While nobody wants to get sick or injured while traveling abroad, if you're going to do it, make sure it's in the U.K. That's because all public hospitals in the U.K. are proposing to start offering meat-free menus as part of a National Health Service plan to curb the carbon emissions that cause climate change.
These hospitals should be seriously applauded for making progress and doing something positive in the fight against global warming (not to mention cruelty to animals). You don't have to be a scientist or climate-change expert to know that raising animals for food is the world's leading cause of carbon dioxide emissions.
