What not to eat (part 1)
For much of the ’90s, I tried (and, ultimately, failed) to live as a vegetarian. In recent years, I went through a pescatarian transition period, and now — even though I choose fish or no meat whenever I can — I’ll eat pretty much whatever anyone puts in front of me. The rationale for that is that my ethical obligation to the people closest to me — i.e., anyone who would cook for me — is greater than my ethical obligation to lower species.
But now I wonder. The ecological arguments against meat may be more powerful than the ethical arguments against meat. They’re also arguments wrapped in self-preservation: eat less meat, save your body, save the planet.
I knew I had food issues, but these are issues.
