Now the meat industry and media are in damage control mode. They're busily trying to reassure consumers there is no shortage, especially of frozen meats which have been in storage for awhile and overstocked because restaurants are less busy.

So they're trying to discourage people from hoarding meat like they did toilet paper. So now consumers can rest assured they can eat meat and wipe with toilet paper, instead of eating the toilet paper they spent all their money on and had nothing to buy food.

I checked my freezer and don't think I'm hoarding. It's just an ordinary fridge/freezer. I can only squeeze just so much stuff in there anyway. What I bought should last me a few months since I eat meat about once a day. And it's really, really tasty. Tasty, tasty animals.

Iíve had them a couple of times. Like whole crabs, they are not worth the effort. Much prefer rabbit.

America’s meat shortage is more serious than your missing hamburgers.

The meat supply chain is breaking down, but that’s only part of the story.

They were pretty good. Better than the horse I had in Italy in 2013.

You are what you eat. Your plate is a choice to perpetuate, or alleviate world problems.
Medical costs of meat consumption
In this peer reviewed article: "Results. Direct health care costs attributable to meat consumption are estimated to be $2.8-8.5 billion for hypertension, $9.5 billion for heart disease, $0-16.5 billion for cancer, $14.0-17.1 billion for diabetes, $0.2-2.4 billion for gallbladder disease, $1.9 billion for obesity-related musculoskeletal disorders, and $0.2-5.5 billion for foodborne illness."

This was in '92. Can't imagine what covid-19 has added.

What are your choices adding...?

According to the packaging, itís right there between the pig and the bison. I think. Itís further away, though, so itís hard to tell. Sure looks like a mammoth...

Thatís a moose. Iím a city boy and I can even see that on my phone. Shoulder hump and short tail. My guide for my backcountry backpack trip in Glacier led moose hunting trips in Alaska. He said the ribs are pretty good. We saw 5 during that week. Two young bulls and a cow with twins.

This was in '92. Can't imagine what covid-19 has added.

What are your choices adding...?
Old study, with an abstract that suggests bias to prove preconceived notions rather than to explore actual evidence, wherever it may lead. Even at the time of publication it was regarded with skepticism by the AMA:
Dr. Roy M. Schwarz, group vice president for professional standards of the American Medical Association, said the study did not specify whether factors like age, sex and genetic history of the people covered in the studies had been taken into account. All such factors could affect health.

"I just have a very difficult time believing that they have controlled for all these different factors," Dr. Schwarz said, adding that he could not reach the same conclusions as the authors of the paper on the basis of evidence they had presented.
The sample group indicates a strong bias toward proving preconceived notions. The Adventist organization has a reputation for promoting a biased and scientifically suspect dietary agenda.

"In preparing their analysis, the authors examined studies of large groups of people in the United States whose living habits were comparable except for their meat consumption patterns. Most of the studies involved Seventh-Day Adventists and Mormons."
The 1995 study is also outdated because it predated the inclusion of DNA evidence that suggests some demographics are better suited to others for a carnivorous diet.

I've certainly done better after switching to a diet based more on meats, with less reliance on most vegetables, particularly root vegetables. I use them for flavor, color and variety but no longer consume large quantities of vegetables just for the sake of following outdated dietary recommendations. And I avoid most fruit other than as fuel for bike rides and workouts. Most readily available fruits and some vegetables have been modified over generations to be higher in sugar and in many cases bear little or no resemblance to the original vegetables and fruits from which they were developed.

I'm not a pure carnivore, although a couple of friends have switched to a pure carnivore diet based on recent, unbiased and more rigorously peer reviewed studies.

Yup. Catch those in the Texas surf as well . Have to switch to steel leaders because of those teeth. They are in large schools and we catch several at a time. Cut their tails and bleed them immediately before putting them on ice. Watch those fingers Iíve had a blue cut mine a few times.

Much safer buying them from the fish monger. A long time ago a friend of mine reeled one into a boat. It flapped around on the deck and bit his ankle. They don't call the adults "chompers" for nothing.

Maybe a decade ago I was at the Jersey shore. There was a large group of gulls hitting the surface. The whole thing was moving up the coast. Lifeguards started calling bathers in. I asked why. He said the bluefish were running north at that time of year and what was likely happening was that a school of blues was chasing a school of smaller fish, which the gulls were then cherry picking. When the blues get in a frenzy like that they sometime bite bathers. Once the whole thing has passed the guard lets the bathers go back in.

Yes they are known to bite people. Luckily I was catching blues in a remote area down Padre Island. Extremely aggressive fish and like you said the gulls follow them to get the leftovers. When I’m fishing the surf I look for feeding gulls to find the baitfish schools usually stirred up by feeding gamefish.
