Where's the Beef?!

From another post from Cassie at GreenOptions.com: apparently it takes over 5200 gallons of water to bring 1 pound of beef to market! This takes into consideration the water that cattle drink plus the wate used to grow the corn they eat.

Here are the stats for some of your other favorite eats:
  • Potatoes: 24 gallons
  • Apples: 49 gallons
  • Chicken: 815 gallons
  • Pork: 1,630 gallons
  • Beef: 5,214 gallons
