Australians have been advised by a well-known public health group to consume less red meat which will not only do their health a world of good but also help the environment.

"A small reduction in eating red meat and dairy would be a positive step for the environment and generally a positive step for health," News.com.au quoted him as saying.

"Reducing the amount of food that comes from cattle would actually have a greater impact on the environment than sourcing (food) locally.

"Australians tend to eat more red meat than is necessary," he added.

He further handed out advice that eating in groups, such as with family and friends, further eggs on healthier eating habits than dining alone.
