More meat will be eaten than ever before in history
(Fox News) Love meat? You may be happy to know that the meat industry just keeps growing. The Food and Agriculture organization now predicts 76 percent global consumption by 2050. That means more meat will be eaten than ever before in history, according to the U.N.
Eating more may not save food from going to waste, though. Experts say about one-third of foods produced for consumption never reach people. About 25 percent of the meat produced isn’t eaten, the equivalent of 75-million cows.
