What utter rubbish

If we were to shift to a more plant based diet (not totally plant based - that would be unhealthy, we need some meat) then we could shut down a lot of the processing plants for grain and corn, herbicide, pesticide and fertilizer use would decrease and the industrial waste from processing plants that package all the sugary, starchy rubbish they try to pass off as food could be closed down. These would all have a far more beneficial effect on the environment. Plus less wheat and gluten would mean a lot less disease, fewer drugs needed, less medical treatment required, less hospitalisation. This needs to be where we are focusing our research. These authors/researchers have a very narrow minded approach.
