Chinese Government Announces: Time To Cut Meat Consumption by 50%

China plans to reduce meat consumption

China’s health ministry released new dietary guidelines — with profound implications. The guidelines encourage the nation’s 1.3 billion people to reduce their meat consumption by 50% between now and 2030. If achieved, these guidelines would lead to a reduction in meat consumption that would be greater than all the meat currently consumed in the United States. The Chinese communist party has found unusual allies.

Former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and Avatar producer James Cameron have produced a series of provocative videos aimed at supporting the cause. Here’s a look behind the scenes of their efforts: In the last 30 years, Chinese meat consumption has quadrupled. As Dr. T. Colin Campbell documented in “The China Study,” the rapid rise in Chinese meat consumption has produced exploding rates of cancer, diabetes, obesity, and heart disease.
