Ok, here's the thing. I am convinced that the primal lifestyle is the best way to go from a health perspective but I am having trouble debating this with my wife who insists (and I can't refute) that a meat-eating lifestyle is way more taxing on the environment in terms of consumption of water and and impact of beef etc on the land than it is to base your diet around organic vegetables for example. I can win the anti-grains debate, but find it difficult to argue that an optimum meat focussed diet for everyone on the planet is environmentally sustainable - there just isn't enough land or resources. So, does it follow that while the grain-based agricultural revolution is responsible for the massive population boom on our planet, can we then advocate a meat-focussed diet for all. Or is this diet just the privilege of the westernised middle-class few who have the means and privilege to eat the best quality foods - even though this diet has a greater environmental impact on the planet - especially if everybody did it? I've looked around on the site for an answer to these concerns but couldn't find it. Would love Mark to chime in if he has a take on this. Cheers
