Thanks for the story, but now it seems like there is not much left to eat after these top 100 items to avoid!

curious to know if there is a corresponding article and research on what you CAN eat. I think that given this (care 2) is an international site, recommending that you don't eat rice is a bit unrealistic when it is a staple for much of the world. Perhaps this article could come with a note that if you are living in the USA, and have the money to do so, avoid these foods? Thanks for the for thought.

got to agree, the list is pretty insane. All farming causes some effect on the environment. Pretty much all food comes in some kind of packaging. the article is way beyond excessive.

Honestly, just by being alive you cause waste and consume resources. There are definitely steps you can take to reduce waste, but at the same time we need to eat! Another thing: With the thing about not consuming coffee, tropical fruits, sugar, etc., I realize that they can be environmentally destructive, but at the same time it supports 3rd world economies. When I buy Latin American foods, I often go for the brands that are from there instead of American brands because I want to support their economies. Just a humanitarian perspective.
