Should Americans banish the burger?

Yes, says a Cornell professor quoted in this CNN recount of a recent "Larry King Live" episode

Not all the guests on the show agreed, however.  Watch the Larry King Live video here.

An excerpt from the article:
Dr. Colin Campbell of Cornell University advocates a meat-free diet.Campbell said he grew up on a dairy farm and for a long time held to the belief that animal protein was an essential part of a healthy diet. He said the results of years of research changed his mind. The conclusion of his studies: "The closer we get to consuming a whole foods, plant-based diet, the healthier we're going to be on all accounts."

(Note: Watch for an upcoming Ithaca's Food Web post about food safety and local meat.)
