  • Reflection Question
    Food Reduce Animal Products
    What do you think contributes to people in North America eating more meat than in other places, and what does this say about North American values and ways of living? How do we start shifting a meat-focused food culture?

    People are going to eat meat no matter what. I couldn't begin to answer what contributes to this, however maybe it is ingrained since the dark ages. I'm not that crazy about it but my opinion is just one of many.
