Meat and environment, is that possible?

No, if meat is responsible for the current pollution, it does not mean that we should stop eating meat.

There will always be meat (old hens, cows, etc.) because without it, we would have to produce much more fruit and vegetables to provide the protein we need.
On the other hand, it is possible to eat less meat and only meat that is produced in a much more environmentally friendly production system. Cattle, in particular, can find grass in marginal pastures (roadsides, embankments, mountains, waste, etc.) without having to gain land on agricultural and forest land (corn, wheat, etc.).
Livestock is not the result of natural selection but of human selection. Species are selected for particular conditions (disease resistance for example) but they can also be selected according to environmental criteria (a cow that metabolizes grass better and produces less CO2). 28% of animal pollution is related to the control of diseases due to their concentration.

There is a huge margin for reducing pollution (CO2 and methane) by changing production methods (breeding and animal selection). “For example, in Japan, 52% of waste from the food industry is now used as livestock feed, thanks to adequate policies and a certification system” (FAO).

Livestock and landscapes – FAO:

CETA is a democratic crime because it allows Canada to sell products in Europe that do not respect the environment, workers and consumers. This is unfair to European workers who are bound by standards. It is up to Europe and North America to adapt and adopt a more environmentally friendly industry because, in addition, they alone account for half of the world’s pollution.

Even if supermarkets are beginning to phase-out, the G20 economy does not seem to be suffering. Hypermarkets may even have been detrimental to growth: 

G20 GDP Growth – Fourth quarter of 2018, Stable GDP growth in G20 area OECD – OECD:

Hypermarkets and shopping malls are now doubting their survival:

Will ShoppingMalls Survive the Decade? – Edgy:

They blackmail us for jobs and cry wolf for growth when they are the first to destroy it. Their economic model, their consumption pattern, is being challenged by the lack of public support. It is not sectoral and this whole mass consumption pattern with globalized distribution is shattering.

Short circuits have honored their promises of greater profitability, innovation and environmental protection. Short circuits are much more favourable to economic growth:

– ASE – Pourquoi développer les circuits courts? : Watch this video:

And with regard to innovation, the short circuit allows all actors to better communicate, discuss and find local solutions for the benefit of producers, retailers and consumers. Innovation is about discussing local solutions together instead of relying on global transport.

– Value chain development explained:

Environment is linked to economy. In the UN 2019 global assessment report ( it is said that to “better understand the main causes of damage to biodiversity, a pattern that emerges is one of global interconnectivity – with resource extraction and production often occurring in one part of the world to satisfy the needs of distant consumers in other regions.”

The Report is dubbed “1,000,000 species threatened with extinction. ‘Transformative changes’ needed to restore and protect nature. Opposition from vested interests can be overcome for public good.”

It presents an illustrative list of possible actions to achieve sustainability. It promotes “approaches that empower consumers and producers through market transparency, improved distribution and localization (that revitalizes local economies), reformed supply chains and reduced food waste.” A “full and effective participation of Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities in governance” is necessary. “We have already seen the first stirrings of actions and initiatives for transformative change, such as innovative policies by many countries, local authorities and businesses, but especially by young people worldwide.”

Même si les grandes surfaces commencent à disparaissent, l’économie du G20 n’a pas l’air d’en souffrir. Il se peut même que les hypermarchés étaient néfastes à la croissance:

G20 GDP Growth – Fourth quarter of 2018, Stable GDP growth in G20 area OECD – OECD:

Les hypermarchés et les shopping malls  doutent aujourd’hui de leur survie:

Will ShoppingMalls Survive the Decade? – Edgy:

Ils nous font du chantage à l’emploi et crient au loup pour la croissance alors qu’ils en sont les premiers destructeurs. Leur modèle économique, leur mode de consommation est remis en cause par le manque d’adhésion de la population. Ce n’est pas sectoriel et tout ce mode de consommation de masse avec une distribution mondialisée est en train de voler en éclats.

Les circuits courts ont honoré leurs promesses d’une meilleure rentabilité, d’innovation et d’une meilleure protection de l’environnement. Les circuits courts sont beaucoup plus favorables à la croissance économique :

– ASE – Pourquoi développer les circuits courts? :

 Regardez cette vidéo:

Et concernant l’innovation, le circuit court permet à tous les acteurs de mieux communiquer, de discuter et de trouver des solutions locales au bénéfice des producteurs, des intermédiaires et des consommateurs. L’innovation consiste à discuter tous ensemble des solutions locales au lieu de s’appuyer sur le transport mondial.

– Value chain development explained: 

L’environnement est lié à l’économie. Dans le rapport d’évaluation mondiale ONU 2019 (, il est dit que pour “ mieux comprendre les principales causes des dommages à la biodiversité, un schéma qui se dessine est celui de l’interconnectivité mondiale – l’extraction et la production des ressources ayant souvent lieu dans une partie du monde pour satisfaire les besoins des consommateurs éloignés dans les autres régions ”.

Le Rapport est sous-titré “ 1 000 000 000 d’espèces menacées d’extinction ”. Des “ changements transformateurs ” sont nécessaires pour restaurer et protéger la nature. L’opposition d’intérêts particuliers peut être surmontée pour le bien public.“

Il présente une liste illustrative d’actions possibles pour atteindre la durabilité. Il promeut “des approches qui responsabilisent les consommateurs et les producteurs par la transparence du marché, l’amélioration de la distribution et de la localisation (qui revitalise les économies locales), la réforme des chaînes d’approvisionnement et la réduction du gaspillage alimentaire”. Une “ participation pleine et effective des peuples autochtones et des communautés locales à la gouvernance ” est nécessaire. “Nous avons déjà vu les premières manifestations d’actions et d’initiatives en faveur d’un changement transformateur, telles que des politiques innovantes de la part de nombreux pays, autorités locales et entreprises, mais surtout des jeunes du monde entier.

Homemade drinks – Hot or cold but not as sugary

Yes, yes, still water is healthier, from the tap when you are lucky or bottled water. And yes, yes, breastmilk is better for babies and Moms (except in serious cases). (WHO recommendations on infant feeding:

But when you want to indulge yourself… and especially for cold drinks, industrial products add tons of sugar. On the labels at my place, I can read 120g of sugar per litre for organic syrup. I can read the same amount of sugar for products that are not going to be diluted: still in my country, organic fruit juice peaks at nearly 100g/l and Coca-Cola at 128g/l. These are what I call directly sending formal invitations to diabetes!

So, yes, you can indulge yourself from time to time with a sweet drink if you don’t overdo it. The recommended daily dose of sugar is 25 g/day or six teaspoons.

I suggest three healthy recipes that can be drunk hot or cold. It’s to get you started! Afterwards, you will invent your own recipes.

1) Infusion of rosehip (rich in vitamin C): Put a bag of rosehip infusion in the teapot. Add simmering and not boiling water. Enjoy without sugar or sweeten with raspberry or blackcurrent syrup.

2) Green tea with mint (good for digestion): Use simmering, non-boiling water, which you pour over a bag of green tea and fresh mint previously placed in the teapot. Remove the tea after 2-3 minutes, leave the mint for at least 10 minutes. Drink as it is or mix with a spoonful of organic wholemeal sugar or organic lemon syrup or organic sureau flowers syrup.

3) Green tea with lime or yellow lemon (good for the liver): Cut the lemon into pieces. Place the black tea of your choice in the teapot (Earl Grey or Russian Earl Grey for me). Use simmering, non-boiling water, which you pour over a tea bag. Remove tea after 2-3 minutes; leave the lemon. Blend with a spoonful of organic wholemeal brown sugar (optional).

You can also press the lemon directly into the glass – Healthy soda:
