Potential Effects of the Next 100 Billion Hamburgers Sold by McDonald's

Great little paper on the Potential Effects of the Next 100 Billion Hamburgers Sold by McDonald's comparing the impact of McDonald's selling 100 billion veggie burgers rather than another 100 billion meat burgers.

Interesting stuff.

The article touches on the nutrition issues...a look at the envioronmental/ecological would be fascinating as well...

From my friend Gabriel who sent me the article:

What was most interesting to me, besides the scary thought that 96 percent of americans eat at McDonalds each year - 96 percent! - is that the McVeggie burgers have twice as much protein as the beef bugers. People are always asking me how a vegetarian can get enough protein, but protein is the easiest thing to get in any diet, provided that you are not starving. Too bad the fast-food veggie burgers are nowhere near as good as the ones you get at the grocery store.

(Thanks for the heads-up, Gabriel!)
