You just have to go read the whole article. It might just change your life. I’m one of those who just plain doesn’t want to know where his food comes from most of the time, but this article really did open my eyes about the impact our habits have. Thanks to my lovely wife though, we usually have a weekly menu with only one, maybe two dinners with red meat, and we have at least one vegetarian meal weekly as well.
All this is to say, get off your duff and go help Shane buy a dairy cow! If he hits his goal today, he gives up red meat until Memorial Day! That’s like another 4 months for those of you who didn’t major in math like me.
