5 Unbelievable Things That Would Happen If Everyone Stopped Eating Meat - I nourish gently

About two weeks ago I posted an article on the 7 Things You Didn’t Know Will Happen When You Stop Eating Meat, which was a piece focused on what would happen with an individual’s health, wellbeing and lifestyle when they quit meat for good.

<em>$2.00 a Day: Living on Almost Nothing in America</em>

In just 15 years, since President Bill Clinton’s notorious welfare “reform” of 1996, the number of households living at such a severe state of deprivation had doubled. Kathryn Edin and H.

Two dollars a day is the figure the World Bank uses to designate absolute poverty, including in countries with median incomes far below the US per capita.

Bicycle Helmets. I received the following question in the topic suggestions page: I recently got into a debate about the efficacy of bicycle helmets and — as someone who wears a helmet religiously and credits one with once saving me from serious injury — I was amazed to find that the research into this subject is… well, I’m not sure if “messy” or “inconclusive” is the right word: insight you could provide into this would be much appreciated.
