Fall Athenaeum Series, Wednesday, Nov. 17, Noon Sadie’s Place in Kent Library How Does Your Stomach Impact the Environment?

Every day the average American consumes three meals in addition to snacks. Each food decision is a balance of cost, convenience, taste, and nutrition (often considered in that order for many of us). But what about the environment? How do your daily food choices affect the environment? Many of us vote for political candidates based on our personal beliefs, yet we might not consider that every time we place a fork in our mouth we are either voting for a system that practices poor environmental stewardship or a system that strives for a cleaner environment. This presentation will discuss how your daily food voting affects nutrient pollution, antibiotic resistance, genetic diversity, and climate change.
