    Low footprint food choices are not the same as vegan food choices in all cases, the analysis is more complex than this. Generally a low footprint diet is local, seasonal food, and limits consumption of red meat, dairy, and some grains. Low footprint food choices are included in the draft Greenest City Action Plan and will be discussed through community engagement activities.

    veganism is the way to go. i am vegan not only for health reasons, but for environment reasons as well. no meat/dairy/egg industry, no fishing, no animal cruelty means:

    - much MUCH less impact on the environment: waste of fuel, 30lbs corn for 1lb of meat, water pollution, confined cattle creates new strains of viruses that end up not only killing humans through meat consumption, but especially many fish, plants through polluted water...
    - ending to animal cruelty: either against cattle, in slaughter houses, animals killed and tortured for their fur, teeth, skin, for human's "pleasure" (rodeos, e.g)
    - tremendous reduction in all the diseases that kill the "modern" man in the western world: obesity, cancers, osteoporosis, MS, coronary diseases, etc. all these epidemics cost us money than can be channeled toward more important social issues such as education, social problems, etc.
