Eat Right

Published in NY Newsday, March 6, 2002:

One way to make a profound impact on the current water shortage is to become a vegetarian ("Waiting it out on Water Rules," Feb. 26).

If you become a vegetarian, you won't have to waste water by rigorously scouring raw meat and chicken; you also won't have to wash down your countertops, utensils and hands, as the Food and Drug Administration recommends, to avoid cross-contamination of meat- borne pathogens, such as salmonella, E-coli and listeria. Also, you'll be healthier as well - a win-win situation for all.
