  • Reflection Question
    Food Choose Organic Ingredients
    It is often said that “you can’t feed the world with just organic food.” What is your response to that statement?

    Perri Druen 4/02/2020 9:53 AM
    It is true that it would take a lot to convert how we grow food in this world, but if we decide to do it, we will find a way (or many ways--including using yards for food production).  Cuba is a good example--after they were shut off from the world, they began growing their own food.  
  • Reflection Question
    Food Reduce Animal Products
    Why do people in richer countries eat more meat than people in other places? How does eating more meat affect our planet and other people?

    Perri Druen 4/02/2020 9:51 AM
    Meat can be seen as a status marker, so that when individual and countries have more income, they buy more meat--to the detriment of their health and the environment.  Animal agriculture is one of the biggest polluters and contributors to greenhouse gas emissions (cow farts = methane).
  • Reflection Question
    Food Whole Foods Diet
    Michael Pollan states that “it is better to pay the grocer (our edit: or the farmer!) than the doctor.” What are your thoughts on this idea?

    Perri Druen 4/02/2020 9:42 AM
    I benefit by motivating myself to eat whole foods by considering both the health and the environmental consequences.  I am already feeling better when I wake in the morning.
