Alice Waters–Expensive Meat Means Less Meat

Alice Waters is one of the Michael Pollans in the food world.

Not vegetarian, and maybe showing no intentions of going there, she does support eating less meat and using locally grown items to lessen our environmental impact.

One way to get people to eat less meat is to raise the price of it.

Organic, grass fed varieties of meat cost more, and if more people who are part time vegetarians choose to only buy this option, it may greatly reduce the number of animals being raised for food.

“I eat meat, but no meat that isn’t pastured is acceptable, and we probably need to eat a whole lot less.,” Waters told MNN. “But by choosing to eat only pasture-fed, that encourages you to eat differently: “If I can’t get real meat, I don’t want it.” And since it’s more expensive, you’re inclined to eat less.”

What’s your take on Water’s opinion?

Will promoting the consumption of only pasture fed or “ethically raised” meat effectively lessen the numbers of animals raised for food?

Would it be easier to get people to spend more money to only buy these types of meats or convince them eating no meat at all is a better option?
