This hour long talk and debate on the role of livestock in delivering a healthy planet and population is very interesting a brings a number of points which we have debated elsewhere into the question. The role of cattle in sequestering or emitting carbon is discussed as is the optimum human diet: whether or not it is meat based or carbohydrate based.

Lights blue touch paper and retires to watch fireworks!! Very Happy Shocked

Re: Canada’s Food Guide Consultation

From: Group of concerned Canadian Physicians and Allied Health Care providers

For the past 35+ years, Canadians have been urged to follow the Canadian Dietary Guidelines. During this time, there has been a sharp increase in nutrition-related diseases, particularly obesity and diabetes.

We are especially concerned with the dramatic increase in the rates of childhood obesity and diabetes. In 1980, 15% of Canadian school-aged children were overweight or obese. Remarkably, this number more than doubled to 31% in 2011; 12% of children met the criteria for obesity in the same reporting period. This has resulted in a population with a high burden of disease, causing both individual suffering, and resulting in health care systems which are approaching their financial breaking points. The guidelines have not been based on the best and most current science, and significant change is needed.

From the Report of the Standing Senate Committee on Social Affairs on Obesity in Canada, “Canada’s dated food guide is no longer effective in providing nutritional guidance to Canadians. Fruit juice, for instance, is presented as a healthy item when it is little more than a soft drink without the bubbles”

They have put together a list of things that they believe should happen


At last there is some hope that people might might get the message that a carbohydrate based diet is good for the planet. It will probably eventually cause A LOT of deaths.

The nutritionist taking part in the debate after the talk came down heavily on the side of meat and vegetables being the only safe diet and carbs being extremely problematic. She even said that an 8oz grass fed steak was more healthy than a slug of olive oil.

She had also found that there was no evidence to prove that red meat was bad for a person. All the research that she had looked at referred to processed meat but had been attributed to red meat as well.
