126. The OP wasn't exactly a call to revolution.
Edited on Wed Jul-20-11 04:17 PM by sudopod
from the article:

"The goal is to really make this information accessible to consumers," said Kari Hamerschlag, an agriculture analyst with the research and advocacy group. "On the health side, we really pulled together all of the information and tried to make it as clear as possible that there's not just one reason to limit meat consumption; there are a whole host of reasons."

The report, which weaves together statistics from various earlier studies, allows that meat can be an important source of protein and vitamins when eaten in moderation. But in the U.S., moderation may be a problem. The report cites data from the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization suggesting that Americans consume almost 60 percent more meat than their European counterparts, and four times more than in many developing countries. And much of that meat is either red or processed.
"

So when people lose their minds and complain about the veggienazis prying their baconators from their cold dead fingers on account of the OP, then yeah, it's funny, but not ironically. :p
