Less Beef and More Beans. Report Recommends a New Diet for Planetary Health
(NEW YORK) — A hamburger a week, but no more — that’s about as much red meat people should eat to do what’s best for their health and the planet, according to a report seeking to overhaul the world’s diet.

It also comes amid recent studies of how eating habits aff...
