The Meat You Eat is Cranking Up the Heat
e nited ations has sent tremors through the livestock indus-try with a new report that states, “e livestock sector emerges asone o the top two or three most signicant contributors to themost serious environmental problems, at every scale rom localto global.” e report shows that livestock production accountsor more greenhouse gases than automobiles. For every calorie o meat consumed, at least ten calories o ossil uels were requiredto produce that meat. nimal agriculture takes up 70% o allagricultural land, and 30% o the total land surace o the planet.oday, 70% o “slash-and-burned” mazon rainorest is usedor pasture land, and eed crops cover much o the remainder.e ultimate ramications o the report suggest that the aver-age merican can do more to reduce global warming emissionsby adjusting their meat eating habits than by switching to driv-ing the most uel ecient car currently on the market. egativeenvironmental impacts can be greatly reduced by reducing (oreliminating) meat consumption and buying locally grown andsustainably produced meats, dairy and animal products.

Vitamin MythExposed 
, by r. rian lement o the ippocratesealth Institute. is week’s installment looks athow the milligram measurement is highly inaccuratein measuring the eectiveness o a specic vitaminsupplement. igh milligram dosages o certain syn-thetically produced vitamin supplements may actu-ally have a negative impact on the body, in contrastto a lower milligram dosage o a vitamin supplementthat is ood-based. is week, readers can also takea beginning look at how high RDA values on a vitamin supple-ment label may not mean much (example: “1000% daily recom-mended dose o Vitamin ”). e RDA is o little value i the body is unable to metabolize most o the main “Vitamin ” ingredient,due to the act that a synthetic version o this “vitamin” is very dierent rom what you would nd in a ruit or vegetable.
