Primitive Christianity Revived, Again
The Food Revolution has a section on the environmental impact.
The environmental impact is huge - one meat-free day a week has a larger impact than eating locally grown food!
Yesterday a Facebook friend shared this with me, and it addresses many questions about veganism/vegetarianism. I remembered this discussion and thought I'd share. :)
Huge question and deserves a huge answer. I only have time for a short answer now. 30 years ago I was a meat eater and was very sick. I changed my diet and became very well. I became a vegan, raw foodist. Now I am never sick, never feel any aches or pains and not much fatigue either. To live a vegan life is wonderful and healthful. To live a raw vegan life is nothing short of amazing and a blessing. No animal ever has to feel fear or suffer pain so that I may eat a meal.
I eat plants, vegetables, grasses, leaves, fruits, nuts and seeds in their natural raw state. I would never go back .
Phil, please read: Conscious Eating by Dr. Gabriel Cousens. This will provide you with information ye seek.
Thich Nhat Hanh's Blue Cliff letter sets the matter out well (you have to read a bit before you get to the part about a plant-based diet, but it is the main thrust of the letter).
