White beans Peanut butterSoy:Excess amounts of amino acidsEasy to grow and useSoy proteinSoy flour Ex: used in bacon bitsWWII: soybeans were used in NA and UK as a replacement for the meat that was scarce Video 7:Red meat consumption:NA - major part of the diet Study: ~38,000 men and ~84,000 women were studied for the connection between processed and unprocessed red meat consumption and mortalityFindings: There is an enhanced mortality by ~13% based on an individual’s consumption of processed > unprocessed red meat 1 serving unprocessed red meat per day = 1.13 mortality 1 serving processed red meat per day = 1.2~8-9% fewer deaths if individuals had consumed less than 0.5 servings/day

Meta-analysis on red meat consumption: nine studies were included to summarize evidence on red meat and process meat consumption in relationship to mortalityFindings: ~20% mortality enhancement is due to eating one more than a portion/day of processed meat or red meat - not unprocessedred meat Depends on individual levelRaising meat:To raise and slaughter one cow = 5-7 barrels of oil energy1/16th of energy to grow certain vegetables in comparison to beefCarbon footprint: 24:1 vegetable:beef production that results in CO2 in atmosphere In hectare, ~54 kg of soy protein produce around 3 kg of beef as a result of feeding that soy protein to the cattle Efficiency of protein production:Beef:5%Grain to protein ratio: 7-16:1Pork:12%Grain to protein ratio: 4:1Chicken:18%Grain to protein ratio: 2:1Milk - 23%Eggs - 23%Farmed fish: Grain to protein ratio: 1.5:1Asian markets increase consumption of red meat more than NA markets Ex: China imports for meat surged in 2012, with an extreme increase in 2013/2014Recommended portion size:~3 oz or a deck of cards is recommendedAverage 8 oz portion size given at restaurants Protein alternatives:Ex: McGill students awarded $1 million Hult Prize in plan to produce lime cricket chips/insect protein out of insectsGerman cockroach: 44% protein in terms of efficiency of feed to body substance Beef: 10% protein in terms of efficiency of feed to body substance
