Swedish Government Bans Beef, Lamb, Pork and Chicken
Swedish authorities are the first in Europe to develop guidelines on climate-friendly food choices. The Swedish National Food Administration has been working with the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency to produce food recommendations that include information on the impact of food on climate and the environment, in addition to the health aspects. The document, ‘Environmental-friendly food choices’ begins: "Meat – beef, lamb, pork and chicken is the food group that has the greatest impact on the environment.
I already follow most of the Swedish rules. I dont eat pork or lamb. I do eat turkey schnitzels. And beef of freely roaming Brasilian cattle raised on natural grass. Only from cattle killed by Godfearing Jewish butchers.
I dont know whose dietetic laws are crazier, the Swedish or ours.
