Hooked on meat?

I agree with little that Mark Bittman writes now that he is op-editing on the NY Times, but he writes well so I read him regularly. Today's column has the provocative title Hooked on Meat and starts off:
Quote:
Once, we had to combine hunting skills and luck to eat meat, which could supply then-rare nutrients in large quantities. This progressed — or at least moved on — to a stage where a family could raise an annual pig and maybe keep a cow and some chickens. Quite suddenly (this development is no more than 50 years old, even in America), we can drive to our nearest burger shop and scarf down a patty — or two! — at will.

Because evolution is a slow process, this revolutionary change has had zero impact on the primal urge that screams, “Listen, dummy, if you can find meat you’d better eat it, because who knows when you’ll eat it again!”
Good reading, even if you disagree

Re: Hooked on meat?

You have to make at least 200K CHF a year to be hooked on meat here.
