    Default PCRM: "Meat is the New Tobacco"

    http://www.pcrm.org/media/good-medic...ng-a-dangerous

    A short excerpt:
    The meat industry is following the lead of the tobacco industry, selling overseas what will no longer sell in the United States.
    As cigarette smoking declined in the United States several decades ago, tobacco giants looked to foreign markets. In 2010, the United States exported more than 60 billion cigarettes. And earlier this year, a U.S. trade deal was proposed that would make it even easier for U.S. tobacco companies to export cigarettes.
    Like tobacco, meat eating is falling out of favor in the United States. Reaching a peak in 2004 at 201.5 pounds of meat per person per year, U.S. per capita meat consumption slid to 188 pounds by 2010—a 6 percent drop in six years. As Americans choose more plant-based meals, meat and dairy producers are sending cholesterol overseas.

    I will not eat anything that walks, swims, flies, runs, skips, hops or crawls.

    I think this is seen in other Western countries as well. Definitely in Holland where I'm from originally. They always run these eat meat campaigns, for years now, to get people back into eating more meat.

    I'm amazed though, I can't imagine eating up to 100kg's of meat in a year, or your body weight in meat, eeew it's just disgusting.

    Very interesting though, thanks for the link.
