The meat industry is not in the best of shape today.
A record number of Americans are working longer hours and more hours than they ever have before.
Millions of Americans have fewer hours to choose from for dinner.
Many Americans are eating less of what they grew up eating and instead eating what they can find.
And, at the same time, millions of Americans don’t eat meat anymore.
And those numbers are just beginning to show up in food-related health statistics.
A report released Monday by the Institute for Economics and Peace shows that in 2020, more than 6 million Americans died of an infection related to eating meat.
The meat-eating industry is also experiencing an epidemic of food poisoning, which is killing more Americans every year than car accidents.
As a result, some companies are looking to lower their meat costs.
In addition, some of the top companies in the industry are shifting away from meat and towards lean and organic meat, a trend that’s being led by big food companies like McDonald’s and Burger King.
The shift from meat to organic is expected to cost consumers more and could push them to eat more animal-based products.
In 2020, McDonald’s will cut meat consumption in half, the company announced in a statement.
Burger King is also working to cut its meat use by half.
The report also found that in the first three quarters of 2021, the number of meat-free meals sold in the United States fell by almost a third, to 6.5 million.
This was a record low for the industry, as it has traditionally fallen to less than 1 million meals per day in recent years.
The study also found a record number are opting to buy meat alternatives, including soy, flax, and even apple cider vinegar, all of which have been shown to reduce meat-related illnesses and deaths.
And while the industry has long been criticized for its poor health and environmental impact, the report also points to the meat-based alternatives’ health benefits.
The food-producing industry spent $20 billion in 2016 to improve animal welfare, including raising the minimum age for laying hens from 18 to 20, making it easier for animals to be raised and slaughtered humanely, and making it harder for animals and people to die from factory farming.
But while the meat and poultry industry is facing serious health challenges, there is hope.
Some of the world’s largest food companies have pledged to improve their food safety and environmental standards, including McDonald’s, Burger King, and Tyson Foods, which are all among the leaders in the global meat-eaters’ movement.
And the Trump administration has recently put forward a plan to reduce U.S. meat production by half by 2025.
