The positive effect of vegetarian diets on the environment is pretty well documented at this point, but here's another new study detailing the high environmental costs of meat: It concludes that because of increases in population and per capita consumption we will have to cut back on meat between 19-42% by 2050 just to keep environmental damage at current levels.
Reuters quotes the report authors, from Dalhousie University, as saying that "reining in growth in this sector should be prioritized."
Furthermore, there's "a profound disconnect between the anticipated scale of potential environmental impacts associated with projected livestock production levels and even the most optimistic mitigation strategies."
Published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the report Forecasting potential global environmental costs of livestock production 2000-2050 notes, "by 2050, the livestock sector alone may either occupy the majority of, or significantly overshoot, recently published estimates of humanity's "safe operating space"" when it comes to climate change, reactive nitrogen mobilization, and appropriation of plant biomass.
In really simple terms: More meat means more greenhouse gas emissions, more nitrogen runoff and pollution, and more land needed for grazing or to grow food for animals which humans will eat.
While the report does say that efficiency improvements in agriculture and livestock raising can help, "Across the board reductions in per capita consumption of livestock products should be a priority."
A close to home example in increases in meat consumption: Between 1970 and now per capita meat consumption in the United States has increased by 17 pounds per year. Similar increases have been seen in many European countries, and in some newly-industrialized countries the trend is solidly towards more meat-eating as well.
As for the climate change impact of cutting back on meat eating, a study released nearly 18 months ago calculated that the costs of climate change mitigation could be reduced by up to 70% if more people either adopted full vegetarian diets or (at minimum) reduced meat consumption to mid-20th century levels.The positive effect of vegetarian diets on the environment is pretty well documented... more

(NaturalNews) It's that time of year again, when the FDA gathers its experts to decide what new horror to unleash into the food supply. This year it's genetically modified salmon, a "frankenfish" pumped up with extra growth hormone genes that make it rapidly grow into a kind of super-Schwarzenegger creature that's triple the size of a regular salmon.
And you're supposed to eat this, by the way. In fact, the FDA will almost certainly allow this to be sold without any warning labels, so now when you buy salmon at the store, you'll have no way to tell whether it's normal salmon or frankenfish GM salmon.
This is just the latest form of "food quackery" to receive the FDA's endorsement. Well, technically the FDA hasn't officially decided to approve it yet, but FDA officials have already announced -- ahead of the public meeting -- that they believe GM salmon is safe. It's a good bet they intend to allow it to enter the food supply.
Genetically modified salmon is "is as safe as food from conventional Atlantic salmon," according to an FDA statement on its website. "There is a reasonable certainty of no harm from consumption of food from this animal."
But even if that's true, that's not the only worry here: The other major concern is about the environmental impact of GM salmon escaping to the wild (or their eggs escaping) and genetically polluting the world's salmon stocks. Now, sure, the company creating these frankenfish promises that will never happen. They insist on it. But gee, have you ever heard of industrial accidents? That's where things go wrong that everybody promised would never go wrong. Bhopal, India comes to mind. Or Chernobyl.
There are seemingly countless cases where companies that promised nothing would go wrong end up apologizing when things went terribly wrong. How can we be sure GM salmon won't one day turn into another large-scale disaster?
One way would be to conduct safety testing before pursuing full-scale production. But that isn't being done. To my knowledge, there are no rigorous environmental or human health safety tests being conducted on GM salmon whatsoever.
So, in effect, we are the experiment. The FDA, if it approves GM salmon, will be launching a brand new game called "let's play genetic roulette with the whole world and see what happens."
It's a stupid way to proceed with something as potentially dangerous as genetic pollution because if it escapes into the wild, it is irreversible. You can't take it back.

Lizzie Velasquez weighs only 56 pounds, has almost zero percent body and consumes up to 8,000 calories a day, but she can hardly gain a pound!
Doctors say the 21-year-old student suffers from a bizarre condition that prevents her from gaining weight. She needs to consume at least 60 meals a day to maintain her health.
“I eat every 15-20 minutes to keep my energy levels up,” she told reporters. “I eat small portions of crisps, sweets, chocolate, pizza, chicken, cake, doughnuts, ice cream, noodles and pop tarts all day long, so I get pretty upset when people accuse me of being anorexic.”
Lizzie’s condition baffled doctors since her birth at four weeks premature and weighed only 2lbs 10 oz. “They told us she would never be able to walk, talk or have a normal life,” her mother recalls. “We had to buy dolls’ clothes from the toy store because baby clothes were too big.”
A medical team at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas believe Lizzie suffers from a form of Neonatal Progeroid Syndrome (NPS) which causes rapid aging, fat loss and tissue degeneration.
She’s suffered several health woes in her 21 years, including going blind in one eye, a ruptured appendix and severe anemia. Doctors are unsure how long she’ll live.

White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel is fond of saying, “You don’t ever want a crisis to go to waste; it’s an opportunity to do important things that you would otherwise avoid.” Well, the Obama Administration certainly has not let the British Petroleum (BP) Deepwater Horizon oil rig crisis go to waste, using it as a smokescreen to silently assault and further diminish American citizens’ personal freedom.
While the nation has its eyes and ears focused on the blame game ping-pong match between President Obama and BP top brass, President Obama on Thursday, June 10, quietly announced a new Executive Order establishing the “National Prevention, Health Promotion, and Public Health Council.”
Claiming the “authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America,” President Obama has truly gone off the deep end this time in his most atrocious attempt to date to control every aspect of Americans’ lives.
According to Sec. 5. of the Executive Order that details the President’s “National Prevention and Health Promotion Strategy,” the Council will be charged with carrying out “lifestyle behavior modification” among American citizens that do not exhibit “healthy behavior.”
The President’s desired lifestyle behavior modifications focus on:
* smoking cessation;
* proper nutrition;
* appropriate exercise;
* mental health;
* behavioral health;
* sedentary behavior;
* substance-use disorder; and
* domestic violence screenings.
Making matters even worse, if that is even possible at this point, President Obama will create an “Advisory Group” composed of experts hand-picked from the public health field and various other areas of expertise “outside the Federal Government.”
Let’s consider who the President has sought advice and mentoring from in the past:
* Rev. Jeremiah Wright, who the Anti-Defamation League calls a “Messenger of Intolerance,” and
* Bill Ayers, leader of the 1960′s domestic terrorist group ”Weatherman” that was “responsible for 30 bombings aimed at destroying the defense and security infrastructures of the U.S.”
Now, President Obama is going to seek medical advisors who will be charged with modifying lifestyles and behaviors of those citizens he deems unhealthy? “Paging Dr. Kevorkian! You’re wanted in the White House STAT by President Obama!”
Whether you are a child, a parent, a worker, or retired, the President’s approximately 25-member “Advisory Group” will soon be present in every aspect of Americans’ lives, as the Executive Order prescribes. Specifically, our new so-called lifestyle behavior modification advisors will be actively carrying out the President’s orders in:
* worksite health promotion;
* community services, including community health centers;
* preventive medicine;
* health coaching;
* public health education;
* geriatrics; and
* rehabilitation medicine.
President Obama’s sweeping plan to enforce “lifestyle behavior modification” is chock full of open-ended target areas, especially when it comes to issues of “mental” and “behavioral” health, “proper nutrition,” “sedentary behavior,” and “appropriate exercise.” The President’s Executive Order is a blatant and forceful attempt to adjust the way Americans young and old think, behave, eat, drink and whatever else free will used to entitle our nation’s citizens to enjoy as prescribed by the Founding Fathers.
If you are feeling stressed-out, sad, confused, hungry, thirsty, bored, or tired, do you honestly trust President Obama and his “Advisory Group” to act in your best interests?White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel is fond of saying, “You don’t ever... more
