Brits Cutting Back on Meat

Eating In 2015, the World Health Organization labeled bacon, sausage, hot dogs and other processed meats with the same carcinogenic label as for cigarettes. According to the Mintel Meat-Free Foods 2017 Report (Tinyurl.com/MintelMeatReport), 28 percent of Britons have now drastically reduced their meat intake. Reasons vary.

About 49 percent of those polled that have given up meat or are considering it say they feel prompted by health warnings. Other motivators include weight management (29 percent), worries about animal welfare (24 percent) and environmental concerns (24 percent).
