Some links that I followed led me to this informative chart showing how much water is used for various household activities and food production.  I knew already about some of them, but the one about beef was a real surprise.  It takes 1500 gallons of water to produce one pound of beef.  They must be figuring all the water that goes into the production of corn, which is pretty much all that “beef” gets to consume, other than antibiotics.   Although maybe they wash down all those antibiotic pills with glasses of water.
