Animal Agriculture Responsible For Thousands Of Air Quality-Related Deaths 05/14/2021

Animal agriculture is responsible for thousands of air quality-related deaths, according to a new report. A new study has been published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. It describes poor air quality as the ‘largest environmental health risk’ in the US and worldwide. The report also estimates agricultural production results in a staggering 17,900 annual air quality-related deaths. Moreover, 80 percent of the 15,9000 deaths caused by food-related fine particulate matter (PM2.5) pollution are attributable to animal-based foods. This includes both directly from animal production and from growing animal feed. “Nationwide dietary shifts that decrease consumption of animal-based foods can lead to large decreases in agricultural PM2.5-related death rates,” the report states. “This simultaneously reduces direct damages from livestock waste management and indirect damages from feed production.” The report also says that 10,700-13,100 deaths could be prevented each year ‘from shifts’ to vegan diets’.
