      You've written yet another excellent diary, and that chart is probably going to be an eye opener for a lot of us. I see the diary as comparable to grabbing someone by the shoulders and shaking them vigorously.  The bald statement "meat is murder" is more like a kick in the rear, althogh it probably should be amended to "the MEAT industry IS MURDERing you".

      In any case, thank you for pointing out this insane situation. I would not be surprised to see deaths rapidly rise to the millions.
