I just read an interesting article on Forbes Magazine website (Click Here for Article!) stating that Americans have decreased their meat consumption by 12.2% since the big 2007 E. Coli scare that caused Hudson Foods to recall 25 MILLION pounds of ground beef, throughout American markets. Being that an average cow weighs about 1,600 pounds, I guesstimate that means about 15,625 cows lost their lives just to be pulverized, processed, and then thrown in the trash and not consumed. Isn't it sad that American's have only decreased meat consumption by 12.2% over FIVE years!?!? That's only 2.44% per year. How "utterly" depressing.
