From the Bronx to Dealey Plaza, Garry Winogrand pounded the streets of America every day of his life photographing reluctant subjects – and he left behind 6,500 undeveloped films when he died. A powerful new retrospective makes sense of the torrent of imagery by the prolific American master
Most people associate soy with tofu and soy milk. However, only a small portion of soy is consumed directly by humans. In fact, most of the world’s soy crop ends up in feed for poultry, pork, cattle and even farmed fish. The expansion of soy to feed the world’s growing demand for meat often contributes to deforestation and the loss of other valuable ecosystems in Latin America.
To grow soybeans, vast expanses of land are needed. Production is overtaking huge areas in fragile ecosystems such as:
- The Brazilian Cerrado (a relatively flat, mixed woodland and savannah area of central Brazil),
- the Amazon,
- the Chaco, and
- the Atlantic Forests of South America.
This threatens wildlife and biodiversity. It also adversely affects people, the global climate, water reserves and soil quality.
In South America, almost 4 million hectares of forests are destroyed every year, 2.6 million of them in Brazil alone.
Limiting (or you know, completely avoiding) consumption of animal-based food products, particularly meat, is one thing people can do to help end this devastating trend.
