Vegetarianism in the News March 9, 2012

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.

We’re eating less meat. Why?

70 Percent of Ground Beef at Supermarkets Contains ‘Pink Slime’

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.

    We really never know much about where our food comes from! I fear everything is about $$$, and not about health or nutrition. I just reposted today about my transition to being vegetarian: http://catnipkiss.wordpress.com/2012/03/09/animal-love-the-musings-of-a-soon-to-be-vegetarian/

    I think it’s a great and timely change (at least for me) 🙂

    I can’t even read about it. I’m just thankful that I cut it out of my diet 2 years ago. Gross.
