Meat is good for you. All food is good for you in the right proportions unless you suffer from allergies. The meat that I eat does not come from the amazon rainforest it is produced in the UK. The UK produces most of its own meat including welsh lamb. Where I live in Wales there are more sheep than people. Some beef is imported from Argentina and some lamb is imported from New Zealand but I don’t see any meat from Brazil. My consumption of meat therefore has no affect on the amazon rainforest . Also in the UK we have very good animal welfare when it comes to raising livestock. Some people can be educated beyond their intelligence. What we need is facts not junk science and politics. Facts not opinions. There is a difference.
Also why is it ok for Europe and the USA to deforest land for cultivation but not for Brazil? Once upon a Tim most of Europe and the North America’s were covered in forest. There was a lot of political bias in your message and it was a very one sided argument, but if you chose to be vegan, good for you, but don’t assume you are better than those who chose to eat meat.

It’s all about making money. The company that is sponsoring is producing a lot of packaging that has an affect on the environment. It’s better to prepare food from scratch using raw ingredients. Convenience food is full of additives including high levels of salt sugar and fat and a lot of plastic waste. Most of the vitamins and mineral will have degraded by the time it reaches your dinner plate. Food manufacturer are only interested in profit that’s why you can never beat homemade food. I would much prefer a ribeye steak than something that’s been hanging around a factory floor for days before it is finally packaged for the supermarket.

What kind of your car do you drive Mr Grima? What size engine does it have? What about people who are diabetic and rely on pig insulin to stay alive?
