Meat Alternatives Examined

GOOD compares three popular meat alternatives to eating meat products.

The conclusion was that while organic, locally produced, and grass-fed meat might produce less of an impact on the planet, that meat-free substitutions are ultimately the most sustainable and healthful option available to consumers. Last week, Slate examined the controversial issue of grass-fed cows versus cows fed only grain on factory farms and concluded that health risks were almost identical among the two. Both investigations encouraged reducing meat consumption from diets.
