meat in the USA

an interesting article by mark.bittman of the NYTimes regarding meat-eating habits in the US and the effect that meat production has on health, the economy and environment. there is a lot to discuss here; as everything done in the name of 'industry' or 'profit' is not perfect.

Rethinking the Meat-Guzzler - New York Times
Americans are downing close to 200 pounds of meat, poultry and fish per capita per year (dairy and eggs are separate, and hardly insignificant), an increase of 50 pounds per person from 50 years ago. We each consume something like 110 grams of protein a day, about twice the federal government’s recommended allowance; of that, about 75 grams come from animal protein.l
however, as i read these types of articles, i often try to identify the one with the greatest number of logical fallacies. how many can you find?
