How You Can Make a Difference
• Ask for a veggie burger at restaurants and avoid fast-food hamburgers
• Veggie Day: make a least one day a week a vegan day.
• Take your own bags to the grocery store; reduce and reuse.
• Never eat veal or duck (foie gras): the two most abused farm animals
• Your body is your Temple. Same for your loved ones. Look at ingredients.
• Eat Locally- support family farms, local foods and organic sources.
• EAT LESS MEAT. More vegetables & fruit equals less deadly disease.
• Choose Organic. Do homework- factory farms are deadly in many ways.
If you do eat meat, eat it occasionally- not exclusively, and choose organic.
So one of the best things you can do to help is to go vegetarian, or almost vegetarian. And if you must eat meat, be aware that a Swedish study in 2003 showed that production of organic beef yields 40% less greenhouse gases and consumes 85% less energy ( and equivalent to a 1h 50m car journey). And it’s better for your body. One hormone injected into beef to promote fast weight gain and growth, diethylstilbestrol (DES), has been implicated in breast cancer and fibroid tumors.
Eat Locally Grown
Food is traveling farther than ever. Once upon a time people ate seasonally—artichokes in the winter, cherries in June. Now you can buy most fruits and vegetables practically year-round. The average American meal contains ingredients produced in at least five other countries. The transportation of food and agricultural products constitutes more than 20% of total commodity transport within the U.S. To help reduce CO2 emissions (released from trucks, airplanes, and cargo ships), it's best to buy food that's in season, organic and grown locally. Go to ams.usda.gov/farmersmarkets to find the farmers' market nearest you.
