Re: Saturated fat is not the major issue
As was mentioned in several of the responses, we should not focus on food in a reductionist manner. The production of animal products can have a beneficial or detrimental effect on the environment. This topic is addressed very well on a Ted talk by Allan Savory entitled Allan Savory: How to fight desertification and reverse climate change
The nutritional characteristics of animal products from livestock fed in a free range setting is distinctly different than the products derived from industrial agriculture. It can be a win-win situation where the environment is improved while producing healthful animal products.
