Arnie wants us to eat less meat to save the world

Our Automologist, MAC, once proposed that if the world ate less meat, there would be less air pollution and now guess who agrees with him. Some know him as the Terminator, some as the once Governor of California and some are familiar with him as the now outspoken environmentalist - Arnold Schwarzenegger.

According to Arnie, people should give up meat for just one or two days a week, since abstaining completely would be "too demanding". Farming contributes to an estimated 28% of greenhouse gases, and 1 kilogramme of meat requires between 3-10 kilogrammes of vegetable protein to produce. The United Nations cautions that emissions from farming, fisheries and forestry is expected to increase by 30% by 2050.

Vegetarians all over the world are delighted that this superstar muscleman has joined their ranks, but men who want to emulate Arnie's Terminator-body need not dismay, for the former Mr Universe said that many successful bodybuilders do not eat meat.

"You can get your protein many different ways," he said. "I have seen many bodybuilders and (weight) lifters that are vegetarian...you have to start slowly. It's a very big challenge but it doesn't mean it shouldn't be done."
