This food system will not self-correct. We need a new consensus involving all stakeholders on how to make the food systems more responsive to human needs, what this would look like, and how it will be managed.
We may be threatened with murder for making a documentary on fatness. But fatphobia isn't real, right?

The trick is in the arrowroot starch, liquid sweetener, and vodka.
I love my fennel and orange salad, but nothing makes my wilted spinach taste better than a touch of bacon. I also grow and eat my own tomatoes and this salad with olives and capers makes my day, but the addition of anchovies makes the salad.
My point today, on Earth Day, is that it doesn't matter if meat-based eating is good or even best for human health. It doesn't work in modern context. We can't have our population in excess of 7 billion, and eat our daily side of beef, too.
Might I suggest two strategies to ensure that all of the meat you consume be delicious and satisfying to both mouth and soul?

Being different has taught me to be less judgmental. Vegetarians and tattooed peeps may be the norm for you, and it ain't no big thing. You might still think differently about people because of these two things, that they are different than you. Those are just aspects of the person.
I never had to say nectarine, so I knew it -- and quince and honeydew and eggplant and persimmon and cucumber and more -- only in Farsi. I just didn't have to use those words often enough in the presence of Americans to notice I hadn't learned them.
As he grows older, I hope that he will think critically about his food and understand that even dietary choices are moral decisions, and not simply made for health reasons or reasons of convenience.
