In cultures around the world, sitting down for dinner—sometimes en masse—is a staple for dietary practice, playing a significant role in the community and interpersonal relationships. Often, these meals include some form of meat, specifically beef and pork.
In fact, we as Americans average consume about 270 pounds of meat per person, every year—more than basically every country on Earth.

Fletcher had surely eaten hamburgers before, and food poisoning wasn’t this severe and that quick.
The culprit was a lone star tick.
