Health News: The U.S. could be the first nation to phase out meat and dairy in 2020
It’s not a great idea for your health to go vegan, but we’re actually about to have a chance to try that out for real.
In the United States, a national meat and milk ban was enacted in November of 2019.
That ban was supposed to be phased out in 2024.
But a few months later, Congress voted to extend the ban until 2020.
Now, the Food and Drug Administration is set to take the first step in making the transition.
And now, that’s just one of many ways that Americans are going to start taking a more holistic approach to our diets.
A new study conducted by the USDA and published in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association, found that if all Americans went vegan by 2020, it would save the United Kingdom $1 trillion in greenhouse gas emissions over the next 20 years.
The report looked at the amount of meat and animal protein that Americans consume per person and the amount that people in the United State would eat if they did the same thing.
The researchers determined that if Americans followed a vegan diet, they would save nearly $1,500 a year on food costs.
In 2018, about 20 million people were eating a vegan, or vegetarian, diet.
In 2020, that number will be higher, the researchers said.
It’s not just about health, though.
The study also showed that a large portion of the country could begin eating less meat in 2020.
That could make it easier for the government to get rid of a lot of meat-based products, such as bacon, chicken and turkey.
The study found that by 2020 the number of Americans who ate no meat would fall to around 18.4 million.
That number is still higher than in 2017, when only 5.7 million people did so.
The USDA is planning to begin selling food to people who are on a vegan or vegetarian diet, including at the state and local level.
