Today just a couple of quick links about vegetarianism and meat. The title of the second article, for me, pretty much succinctly answers the question posed in the title of the first article.
The two articles don’t actually have anything to do with each other – the NYT opinion piece on eating less meat is from January, and I just saw the pink slime news item today. As Bittman states, we’re eating less meat because meat’s expensive and because we want to be healthier. But man oh man, was I glad to be eating healthier already when I read about that pink slime.
