The Different World We Created


As we've pointed out, people in the US are eating fewer and fewer animals. Agribusiness has given up trying to spin it as just part of the recession; as Jim Lochner, chief operating officer of Tyson, admits:

"We are operating in a different world than we were a few years ago," Lochner said. "After decades of steady growth, U.S. per capita consumption of protein [sic!] declined 11% from the peak in 2006, a trend that is likely to continue."

Carla Wilson reports: "This guy  talked to Bryan after reading the booklet
 and said he had no idea. He said he knew a cow was a burger
but had never thought about it further."
