I'm not a vegetarian, and to be honest I don't have any immediate plans on becoming one. However, this article on Alternet presents a pretty cohesive argument and some startling statistics about the impact of our meat-consuming habits on the planet. In fact, some of the stats are a bit too incredible to blindly accept without a source citation. Still, when you hear about a Utah pork producer hosting a three-million gallon waste lagoon to manage pig excrement, it makes you question just how healthy "the other white meat" really is. And don't even get me going on the beef statistics.
