Forbes Quoted the CEF's Infographic about the Environmental Impacts of Chinese Pork Industry

May 17, 2014

In the latest aticle, What the Pork? China, Pigs and Poop, Beth Hoffman reported the environmental impacts of raising livestock, and quoted the CEF's infographic about Chinese pork industry.

"In China, where pork reigns supreme – they eat 81 pounds per person – there are now 94 pigs per 100 acres of cropland (in the U.S. there are 20 per 100 acres).  And that concentration of animals is causing havoc in the environment.  In fact, agriculture now plays a bigger role in causing water pollution than does industry in the country," she writes.
