Over-consumption of animal protein is a serious environmental, ethical and public health problem. Livestock farming is today the main cause of accelerated loss of biodiversity, and one of the activities that contributes most to global warming. The overall level of consumption of animal protein, and more specifically of meat, is already above that recommended by several institutions, especially the World Health Organization. The thesis seeks to address the consumption of meat in two countries where meat consumption has reached very high levels. Despite the inertia of both governments in counteracting the overconsumption of meat, the two countries represent different situations.
