Interesting post Marxtacy. In my observation, the trend to eating less meat seems to be growing. Granted there are still millions of people who eat meat a great deal and use it as their primary protien source, but I've also noticed that there are gradual changes. My observations naturally come from my contact with friends and family and business associates so it's hardly a decent cross-section, however, I've noticed dietary changes in myself, which is what I find most suprising (ince it's not something that I was conciously trying to do).

I'm not a vegetarian, but many of my friends are (which is partly why I read this board), but with my own health concerns, budget (meat is expensive!), and the fact that many of my friends eat strictly vegan/vegetarian diets, I've noticed that my diet is slowly changing. I likely will always eat some meat (I honestly enjoy it), but I've realized over the last 6-8 months that most of my protien comes from dairy these days and that my red meat consumption is down to roughly once/week. This may not sound like much, but believe me, these are major changes in my diet. The part I find so suprising (or maybe enlightening is a better word?) is that I didn't plan for the changes, nor did I even notice them at first.

After having a conversation with a few close friends (who aren't vegetarian), they've said that the same thing has been happening with them. People (at least in my world) just seem to be eating less and less meat, drifting towards fish and poultry (rather than red meat), or eating more and more soy derivatives.
