Two thirds of Brits would rather die early than give up meat, study shows
And Clarkson is one of them!
A survey of 2,000 people, conducted by OnePoll on behalf of No Meat May found that two thirds of Brits would rather die early than give up eating meat.
The study also found that more than half (51%) of British men and women associate a diet that contains a lot of meat with being ‘masculine’, while vegetarian (36%) and vegan (35%) diets are seen as more ‘feminine’. One third (30%) of men believe humans are meant to eat meat compared to less than a quarter (22%) of women.
More than one in 20 (6%) also said they would rather go to jail than stop eating meat, rising to 11% for those aged 25-34. While 27% of men would rather give up coffee and 19% would rather give up alcohol than meat, 18% also said they would stop eating meat if it improved their sexual performance and 35% said they would give it up if it improved their health.
On top of that, just 20% would give up meat to save future generations from struggling due to deep environmental implications.
So as you can see, humans at the moment are pigs, but not all of us.
