In my posts about water and the difference in amount required for plant/animal food, I have erred on the conservative side, calling the difference only "a fraction," or a difference of "ten to a hundred times" when I know it's actually very solidly 100 times. That said, I'm almost positive this is a typo. If not, somebody's gotta whole lotta splainin to do. In a Japanese study of agricultural water needs, "Beef required 100,000 times more liquid than grains, pork 11,000 times and chicken 4,900 times." Lucy?
