Is eating no meat actually doing more harm than good?

I agree which much of what is written here. The problem with meat eating (ignoring the ethics of eating another animal), lies in the expectations of quantity and type of meat. Eating animals that can be raised without feedlots, that don’t require intensive farming methods, animals that can be raised by grazing; that is ideal. However our current population levels and the belief in huge steaks demand feedlot-raised cattle; this is not sustainable or healthy for the land (or consumer). Countries like Australia should be farming kangaroos, not cattle! Countries like England should be raising sheep for meat on the uplands, not having land set-aside from farming.
