“Why on earth would a barbecue guy nicknamed Meathead decide to become Potatohead for a 30 days? Why would I violate my well publicized motto “No rules in the bedroom or dining room”?
In June, in order to better understand the issues surrounding our dietary choices, I wrote an article on Huffington Post called Meat or No Meat. It attempted to explain the pros and cons of eating meat and divided the arguments into six categories. I continue to edit it based on reader comments.
There have been more than 8,000 passionate comments from everyone from cattle ranchers to PETA members. People feel religiously about this subject. I invite you to go there, read it, and join the debate.
Most of the arguments against meat do not impress me. But two give me pause every time I reach for my tongs:
- The way most of our beef, pork, fowl, and fish are grown nowadays, in huge factory farms, can be inhumane.
- These methods may be harmful to humans.”
