Diet and nutrition / Paleo and the Environment
« on: August 23, 2016, 07:37:56 PM »
Hi, I've read http://paleoleap.com/paleo-meat-environment/ and http://robbwolf.com/2012/05/17/paleo-diet-sustainability-economic-growth/ which say that paleo is better for the environment. For instance, they discuss how letting livestock graze on the land itself, rather than feed them corn, is better for the soil. However, according to other sites like http://www.earthisland.org/journal/index.php/elist/eListRead/can_seven_billion_humans_go_paleo/, while the paleo diet does help the environment in lots of ways, it has a lot of cons as well. It mentions that we have two and a half times the fishing fleet that the oceans can sustain. Digging into the top results for whether grass-fed beef is better than other beef, https://www.google.com/search?q=paleo+and+the+environemnt&oq=paleo+and+the+environemnt&aqs=chrome..69i57j0l2.3098j0j4&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8#safe=active&q=grass+fed+beef+environmental+impact (especially the slate article at the top), it seems like more research needs to be done, but that grass-fed is not necessarily better and possibly much worse. Perhaps there still need to be more studies done.

What are your guys thoughts? How can we eat lots of delicious meat and still do our part for the environment?
