The effect the animal agriculture
industries are having on the planet are devastating. For this reason, it’s
becoming clear that meat and dairy taxation is necessary.

dairy taxation of 20% is necessary to offset the carbon footprint of the animal

Meanwhile in China, The Ministry of Health urged citizens to limit product consumption, with the aim of reducing meat consumption by 50%.
