More than six out of 10 respondents to The Evening Sun's "It's Your Call" say they have cut down on their consumption of beef, pork and lamb in the past five years and are eating more fish and chicken.
On the questions about fish and chicken, 114 of 178 callers (64 percent) said they have increased the number of meals with chicken and fish entrees. Ten percent (20 callers) said consumption of those foods had decreased, while 44 callers (25 percent) said they had not changed their eating habits in that regard.
Questions about beef, pork and lamb drew 188 callers, and 117 (62 percent) said they had cut down on those meat entrees. There was no change reported from 51 callers (27 percent), while almost 11 percent (20 callers) reported eating more red meat.
"It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically, as would be done in a scientific public opinion poll.
