Meatless Monday? Yay or Nay?

Do you go meatless monday? It could help the environment. 

Here's why... 

It takes 1,846 gallons of water to produce a pound of beef but just 39 gallons to yield the same amount of vegetables. 

There's also the crap factor... farm-animal waste is funneled into football-field-size lagoons that release toxic gases.

If everyone in the US gave up meat and cheese 1 day/week for a year, the impact on greenhouse gases would be equal to taking 7.6 million cars off the road.
