25 March 2019: What’s the beef with beef? The persistent health effects of cattle slaughter bans in India

Using a triple differences-in-difference strategy along with an event study design, we show that cattle slaughter bans reduce the availability of beef for the poor. In the long-term we find that early life exposure to cow slaughter bans leads to lower levels of hemoglobin (Hb) for poor women in communities that traditionally eat beef, who are up to 10% more likely to be anaemic in their prime reproductive ages.
