Where's the Beef?

While reading through an article on "Mad cow disease" (great name for a condition) yesterday I came across this data that shows the decline of grams of beef per person from 1974 to 1999, and accompanied rise of consumption of poultry.

Scares surrounding mad cow disease started in the late 80's and intensified in the early 90's, however the rise of poultry consumption could probably also be attributed to other factors such as cost and poultry being perceived as a healthier alternative.
