    Actually, Meatless Monday was a concept started during WWII. The US government Popularized the idea of Meatless Monday also Wheat-less Wednesday, I do not know if other Allies followed the same or similar strategies, but everyone had rationing. According to the UK's Statistics, the 6 years they were in WWII (1939-1945 for them) saw an UPTURN in peoples health Physical AND Mental, and remember they had the Blitz. Their scientists believe that it was because of some food items getting rationed, like meat, and people gardening both on their own property and collectively. As for the Mental part (suicides were notably reduced during the War years...the current thought is that they had a collective enemy that they collectively fought against. BYW I know that Early and Mooch are not Snoopy (though I think they have corresponded) Sometime somewhere in the comic can one of your characters, may Mooch's Guardians since they are older, mention this. We did it before and we can do it again. Hurrah for Meatless Monday. In theory if would cut meat consumption about by 1/7th. And that's a start.
