Two out of every three participants in a U.S. consumer survey report that they are eating less of at least one type of meat, according to a study from researchers at the Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future, based at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
Meat consumption in the U.S. exceeds recommended levels, with significant consequences for public health and the environment.

The study was published in the July issue of the journal Public American Nutrition.
