Eating Less Meat Is The Best Thing You Can Do For The Planet In 2019, Scientists Say

Are you ready to change your diet to help preserve the planet?

The year 2019 just started a few days ago and people have already begun doing their new year’s resolution, which usually consists of losing weight, eating healthy, focusing more on school and work, and many others. However, a new report revealed that the best thing that you could actually do this year is eating less meat as it could help save the planet.

Scientists have concluded that eating less meat could help mitigate the environmental pressures of global food production and allow the planet to better support a rapidly growing population. By cutting down on the amount of meat that we consume, we can also help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions that are caused by cows and fertilizers. We’ll also reduce the pollution that seeps into our streams, rivers, and the ocean.

As a single person, it’s all too easy to think that changing your diet won’t make a difference but if everyone plays their part in 2019, we’ll be on the right path.

Dr. Marco Springmann, from the Nuffield Department of Population Health at the University of Oxford, said:

“Without concerted action, we found that the environmental impacts of the food system could increase by 50 to 90% by 2050 as a result of population growth and the rise of diets high in fats, sugars, and meat.”

Earlier this year it was reported the world is in the midst of sixth mass extinction, the likes of which hasn’t been seen for 66 million years, and this could cause two-thirds of the world’s species to become extinct.

Scientists and environmentalists hope that 2019 will be a key year for changing the broken global food system that we currently have. We’re looking forward to playing our part, and the “flexitarian” diet is making it easier than ever before.

There are other methods suggested of course, from those that don’t want to give up on their meat such as a tax on red meat or feeding seaweed to cows to reduce their methane output, to some even suggesting eating insects instead of steaks and pork.

Couples Who Post Less Selfies On Social Media Are Happier Than Those Who Share A lot

They’re probably not as happy as they look.

There’s often no real way to tell how happy a couple is from the outside looking in as everyone is pretty good at pretending when they want to be. However, a new study has shown that one indicator of happiness is how much the couple post about their relationship on social media.

As it turns out, those couples who clog up your news feed with selfies of themselves even in the most mundane of situations might be doing so to mask their relationship insecurities. They post every activity, no matter how small it is as they see it as another opportunity to remind the world how happy they are together. But an expert revealed that real happy couples don’t feel the need to post anything to prove their happiness.

Nikki Goldstein, a sexologist and relationship expert from Australia, said:...
