BS. There is a problem with cows gases simply because of the amount of drugs pumped into them. Let them live naturally then there is no problem. The problem is all the chemicals that the food companies are putting inYou must stop eating all this flesh, it is a major contributor to the greenhouse gas Methane and if cows were capable of smoking then I dare say there would have been a few exploding cows around.
I do wonder sometimes if we eat anything actually that is truly natural.BS. There is a problem with cows gases simply because of the amount of drugs pumped into them. Let them live naturally then there is no problem. The problem is all the chemicals that the food companies are putting in
your ‘food’ , it’s not food. It’s all processed chemicals and what do you think the carbon footprint is of the factories. Same as wind turbines, box ticking. Over 1 tonne of co2 to produce 1 tonne of steel. How many tonnes in the tower of a wind turbine? All BS. Only half the narrative that should be spoken.
I think you'd find the world's grain to have a caloric surplus in terms of human consumption - by a long shot. About half of the corn crop in the US is converted to ethanol.The problem with livestock isn’t their emissions more the fact that 40% of the worlds grain is used to feed them, but then again why feed the starving in the third world countries when we can feed live stock & make the populations of the “1st“ world countries even more obese
That's funny, as my p-doc says some of the most screwed up labs that he sees are from vegetarians - vegans, especially.You can dress it up however you like DW but I seem to know a lot of vegetarians (not that I am one) but I can’t think of one that is fat let alone obese, a quick google suggests this also is the case in studies of carnivores & vegetarians
It's interesting you mention drinkers - I take a nip of brandy before bed, but not enough to affect sleep. I don't know any actual alcoholics but know some serious social drinkers (who would probably classify as alcoholics, I guess, just not the drunk 24/7 type) - they're all fit, very social and exercise.most of the ones I know drink like fish so definitely don’t fall into the health conscious
You don't think another group will be upset at the loss of flora (esp) and fauna that lives in grassland environments?Perhaps we could replant them with trees, healthier for the environment, proven to help rainfall be absorbed into the soil at a far greater rate than pasture so reducing flooding & would give a plentiful supply of timber for future generations of woodworkers. Win win
I’ve no doubt, whenever there’s change there’s upset, on the other hand it’s estimated we are down from 75% coverage of the uk with forest to under 12% so we’d be rebalancing rather than changing, giving back habitat that has been lost to farming & so encouraging the re-growth of already lost native flora & fauna.You don't think another group will be upset at the loss of flora (esp) and fauna that lives in grassland environments?
I believe there has been a realisation that decades of health messaging that fat, esp saturated fat is the primary cause of health issues and weight gain.....is a load of hogwash.just the sugar, without regard to the refined carbs:
There's more in obesity there in terms of annual weight gain all else neutral than is actually here in obesity. That is, if the sugar consumption is up 30 pounds a year over a prior date, then that's equivalent to 4/9ths of the amount in body weight, or 13 1/3rd pounds per year.
Generally speaking 'yes' but, and there is always a 'but', there will be a good proportion of such land that is not suitable for cereal or other arable production; a point sometimes forgotten. And then again, hill land in e.g. Wales is not suitable for anything other than sheep. I guess you could always grow a hay/silage crop to feed factory farmed livestock but that would upset many people. Or maybe cover the area with solar panels .. oh hang on, I think that is being done somewhere with sheep grazing underneath the panels.As for ending meat production - can someone help me understand what we do with grass meadows etc when there are no livestock to graze. Do we plough them up for cereal crops?
