SHOOT: Our digestive tracts aren't geared for much meat anyway. Our diets today are way out of sync in comparison to what we should be eating - which is why the greatest cause of death amongst human beings is heart disease. Because what we eat and how we live really isn't good for us. Not the amounts of meat, nor the amounts of fat or sugar. We should be eating more fruit and vegetables - cooking our food more, and caring about what we eat.
People who pay attention to food are already vaguely uneasy about meat. But as we rev up for grilling season, it's understandable that they'd want to put those fears aside. What would you say to them as we approach Memorial Day?
