Meat & Climate Change


Eating meat not only can harm your health, it also takes a toll on the planet. It is well-known that animal agriculture turns lush forests into barren deserts and discharges pollutants into our waterways.

The Environmental Working Group, a DC-based research organization, now adds to the data. The group released a new report tracking the “cradle-to-grave” greenhouse gas emissions associated with meats and other high-protein foods. The study examines the impact of food every step of the way, from the fields and barns to the trash cans and landfills. Among the top greenhouse-gas producing foods are lamb, beef, and cheese.

Researcher Kumar Venkat did the advanced calculations for the study, revealing that buying local meat has little impact on greenhouse gas emissions. Only 1 percent of the emissions from eating domestic beef comes from transportation.

Eating a plant-based diet is among the most effective actions needed to avert climate change.

Activating the World

What if the whole world could get together to make a big difference? That’s exactly what London-based nutritionist Yvonne Bishop-Weston is setting out to do with Plantarian, a new concept in healthy eating, and One World Day, a global awareness day on November 1st.

“Unless we start eating more fruit and vegetables we are doomed to be more obese, more diabetic, more cancerous, have more heart disease and more emotional disorders” says the nutritionist.

“A number of doctors have set out to prove what aspects of the vegetarian and vegan diets provide the health benefits. The essence of health is now presented as a Plantarian Diet. This simple, easy to follow diet that has helped president Clinton to battle his heart disease is founded on eating a rainbow of fresh vegetables and fruit along with a few other basic rules.”
