LAMS402 Eating and the Environment 3cr


Eating and the Environment focuses on the impact
that our daily food purchases and consumption
make on the environment and our health.  In the
class, we will examine major themes related to
both industrialized and sustainable agriculture,
including: soil resources and pollution; water
and air pollution; pesticides, herbicides and
fertilizers; the farm bill; tropical
deforestation; food additives and nutritional
supplements; food safety and emerging infectious
diseases; meat and dairy sustainability
ramifications; GMOs; and climate change. This
course gives students the tools they need to
understand what constitutes environmentally
friendly and healthy food. Choosing these leads
to a higher quality of life in many ways.  There
is no bigger impact on Earth than agriculture.
And food consumption has the single largest
impact on our health.
