The environmental risks of veganism


The subheading in your article (The 14 guidelines for going vegan, G2, 19 June) says: “The environmental, well being and moral advantages of veganism are past doubt.” This sounds believable, however one should assume fairly extra critically about this topic. I’d be very happy for those who changed “veganism” with “rejecting industrialised meals manufacturing”. However does anybody assume {that a} transfer to plant-based consuming that features, for instance, monoculture (almonds), habitat destruction (palm oil) and meals miles (avocados) is one thing we must always purpose for? There are many good arguments for altering our eating regimen, however thought should be given to the technique of meals manufacturing and distribution. Huge Meals doesn’t care about what’s contained in the burger; it’s solely within the inside wallets and uninquiring minds.
