Veganism and a Sustainable Lifestyle - Albert Schweitzer, French philosopher, physician, and musician, said “until he extends the circle of his compassion to all living things, man will not himself find peace.” This is a tacit statement, humanity will not be able to “find peace” until it adopts a more sustainable lifestyle, and it has been proven time and time again, that veganism is that lifestyle. Becoming vegan is a powerful experience, and one feels rejuvenated, both morally and physically, after acclimating to the diet, and, although the opposition claims that veganism is either detrimental or useless, the diet is, in fact, beneficial to the environment, to animals, and the individuals who follow the lifestyle....   [tags: Nutrition ]

Feeding and Fishing: the Issue Facing the U.S. and the Global Community - Feeding and Fishing: the Issue Facing the U.S. and the Global Community “Give a man a fish, feed him for a day; teach a man to fish, feed him for life.” When translated into agricultural terms, this Chinese proverb confronts the question facing the United States and the global community today. The United States has been providing food for the rest of the world for years. While this illustration of care is commendable, it also has a downside. In the future, and debatably in the present, it is not possible for the United States to continue providing for other countries....   [tags: Agriculture Farming Environment Essays Papers]

Men need equality - Suzanne Fields in her essay ‘Parental Leave is a Myth-take’ exemplifies the traditional view that women should be the one’s staying to raise the children. She doesn’t support the Parental Leave Bill that would allow fathers the right to 12 weeks of unpaid leave from work, to care for a newborn child. I will dispute her position that fathers have the ability to nurture their babies and that passing the Parental Leave Bill will not affect those women who choose to stay home with their children. Fields opposes the granting of 12 weeks of unpaid leave for fathers after the birth of their newborns (Title,1)....   [tags: Suzanne Fields, Parental Leave] 751 words

Grass-fed vs. Grain-fed Beef - In today's society, organic food is a giant new thing in which food is produced without any chemicals. In other words, the product must be 100 percent natural.
