    Beef experts acknowledge the irony: High-protein diets, such as Atkins and South Beach, are driving consumers to stores where they buy choice beef that, in many cases, is more marbled with fat than the supposedly heart-attack-causing select beef that alarmed federal officials in the 1970s.

    The nation's taste for beef fell off the table in 1977, when a Senate select committee issued dietary recommendations that instructed Americans to eat more chicken and less red meat.

    Almost immediately, to the horror of the $93 billion cattle industry, consumers did as they were told. The year before the recommendation, per capita beef consumption was at an all-time high of nearly 89 pounds a year. Within three years, it slumped to 73 pounds a year. It finally bottomed out in 1993, at 61.2 pounds a year, which represented a 31 percent decline in beef consumption.

    It appears unlikely that Americans will ever again eat as much beef as they did in the 1970s. Although per capita consumption has increased since the mid-1990s, it was just 64.4 pounds last year.

    Do FAST FOOD beef tacos count as BEEF ???

    Web Definition: ¬*¬* taco¬*-¬*(tah-KOH) - Taco in Spanish means a sandwich made with a tortilla. Like a sandwich, it can be made with almost any thing and prepared in many different ways. The taco can be eaten as an entree or snack. They are made with soft corn tortillas or fried corn tortillas folded over.
