Healthy FoodIf you answer here, we will submit your answers to Live Earth, which is running this survey.

There's been lots of debate about how best to eat green and healthy.  It seems to be time to discuss eating meat, and various non-meat-eating options as well.  Are some options better than others, if you do decide to eat meat?  And, where can you look for local, organic food? 

Is local always the right answer?  Is it greener to be vegan than vegetarian?  How have you convinced people to eat less meat?  What other answers are you looking for from our green team about what's on your plate? Answers will be posted here and at the Live Earth site, which originated this survey.

I'm rethinking this and would feel remiss not making another comment. I just read something that indicates that vegans have a significantly higher incidence of colorectal cancer than the general population.
Comment by: City Worker (Sep-27-2012)   

Just the other day, I was fortunate enough to see a video found at nutritionfacts,org: Uprooting the Leading Causes of Death. In it, Dr. Greger makes an extremely convincing argument for one to become a vegan. I'm a real omnivore, bordering on carnivore, and consider the possibility of voluntarily giving up my delicious meat and cheese/figuring out how to be anything else rather overwhelming. But even I am convinced that I should reconsider my position. Death is not that insignificant a topic.

About contributor Member: PT (David Alexander) PT (David Alexander)
   Web site:

Member: PT (David Alexander) In 2006 I started building the Web site to raise awareness of environmental issues, but I have been in the software field since 1978, working primarily on healthcare-related and not-for-profit organizations, but also for some general commercial companies. I have also long been a supporter of environmental causes.

I am an enthusiastic Tai Chi Chuan practitioner and teacher. This helps balance my brain after sitting at a screen for hours at a time, and lends some balance to life.

In early 2006 global warming and other environmental and energy challenges, as well as escalating wars in numerous locations, became central to my understanding of issues that our whole planet faces, and I wanted to do something with my skills to spread awareness and understanding of environment and energy issues, as well as discuss better philosophies of living, for greater satisfaction beyond consumerism.
