Here's the obligatory, "Not sure if this is the right place to post this or not," disclaimer....

At any rate, I'm glad to see such a story come through in the main-stream media.

I was struck by the statement, it requires the equivalent of burning 7-pounds of coal to make a quarter pounder with cheese.

I'd find this more interesting if they included more data about the diets and lifestyle of the people who did and didn't eat those things.

This is being discussed on a general, non-veg forum I'm a member of. I haven't looked at it because I know there will be some idiots with their "I'd rather die early than give up nice juicy steak" comments, but this is getting attention so woo.

I think they were talking about this same study on CNN earlier. I was sort of excited....until I heard the lady on tv say "You don't have to go vegetarian, but trading out meat for other foods like chicken, fish, or nuts is a step in the right direction."

I get that they're different from beef, but to imply that they aren't meat? Maybe chicken and fish will end up being reclassified as vegetables, just like pizza.
