    I chose number 5 because food has a role in tackling climate change, and our agricultural and food systems are a major starting point in this sense. And we need to look at the way we farm, the way we eat, the way we use our natural resources. Agriculture emits about a quarter of greenhouse gases, but it also holds many solutions for achieving the world's climate goals. Meeting the climate challenge begins with transforming food and agriculture.

    Every action we take, from reclaiming degraded land to eliminating food waste, must help our global communities adapt to new pressures, such as population growth and urbanization, while protecting the planet's resources and biodiversity.

      Thank you alert_ostrich for this thoughtful contribution; you recognise how important it is for everyone to reflect on their food choices and be aware of ways to reduce wastage. Is there a way that you can think of to spread this message globally?

    The food we eat does not affect our health but also the earth! For example, for example, nuts are described as healthy snacks, because they help maintain healthy weight and reduce the risk of heart and diabetes. But you know that the production of one bead needed a gallon of water in California, which is grown 80% of Almond in the world. The production of these quantities of almonds made California faces the risk of destructive drought, because almond alone is responsible for consumption of nearly 10% of agricultural water in the state. So if you are interested in maintaining the environment and also want to follow a healthy diet at the same time, is almonds are a good choice? And other agricultural or animal products that threaten their consumption of the planet.

      This is a great example of how we should consider the pros and cons of solutions when problem-solving.

      When compared to meat consumption, are almonds still a better choice? Are there alternatives to almonds?

    i choose number 5 becuase actually we need to prevent some food that increase gas emission and cause alot of disease for people. in my country farmers used alot of chemical with many plants espically zucchini. here in gaza zucchini is very expensive so they used chemical material to help in growing fast so it can be harmful to the envirnment and people to. it cased cancer to many people her. yes we can stop tis kind of food and used other alternatives

    I chose number 3 because we cannot completely prevent people from eating the foods that they used to eat for centuries, which are part of the culture of some countries, such as meat and fats, so you will not prevent them, but we will work to reduce them significantly, and this convinces people to stand in our side because they are the first solution To reduce climate change

    I chose the number 5 and strongly agree to ban some foods and the top of the food ban list is red meat (pork, lamb, goat, and beef) as well as processed meat because it has the most negative environmental impact among all foods, and is associated with the highest increase in Possible diseases. Here pork is forbidden for Muslims to eat because God Almighty has forbidden eating it because it is a filthy animal that feeds on excrement and dirt harmful to humans. Eating it leads to eating beef, lamb and processed meat, increasing the risk of coronary heart disease later in life, and it is called Coronary artery disease, the leading cause of death worldwide, develops when fatty deposits of cholesterol cause plaque to build up on the walls of the arteries that supply blood to the heart.

        When talking about the carbon emissions that result from the food we consume, some unhealthy foods may have an unexpected advantage over others that we consider healthy.

        At a time when humans are facing the threat of global warming, we are constantly becoming more aware that our every intervention in nature will have an impact on the environment. This is also true of the food we eat.

        The processes of growing food, packing it in factories, or transporting it in the form of goods, all work through the combustion of fossil fuels, which results in what is known as greenhouse gases, which lead to heat retention in the atmosphere. I say that meat and dairy products come at the base of that pyramid, causing Thus, the greatest proportion of harm to the environment, while fruits and vegetables come at the top of that pyramid, because they are among the “environmentally friendly” foods, as they help preserve the environment greatly.

        Whole-grain foods, such as bread and pasta, as well as sweets, are roughly in the middle of that food pyramid.

        However, this method does not focus on the amount of energy absorbed by the body from those foods, but rather on the degree of environmental damage resulting from its consumption after the processes it has undergone, beginning with agriculture,

    chose the number (3), I agree, and let it be reduced consumption, not cutting it, because the public cannot cut it out from the beginning, and let it be gradually, because red meat, animal foods and dairy are one of the drivers of the climate crisis. 29 percent for plants. It accounts for a quarter of the emissions from animal foods. Annual greenhouse gas emissions from food production amount to 17 billion metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent or 35 percent of all human emissions around the world...

      I believe that climate change is caused by human activities such as industrial production, vehicle exhaust and logging, and I believe that these human activities increase the concentration of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases, and if the current trend in carbon emissions continues, temperatures will increase degrees Celsius from the point of view of In my theory, this increase will have a harmful impact on different regions, for example, its impact on agriculture will be more harmful in the tropics and in the temperate regions. I think that this effect will be more harmful and vulnerable to it. The developing countries are due to a reduction in the area of ​​agricultural land and its potential productivity, but they have to adapt With this climate change

    2- There are some diseases that these foods can treat.
    3- It helps countries to reduce emissions and save money.

    In my opinion, avoiding eating meat and dairy is one of the most important ways by which we can reduce the negative effects that we cause to the environment. But what is the difference between beef and chicken? Does a plate of rice produce more greenhouse gases than a plate of fried potatoes? Is wine more environmentally friendly than beer? According to what I read in articles, food production is the cause of a quarter of greenhouse gas emissions and contributes significantly to the warming of our planet. We must consume less meat, milk, cheese and butter, and we must eat more seasonal, locally produced foods, and reduce the amount of food we dispose of in the garbage.

    ketchup, because its danger lies in the amount of sugar it contains, as 70% of the added sugars are hidden under complex names that are difficult to pronounce (such as fructose, dextrose or maltodextrin) and the sugar content can reach 22 grams per 100 grams.
    To choose the right product from this product, you should check the percentage of carbohydrates specified in the product label, bearing in mind that the main criticism of this sauce is the high sugar content compared to tomatoes.

    I chose number 5, because it is true that some foods like fast food should be banned, and we all agree that fast food causes diseases and obesity, especially in the winter when we get dressed. People look at us with pity, either because of obesity caused by clothes or the problem of obesity. And in light of Corona, sugars should be prohibited because they weaken immunity and allow the virus to form very quickly, especially at the time of the virus’s spread, whether in summer or winter.

Examples of these foods that must be banned from the world first are potato chips, which must be reduced for your safety, and also soda, because it is rich in sugar and calories, and an increase in it leads to It leads to weight gain and affects the functions in the immune system, as well as sweets, because they are full of sugar, such as chocolate, and also fast food, such as burgers, because they contain a high percentage of fat and calories, and may lead to the risk of heart disease and diabetes.

But there are more things that cause global warming more and we should focus more on them such as environmental pollution from factories and chemicals and fertilizers.

    From my point of view, I think there are foods that should be banned because they cause global warming, for example, unhealthy processed foods. To manufacture them, we need factories, and the smoke from factories that comes from the work of machines contributes greatly to the emergence of global warming.
    The large number of factories in Gaza and the polluted smoke resulting from it, led to a high rate of global warming in Gaza, and the evidence for this is the delay in the olive season last year.

    By displaying the calories burned and the food we ate, we were able to gain a lot of facts and trust. Coca-Cola has a high calorie of about 452 calories, and I was surprised that the shocked dairy products were transparent and indispensable because they contained calories. It starts with 55870 calories. What surprised me most was that I continued to eat and consumed a large number of calories. Not surprisingly, there were many foods such as vegetables and fruits. I wasn't surprised to find that it was a portion of healthy and nutritionally balanced food. Yes, there are many habits that will change in the future, such as eating meat. Rich in dairy products, eat small amounts to protect your health and the environment. And I chose the third one because, In some countries, the economy depends on its product. For example, avocado. If I don't eat it, I can't get immunity to the disease, and moreover, the avocado industry because Mexico is the most productive avocado country that is part of its economy and the work of its people. Offers 40,000 jobs and 70,000 seasonal jobs Completely banned, we intend to live in the economic decline where it is difficult to increase the people of Mexico, that is, we are the economy, the people, Many aspects must be considered, such as the individual, and the impact it has on rejection, or the acceptance of these decisions, and why avocados do not actually harm human health like pigs. If we ask me if we can't do without avocados like pigs, we first consider their health effects, not just individuals, and what we love.

    I chose number 5 because in my country red meat is very popular because it can be found all around us, but I feel it should be banned because it accounts for 41% of greenhouse gas emissions.
    Aside from global warming and gas emissions, red meat is more likely to cause heart diseases, such as heart attacks. High sodium content in red meats can lead to high blood pressure.
    With these reasons I think red meat should be banned in my country and we should eat normal meat.

We draw the pyramid according to what you think. What will you write at the bottom and what will you write at the top? I think that we should put healthy food that does not affect the climate much at the bottom, such as seasonal crops (olive, citrus). I chose this option because it has the least impact on the climate, and at the top of the pyramid we will put the food that affects the climate because the top of the pyramid will be About a small triangle inside a big triangle and there are some foods like meat, milk, cheese and butter

Healthy foods that do not produce many greenhouse gases will be at the bottom of the pyramid. These foods should be focused on, and in the middle of the pyramid will be foods that produce moderate amounts of emissions, and at the top of the pyramid will be foods that produce Greenhouse gases in large quantities and these foods should be avoided.

    Yes, I would like to think about healthy foods. Yes, there is something like rice that can be replaced in bulgur, and this is more useful than rice. I do not want to because I do not know the qualities of the world.

    Let us win the bet in staying in a clean climate free of climate change. All studies and research have put to the public the most dangerous foods that are on the throne of destroying the climate. After this information, does the situation remain as it is, or does the responsibility and duty require us to take a decisive decision?? And reduce the use of such foods?? In order to keep a danger away from our climate before it is too late!!! The pollution from these foods comes either from the carbon emissions emanating from the means of transporting these foods from one place to another, or the way in which these foods are produced to reach the markets.

    In the first place comes beef (26.5 kilograms of CO2 per kilogram), as the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations indicated that animal agriculture contributes to generating 14.5 percent of emissions of gases harmful to the environment globally, and of these emissions, 65 percent come From beef and livestock

    Here are the ten foods that are on the throne of the destructive impact of climate

    beef

    Beef is on the throne of the destructive impact of foods on the climate, as a study by "The Natural Resources Defense Council" indicated that it saves 26.5 kilograms of CO2 per kilogram.

    lamb meat

    Lamb comes in second place (22.9 kilograms of CO2 per kilogram).

    Butter

    (12 kilograms of CO2 per kilogram)

    sea ​​food

    (11.7 kilograms of CO2 per kilogram)

    cheeses

    (9.8 kilograms of CO2 per kilogram)

    asparagus

    It is the only vegetable to reach the list with 8.9 kilograms of CO2 per kilogram, due to the need to transport it by air from Latin America, which means more carbon emissions than those vegetables transported by land.

    pork

    (Kilograms of CO2 per kilogram)

    veal

    The reason veal emits less emissions than beef is because the animals are slaughtered when they are younger, and one kilo of veal generates 7.8 kilograms of CO2

    chicken

    Reducing the United States' consumption of chicken reduces the amount of emissions that can be reduced per capita, but chicken is still in the top ten environmentally harmful foods, with emissions of more than 5 kilograms of CO2 per kilogram.

    Turkey meat

    Turkey emission is close to that of one kilogram of chicken, with about five kilograms of CO2 emissions.

    For me, and from my point of view, I think that there are some foods that can be banned, such as poultry meat, which causes global warming, and although these foods cannot be completely dispensed with, it is possible to reduce their production and find alternatives that achieve the same benefit. And also beef, as cow waste leads to an increase in methane gas in the air and an increase in global warming And also global warming has a negative impact on my community, so suggesting appropriate solutions to reduce this global warming is better than that society becomes a negative impact because of this thing.

    1) Ketchup: the reason for its danger may be in the amount of sugar it contains, as 70 percent of the added sugars are hidden
    2) Dried pasta (noodles): The most important criticism of it is the amount of flavorings mixed with it in addition to how it is marketed and contains this film On additional sides

For instance, nuts are depicted as sound bites, since they assist with keeping up with solid weight and lessen the danger of heart and diabetes.

Different types of meat, but they can lead to diseases and serious health problems, so it has become clear the tone of the vegetarian song around the world, 1) that red meat in general contains varying amounts of fats and proteins, and also contains vitamins and minerals necessary to build the body and maintain health 2) It undertakes Meat with the hardening of blood vessels: Scientists have revealed that a compound found in red meat causes atherosclerosis and hardening of the arteries and blood vessels 3) Risk of bacterial infection. 4) The risk of developing type 2 diabetes: when eating red or processed meat can increase over time the risk of developing type 2 and diabetes::;; You must take care of your health and be more careful

Soft drinks: Soft drinks pose a great danger to human life because they contain preservatives, carbon dioxide and a sweetener such as sugar, in addition to colorings and flavors (2): ketchup: contains preservatives that cause harm and lead to obesity and weak immunity.

    There are some foods that can be prepared to obtain a benefit in the air and the atmosphere and also to maintain optimal health. There are also foods that should be reduced or attended completely from the list of the ideal healthy food from the harmful substances that cause the least amount of natural gases, so a healthy diet should be followed as little as It is said that he is a kind of vegetarian. There are people who follow healthy diets that include all plants, and full-fat foods should not be substituted, and there are foods that can be replaced instead of meat and high phosphorous in food, so the food must be shortened and reduced on a regular basis and there is no extinction or increase significantly

Beef is also the one that causes a lot of damage to the environment so we must consume less meat and other animal products, as well as avoiding eating  yoghurt that lowers your carbon footprint.

One of the major sources of that are Beverages, sweets, oils and others which accounts for up to 21% of the Earth's green house gas emission from food. All in all, I believe that with able work, we can reduce the production of these food or maje healthy alternatives for these foods because asides from climate problems, there are health problems such as higher blood pressure, inflammation, weight gain, diabetes, and fatty liver disease.

    I chose the number five because there are many foods that are harmful to health, the environment and the climate, such as the burger, which is considered a fast food because it contains 34 grams of fat. Cheese is added to the burger and it contains a mixture of fat, sugar and cholesterol and contains a high calorie content of 576 calories, as in One piece. Therefore, countries and governments should reduce and abandon prohibited and fast foods by establishing a law that stipulates that those who eat prohibited meals must pay a fine.

Ever wondered how noodles don't stick together for the duration of storage? Rather, it flakes smoothly and without sticks in hot water if you put it in it? This is often due to the waxy substance that is covered with the instant noodles during manufacture, which you can notice when the water starts to boil, as it floats to the surface, which adds to the damage Numerous noodles.

I mean if you mean vegetables or fruit they are vital in our diet and if you live somewhere where that's one of the only things that grow no way. Yet if you ment a certain meat or something unhealthy with a ton of uneeded ingredients of course, yet you wouldn't be popular within the public.

Another point is that cows are very useful to the environment because they maintain the soil and if we keep on slaughtering them for meat, we could be hurting the planet. I chose number four as beef is preferred over other meats in quite a few areas even though very harmful to us and the environment.

    I chose number one because if you are thinking by banning foods like beef, meat, fish is a solution to solve this climate crisis, then you are wrong. In many countries and religions, these foods are iconic foods, for example, in Islam religion, believers are bound to eat beef in their biggest religious festival Eid. If you ban the foods, it would only show disrespect to one's belief or culture and result in religious unrest and conflicts among different nations. So I strongly disagree with the decision of banning particular foods to help the climate and urge to search for a new idea to solve that matter.

    From my point of view, I chose No. 5 because there is food that is harmful to human health, and work must be done to make them aware of that food and of harmful foods, chewing gum that contains a high percentage of sugar ... and works to fatigue the muscles of the jaw and neck ... and
    Long-term headache...and
    Sugar-free chewing gum contains laxatives...
    Increase the flow of saliva, which is why we must stand hand in hand to reduce food harmful to human health

    I picked number one since, supposing that you are thinking by forbidding food varieties like hamburger, meat, fish is an answer for address this environment emergency, then, at that point, you are incorrect.
    In numerous nations and religions, these food varieties are famous food varieties, for instance, in Islam religion, adherents will undoubtedly eat meat in their greatest strict celebration Eid. In the event that you boycott the food varieties, it would just show lack of respect to one's conviction or culture and result in strict distress and clashes among various countries.
    So I emphatically can't help contradicting the choice of forbidding specific food varieties to help the environment and inclination to look for a novel plan to settle that matter.

    I picked number 5 on the grounds that there are numerous food sources that are destructive to the environment and we can prohibit them or supplant them with different sorts that are harmless to the ecosystem. Along these lines, nations should imagine a food pyramid dependent on the harm that food causes to the environment, and residents should maintain it.

    The possibility of the environment food pyramid will resemble the possibility of the conventional food pyramid. Good food varieties that don't deliver numerous ozone depleting substances will be at the lower part of the pyramid. These food sources ought to be centered around, and in the pyramid will be food varieties that produce moderate measures of outflows, and at the highest point of the pyramid will be food sources that produce Greenhouse gases in huge amounts and these food varieties ought to be kept away from.

    The food we eat doesn't influence our wellbeing yet in addition the earth! For instance, for instance, nuts are depicted as solid tidbits, since they assist with keeping up with sound weight and diminish the danger of heart and diabetes. However, you realize that the development of one globule required a gallon of water in California, which is become 80% of Almond on the planet. The development of these amounts of almonds made California faces the danger of ruinous dry season, since almond alone is answerable for utilization of almost 10% of farming water in the state. So in case you are keen on keeping up with the climate and furthermore need to follow a solid eating routine simultaneously, is almonds are a decent decision? Also, other agrarian or creature items that undermine their utilization of the planet.

    The food we eat affects the earth and what is good for humans is always better for the planet.

    For example, nuts are touted as healthy snacks, as they help maintain a healthy weight and lower the risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes. So if you care about the environment and also want to eat a healthy diet at the same time, the purpose was to learn about the health impact of these foods on the one hand, and the losses they cause on the planet in terms of water and land use and greenhouse gas emissions that cause heat retention in the atmosphere and how they affect water and soil pollution.

    In my country, I eat red meat a lot, but it is very harmful to human health and the entire planet, but its abundance causes gout, cancer and heart disease. Red meat can be replaced with fish, poultry and mushrooms as a vegetable protein, and legumes are used as a substitute for animal protein. Therefore, we must reduce the animal husbandry that increases the problems of global warming.

    I agree and disagree because we don't need a lot of food but we do because more and more people are coming to the world but most of the food is getting wasted so we need to start no more wasting food that why i agree and disagree.

    I think we shouldn't ban foods. I think this because we should be able to eat what we wish. Fossil foods are a big problem to the environment. We could ban factories from using then or use cars less. This would have a much bigger impact than banning foods and people can still have the freedom to eat meat.

    I choose number 3 because if we banned ice than it would get our climate to not be cold but if we didn't it could be making droughts in some places because of water and if that would happen it would be quite bad for the planet because ice is made of water (liquid) and that would be using water to make ice but to help the climate we need more rain or ice to help otherwise our planet will over-heat.

    I chose number 3 because banning thing like dairy substitutes could affect others but banning things that everyone eats and enjoys could stur up trouble and issues so maybe do a vote to see things that aren't eaten that are a problem to the environment so that only a small percent are effected compared to a large percent being effected.

    I chose number 3 because I don't think foods should be banned forever. I think that there should be a limit to each food that encourages climate change so that it would be easier and quicker to take action on greenhouse gases.

    I think some food might be banded because of climate change meat and milk because climate change is making soo much gas did you now in 2019 each American person used 17 tons in a year that is as heavy as 4 elephants evey year and in 2040 85 million people will have died from climate change so if you make Thar little different it will change the world

    I chose strongly agree. Plant-based foods like beans, pulses, grains and soy tend to be the most climate-friendly options of all. However, people would rather have a succulent, mouth-watering burger with beef cheese and sauce. Beef is the biggest culprit, accounting for about 65 percent of all greenhouse gas emissions from livestock. Cattle produce methane, and they also require lots of carbon-intensive land. I believe that people should start to clean their diet and stop eating junk food that has a detrimental impact on the planet. At the same time, you hit two birds with one stone; not only do you prevent increase of climate change, but also you make yourself a healthier person.
