment Secretary partly blames meat eaters for climate change. Scientists called for a 30% reduction in the number of farm animals bred for meat in order to prevent rising temperatures and rising sea levels. This 30% reduction is equivalent to seven sausages, two chicken breasts, four lamb chops or 12 rashers of bacon and according to the report would not only help the environment but also bring significant health benefits such as reducing premature deaths from heart disease.
