Abstract: Scientific evidences indicate that the production of meat requires an abnormal consumption of natural resources, such as energy, fresh water, and land occupancy, in comparison with other types of food with equivalent nutritional power. The article presents, by means of easy-reading tables, the main data related to such an environmental impact, and suggests adopting the most simple but effective remedial strategy: to reduce the consumption of animal proteins in the everyday diet.
