I'm curious about what people think of the ecological/environmental ramifications of maintaining a raw diet depending on where one lives... ?
For example, I live in central Canada. Our growing season is obviously shorter than areas further south. A lot of vegetables are local, wheat (but i guess you don't eat wheat if you eat raw), some grains, some berries, some meager apples (like crab apples) I think soy is also a local crop... but aside from that, everything else is shipped and transported into the city. With the whole eco/carbon footprint debate now-a-days... how do people think this idea translates to eating raw AND eating local? I'm just trying to think how people living very far north (like in Alaska or the Northern Canadian Territories) would eat raw and their impact on the environment when you take into consideration transportation issues, vs that of a largely local (but not raw) diet...
thoughts on the matter are appreciated...
nothing compared to raising animals for years just for a few meals and how much animals "ahem" add to the whole global warming thing, oh yeah i wonder how the animals take their gains. just saying if everyone was vege we would havent worry about global warming or world hunger.
