About this book

This book contains the proceedings of a recently held conference which aimed to present a balanced view on the two main issues confronting the meat industry: is meat consumption harmful to health and does meat production damage the environment? Eminent speakers examined the evidence on nutrition and climate change and also explained what steps are being taken to ameliorate the problems, how meat consumption is changing in Britain and other countries and how meat contributes to our culture.
