More to Chew On: A Vegetarian Diet?

  • By The Chew Crew
Americans love meat.  In fact, they love it so much that the average American eats 62 pounds of it a year according to the USDA and FDA.  That is the weight of three car tires.
 
This indulgence might not last.  By 2050 scientists say we may all be vegetarians! 

A recent European report says that the entire world will have to completely switch to a vegetarian diet by 2050 because of the growing population.  The worry is that there won’t be enough water available on current croplands to produce food for the expected 9 billion people.
 
Could you live out the rest of your days on a vegetarian diet?
