Subject: hunter-gatherer means a gatherer who can occasionally hunt when food becomes scarce. But if food is available, he doesn't need to practice farming that drastically degrades the environment and consume 16 times more water than agriculture, if organic agriculture can provide more than the least required food.

In the past here (the region where I come from and live) they used to slaughter one sheep only once a year on big occasions or celebration or whatever... but of course such true facts and arguments would not be accepted by wealthy American meat producers and their biased scientists.

P.S: exponential population growth contributes to environmental degradation, but that doesn't mean we should degrade it further by practicing unsustainable unhealthy activities like using chemical pesticides and fertilizers and claiming that it's a need due to the population growth.

I'm afraid I lost you, chadi...What is the farming that drastically degrades the environment, and how does this relate to the length of our intestines??Former Anti-Chadi03:03:37 01/08/03 Wed
I'm not arguing that point. Raising livestock does put demands on the environment. I'm simply contending humans are designed to consume meat, and quite a bit of it. If the planet cannot sustain our protein requirements, we need to look at addressing the population issue.Antichadi II04:06:39 01/08/03 Wed
