New research from the University of Pennsylvania has found that Chinese eat less pork than Americans do.
The study, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, was conducted in Shanghai, where the pork consumption rate is much higher than in the United States.
It found that pork consumption was down by 15.6 percent in the city, from a year earlier, but up by 4.9 percent in Shanghai.
The authors say the decrease was partly due to the country’s recent crackdown on the production of pork in a bid to combat the spread of pork-related diseases.
In China, pork consumption is considered taboo and not considered healthy.
It was the first time that researchers had analyzed pork consumption in China to determine if consumption was higher in China or not.
It also found that the decline was not because of the ban on pork production, as many other countries have.
Instead, the researchers say, consumption of pork was higher because of an increase in consumption of other meats.
“There are many reasons for the decrease in pork consumption, but one of the most important was the reduction in pork sales,” said co-author Jianhong Li, an assistant professor of sociology and economics at Penn.
“Sales of pork are down because of a crackdown on pork sales in China, and people are looking for alternative meats to eat.
But the consumption of meat alternatives is on the rise in the country, and that’s partly responsible for the increase in pork.”
The researchers found that about 2.9 million people in Shanghai consumed less than two pounds of pork a day.
This figure included about 2 million people who said they did not eat pork at all.
They found that only 7 million people were actually eating less pork per day.
But, because people eat more meat than pork, people are eating less than their weight-for-age and weight-based recommendations.
People in Shanghai are also eating more vegetables, fruits and other vegetables.
This is due to a decrease in the number of Chinese people who were in school, the study found.
Chinese children are being encouraged to eat more vegetables and other fruits and vegetables.
But the increase is not just because of this new emphasis on vegetables and fruits.
According to the researchers, people in China are eating more meat.
People are also consuming more rice, rice-based products like tofu, and meat substitutes like pork sausage.
This is partly because people are living longer, but more importantly because they are consuming more meat and other foods.
They are eating meat substitutes in particular, and there are a lot of other things that are contributing to the increase.
The researchers believe that as the world becomes wealthier and more connected, it will allow for more people to consume meat and animal products.
