In 2015, the World health Organization labeled processed meats with the same carcinogenic label as cigarettes.

There aren't many things people will still indulge in when they're considered to probably be carcinogenic, but meat has a powerful hold on both the markets and people's eating culture. 

In one country, at least, the science is starting to shift the culture. In the last six months, 28 percent of British people have drastically reduced their meat intake, according to Veg News.
