All living things, except one, survive in a balance that maintains life. We are charged with protecting the environment because we the only species capable of destroying the environment. But, our food choices are deleteriously affecting air, water and soil. Beyond environmental concerns, economically speaking, we spend a vast amount of money on foods that are the main cause of severe illness including heart disease.
Maybe it is time that we step up and doing something about it. Todd Winant is the author of the Earth Voice Food Choice Manual and a leading health/environmental educator. In this presentation he details the many ways we are destroying the environment for our food. From chemical farming to overgrazing of livestock we are destroying the very systems used to sustain life. The solution is right before us, and even under our feet.
