I did a fantastic little paper for an Anthropology class back in the day about the meat industry and the environment. I titled it, 'Our We Eating Ourselves to Death?' Catchy right? lol The paper went on to argue that yes, we are, starting with a history of the inception of the beef industry. Anyway, i got most my information from these 2 books: Beyond Beef: The Rise and Fall of the Cattle Culture and Mad Cowboy by Howard Lyman. It was a good paper and it was fun to write something i was so passionate about. I recall the prof liked it too..
