If you want to argue that people should eat from their locale

That is the macrobiotic basic priciple.... but they really mean eat as if you were living off of the land (on a simple non-technological farm in your locale). Also, your lifestyle should center around the farm. (i.e. work and live on it). That is why cows and milk are so prevalent in primitive diets... it's very easy to let a cow eat the grass in the fields. But now consider this..... a well respected Hare Krishna devotee told me that modern milk has tremendous bad karma, because of all the calves slaughtered.

So is milk good for the peasant farmer, living off of the land, but bad karma for office workers who buy it from corporate farms, who slaughter calves to maximize production?

I'm not going to judge for you, you must decide for yourself.

Finally even macrobiotics has levels of eating principles.... ranging from "survival to, religous, highest spiritual understanding.

At the religous level, all sorts of stuff are taboo. At the scientific level, you eat according to scientific guidlines. At the highest level, you can eat anything you want. :-) ..... but you also are required to be fully responsible for the karma.

Yeah.... old karma rears its head again. I will only say it is up to you to decide what is good and right for you, (privately I get away with alot of bad karma, by blaming the land-ownership-food-supply system...... I blame the DEA for my drinking, why? Because they made the alternative illegal.... it's their karma. :-) God laughs.

I'm not really a human, but I play one on earth. Cogito ergo sum a bum
