Veganism: A Fad? Or the Future of Food?

While we haven’t done as much on veganism lately as we once did when Justin was submitting posts regularly, we’re still mindful of the impacts of the traditional animal-based diet on the environment and human health. So, while many will call this lifestyle choice a “fad” encouraged by the celebrity set, we know that veganism is a solid option for a healthy lifestyle… and is easier on the planet. Though we don’t all practice veganism, understanding the impacts of our food choices helps us make those choices knowingly… not the kind of mindset normally associated with the American diet.
So, why is the vegan lifestyle growing in the US? Sure, it’s presence in popular culture makes a difference… but it’s also clear from the infographic below that many Americans are becoming more mindful of their food choices, and aligning those choices with their values. We’re impressed, and applaud anyone who decides to make such a change… for whatever reason (because nearly all of them are really good ones!).

Are you a vegan? Why’d you choose a diet and lifestyle that rejects all forms of animal products? Any particular inspirations? Share your thoughts with us… we’d love to learn more!

"The Gene Hackers"

Science, Tech & Disrupt
 By Michael Specter via

A powerful new technology enables us to manipulate our DNA more easily than ever before. “Imagine being able to manipulate a specific region of DNA . . . almost as easily as correcting a typo,” CRISPR’s unprecedented ability to edit genetic code will make possible a new generation of medical treatments.

For much of the past century, biology has been consumed with three essential questions: What does each gene do? How do we find the genetic mutations that make us sick? And how can we overcome them? With CRISPR, the answers have become attainable, and we are closing in on a sort of grand unified theory of genetics.

CRISPR technology offers a new outlet for the inchoate fear of tinkering with the fundamentals of life. There are many valid reasons to worry. But it is essential to assess both the risks and the benefits of any new technology.
