How Much Does Meat Actually Cost? 

Want to learn more about this video’s topic? Here are some keywords to get your googling started:
Externality: a cost or benefit caused by an activity that affects other parties but is not taken into consideration (e.g. by being reflected in purchase prices)
Hidden cost: a cost not included in the purchase price, such as additional expenses, opportunity costs, or externalities
Social Cost: an expense to society that is the sum of the private costs paid by a firm or individual, and the externalities paid by other parties
Reducetarianism: the practice of eating less meat (& dairy, eggs, & other animal products), which may be appealing because not everyone is able or willing to follow a completely meat-free diet.

For more: Check out my video Why Vaccines Work to learn how these life-saving inoculations work and why they’ve changed the world:
