2 Background History on Meatless Monday Originated during WWI Current Campaign Launched in 2003 Reduce Saturated Fat Intake by 15% Healthy People 2010 Recommendation Developed in Association with JHSPH CLF Serves as Scientific Advisor Meatless Monday at Johns Hopkins University

3 Reduce risk of mortality A recent study followed over 500,000 U.S. men and women over 10 years. Study participants who consumed the highest amounts of red and processed meat had significantly higher risks of overall mortality, cancer mortality and cardiovascular disease mortality. Reduce risk of inflammatory bowel disease A 2010 study of 67,581 women in France indicated that diets high in meat protein were associated with an increased risk of inflammatory bowel disease. The authors hypothesize that the increased risk is caused by a release of compounds that are toxic to the colon. They suggest limiting meat intake to the recommended daily amount in order to reduce the risk of IBD. Reduce cancer risk Recent studies found diets abundant in red and processed meats have been associated with increased cancer risk, especially of the digestive tract Meatless Monday at Johns Hopkins University Why - Health Concerns

4 Why - Environmental Concerns Water consumed at unsustainable rates About 2,000 gallons of water used to produce 1 pound of beef* Meat production heavily reliant on fossil fuel 40 calories of fossil fuel energy go into every calorie of feed lot beef compared to the 2.2 calories of fossil fuel energy needed to produce one calorie of plant-based protein* U.S. Agriculture Dominated by Livestock Production 50-70% of all grain grown in U.S. is fed to livestock & poultry* Livestock production accounts for 70% of all agricultural land # Food Animal Waste & Water Pollution EPA: agricultural operations, including animal confinement operations, are a significant source of water pollution States estimate that agriculture contributes to the impairment of at least 173,629 river miles, 3,183,159 lake acres and 2,971 estuary miles *Pimental & Pimental, 2003 Meatless Monday at Johns Hopkins University
