Vlog 30: Food

Steve introduces the next topic on the vlog: food, and how what we eat reflects our values. Micael is joined by Sarah in a response talking about why they are vegan: not depriving others of food in a world where we have too many people to all eat meat and other animal products. Deborah concludes by talking about how we eat rather than what we eat.
