Pork meat hangs from hooks at the Jianshe Xincun Market in Guangzhou, Guangdong province, China on Nov. 16, 2008. Meat consumption is rapidly rising in China as people become wealthier and consume more. China's demand for meat is also putting extreme demand on more animal feed made from soybeans. China imports more soybean than it produces, importing from the United States, Brazil and Argentina. Rainforests in the Amazon are being cut and burned to make more room for soybean and corn farms to take advantage of China's demand for the grain.
