Mark Bittman in Sunday's New York Times has a major article titled, "Rethinking the Meat-Guzzler".
In just two online pages, he covers a lot of ground. It is very well written and easy-to-read. Dive in, it is worth your time.
In general, it is about the cost of meat (not just $), and, makes a strong case for cutting down on your consumption of meat.
One sentence quite surprised me, "Americans are downing close to 200 pounds of meat, poultry and fish per capita per year (dairy and eggs are separate, and hardly insignificant), an increase of 50 pounds per person from 50 years ago."
