If you don't buy the beef, you don't pay the cost. I do, and I pay for it. Move on, it is not YOUR business what I eat.

Since every aspect of beef production is heavily subsidized, a person who does not eat beef pays part of your freight every time you eat the stuff.

BS. Beef earns for farmers $44B (and costs of transportation and retail add as much minimum).  It is many times the amount of ALL agricultural subsidies combined, including corn which goes to fuel production and HFCS production, cotton etc.
