Meat

Allison Van Dusen of Forbes says In 2000, total meat consumption, including red meat, poultry and fish, reached 195 pounds per person — 57 pounds above the average annual consumption in the 1950s, according to the USDA Agriculture Fact Book, 2001-2002, the latest version. In all, Americans consumed about 7 pounds more red meat, 46 pounds more poultry and 4 pounds more fish and shellfish than in the 1950s. It is these increases in saturated fat that has turned American health bad. We are eating more meat and animal protein than we ever did. Are bodies have not evolved to digest this amount of animal protein. Try reducing your consumption by following meatless Mondays and then increase it so you eventually get to eating meat only once a week. If you have the power to give it up completely go vegetarian or better yet vegan.
