True Cost of Meat

Would you go into a fast food restaurant to order a hamburger if you knew it would cost you over $50? Would you order steak in a fancy restaurant if you knew it was going to cost you over $200? In truth that’s already what you are paying. When is the price you pay not the price you pay? When the government helps to foot the bill.

~ Fatoumata Issifi Hidjo , America’s first head of the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) The government massively subsidises the water and corn needed to raise beef.
