Skip the beef once a week

Why should I do this?

Raising grain-fed beef requires more petroleum products than nearly all other types of meat products. It also encourages intensive cropping to supply the necessary feed which translates into more pesticides, and fertilizers leading to further health issues and the creation of "dead zones."
