Excessive cost of animal protein
Nature: Animal protein foods are very popular but their production is very inefficient in its utilization of land (as compared to grain or vegetable production). Consequently, the price of animal protein foods is high and beyond the reach of many low-income populations. As the amount of available agricultural land per capita decreases, the inefficiency of livestock raising becomes an increasing burden.
