The greenies think you should not be eating meat. SO there would be no byproducts in a greenie world. You eat vegan.There are certainly extremists for every belief. While I'm pretty green, I think most Americans should eat less meat, not necessarily none unless that's a personal preference.Here's how much meat the average American consumed, by type, in 2007:_Chicken: 84.9 pounds_Beef: 63.5 pounds_Pork: 48.2 pounds_Turkey: 17.5 pounds_Lamb and Mutton: 1 poundhttp://www.usatoday.com/money/economy/2008-11-14-3913750537_...That's 112 lbs of red meat and 102 lbs of poultry a year. I'd estimate that DH and I each eat more like 25 lbs of red meat and 50 lbs of poultry a year.This is also interesting:http://www.ers.usda.gov/Briefing/DietQuality/Availability.ht...Looks like beef consumption peaked around 1978, chicken consumption has risen to meet beef consumption, and pork consumption has been rising very slowly over the past century.=alstro, for dinner typically eats red meat once a week (more likely pork or lamb than beef), poultry twice a week, fish twice (fin-fish once and shellfish once), and vegetarian twice (usually one vegan and one with some egg or cheese).
