Eat More Bacon

Pork is now the most widely produced meat in the world!  The most recent numbers say that of all 250 million tons of meat produced worldwide, 39% is pork, 32% is poultry, 25% is beef, and 5% is mutton or lamb.  As recently as the 1960’s, beef had a 42% world market share, and poultry was only 12%.  Quite a change in 60 years.
