In their latest blog post, Jenny Sangler explains that she places a huge focus on making her readers aware of the dangers of foods. From pesticides to preservatives, she understands how careful vegetarians need to be when shopping in modern supermarkets.
She then explains how an article in the New York Daily News is showcasing to the world how once-carnivorous plants, those who ate insects and small creatures, are evolving to become vegetarian. This is because the plants know that their original sources of food are no longer safe.
Researchers believe that pollution is also a huge factor contributing towards the shift.
“The article explains that nitrogen from the air is absorbed by the soil when it rains and that having so much nitrogen in the soil due to air pollution is making it unnecessary for plants to eat bugs to get their nitrogen,” says Jenny.
She then outlines a study that was conducted in the UK. The team studied plants that live in areas with high levels of acid rain. They found that, the more polluted air is, the fewer bugs plants are eating.
“I find this extremely disturbing and I think its all the more reason to reduce the amount of fossil fuels we use and to recycle as much as possible to cut down on the pollutants released by factories and manufacturing plants,” Jenny adds.
Jenny then urges her readers to do one thing this week to help make their community cleaner, in the hope that this pollution will decrease.
She makes useful and practical suggestions such as taking the bus to work, re-suing glass jars and disposing of plastics as quickly as possible.
