The future of the burger

I knew Burger King had started trying out meatless burgers but didn't know McDonalds had jumped on the bandwagon too. This was the most astounded thing in the article though:

Beef-eating crashed along with the U.S. economy starting in 2008, but has picked up fitfully year by year and is back up to the equivalent of 229 burgers a year, or 4.4 burgers a week

Imagine what your body must feel like after eating 4.4 burgers a week. Even just replacing one of them with a vegan or vegetarian alternative has got to be a lot better for you. Or, you know, vary your diet some more.
