    I really liked this article, and some points are really well put and presented.
    I would also like to add the fact that, regarding bottled water, besides the negative effects plastic bottles have on the environment, for each liter to reach us, it requires up to 2,000 times more energy than regular tap water. Production, transport, storage and so on. It is said that for every liter of bottled water, a manufacturer uses some 30 plus liters of gas and another 3 liters of water.
    And in a world where places like California are literally running out of water, this is a particularly bad thing. With the exception of a few countries like Somalia, where the government is more or less nonexistent, tap water is safe to drink.

    This article is not well researched. Rice Krispies treats are NOT gluten free. Rice Krispies contain malt which is made of barley. Barley contains gluten. French fries can contain gluten because wheat is often used to help bind ingredients together. Not all fries are made from whole potatoes – just look at the ingredient list. Articles like this cause celiacs to get glutenated by well meaning friends and family.

    I would like to quote Ron White on this matter:

    Why are you a vegetarian?’ I asked him. And it wasn’t even because meat is bad for you. He said that raising cattle was bad for the planet — with cow flatulence in the ozone and the clearing of land for the raising of cattle. ‘What are you doing to help the environment?’

    I’m eating the cow.

    In recent years [comma] soy milk, which was once considered more of a niche drink you’d see in a health food store, has become a full blown fad.
