My Reflection:

This unit has blown me away with crazy facts and statistics. I’ve learned how we humans are making unhealthy decisions-- decisions that may seem innocent-- but are actually harmful to our planet and future generations to come. Some crazy things I’ve learned is farmers barely exist anymore, the amount of meat Americans consume in a week--let alone in a month, how if our diets of so much meat continues then chickens, cows, and pigs will out live humans, humans and global warming, and basically how everything we eat/use affects the environment someway, somehow, and could hurt us in the long run.

I was--still am-- astonished by these facts and statistics I’ve learned this unit. This unit has definitely changed my mind on how I go about life for the greater good. I’m wondering if others would do same with all this newfound knowledge.
