Oh How We’ve Changed: A Century Of Meat Consumption
The New York Times recently ran an interesting infographic illustrating how America’s meat consumption has changed over the last century.
As you can see chicken has been on a steady rise for most of the last 50 years and beef has had a more turbulent rise and fall. I was somewhat surprised to see such a big drop in egg consumption. I also thought there would be more of a spike in seafood in the last 10 years.
I’ve isolated just a small snapshot of the entire infographic here. To see the whole graphic you can visit the New York Times page by clicking here.
How have your meat eating habits changed over the years? Have you found yourself reacting to mainstream reports that eggs or beef are bad for your health?
