Nearly 1 in 4 Americans Cut Back on Meat Consumption

Twenty-three percent of Americans report that they have eaten less meat in the past year than they had previously, according to a new Gallup poll. The vast majority (72 percent) say they are eating the same amount, and 5 percent say they are eating more meat than in the past.

The biggest factor in reducing meat consumption is health concerns; nine in 10 say it is a major (70 percent) or minor reason (20 percent) that has caused them to cut back on meat. Environmental concerns are the second biggest factor, with 49 percent of Americans saying it’s a major reason they cut back, and 21 percent saying it’s a minor one.
