Fair enough in the days of the Savannah, when food choices were few and health/environmental sciences were thousands of years away from being developed.
But with what we know now, can we really justify this dietary habit? When it comes to eating meat, have we got our heads in the sand? Are some things just too hard (and too tasty) to give up?
