News, and a suggestion...

Hiya everyone!

I've got another interesting article for you: here!

What do you all think about eating fewer animal products to help save the environment? Did you know that livestock farming generates more C02 than transport? In fact, raising animals for meat and milk creates 18% of the world's carbon emissions.

Luna and I have been trying to get more ethical and environmentally-friendly options in the Delavigne canteen, and we were wondering how everyone would feel about a meat-free day once a week... Answers on a postcard, in the suggestion box, or as a comment on this post please!

P.S. Horatio, your prank involving a raw alligator steak on Luna's desk was neither funny nor clever. Give it a rest.

Hi Hannah!
I'll try immediately to have two weekly meet-free days. I'm not ready to become a vegeterian , but I think it's too expensive to eat meat everydays and , you're right, it's better for health; However, my husband and two of my three children enjoy meat. how can I do?
Regards

Hiya Hannah,
I have taken some time before expressing my thanks for your greenest announcement about turning vegeterian. In fact I wanted to experience something before speaking.

For sure your militancy is due to your British origin that allows you to get aware, along with Luna, of the aftereffects of American food. To support your position on the matter, I'd say that the David by Michelangelo has just returned to Florence after a two months tour in USA. He is now obese! He couldn't help going round the MacDO, Burger King, KFC and other Starbucks. The problem is that in Florence he could keep fattening up with macaronis. Some Italian citizens who are fad on vegeterain food - believe me or not, there are some - suggested that the David go to Africa.
It is worldwide known that Africa is the cradle of Humanity. - That spiteful gossip to which Africans still stay in theirs cradles, is out of order here. - The most famous African universities have all proved that the best indicated food for individual health and environment either is a diet exclusively based on bananas. Please don't take it rashly, lately Africa has been recognized as the cot of the latest world leader.
Bananas are very rich in K and Mg: Good for brain, good against muscles cramps. Bananas are full of vitamin B6: good for pancreas. Bananas are stuffed with Fe: good for blood. And so on, bananas are the best prevention against depression, constipation, hangover, heartburn, early morning sickness, seasonal affective disorders, and so on for some pages. Bananas have not a single contraindication.
If with the help of Luna you could turn all the Delavigne staff into bananas-eaters, there would be some points to mind. First and foremost, mind not to slip on one of the many banana peels you'd be doomed to come across on your way to work. Bend forwards and pick up one banana peel and rub your ears and tongue with it, it's good for hearing and speaking smoothly. Resist temptation to gulp it down.
You might also ram your pockets with banana peels because they could be useful at work as you have to speak a lot with your retailers. If you were short of an adjective at speaking, take a banana peel and insert it into your say. Clifton Fadiman who is known for having banana peels down to a science, said that "the adjective is the banana peel of the parts of the speech." Ponder a bit, it's worth it because that saying shouldn't be taken upside down.
A second thing to mind is to avoid letting your fellow-staves believe you are a female clique of banana republic-to-be company. They could remember that man turned into an ape as he ate the first banana. It happened in Africa but they could fear to be repositioned in Horatio's lab. Tell them than before eating bananas man was an idiot because he didn't know that the fastest way to be promoted in the company is by aping the CEO. You could post this tip on the noticeboard "If you don't want to go bananas, eat bananas."

As for me, I have been convinced by your campaign and I went beyond by gulping down 3 bunches of bananas a day. As the saying goes, it keeps the doctor away!
Be in good shape as an ape, Hannah. Be funky as a monkey.

Hi to everybody,

I like it very much that you started the discussion about vegetarianism.
I myself stopped eating meat after some scandals in the meat production here in Germany three years ago. The public authorities found out that in supermarkets or restaurant meat was sold that was many years over the expiration date. After eating at a kebab shop and feeling sick for some days afterwards (don't want to give datails) I tried to inform myself about meat production, which was quite easy that time, because of many documentary reports in the newspapers or television.

For me the most important reason to become vegetarian was that in meat production animals are treatet like goods/commodities. They are grown up first of all under the criterion of productivity, which includes giving them hormones for faster growth or antibiotics against infections.

The imagination to eat this kind of meat makes me feel sick and I feel very happy not to eat it any more.

All the best to everybody trying to eat less meat.
This will certainly make animals suffer less.
