I will try (but it'll be easy ... I'll be sitting in an Air France plane, heading back to Paris .. and plane food, it's easy to say no thanks!)

I'm sorry but I don't agree with this at all. Patti, please don't think I'm attacking you, but this theory baffles me....First of all, I think it's silly to blame obesity and it's related health problems on meat; I agree, portion control needs to be addressed, but if you look at those same people who are eating twice the recommended amount of meat I'm sure you'll find that they are also eating twice the recommended amount of other foods. What about the potato chips, soda, and french fries? I think it would be more fair to blame these products, than to blame meat and dairy alone.
And blaming the amount of greenhouse gas, water and gasoline consumption on this industry? Rediculous. Maybe the studies should take a closer look at the number of vehicles on the road today, or the water bottling plants...Sure, animals contribute, but so do you and I. I think that this study was just looking for someone to point a finger at.
Secondly - lets just assume that chosing to eat less meat would make such a huge impact. You're trying to be economically responsible, but what effect will this have on the farmers that bring that meat to your table?
