Toxic Effects: Everyday Exposures

What do you do to avoid adding toxins in your home environment?

Michael Pollan on Eating Meat - Video -

Did you happen to catch the Oprah show today?

I thought Oprah's show today was very well rounded and needed. Anyone on her staff who wanted to could try a vegan diet for one week. Vegan is a diet that includes no animal products what so ever. None, zip, notta.
There were mixed results. One employee was angry and came to the conclusion she's addicted to fast food and once she worked through her feelings she felt much better.
Another man lost 11 pounds.
Toilet paper use sky rocketed at Harpo productions. People that were going you know what once a week were now going daily. 
To be fair they took a tour of a very popular slaughter house and talked about the meat industry. This particular slaughterhouse/meat company is very respectful with cows and requires respect from their employees. They also go above and beyond to keep the cattle calm and unafraid before the are killed. 
It was well rounded and agreed upon it's all about what feels right for you.
Some people choose to go vegan for not only health reasons but spiritual reasons. 
All in all they agreed too Meatless Mondays at Harpo. Something as simple as one or two meatless dinners a week can have a huge impact on the environment, your health and your budget. 
I think it's a great idea.
I think the bottom line that they touched on is it's ok to eat meat if it feels right to you. We just need to keep cleaning up our food industry. Animals need to be raised with respect and appreciation and as humanely as possible.
As Michael Pollan says "Give them a great life and on their one bad day, make it as quick and painless as possible."
Here's a great short little video: Michael is talking about how our diets changed more in the last 100 years than ever before.
