Cut Back on Meat and Poultry to Help Protect the Environment

November 16 [Wed], 2011, 16:17
With the massive BP Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico and Hurricane Katrina in the Gulf region, everyone is worrying about habitat damage these days. It's great that everyone is becoming much more conscious about the world they live in and how their habits affect it, but it's unfortunate that it took two disastrous events such as those to help bring the awareness about. Thankfully, everyone is starting to think about how they can live healthier lives for themselves while also helping maintain the environment so the children of the world can live on a healthier Earth in the future. As people begin to recognize their unhealthy habits and change them, animals also benefit from being able to live in undamaged habitats.

Recently, films such as Food Inc. and King Corn have made Americans much more aware of how their meat eating habits affect the rest of the planet. From all of the excess corn that is grown, to the petroleum required to harvest that corn, to the pesticides being sprayed all over the fields, to the inhumane and dirty factory-farms that animals are grown on, it's clear that America needs to cut it's dependence on beef, pork and chicken as major sources of protein. That's not to say that Americans shouldn't eat those meats altogether, but if every individual would cut back greatly, it would help reduce the habitat damage that factory farming is causing.


When Americans start to cut back on their meat and poultry intake, they'll still be able to find good sources of protein elsewhere. Thankfully, fish can be one of the healthiest proteins to eat, both for the eater and for the environment. As long as fisheries are following federal regulations that guard against habitat damage, consumers can eat fresh fish packed with antioxidants and nutrients without feeling guilty. Although the current disaster in the Gulf has greatly affected sea life in the area, Americans can still enjoy fish from other areas of the country where the fish populations are healthy, such as Alaska. If you're worried about all the habitat damage that your meat-eating ways may be contributing to, start to replace some of the meat in your diet with seafood.
