Western nations have traditionally been the most meat-eating nations in the world, but now it appears that some of those countries are turning to a more sustainable and healthy source of protein, too.
According to research from the International Food Policy Research Institute, the most-meat-eaten countries are:Turkey, France, the United Kingdom, Denmark, Ireland, and Poland.
The United States and the United Arab Emirates, which are two of the most heavily meat-eaters in the region, also fall into this category.
The research was conducted by comparing the diet of countries from 18 different countries in the Middle East, Asia, and Africa and found that meat consumption was the single most important factor that determined the countries’ meat consumption.
Accordingly, the researchers looked at the total protein intake and meat intake per capita for each country.
They found that the meat-exporting countries had the lowest total protein and highest meat consumption per capita in the study, with a median total protein of just under 2.6 grams per person per day.
The countries with the highest meat intake were also the countries with highest meat-diet-related mortality, and the countries that had the highest dietary cholesterol and saturated fat intakes were also in the top three countries in terms of meat consumption and meat-related health risks.
“The findings from this research highlight that consumption of meat in Western nations has a substantial impact on public health, which is critical for the sustainability of these food chains,” said Dr. Joao Paulo da Silva, an associate professor in the School of Public Health at the University of Sao Paulo and one of the study’s authors.
The findings of the research suggest that the current trend towards meat consumption is a result of environmental and social factors, including poor health outcomes and rising obesity rates.
In addition, the meat industry has become a significant contributor to climate change, and is currently the world’s largest greenhouse gas producer.
For example, a 2014 study published in the Lancet, found that people in the United States are consuming twice as much meat per year as people in other countries.
In addition, meat consumption in the developing world has increased dramatically in recent years.
A 2015 study from the World Health Organization found that consumption in sub-Saharan Africa had increased from 2.8 kilograms (7.1 pounds) per person in 2010 to 13 kilograms (28.4 pounds) in 2015.
Meanwhile, meat prices have risen, making it increasingly difficult to buy meat in many countries.
For example, in the U.S., the average price of a pound of chicken, a beef product, rose from $0.35 to $0,40 per pound from 2007 to 2014, while the average cost of a turkey meat product has increased from $2.40 to $3.00 per pound over the same period.
