Score Your Diet for Health, Environmental and Social Justice
Score your food for quality and sustainability considerations including health, environment and animal welfare
A quick check-list to show how your diet scores on nutrition, the environment, and animal welfare.
Scores are affected by such considerations as:
- Health: saturated fat, cholesterol, dietary fiber, calcium, vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, correlations of foods with cancer, heart disease, etc.
- Environment: air and water pollution from manure, cattle belching, production and overuse of fertilizer, and pesticides; depletion of groundwater; unnecessary use of land to produce feed grains and soil erosion; over-grazing.
- Animal welfare: castration, hot-iron branding, debeaking, detailing, cramped cages and feedlots, cattle feed high in grain, and inhumane shipping and slaughterhouse practices.
